The Air Integrated (AI) version of Perdix from Shearwater Research of Canada is a full decompression dive computer with recreational divers in mind. The Perdix AI supports wireless gas pressure integration with tracking tank gas pressures (optional transmitters required.) Out of the box, the Shearwater Perdix includes open-circuit and closed-circuit Air, Nitrox and Trimix mixed gas functionality along with several enhanced navigation features for the three-axis tilt-compensated digital compass. The standard firmware supports English language menus and both imperial/metric units of measure.

The Shearwater Perdix AI model with the AI designation has the radio frequency receiver built-in to the electronics. The Perdix AI base price does not include a tank pressure transmitter because the consumer may already own a compatible transmitter.

The Shearwater Perdix AI is capable of wirelessly connecting to either one or two optional transmitters giving the diver ability to monitor up to two tank pressures and allowing for sidemount diving. It's also capable of calculating the Gas Time Remaining (GTR) on one assigned tank. Air integration is optional for all modes, from OC Rec to CC/BO. The tank pressure(s), in PSI or BAR, and GTR can be displayed to the customisable slots on the main display screen or accessed through the underlying information screens. Enabling the AI feature causes an approximately 10% decrease in Perdix battery life.

 

The Shearwater Perdix AI has been designed to accept any type of AA size battery including alkaline, lithium and rechargeable.

Recreational Open-Circuit Features

Key features of the Recreational Open-Circuit mode (aka Recreational Nitrox mode) include a simpler menu structure, less cluttered display with a larger font and configurable bottom row, optional safety stops, and a no-decompression limit dive planner. The simplified settings allow for three breathing gas mixtures (Air or Nitrox) and place a greater emphasis on the maximum operating depth (MOD) and no decompression time limit (NDL). The display prominently warns the diver if their depth is near, at or exceeds the MOD of the selected breathing gas. The diver also simply selects one of three levels of NDL conservatism and during the dive, a bar graph turns from green to red as the diver approaches the NDL. An optional 3-minute countdown safety stop starts when the diver reaches shallower than { 20 feet | 6 meters } on the ascent. If the diver exceeds the NDL and requires stops, the display turns red and warns "DECO STOP" with the mandatory depth and stop times.
