    Default Solid State Oxygen Sensors

    Hello -
    Reading up on Solid State oxygen sensors:
    http://www.poseidon.com/products/com...d-state-sensor

    Here is a video where they discussed this in Dema 2016:

    Indicates you can add to any rebreather loop on the market.
    Their site indicates you can purchase the sensor for 15,995 SEK which converts to $1,889 USD, and then you have to buy their computer, as the signal is encrypted - 16,995 SEK - $2,007 USD ( In a few years, hopefully the price tag will drop down. )

    Wondering if anyone has taken the plunge & purchased and set this up on their unit ? How did it work out ?

    Or any comments on this new technology ?

    The signal is not encrypted, it's supposed to diveCAN compatible. It was explained to me that Poseidon was planning to publish its protocol, but even if they don't help us out it would be fairly easy to figure out with some basic tools. CAN https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controller_area_networkis the same thing that cars use as a bus and diveCAN is the dive industries standard for inter communication. I'd be surprised if Shearwater doesn't have a computer that makes use of the SS sensor soon.

    I've not dove the sensor, but I have dove the new poseidon computer and it's pretty slick. The computer has all the features you'd want on it and is easy to figure out how to use without a manual. It's a battery hog though, I wouldn't plan to use it unless you can charge it every night.

    I'm looking forward to getting to see one of the SS sensors soon though, it should be the last sensor you have to buy!

    They don't last for ever. I don't think we know how long they last, but compared to fuel cells it will certainly seem like forever.

    @jlillest diveCAN is Shearwater specific not a dive industry standard as an fyi.

    Agree that the price needs to drop before people start buying these, but lot of pros for this technology. Agree it would seem likely that Shearwater would get something released that will work w/ these sensors.

    Hoping that Shear-water has some news in the pipe line.
