VRx 3 cell PPO2 monitoring

Hello, I have a question about VRx and 3 cell PPO2 monitoring.
I bought an used Aquatec Voyager Rebreather some time ago. It has a box with 3 O2 cells wired into the Fisher conector. The previous owner connected it to the Shearwater dive computer. I have VR Technology VRx (3 cell monitoring is activated). The problem is, VRx shows just 1 PPO2. I think that problem is in wiring 3 cells to Fisher conector. Does anyone know how are 3 cells in Fisher conector wired (by VRx, of course)?
Any advice welcome. Thank you
Asfalt

The VRx is not automatically a 3 cell computer. You may have a 1 cell computer. The board inside is different for each.
You must first make sure you have a 3 cell VRx.
If your sure that the computer is a 3 cell version then DO NOT use a Shearwater cable with the VRx. We were involved with the design specification on the cell interface for that computer and the cables are not compatible.
You must use a different cable.

Re: VRx 3 cell PPO2 monitoring

Asfalt,
Best is to get the correct VRx cable from narked@90. They know what they're talking about and they will give you great service. Last but not least you won't have to second guess your readings.
Best
Philippe

Re: VRx 3 cell PPO2 monitoring

Thank you for all answer. My VRx is realy 3 cells monitoring capable and this function is activated (see a pic).
My problem isn't just connect 3 cells to VRx - I wanna connect all 3 cells to the VRx computer and simultaneously to the VR Technology 3 cells monitoring unit. I wanna use 3 cells monitoring unit as a backup... You can see everything, what is available to me, at a second picture.
Thanks
Asfalt
