Why Sidemount is My True DIR Diving Option

Doing something right has never been more important that being ready—and even eager—to change for the better. What was considered great a few years ago is not always great today. All we need is to find a better option, since what was right yesterday, may not be right anymore. Doing It Right (DIR) is about doing it better than it was done before. For me, that is the only right thing to do.

Poseidon M28 Computer Update

"Due to changes in certification standards and changes in approvals of key electronics components that in turn have led to delays in the CE certification process, the expected delivery time for the first batch of M28 Computers will now be in August.

We sincerely apologize for this delay, however it is out of our hands and we are doing everything we can to keep things moving forward swiftly."

Poseidon Announces "Game-changing" 'Solid State Oxygen Sensor'

In early 1968 John Kanwisher and Walter Stark met by chance. They soon learned that each man had been considering the feasibility of a mixed gas closed circuit rebreather (CCRB) using electronic sensors to control the Partial Pressure of Oxygen (ppO2). They collaborated and the result was the Electrolung.

The nascence of recreational rebreathers was just waiting to happen. Spurred on by rapid advances in technical diving, new materials and technology, coupled with cost reductions, the allure of long and quiet dives, with vastly improved non-deco times, had to seep from the technical communities to recreational diving, leading to the design of a new generation of closed circuit rebreathers aimed primarily at recreational divers.

Rebreather comfort

Most of the articles one can find about rebreathers deal with potential problems and limits of these wonderful pieces of kit. They give extensive information about oxygen sensors, scrubber duration, electronics and any of the risks associated with this kind of equipment. Becoming proficient with the emergency procedures is a very important component of training and experience.
