FAQ ABOUT REBREATHERS
Open circuit divers considering transitioning to closed circuit diving need basic information about rebreather equipment and safety, course descriptions, costs and logistics. Without getting bogged down in too much detail, the best place to start may be to read our article Closed-Circuit Rebreather Instruction.
The digital solid state oxygen sensor (SSO2) is not a plug compatible replacement for the analog oxygen sensor and so currently only Poseidon devices can use the SSO2. To adapt the SSO2 to other brands of rebreathers would need a method to physically plumb the SSO2 in to the loop for monitoring using the Poseidon M28 dive computer, or a major revision to the rebreather controller electronics. For obvious reasons, Poseidon is not in a position to modify other brands of rebreathers. However, Poseidon is actively promoting their SSO2 technology to other rebreather manufacturers and we are aware that several rebreather manufacturers are looking at methods to provide one or the other solution, or both, as options.
