ISC MegalodonThe Megalodon CCR Rebreather is a precision engineered machine sporting double heavy-duty o-ring seals on all connections, a heavy-duty aluminium stack where the electronics and a 2.5 kilo carbon dioxide (Co2) axial absorbent canister are housed. Fitted with an Automatic Diluent Valve ( ADV ) and a Head Up Display ( HUD ) enabling the diver to monitor the pO2 at all times.

The unit is available in two versions, either a computer controlled closed circuit (eCCR) or a manually controlled closed circuit rebreather (mCCR). In the electronically controlled APECS version an onboard computer maintains the oxygen partial pressure (Po2) in the breathing loop to the demand of the diver. In the manually controlled COPIS version the diver monitors loop Po2 on the display and manually injects oxygen as needed to maintain the desired setpoint.

ISC Pathfinger CCRThe Pathfinder CCR is a compact, lightweight but very robust, travel-friendly closed circuit rebreather using ISCan Electronics. IScan™ is a Controller Area Network system based upon proven ISO standards used in the automotive, aerospace and defence industries designed to allow independent devices to communicate and interact with each other. Handsets, HUDs and various sensors can operate independently and in concert to increase safety, redundancy and to reduce single points of failure.

The Pathfinder has a Shearwater Petrel pO2 controller customized for ISC with integrated deco-software and an independent colour-coded HUD. It has a radial scrubber as standard. The high-quality engineering but modest weight of this unit makes it attractive to all types of rebreather diver.

Hollis Explorer eSCRThe Hollis Explorer is a true recreational rebreather being neither a fully closed circuit rebreather nor a pure semi-closed system, but an intelligent hybrid that utilizes the best of both worlds. It's compact, lightweight and extremely easy to use.

The Explorer is unique in using a single gas supply; Nitrox, and is electronically controlled to achieve an optimal balance between loop ppO2 and dive time. The intelligent electronics supplied with the unit have a pre-dive diagnostic sequence which runs with just a few prompts to the diver. The unit automatically analyses the gas mixture, adjusts accordingly and performs a series of checks including loop volume & optional CO2 detection during pre-breathe. Once the Explorer displays "ready to dive" the diver is ready to safely enter the water.

rEvo III CCRThe rEvo III mCCR is a manually operated closed circuit rebreather based on the CMF (constant mass flow) principle. It is also available as a hCCR (hybrid), eCCR (electronic) and rMS (scrubber monitor) version.

The rEvo III is unique in using dual scrubbers and a cycle system. Two versions of the rEvo III are available: the Standard version is equipped with 3 litre cylinders and the smaller, mini version with 2 litre cylinders. However both versions can hold 3 and 2 litre cylinders. This is also true for the new micro-version. The unit is very low-profile and light to carry. This makes it a real joy to dive with.

Poseidon MKVIThe Poseidon MKVI is a fully-closed, electronically controlled rebreather aimed at satisfying the needs of recreational sport divers.

It uses very advanced electronics to perform multiple system tests to check the unit both before and during the dive. The user is freed up from many tasks that have to be performed manually with most CCR's allowing the diver to just enjoy the dive.

Multiple warning systems draw the diver's attention back to the unit if necessary and internal diagnostics indicate the nature

Poseidon Se7en

Developed from the Poseidon MkVI, the POSEIDON SE7EN is a fully-closed, electronically controlled rebreather equipped with Generation 7 electronics which open up endless possibilities for interaction, accessories and apps. Entirely new internal hardware driven by a new generation of firmware makes the SE7EN faster, more flexible and reliable in any diving environment. The unit has a data management system with Bluetooth connectivity allowing you to download your dive logs and update your settings in seconds.

The POSEIDON SE7EN can be whatever you want it to be!

KISS CLASSIC CCR

Keep it Simple is the philosophy applied to all products designed and built by KISS Rebreathers. The most reliable machines are those that are straightforward, easy to use, and easy to repair, regardless of what function they are meant to perform. When designing underwater life support equipment, KISS Rebreathers feel that it is especially important to follow this philosophy. With this mind, KISS rebreathers are designed to be durable, yet easy to assemble, dive and learn how to use.

