    Automatic rebreather controls

    In an automatic rebreather, how physically big are the necessary parts which detect depth and ppO2, and change the gas flows accordingly, and so on, and the battery to power all this?

    Roughly a pack of playing cards for controller and battery plus 3 (or more) sensors the dimensions of of 1/3 size shot glass. Plus a thumb sized solenoids.

    Anyone else can improve this reply but it's roughly close perhaps.

    Are you working on another graphic designed rebreather?

    I enjoy your updates.

    I am thinking of adding an auto-controller to my rebreather-from-stabjacket CGI model, and I want it to be a realistic size and design, not fantasy stuff.

    My backpack-box rebreather CGI models may be assumed to have an auto-controller, but they have everything inside the backpack box and I see no need to model the internal details.

    Sorry: please: I am teetotal: how big in inches or cm is a 1/3 size shot glass? Wikipedia does not help here.
