Whats in the box:Depth Gauge, Pressure Gauge, Compass, Boot and H.P. Hose
Mini-console 3 is a small compact console that houses the Cressi mini pressure gauge, new, small, analog depth gauge and on the back side a compass for navigation. Both the depth and pressure gauges are high quality instruments with a chrome plated brass case and the depth gauge has a diaphragm membrane function. The compass has a thermoplastic case. All gauges have a large circular easy to read scales.
On the luminescent face of the 230' depth gauge the first 40' depth readings are in 10' increments, (which correspond to the area of decompression stops), and are widely spaced for ease of reading. The face is divided into three different colored zones: green up to 66', light blue from 66' to 130', red from 130' to the end of the scale. The instrument has a maximum depth indicator that stops on the maximum depth reached during the dive.
The Mini-Manometer pressure gauge luminescent dial reads from 0-to 5000 psi. The instruments face like the depth gauge is divided into three different colored zones: the area from 600 psi and below is highlighted in red with a solid bar and red stripes. If gauge is used on deeper dives, the red scale extends and fades to 1,300 psi. This provides for added reserve air indication required at greater depths. From 600 to approximately 3,000 psi is green and from 3,000 psi to end of scale is blue.
The front glass lens is made to act as a pressure relief valve. In the event of a sudden increase in pressure inside the instrument, the glass rises slightly, allowing the excess pressure to escape. The instrument is housed in a small, modern shaped console boot, made from polycarbonate and desmopan, (a thermoplastic polyurethane) two materials that guarantee protection from shocks, scratches and which, at the same time, is very light.
The compass also has a luminous dial for easy reading in low light conditions. The compass face is divided into 10 degree sections, has a side scan window for gun sight accuracy, lubber line, rotating bezel with double references and compass rose.
The pressure and depth gauges are positioned in such a way that both instrument scan be read quickly and easily in any conditions. The compass is mounted on the backside of the console. At the end of the console, slightly to the sides, there are two loops for fastening the instrument to the BCD or harness so that it doesn't hang down with the risk of catching and damaging the environment.
