All Petrel Models In-stock for Immediate Shipment
The Petrel Dive Computer from Shearwater Research of Canada incorporates a powerful feature set, easy to understand menus, easy to read full color display, Bluetooth wireless upload/download and a robust compact case. The Petrel has been designed to accept any type of AA size battery including alkaline, lithium and rechargeables. Out of the box, both Petrel models include open-circuit and closed-circuit Air, Nitrox and Trimix mixed gas functionality. The Petrel-EXT adds a Fischer 103 I/O port used for external PO2 monitoring of up to three oxygen sensors in a rebreather loop.
New features for V11 include a user configurable center row information display and support for external PO2 with optional 'giant' font, see the V11 Release Notes for details.
Both Petrels offer a screen display utilizing a new generation of low-power consumption, high resolution QVGA, full color LCD display. The display will automatically adjust intensity based on available light to make the display easily readable whether on the surface in sunlight, in open water or in a cave. The full color display is used to convey additional meaning with the information being displayed. When information is yellow or red, it calls the divers attention to an unusual value or problem. With the large color display, a buddy or instructor can glance at your Petrel to determine your status.
