Being able to keep track of a group of divers underwater has been made much easier with the introduction of Liquivision’s new dive computer at this week’s DEMA 2012 in Las Vegas.
The Liquivision Lynx Air Integrated Computer allows you to monitor your own air supply, and your buddy’s air supply and directional location — within 100m/330ft, according to a company executive.
“It also is unique to the dive industry in that we have a range on our transmitter that far, far exceeds any other transmitter for a conventional [dive] computer because they use radio frequencies and we use sound technology,” the exec told DeeperBlue.com. Even with the guaranteed 100-meter range, “our testing is showing that it goes far beyond that,” he added.
Dive Masters can monitor up to nine other divers’ air supplies and get an indication of where they are in the water, using the Liquivision Lynx Omniscient Dive Master Kit, according to the exec. “So if you have somebody in a class, you can find them even in a low-visibility area,” he added.
Additionally, the system will allow dive charter guests to be able to find their way back to the dive boat, consequently improving dive charter safety.
