Introducing the Suunto HelO2 dive computer, for technical diving enthusiasts, at the Philippine Boat Show Sea-Expo 2010, more than just a boat show – the complete nautical lifestyle event for anyone interested in water-sports, beach resorts and he lifestyle of the rich and famous.
The new Suunto HelO2 is an advanced mixed-gas dive computer rated to 120M/393 ft, for technical diving enthusiasts who use multiple gases (such as nitrox, trimix and oxygen) to deep dive deep, for longer. Featuring the Suunto Technical RGBM algorithm and a Multi-gas Dive Planner, the HelO2 is designed to make your whole technical diving experience simpler, faster, and more flexible. The algorithm extends decompression flexibility into the world of technical diving by allowing continuous decompression.
The Suunto Technical RGBM algorithm introduces helium tissue groups into the decompression model to enable trimix diving, as well as scuba diving on air and nitrox. It allows you to program eight gases as primary or secondary gases, and enables an oxygen content of 8-100%, and a helium content of 0-92%. In addition to increasing decompression flexibility, the Suunto Technical RGBM algorithm also reduces your decompression task load by removing the need to constantly monitor a slate and watch.
Of course, before you can descend to 100 m, or start exploring a cave system, you have to carefully plan your dive. The Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner – part of the updated Suunto Dive Manager PC software – is designed to simplify the planning of deep dive profiles, gases, and back-up plans. The easy-to-use graphical Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner allows you to try variations of depth, time, gases, and partial pressures without having to continually recalculate. The Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner calculates all changes instantly and presents the results on an easy-to-read graph.
When ready, you can simply transfer information relating to planned gases, and other dive-critical data, from the PC to your dive computer with the included USB cable – removing the need to copy all the calculations onto a slate. The Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner also gives you gas mixing instructions for your planned deep dive, which you can print out and take to a dive shop if you’re not mixing yourself.
The Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner enables you to plan a deep dive series based on your actual dive profiles – not planned dive profiles – making the plans for later deep dives in the series more accurate. The Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner also allows you to compare the planned dive and the actual dive by supporting the analysis of up to eight gases. This also helps you pinpoint elements of both your planning and diving that may need some fine-tuning.
So when you’re ready to take your scuba diving to the next level, plan your dive with the Suunto Multi-gas Dive Planner then dive your plan with the Suunto HelO2.
