Trimix Upgrade


The NiTek Q can be upgraded at any time to a seven gas Trimix model allowing the diver to program the computer for a percentage of helium as well as oxygen. The SURFACE mode, DIVE mode, PLAN mode, and LOG mode screens reflect the additional gas option in your mix choices. The diver will need to become familiar with and learn how to manage the addition of helium to your breathing gas throughout these menus. All other menus and screens are the same as the base model NiTek Q.
