    CO2 Sensor bleeps on a 2020 head

    Hi, last year I installed a CO2 sensor into the head of my 2020 inspo. It works really well and certainly adds a nice reassurance factor on dives.

    But, I noticed after doing a pre-dive test on the unit it will sometimes bleep away after the CO2 sensor has been calibrated and other times will be completely silent! There seems to be no pattern to if it bleeps or not!

    I've contacted AP, but all they said (after asking for a set of logs) was the sensor was working ok....

    Any thought?


    Cheers

    Simon

    Did you get a warning with the beeps? Properly lubing the scrubber oring?

    This was during the pre-dive stage, not during the actual dive.

    Advice depends on your setup.

    Mono or 2020?
    Do you have the latest firmware?
    When did you change the cap?
    Which rev. of sensor do you have?

    Matt.

    Mine does same. Not strictly the CO2 sensor beeping, just at that point in the sequence it sometimes seems to decide to randomly "test" the audible alarm until the sequence is finished. Was a bit surprised the first time it did it, but have used it plenty times and it just seems to be a little quirk. Doesn't seem to affect the operation in any way, shape or form.

    Yep I'm back and forth too. Also still on borderline with changing the battery unit.

    I was too. Read enough positive things about it that I figured at best, it might save my life. At worst, it would be finicky and make me that much more careful in my preparations, if only because beeping annoys me.

    Either way, it benefits me.

    Thanks for the feedback - glad to hear it's not just mine doing it!! Would have preferred if AP had been able to give me a good answer, I suspect it's something in the software, which, chances are they didn't write...

    Having said that, I really like the CO2 sensor and value the piece of mind it gives me.
