    Re: Monitoring HP O2 or dill with perdix

    Been running it for a few months now (wireless) While I agree it is totally a gadget not a really necessary thing, it has some advantages:

    1. You can take off these front mounted gauges.
    2. Two less hoses that can leak.
    3. Roll off detection. This actually happened to me once.
    4. During real BOOM experience, these could truly save you a few precious seconds to locate the leak.

    On the other hand yes it's more batteries to monitor and maintain. Also, the most annoying thing about them if you are using them on a CCR (transmitters bit further), you will most likely temporarily loose signal while scootering.

    Did you locate an O2 clean transmitter or did you just use two from shearwater?

    I very well may be wrong, but I'm looking for reference that stated they were not O2 clean. I'd be happy to be wrong...!

    Yet another reason I like Shearwater: quick replies even on Saturday!

    Re: Monitoring HP O2 or dill with perdix

    Hi,

    when used for onboard tanks the transmitter is worst case around ~1.5 m away from the Perdix AI.
    Are there any connection issues reported?

    Regards,
    Scotty

    Since my last post back in January, I am now running two shearwater transmitters to monitor O2 and Dil pressures via my Nerd 2. When I first hooked the transmitters to short 6” hoses (they wouldn’t screw directly into the rEvo regs) I did seem to have some problems with loss of connection. Not sure if it was the distance, the amount of metal that the signal would need to pass thru or a combination of the two. I ended up using slightly longer hoses and routing them up to where my weight tray sits at the top of my unit. I got some time in Florida to dive it that way. I never lost a signal and I love it.

    Thank you, so I would not get rid completely of HP hoses ...

    I'm comfortable enough with Shearwater, that I bought another transmitter for the dil.

    I'm planning to do this as well. Did you use 24" HP hoses from Miflex? I measured and it looks like 18" would be perfect, but they don't make them that size.

    Thanks,
