The production beta units should be ready next week. The boards are going to the production house over the weekend for programming. We will also be getting ten beta units for final testing.
We are increasing logbook capacity by adding another chip for more memory storage. We should double if not triple the 6.2 hours in the design. The 6.2 hours was worst-case scenario based on diver settings, profile sampling rate, flags, OC/CC mode and gas switches. If you’re traveling and can’t download until you get home, set the sampling rate at 30-second rate for more storage capacity.
We are using an industry-standard transducer rated to 150m. If you take it deeper than that it will not lock out, but there is no guarantee as to the accuracy or the integrity of the pressure transducer.