Submatix SMSThe SUBMATIX CCR 100 SMS Rebreather (self-mixing system) is a mechanical self-mixing system that can be dived in the range of 0-40m. The system utilises a depth dependent constant flow dosage and offers the diver a Nitrox mix of 28-32% at all times. The rebreather has 2 x 2 litre gas cylinders (optional: 2 x 5 litres or an additional tank). The cylinder on the right contains 100% oxygen and the left hand cylinder contains diluent (nitrox or Trimix depending on the planned dive depth). The oxygen is “dosed” into the breathing loop via an adjustable flow nozzle (the setting corresponds to the individual consumption rate of the diver). Diluent gas is fed into the loop via an automatic demand valve (ADV). Oxygen can be manually injected into the system via the gas booster. The level of diluent gas can be manually influenced by using the ADV or by flushing the loop.

Submatix 100STCE certified In 2004, the SUBMATIX SCR 100 ST is a semi-closed circuit Nitrox rebreather designed and built for recreational diving only (with nitrox to a maximum depth of 40 metres). The unit is back-mounted and uses two separate cylinders , both filled with pre-mixed Nitrox. A range of interchangeable dosage nozzles allow you to select the correct constant flow for your actual Nitrox mix. An Oxyscan gauge allows you to monitor loop pO2.

The comprehensive IART training reflects the standards required by the manufacturer of the rebreather. IART is authorized by the manufacturer to conduct this training. The course manual was written in consultation with the manufacturer and you will receive the current edition from your IART Instructor.

HammerheadThere are two models of the Hammerhead CCR

Hammerhead Classic:
Compact design, pre Scrubber O2 Injection, quick bayonet mount, quick disconnect cylinder mounts, 3 Primary O2 sensor cells, primary, secondary, DIVA options and a 4th O2 sensor cell with additional eCCR monitor output as standard. Ultra reliable JMI ADV and Manual Add Valves, 3 Canister, 2 Scrubber and 5 lung options make this a very user adaptable unit. The JM Hammerhead CCR is one of the most advanced closed circuit mixed gas rebreather in the commercial rebreathing market. Innovative, functional and effective, it is a good choice for a technical diver’s eCCR.

Hammerhead Extreme:
If the Hammerhead Classic is ‘The Best’, the Hammerhead Extreme is better. With updated designs to improve functionality and operation, the JM Hammerhead Extreme CCR expands the rock solid design of the Classic.

Colkan EAGLE CCRThe EAGLE CCR155 UBA is an electronically controlled, closed circuit, constant partial pressure of Oxygen (ppO2) mixed gas rebreather (CCR). It is designed to recirculate 100% of a diver’s respiratory gas and remove Carbon Dioxide (CO2) to result in a bubble free operation mode, apart from ascents and inadvertent gas release. The unit maintains a preselected ppO2 independent of depth. Oxygen addition is monitored and maintained by reliable analog circuitry enhanced by the inclusion of modern oxygen sensing technology. A selection of diluent gases may be utilised, depending on the depth requirements of the planned dive. Typically a nitrogen based diluent would be used for depths to 45 msw and a helium or Trimix-based diluent for deeper. The unit utilises two special spherical cylinders.

The EAGLE CCR155 UBA has two displays. The primary display is a Light Emitting Diode (LED) qualitative display in which each light corresponds to a particular segment of a meter. The secondary display is an analog quantitative display

DOLPHIN SCRThe DOLPHIN SCR was designed to fit to the needs of the recreational rebreather diver by using fixed constant flow nozzles that can be easily exchanged depending on the gas mix chosen by the diver. A colour coding system makes it easy to avoid mistakes.

Despite this user-friendly approach, diving with the DOLPHIN SCR demands some new skills from the diver and presents potential new problems. The IART unit-specific user course, combined with the use of the course manual, will prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed to safely dive the Dolphin SCR within no-decompression limits to the maximum safe depth of the Nitrox premix used.
