Shearwater Perdix 2 Ti Dive Computer
The dive computer Perdix 2 Ti, is a powerful dive computer with advanced features, a dive computer for demanding recreational divers, technical divers or dive professionals, the most robust and reliable full-size computer from the young Canadian manufacturer Shearwater, who has already convinced the diving world with high-end dive computers such as the Shearwater Teric or the everyday dive computer Peregrine, and who is a technical diver himself and therefore knows exactly what a demanding diver needs underwater to dive safely and relaxed.
One of the most rugged dive computers on the market
Built to withstand the most demanding diving conditions, the Perdix 2 can withstand dives to a depth of 260m, thanks to its extremely rugged, screw-in construction with titanium bezel and buttons and toughened aluminosilicate glass protection.
Also suitable for rebreathers and sidemounts
The Perdix 2 offers six dive modes, including one gauge mode, three modes for recreational divers and two for advanced divers.
For recreational divers, there are two Basic OC Open Circuit modes for open circuits with air tank and regulator, including one compressed air mode, one Nitrox Single Gas mode for up to 40% oxygen and one 3-Gas mode for 3 different breathing gases with an oxygen content of up to 100%.
Advanced tech divers have the choice between an OC Tec mode, Open Circuit which also allows Trimix and does not include safety stops, and a CC Closed Circuit mode, for closed circuit with constant PO2, with up to 5 different gas mixtures and Trimix, with the option to switch to open circuit and emergency air, which qualifies the Perdix 2 as a dive computer for rebreathers.
In OC mode, the Perdix 2 can even be connected with up to 4 Shearwater transmitters simultaneously, which is ideal for sidemount diving. Suitable Shearwater Swift transmitters, can be found in our online dive shop.
Easy operation in every diving situation
But no matter whether you are a recreational diver, a technical diver or a professional diver, it was important to the manufacturer that his Shearwater dive computers are as easy to use as possible, individually configurable and clearly laid out. And this has been achieved perfectly with the Perdix 2 Ti, because the two large control buttons on the side are very easy to operate even with thick neoprene gloves, and the razor-sharp, very easy-to-read LCD display is extremely clear and can be structured according to your own needs.
Life-saving, configurable alarm functions
This intelligent dive computer can easily distinguish between a simple warning and an alarm for a life-threatening situation and inform the diver accordingly in different ways. In contrast to simple, non-safety-related information, which is only displayed briefly, safety-related warnings are displayed permanently, in warning colours, and must be confirmed by the diver himself, who must take action.
Life-threatening situations, such as excessive oxygen partial pressure, exceeding the maximum operating depth, are permanently displayed in red, require immediate action on the part of the diver and only disappear when the circumstances that led to this situation have been eliminated.
The alarm functions are audible and visual, marked in different colours and with flashing function, partly accompanied by a vibration alarm (only when operating with Lithium batteries) and most of them can be individually configured by the diver.
With integrated compass
An integrated, digital 3-axis compass with tilt compensation and clear application ensures problem-free navigation underwater.
More safety through innovative decompression algorithm
The basic decompression algorithm used by this computer is the Bühlmann ZHL-16C algorithm. However, this has been modified by the makers of the Shearwater dive computers, themselves passionate divers, by using gradient factors developed by Erik Baker. This new code provides divers who are beyond the limits of basic recreational diving with more safety and more accuracy when calculating deep stops.
Alternatively, two other algorithms can be purchased, the VPM-B or the DCIEM algorithm.
Practical, with easily replaceable batteries
So you won't be let down by your dive computer on hour-long dives, this Shearwater computer is equipped with simple AA batteries that are available everywhere, can be easily replaced before each dive and guarantee up to 40 hours of continuous use with air integration activated.
You no longer need a cable for this dive computer, with convenient Bluetooth wireless technology that allows you to connect your Perdix 2 to any smartphone, tablet or desktop to store and share your dives in the Shearwater Cloud, available in 13 languages, or to regularly update the free software.
