The Sherwood Insight Inline Console features exceptionally intuitive computer display modes of air/nitrox or gauge with three screens in dive mode and provides display in imperial or metric measurements. Computer has a dive log sample rate and a pre-dive planning, depth, time of day (dive & surface), and 24-hour or 12-hour time modes. All these modes are user selected. The Insight's intuitive display popularized by Wisdom model has a 1.75" (44.45mm) diameter display and when in surface mode will display date, time of day, surface interval, modes of air/nitrox or gauge and a bar graph indicating nitrogen status.
When the computer is in the log mode its data screen 1 displays water temperature of last dive, mode for air/nitrox or gauge, previous surface interval time, deepest depth and dive time of last dive made. This screen also will display a bar graph of nitrogen load end of dive and maximum ascent rate of that dive. The Nitrox mode will display 21% to 50% FO2, nitrox indicator icon, 50% FO2 default (user selected) O2 saturation display (dive & surface) and FO2 display (dive & surface). The Insight also features an automatic altitude adjustment up to 14,000' (4,367 meters).
Other features of the Insight Dive Computer are deep stop reminder conforms to latest theories recommending deep stops for dives that exceed 80' (24.4 meters), digital and bar graph indicators for nitrogen or oxygen limits and audible and visual alarms diver selectable. The computer screen provides a large 270Â° nitrogen absorption graph and decompression stops up to 60' (18.3 meters). The computer uses a modified Haldanean based Pelagic DSAT algorithm. Computer provides a depth display from 0' to 399' (0 to 120 meters) in gauge mode and 0' to 330' (100 meters) in normal mode. The computer can display imperial or metric measurements and is powered by a 3-volt CR2450 Lithium user replaceable battery. Computer is equipped with backlighting for night and low light conditions. The Insight has a 50-dive log book, so if you're on an extended dive vacation you can log your dives back at home. Computer is compatible with both PC and Mac computers for downloading dive log via the USB cable.
The pressure gauge has pressure readout from 0 to 5,000 psi and features a temperature gauge. The pressure gauge has high visibility graphics with bright red from 0 to 500 psi of reserve air, yellow indicators above 500 to 1,000 psi for extended reserve air for deeper dives and blue above 1,000 to 5,000 psi. Pressure gauge face is luminescent for night or low light situations. The temperature gauge has a bright red needle for easy reading. Pressure gauge comes with a 32" (81.3 cm) high pressure 7/16" threaded hose. The pressure gauges is small 1 75" (4.4 cm) diameter and protected by an impact resistant rubber boot that has eyelets for attachment of a lanyard or clip keeping the diver streamline and reef and environment conscious.
Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The Compass is mounted above the computer, for side-reading gun-sight accurate navigation. The compass is liquid filled for a quick and responsive movement. A ratchet bezel with compass headings in 30Â° numbered increments and indicator marks for every 10Â°. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course and a lubber line across the compass face. A side window with compass degrees allows gun-sight accurate use when precise headings are required. Compass card is luminescent for low light conditions. The console comes with a computer owner's manual.
