The Ratio iX3M GPS Tech+ Dive Computer is dedicated to multi-gas diving Air, Nitrox or Trimix. The integrated algorithm of the multi-gas dive computer Ratio IX3M [GPS] Tech+ is a combination of Buhlmann ZHL16-B and VPM-B (Varying Permeability Model). This version of the IX3M is also configurable on the deep stop increments. It will tell you the same "decompression table" of your ascent, indicating the necessary mixture, depth and time. The log book is comprehensive, indicating the saturation profile, active mixing, back to surface speed, gradients, critical microbubble size, temperature, average and maximum depth, planning the next dive etc ... It is also compatible with the optional Ratio wireless LED-colour pressure gauge if desired (not included but available separately).
Compatible with the new Colour-Coded Wireless Transmitter
A state of the art Wireless Air Transmitter that flashes green, yellow or red according to your tank's pressure during the whole dive. You see your tank pressure from your iX3M, your buddy or your instructor from your CC Transmitter. Rechargeable with the same USB cable of the iX3M.
Monitor up to 10 transmitters at the time (Up to 2 for iX3M Easy, up to 3 for iX3M Deep, up to 10 for iX3M Tech+ and iX3M Reb)
Side Mount Mode
Use multi transmitters with the Side Mount. All the Side Mount tank transmitters on the same screen.
Seamlessly switch between one Side Mount tank and the other one. You just need to start breathing from the tank, the iX3M will automatically change the transmitter shown on the RBT / BAR(PSI) screen.
Side Mount Special RBT
The iX3M calculates the RBT (Remaining bottom time) considering all the Side Mount tanks that have the same gas.
The Biggest, most Colourful Display Ever
Amazing High contrast. QVGA 2.8 inc. 144 dpi resolution, Colour display. With big and extremely readable characters.
Delivers an astonishing Wide-Angle view. Over 150° angle view for unrivalled clarity in every position of your wrist.
Integrated Global Navigation Satellite System
Just set a point, the iX3M will bring you there. A state of the art GNSS that can use all type of satellites systems (GPS; GLONASS; QZSS; SBAS; BEIDOU) provided by all the major nations (USA, Russia, Japan, and China) for a perfect worldwide signal. Set the coordinates of a point and go there. Mark your current coordinates and back there (e.g. a dive-point or the boat). Track your position, speed and direction (e.g. to give them to a rescue team). (Note: The satellite signal is not received underwater.)
A True Double Core Algorithm: Buhlmann ZHL16B + VPM-B
The iX3M features both the Buhlmann ZHL16-B and the VPM-B Algorithm. Both pre-installed, in complete versions and running in Real Time. You have just to choose from the iX3M menu which Algorithm to use for your dive.
User Settable Gradient Factors and Critical Bubble Radius
Make the Algorithm yours. With the iX3M you can adjust the Gradient Factors (for Buhlmann ZHL 16-B) and the Critical Bubble Radius (for VPM-B). Set the iX3M's Algorithm according to your physical conditions and to the type of dive you are going to perform. Directly from the menu of the iX3M computer. This is a true Technical Dive Computer.
Full Deco Table
Everything is going as planned. All the information about your deco, always at your fingertips during your tech dive. Not only the global TTS, but all the deco stops, times and mixes to be used. Updated in RealTime, throughout the whole dive.
Real Time Algorithms
Maximum of flexibility, reliability and performance. The iX3M series integrates the real and complete Algorithm to calculate your current tissue saturation and afterwards decompression profile in real time. This allows to obtain reliable and very safe decompression profiles. The iX3M Real Time algorithms are so flexible that you can also change their conservatism during the dive. Most dive computers' algorithms make interpolation of stored data to calculate decompression profiles. This is a cheap way to do it, but not the most accurate. The iX3M is neither more nor less conservative in comparison with the other computers. It is just 'right'.
Repetitive Dives Management
More dives a day in more days: no problem at all. Featuring the Real time Algorithms the iX3M calculates your real tissue saturation status and calculates your repetitive dive profile according to your previous dives. This means that your profile is always optimized, even after more days of repetitive dives.
Deep Stop, Deco Stop and Safety Stop
Fully customisable, All of them! Safety Stop in your agency's style. Set the Depth and the time of the Safety stop. Your certification agency will be happy. Deep Stops in all styles Image Deco setting iX3M. Deep Stops OFF, with Standard method or with Pyle Method. It's up to you. Deco Stops in your style. Set the Deco Steps for every range of Depth you want. The iX3M will do the math for you.
Gauge AVG - Resettable Average Depth and Timer
One Button to reset the Average Depth, One Button to reset the Timer, One Button for the Compass.
It Can Tell You Everything
In the easiest way, using just one button during the dive. Full Deco Table updated in RealTime, throughout the whole dive. Tissue Saturation - Your current tissue saturation. During the decompression you can see which tissues you have to desaturate to continue the ascent. HD Dive Profile - The graphic of the current dive diagram, in the magnificent 2.8inc. 144 dpi resolution screen. Updated in Real Time during the dive. Of course the iX3M has also any other information you may desire. Active Mix, Partial pressure of Oxygen, ascension speed; Gradient Factors (or critical bubble radius), OTU, CNS; Temperature, Average Depth and Maximum Depth.
The iX3M Never Leaves You Alone
Manual management of the set Mixes - The iX3M lets you easily perform a Gas Break or manually manage the mix changes, e.g. anticipating the scheduled Mix change at a different depth. You have the complete control of your technical dive. You can change the conservatism, even during the dive. What if something wrong with your dive and you have not enough gas to respect the 'Time To Surface' indication? The iX3M allows you to change the conservatism even during the dive to reduce the TTS and brings you to the surface in the safest way. The iX3M Easy and the iX3M Deep lets you change the conservatism level (PS), the iX3M Tech+ and the iX3M Reb the Gradient Factors or the RØ. Disableable Deco Control Lockout - If you use the computer as a backup for your table-scheduled dive or for extreme cave diving, probably you will not (or can not) follow step-by-step the deco indications of the iX3M, causing the lockout of the computer. The iX3M allows you to disable the lockout to continue a coherent calculation of your deco and tissue saturations anyway.
A Complete Planner Inside
A Real Simulation your next dive. Simulate your next dive according to the current settings of the iX3M like mixes, conservatism, etc. and your previous dives. You have just to set the bottom time and the depth. More a Simulator than a Planner.
It Thinks Like a Rebreather
3 Diluents + Automatic or Manual SET POINT. Let the iX3M switch automatically the Set Points or change them manually. Set up to 3 different diluents and set the Algorithm's Gradient Factors (or Critical Bubble Radius for VPM). The iX3M can work perfectly with any kind of Rebreather.
Your iX3M, your favourite colours. Choose the colour of the data, of the titles, of the menus, of the alarms.
On surface and during the dive. 4 Physical Buttons - It's easier to get what you want. A User-Friendly menu and four mechanical buttons to navigate it. HOME Button - Never get lost in a menu during the dive. The iX3M's menu is easy to navigate but just in case you get lost, press the Home button to go back to the dive screen. Intuitiveness at its best.
The iX3M has alarms only you can feel. In addition to the traditional visual and acoustic alarms the iX3M feature a very powerful vibration alarm. So powerful you can feel it even with a dry-suit.
Redundant Stretch-Belts or Redundant Bungees
You have just to choose. The iX3M comes with two redundant and extremely resistant Stretch-Belts with fast release system,
and it is ready to be equipped with the redundant bungees.
Extended Life USB Rechargeable Battery
