State of the Art Dive Computers
The VR computers are the most up to date computers on the market and we aim to keep them right there on the cutting edge of technology by adding useful options and fun features all the time. They are truly dive computers for the 21st century, interactive tools which meet the needs and match the lifestyle of those of you who are used to the advantages of mobile phones and PDAs in your surface existence and want similar technology to accompany you on your underwater adventures.
Convenient and user-friendly
User-changeable AA battery either 1.6V alkaline or 3.6V lithium Easy-to-open battery cap with purpose-built key External Switches mean the computers are fully programmable underwater Variable light settings Right / left wrist mountable,
Multi Gas Programmable
You can install up to 10 pre-set gases in the VR3's gas list; air, oxygen or any nitrox, trimix or heliox mixture. In the VR2 you can install up to 4 gases, air and nitrox mixtures only. The VR2 has a gauge mode so it can also double as a bottom timer. The great thing with the VR computers is that no matter which gases are in the gas list, if you ever start a dive and realise on the way down that you have forgotten to set a gas you can always do this underwater and then carry on with your dive, making the appropriate deco adjustments.
Colour your world!
Choose our VR2 Splash or VR3 Spectrum models and you will be the proud owner of the world's first full colour dive computer. With the backlight keeping the colours bright at any depth, you will be amazed at the difference from standard monochrome screens.
VR2s and VR3s grow with you as your diving career progresses. Start off with the base Air and Nitrox model and if you eventually get into rebreather diving you do not need a new dive computer, you just upgrade your VR2 or VR3. If you have a VR3 it will even grow with you when you get into trimix diving!
Unique Analyser function
With the optional analyzer mode enabled and cable fitted these are the only dive computers capable of operating also as an oxygen analyzer. Place the sensor on the end of the cable into the gas stream, measure the oxygen reading and set that into your gaslist. Very easy to use and saves you buying a separate analyzer.
With the optional rebreather mode enabled and the cable fitted the VR2 and VR3 are able to link up with both closed and semi-closed rebreathers to provide real time PO2 decompression monitoring and independent oxygen monitoring.
Integrated High Pressure Link
With our optional high pressure link cable connected and the appropriate software enabled, you can monitor your air or gas supply, measure your breathing rate and see at a glance how much time you have remaining at depth before you reach your reserve pressure.
Dive Logging Software
VR2 and VR3 owners can buy our Prodive dive logging software package that will enable them to download dives from your dive computer into a PC as well as upload gas profiles. A sample ProDive CD is supplied free of charge with each computer so that you can see how the programme works.
Reliable decompression algorithm.
Proplanner was one of the first desk top decompression software programmes and it forms the basis for the decompression algorithm in the VR2 and VR3. It is based on the Buhlmann ZHL 16 algorithm and, in line with current thinking in decompression science, incorporates 2 minute deep stops on the ascent. These are designed to reduce the formation of microbubbles, which are thought to contribute to decompression illness.
