Dive Computer Recall

from the May, 2007 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Pelagic Pressure Systems is recalling about 2,800 Oceanic and Aeris digital dive computers due to a decompression hazard. The recall is for Oceanic-brand Atom 2.0 dive computers sold between August 2006 and February 2007, and Aeris-brand Epic dive computers sold between October 2006 and February 2007.

Two German divers found that when switching from one gas to another during a dive, their dive computer’s display locked up and did not return to the main dive screen showing dive times. That lack of info could cause divers to ascend prematurely and risk the bends.

Serial numbers for the specific dive computers to recall are posted on websites for Oceanic (www.oceanicworldwide.com) and Aeris (www.diveaeris.com). If you have one of these, take it to an authorized dealer for a free software upgrade. You can also contact Pelagic’s customer service department by calling (888) 854-4960, or e-mail service@oceanicusa.com.
