Sea Trek (diving system)
|This article relies too much on references to primary sources. (March 2009)|
In 1999 Sub Sea Systems, Inc., introduced Sea Trek, an underwater helmet diving system. Sub Sea Systems is certified by ship building societies such as Bureau Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping, and Korean Registry of Shipping.
Current Sea Trek operations vary in depth from 3 to 10 meters. The maximum depth is not a function of the systems ability to provide air supply (operating pressure of 80 p.s.i.), rather a function of what is a safe operating depth for nonswimmers in case of emergency.
The air delivery is controlled by a microprocessor digital control system (A/C & D/C), providing the following primary functions:
- Independent monitoring of input and output power to each compressor motor.
- Automatic compressor selection and control.
- Emergency tank activation.
- Primary air tank pressure monitoring.
- Downstream system pressure monitoring.
- Low-pressure and power failure alarm (visual and audible)
