While this is not a substitute for reading and understanding your Owners Guide, it provides detailed dive planning, is an excellent auxiliary learning tool, and it is a great way to refresh your memory on the way to the dive site, particularly if you have not been diving for a while. A side benefit is that you can always show your dive buddy what a cool new dive computer you have!
Oceanic Veo 250 Swiv Navcon Dive Computer Console USER SETTINGS AND OPTIONS:
Air or NitroxThe Veo 250 acts simply as an ‘Air’ computer until you tell it otherwise, whether that is this weekend or 2 years down the road. As your training and experience grow, the Veo 250 is designed to grow with you, being easily programmed for Nitrox mixtures from 21% to 50%.
Maximum Depth AlarmThe Maximum Depth Alarm provides an audible warning upon reaching your planned maximum depth. This is an important safety feature for deeper dives or less experienced divers, and it comes in handy for rebreather diving where you can pre-set another level of safety.
Elapsed Dive Time AlarmYou’re on a boat trip and the captain says, “Dive your own profiles, but be back in an hour – we’re having lunch!” Just set your Veo 250 to alert you when your elapsed dive time reaches one hour.
Units of MeasurementChoose between Metric and Imperial settings for depth and pressure.
12/24 Hour Time FormatChoose between 12 or 24 hour time format, independent of Units of Measurement.
Date and Time of DayThe Veo 250 displays time of day on the surface as well as underwater for quick reference. Time and date stamp helps you to easily identify specific dives in On-Unit Log Mode or PC download memory.
Audible Alarm and Flashing LED Warning Light On/OffYou may choose to deactivate all audible and LED alarms.
Nitrogen Tissue Loading Bar Graph AlarmMany divers have claimed in the past that Oceanic’s Nitrogen bar graph design provides the ultimate user-adjustable computer. Want to be a bit more cautious? Make it a personal rule to never enter into the yellow caution zone, or stay one pixel away, or – you get the point. Now you can program the Veo 200 to do it for you. Set it once and let your computer alert you when your bar graph reaches a pre-determined level.
Dive Time RemainingDive Time Remaining provides a ‘real’ number in minutes. This calculation considers both Nitrogen and Oxygen absorption, displaying whichever allows less time. With this unique Veo 250 feature, you are able to program an audible alarm to alert you upon reaching a pre-set number in minutes.
Maximum PO2 Level (Nitrox)When diving Nitrox, do you prefer your maximum PO2 exposure to be 1.2 ATA? 1.6 ATA? Depending on where you learned and your own personal comfort zone, the answer may be very different from diver to diver. The Veo 250 lets you set your own limit. Program an audible alarm to sound at the level that you prefer.
FO2 50% Default On/OffFollowing a Nitrox dive, many dive computers calculate your next dive based on a “worse-case scenario”, mix of 50% Oxygen and 79% Nitrogen should you forget to reset your actual mix. With FO2 50% Default OFF, your mix remains at the original set point until you change it again.
SmartGlo® Backlight DurationWould you like the backlight to shut off as soon as you release the button? Would you rather it remain on for 0, 3, or 7 seconds? We don’t need to make these decisions for you; it’s your choice.
PC Interface Sampling RateYou have the option to choose at which rate (timed or depth transition) the Veo 250 samples and stores data for later download to your PC. More frequent sampling will provide extreme detail of your dive profiles with limited storage capacity. Less frequent sampling, while it provides less detail, can store up to 150 dives!
Extended Range Digital Gauge Mode On/OffActivate Digital Gauge Mode for freediving or dives conducted beyond the limits of the computer.
Water Activation On/OffDo you tend to keep your equipment in a wet dive bag longer than you should? Are you an Instructor or Divemaster in an environment where your gear is never dry? Would you like to disable the water activation feature? Now you can.
Oceanic Personal Dive Computer AlgorithmDecompression theory can be trusted only as far as it has been demonstrated by actual test dive data. In 1987 a unique series of experiments were conducted by Diving Science and Technology (DSAT). Commissioned by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), these Doppler ultrasound monitored human experiments conducted by Dr. Michael Powell produced the most comprehensive data set that exists for recreational divers to this day. These data were used to validate the PADI Recreational Dive Planner and are the basis of the algorithm used in all Oceanic Personal Dive Computers (PDCs).
Patent Pending Nitrogen Tissue Loading Bar Graph Adjustment allows you to select the personal degree of conservatism you wish to build into each dive. An audible alarm alerts you when the bar graph has reached your maximum desired set point.
