DC Solar Dive Computer
The TUSA DC Solar Dive Computer is a tough solar powered dive computer meaning you never have to change a battery again. Tough and rugged rubber construction the Solar can be worn every day in the harshest of conditions and keep up with you. Bluetooth, 4 gas mixes, gauge and free dive mode mean this is the only dive computer most divers will ever need.
The screen of the computer is a solar panel that charges the computer by sunlight and indoor fluorescent light. The solar panel charging the internal battery means you never have to change the battery and compromise the seal or worry about missing a dive on holiday because of a flat battery.
The IQ1204 has all the dive modes most divers should ever need from Free Dive, Gauge and Nitrox. If you prefer to hold your breath the IQ1204 has Freedive mode with frequent depth measurements and only displaying relevant information with the capacity to record up to 7000 logs.
Dive Mode is for the Scuba divers with up to 4 gas mixes from 21-100% O2. Buhlmann ZHL-16C algorithm is a trusted algorithm that has been used by many other computers keeping you safe on your dive.
Gauge Mode is for when you just need a depth gauge and timer disconnecting the algorithm if you're on a rebreather or just need a backup.
> Solar Rechargeable
> Dive log transferable to smartphone using Bluetooth® SMART technology (TUSA Diving LOG app required)
> 4 Gas Mixes (21-100%), Gauge, and Free-Dive Mode
> AA Buhlmann ZHL-16C Decompression algorithm for safe and simple ascents
> Various time modes: Stopwatch, Timer, Alarm, World Time
> Full-Auto LED backlight
Rechargeable by sunlight or indoor fluorescent light. The solar rechargeable feature eliminates the need for battery replacements.
Bluetooth® SMART technology enables smartphones or tablets with the Diving LOG app downloaded to receive dive log data from the IQ1204 DC Solar Dive Computer via Bluetooth®.
4 Gas Mix
This advanced feature allows the diver to preset four individual gas mixtures (Mix 1, Mix 2, Mix 3, Mix 4) from 21-100% for easy switching during the dive.
Altitude Smart Mode
The altitude smart mode allows the computer to automatically adjust for altitude diving.
TUSA's computers feature audible and visual alarms for the most important dive data warnings. Ascent rate, maximum depth, no decompression limits, safety stop and several other key data can be set to alert the diver.
Several TUSA computer instruments feature a backlit display for night diving or low-light situations. The bright backlight is activated by a touch of a button and the duration can be set for up to 10 seconds in length enabling the diver to view critical dive data easily and quickly.
Free Dive Mode
The free dive mode calculates dive times and surface intervals for free diving.
Optional Deep Stop
An optional safety stop on No Deco dives exceeding a depth of 80 feet.
TUSA DC Solar Dive Computer - Features
?A dive computer with air integration allows the diver to view the current cylinder pressure on the dive computer display. Some models also display breathing rates. Air integration can be achieved through either a high pressure hose attachment or by using a wireless transmitter. Close.
?A collection of features developed for free-divers and snorkellers that records how deep you are, how deep you have been and how long you can hold your breath.
Some computers include a faster sampling rate, specialized alarms
and warnings and specific logbook for apnea. Close.
?The format denotes the style of the computer, whether it is a standard wrist sized unit with large easy to read display, a smaller watch sized unit which can be worn for every occasion but still packs in all the same features or a console mounted unit which are available with or without air hose integration. Close.
|Display Illumination Type|
?Dive computer displays typically have one of two illumination types. Phosphorescent displays glow when charged by light such as torchlight, it will continue to glow until its charge is depleted or it is recharged. Dive computers with a backlight facility use an internal light source to illuminate the display for a short period of time before turning off to save the battery. Close.
?The type of screen affects what and how information can be displayed on a dive computer screen.
The simplest is a segment display that builds up characters using pieces of a fixed screen like a digital wrist watch. This is cost effective but limits the use of complex details.
A partial dot matrix screen stills uses a section of segment display for numbers but also has a section of tightly group squares that allow for text or graphs to be shown on the screen.
A full dot matrix screen completely does away with the segment section of the screen to give full use of the display.
Colour LCD screens use the same technology found in TVs to provide a high resolution colour display that gives very clear, vibrant dive information. The technology is more expensive but raises the computer to a new level.
OLED screens use a display of tiny LEDs that are very efficient and super sharp. The screen doesn't require a power hungry backlight and can still be seen in very low visibility. Close.
?Gas switching allows divers to use more than one gas mix whilst diving. For example, it allows a diver to switch from main breathing gas to an enriched oxygen mix to decompress faster when ascending. Close.
?An integrated compass helps to reduce additional pieces of equipment that need to be carried. Some console computers are equipped with a standard magnetic compass. A number of computers now feature an electronic compass that is built into the unit itself and operated through the menu system. The electronic compass shows the magnetic North all over the planet by recalibrating the compass for your current localation. Close.
?A Nitrox or EAN (Enriched Air Nitrox) compatible dive computer allows divers to benefit from the advantages of diving with an enriched oxygen gas mix including extended dive time without incurring mandatory decompression stops during the ascent. Close.
|21 to 100|
|PC Interface Compatible|
?A PC Interface alllows divers to download previous dive information and profiles for viewing and analysis on a PC. Depending on the model of dive computer this can include depths, times, alerts, breathing rates, temperatures, etc. Close.
?A dedicated Closed-Circuit-Rebreather Mode that, depending on the computer, you can adjust and plan high and low setpoints, open circuit bailoutsand other features for diving with a rebreather. Close.
?A trimix compatible dive computer allows a suitably qualified diver to take advantage of the benefits of a Trimix gas consisting of oxygen, helium and nitrogen. Advantages include extended range diving and reduced narcosis effects. Close.
|User Changeable Battery|
?Modern dive computers allow divers to safely change the battery themselves with minimal risk of damage through flooding due to incorrect installation. The logbook and memory of previous dives are typically saved during the battery change. Watch sized dive computers typically still have to be returned to an authorised dealer to have their batteries change as special tools and usually needed to open the body. Close.
