Shearwater Recalls Its Computer Transmitters

from the January, 2019 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Over the years, some of our readers have expanded their skills from sport diving to technical diving, and if you're a Shearwater computer user for the latter, this recall notice could be important. You see, Shearwater computers can be gas-integrated with multiple tanks, using several transmitters on their firststages. However, one of the transmitters is now subject to a voluntary recall.

Shearwater discovered that the yellow transmitters may have the same transmission interval as the one found on the gray transmitters. When the transmitters of both colors are used by the same diver on the same dive, signal interference could potentially occur and cause dropped signals. (Otherwise, the computers aren't affected.)

If you've got a Shearwater computer, stop using the yellow tank transmitter and contact the manufacturer online at
