Oceanic MaxDepth Swiv Navcon
The Oceanic MaxDepth Navcon console is still one of the most dependable instruments around for divers who are just starting out or don’t feel they need the advanced features of a Dive Computer just yet
The Oceanic MaxDepth Navcon triple console includes a depth gauge and compass on one side and a cylinder pressure gauge on the other for monitoring of the absolutely critical dive information if diving without a dive computer or in the case of an emergency. The Navcon console has a very compact and stylish housing that helps to protect the gauges from knocks and also allows the attachment of clips or retractors to one of the loops on either side of the body.
The depth gauge uses a non-linear colour codes scale that provides more accurate reading of the current depth during the typical safety stop range between a depth of 9m and the surface. The scale is coloured green between 0m and 18m then changes to orange to 30m to indicate the average recreational diving depths before turning red to a depth of 60m. The depth gauge has a built in maximum depth needle that will remain at the deepest depth until reset by turning back to zero.
The cylinder pressure gauge uses a more traditional linear scale but still uses a colour coding indicator to rapid visual awareness of the remaining cylinder pressure. 0 to 50 Bar are shown in red and represents the typical reserve pressure. 50 to 100 Bar is shown in orange and everything above 100 Bar is green. The pressure gauge is compatible with 300 Bar cylinders. The pressure gauge also features a small temperature gauge which will display the current temperature in Celsius.
Both gauges use the OceanGlo dials for superior light absorption and glow over a longer period of time
The compass is large and easy to read either from the top of from the side view pane. The floating card is also made using the OceanGlo material for high visibility in low light conditions. A large ratcheting bezel on the top of the compass allows for easy navigation.
