A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH
Extended dive time, lightweight, as easy as nitrox diving, creates a natural diving position, fail-safe gas operation, an intuitive interface and more...
EXTENDED DIVE TIME
Dive times are an average of 3-8 times longer, Standard nitrox gas cylinders that are available at the dive destination can be used, Additional cylinder rigging optional
THE LIGHTWEIGHT SYSTEM IS THE IDEAL TRAVEL COMPANION AND DOES NOT REQUIRE DEDICATED CYLINDERS OR WEIGHTS. THE UNIT'S SIMPLE LOGISTICS ALLOW THE DIVER TO USE STANDARD NITROX CYLINDERS THAT ARE EASILY OBTAINED FROM MOST DIVE DESTINATIONS.
Complete unit weighs only 12kg for easy transportation Comes with 1 bottom gas regulator set weighing 1.4kg Optional decompression gas regulator weighing 1.4kg is also available Combined, the Horizon unit and regulators should fit in a single suitcase, weighing less than 23kg in total -nthe standard checked baggage allowance for most airlines
BUILD ON A FOUNDATION OF OPEN-CIRCUIT NITROX DIVING KNOWLEDGE
THE HORIZON SCR TRAINING BUILDS ON A FOUNDATION OF OPEN-CIRCUIT AND NITROX DIVING KNOWLEDGE, AND THE HORIZON SCR CONTROLLER INTUITIVELY MAINTAINS AN IDEAL NITROX MIX, DEPENDING ON DIVER PREFERENCES. FEWER BUBBLES ALLOW WILDLIFE ENTHUSIASTS TO EXPERIENCE CL
AS EASY AS NITROX DIVING
The gas mix can be changed during the dive (using the controller) to extend dive time or decrease decompression time, The controller will warn the diver if an inappropriate gas mix exists
THE HORIZON SCR PROVIDES WARM AND MOIST BREATHING GAS, AND AN ERGONOMIC DESIGN THAT INTUITIVELY IMPROVES THE DIVER’\'S TRIM POSITION AND COMFORT.
CREATES A NATURAL DIVING POSITION
The shape of the Horizon unit provides the ideal, horizontal trim, The combination of warm air and improved dive position makes breathing natural and effortless, The specially contoured, ergonomic unit includes a soft back plate, lumbar support, buttplate and padded harness straps
THE HORIZON SCR WAS DESIGNED TO MAXIMIZE SAFETY AND ENSURE EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE USING MULTIPLE BACK-UP SAFETY SYSTEMS AND THREE SETS OF REDUDANT ELECTRONICS AND POWER SUPPLIES
FAIL-SAFE GAS OPERATION
During a total system failure, the unit supplies an opencircuit nitrox breathing gas mix, A sophisticated monitoring system informs the diver of how much time remains before they must replace the scrubber material, Regulator set(s) provide alternate gas sources that can be shared in an emergency situation
SIMPLE SET UP
ONE OF THE KEY ATTRACTIONS OF THE HORIZON SCR IS ITS INCREDIBLE EASE OF USE. IT IS SIMPLE TO SET UP, REQUIRES NO TOOLS, HAS EASY ACCESS TO THE SCRUBBER CANISTERS FOR FILLING, AND HAS NON-INTERCHANGEABLE, COLOR-CODED, QUICK RELEASE CORRUGATED BREATHING HOSE

A WEALTH OF POSSIBILITIES
FOR THE MORE ADVANCED DIVER, THE HORIZON OFFERS A RANGE OF ADVANTAGES. AS WELL AS A LONGER DIVE DURATION, THE DIVER HAS DUAL GAS POSSIBILITIES – WITH THE OPTION OF ATTACHING A SECOND CYLINDER WITH A HIGHER O2 CONCENTRATION FOR ACCELERATED DECOMPRESSION
READY FOR ADVANCED DIVERS
Uses the ZH-L16C Bühlmann algorithm with gradient factors, Programmable bottom gas and decompression gas, Within operational limits (up to 40m) the unit provides, decompression obligations like that of a closed-circuit rebreather
INTELLIGENT INTEGRATED CONTROLLER
AN INTEGRATED CONTROLLER COMPLETES THE HORIZON, WITH A 2.8", EASY-TO-READ COLOR DISPLAY AND OPTIONAL WIRELESS GAS INTEGRATION.
This intelligent computer is effortlessly operated via two large piezo elements, especially when wearing gloves, and includes a scrubber monitoring system to keep the diver informed of their scrubber status at all times, and an audible warning alarm.
