Nitrox Recreational Mode

Shearwater Recreational Nitrox Mode

New Nitrox Recreational Mode

 

Available free of charge, as a firmware update, on all Shearwater Petrels! This new Nitrox mode is clearer and easier to use than ever before. Perfect for Air and Nitrox diving, the new mode offers optional safety stops, obvious warnings and plenty of customization. When you are ready, the Petrel still has its industry leading Trimix and Rebreather modes to take your diving to the next level.

Big, Clear Displays

While the Petrel has always done Air and Nitrox diving, this new mode has been designed specifically for recreational diving with big clear text and an uncluttered display.

Optional Safety Stops

The optional safety stops can be configured from 3 to 5 minutes, turned off, or set to adapt based on dive conditions.

Decompression when you need it

The Petrel is still a decompression computer, using the Bühlmann ZHL-16C algorithm with Gradient Factors. With no lock out, and clear warnings it handles all types of open circuit Nitrox diving.

Configurable Bottom Row

Customize the main screen with the information most important to you.

No-Decompression Limit (NDL) Planner

Plan your NDL time with a few quick buttons presses. Allows planning for surface intervals as well.

Simple Menu System

A simple two-button interface is easy to use, with button labels always describing the function of each button.

      First of all, make sure you have installed the most current version of firmware. The recreational nitrox mode only became available in V18. OC Rec mode can be found by going to System Setup, Mode Setup, scroll through the available modes and choose OC Rec.
