    Yep, another "must have" added to my shopping list.

    So John, can you clear up something about this product? In addition to being sold "bare", DiveSoft offer this analyzer in a package with ... exactly what? Descriptions of the package I've seen in various places seem to vary, and its very confusing.

    Thanks.

    So does this mean you'll be heavily discounting your stock of the old style analyzers?

    hello art, i think some people have put there own package together, there is also some changes to the case that has been used.
    we haven't stocked the full kits as very few people have wanted it, and with the long lead times on getting items from dive soft we haven't got them listed on the website.
    personaly when i buy an analyser thats just what i want, an analyser.
    having the extras like volt meter attachment and the like, is better served buy buying a cheap multi meter, i would hate to be playing with a fancy analyser when using it as a voltmeter, only to have bust it when i could have just had a cheap volt meter for £10,
    this is only my feeling on it.
    the deluxe kit contains
    analyser, professional flow limiter, connection hose, ohmmeter, voltmeter, cables, power adaptor and spare set of O-rings, watertight case

    we already have cases that fit the analysers so no need for us to buy them from divesoft

    old stock does not exist, there is long lead times on getting the stock we have, and that will not hang around very long.

    As far as extras go, the only thing that I regard as a 'must' is the flow restrictor.

    The Divesoft works with a much lower flow than any other analyser I've used and it's almost impossible to regulate it with the cylinder valve. The little plastic thing that comes with the Divesoft is next to useless.

    For storage, I bought a Storm Case iM2050 from Jit-Pak, but that's only to keep the device pristine as it seems to have been hewn from a solid billet of aluminium and I reckon one could knock nails in with it.

    Thanks, John and Nick.

    Yes, among the "kit" components, its the Professional Flow Restrictor that I'm most interested in. Some advertisements for the kit do not show or mention it, and I've not seen for it sale separately (though I have not looked recently)

    Then there's the connecting hose ... I've never seen a proper description of the fittings on the analyzer and the flow restrictor to know if I can use a piece of 1/4-inch vinyl aquarium hose, for example. Not a huge deal, if the hose is offered for sale separately, but again, I've not seen it, not even in combination with the Professional Flow Restrictor.

    I do have a pretty nice setup for oxygen analysis, using a medical oxygen regulator modified with a DIN fitting. It has a pressure gauge and a flow gauge. I can dial it down to about 1/2 L/min or all the way up to 12 L/min (I usually run my O2 analysis at 2 L/min). Is the low end low enough for the DiveSoft analyzer?

    Re: New OLED o2-helium analyser

    hello art, the connection hose is sold with the din restrictor,
    and we can order them in as separates, but we only have the correct amount to go with the restrictors at the moment but if needed i will split them.
    the analysers have not come with a standard basic restrictor this time, but them they are useless, so personally i would go for the din restrictor as standard.
    the fitting on the analyser is just a hole, and the hose has a small tube fitted with an o-ring that simply pushes into the hole.
    today has been a bit overwhelming with the response to the new analysers and we have sold most of the stock we have.
    so if any one wants one don't leave it to long, we had to wait a very long time to get these.

    Most analysers require a flow rate of 2l/min. The documentation with the Divesoft suggests 0.2l/min. It will work with a higher flow, but the helium percentage will not be displayed until the flow either reduces or stops completely.
