Can 2 computers monitor the transmitter at the same time? Like say a data mask is watching it and a buddy with an atom 2 is also watching yours and his transmitter at the same time?
Joe S Oceanic in the past had what was called a buddy pressure check. The Atom 2 was one of these computers. It will not show two air pressures at the same time, but if you press in the proper button it will display your buddies pressure for a few seconds and revert back to your own.
This feature is no longer available on newer Oceanic computers, but they will let you switch to a different tank and remain there until you manually switch it back. The BUddy Pressure Check has been removed though.
DAVID S The transmitter's job is just to transmit. What it comes down to is whether your computer supports reading multiple signals or not (Buddy Check I believe for the Atom). Then there is the issue of being in range.
WESLEY C Yes two can monitor just set one of the computers to "buddy" on the transmitter screen
GERALD N Yes but you need the buddy check feature in your computer.
GERALD N You need the buddy check feature which is part of the computer on the sending unit.
JOSE N Truly don't know. I guess if they are transmitting & receiving at same frequency, it may work.
I think this is a question for Oceanic techs.
Sorry i could not be of more help.
VINCE K With my Aeris computers I am able to do that. I have an Aeris T3 and an Elite. I bought these two computers so I could monitor my sons air. There is a buddy setting on the computers to allow that use.
Best I can say is to check your user manual to see if you have these functions.
CARL W Yes this should be no problem within the limitation of transmission distance of the recievers. If you have a datamask and you have and Atom on the same diver then it will work no problem. If the Atom is on a different diver it will work while that diver is in range of the transmitter on the first stage. I hope this helps.
JONATHON K Yes. That is exactly the point. This allows for greater situational awareness in dives where both divers know, at all times, how much air each other has.
