Air Integrated Computers - Mares
- Air Integrated
Computerized monitoring of tank pressure is used to determine a bottom time which depends not only on your depth, but also on your actual gas consumption, increasing your safety. In addition, the gas consumption (referred to the surface) is displayed on the computer for more control over your dive.
- Easy Access
The Easy Access push buttons allow divers to operate the computer in all conditions, even when wearing thick gloves. Navigating through the computer programs is extremely simple and very intuitive, whether the computer is equipped with one, two, three or four push buttons.
- Gas Switching
This function allows divers to use up to three different gas mixtures during a single dive. The computer calculates the decompression schedule accordingly, so that you can take full advantage of decompressing with high oxygen concentration mixes.
- LCD Color Display
The screen is made using LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) with TFT (Thin Film Transistor) technology. Mares is the first and only manufacturer to apply state-of-the-art smartphone technology to dive computers. One of the most beneficial aspects of TFT technology is a fast re-drawing of the display.
- Mineral Glass Display
- Precautionary Program Settings
All Mares computers can be set to a more conservative decompression algorithm. For instance if you plan to dive in very cold waters, you may want to follow a more conservative profile to account for the additional physiological stress on your body.
The Mares-Wienke “Reduced Gradient Bubbles Model” algorithm is the most advanced algorithm to date for preventing the formation of micro bubbles. Obtained from a study done by Dr. Bruce Wienke in the Los Alamos labs on over 10,000 real dives, the RGBM algorithm incorporates a Deep Stop function to further increases safety without compromising dive time.
- Software Upgradeability
Smart, intuitive and easy to use, the dive computer software is upgradeable. As Mares continues to introduce new features and functions to its computers, you can benefit from these improvements without needing to buy a new product: simply download the new software release from the Mares website and install it into your existing computer using the dedicated interface. Another first by Mares.
- Special Function Mode
Mares computers provide specialized program functions dedicated to the individual needs of divers. (A) Air - (N) Nitrox - (F) Freedive - (B) Bottom-timer.
- Superior Display Readability
In order to offer easy-to-read instruments in every circumstance, Mares features wide computer displays with oversized digits, intense backlighting and high contrast displays. Special attention is paid to maximize the viewing angle, to eliminate angular distortion and to always grant the best readability.
