Impression of the 2013 Boot Show in Dusseldorf 28 January 2013

Like earlier years I visited the Boot 2013 show in Dusseldorf. This huge event is the largest fair showing Boats (mainly) Fish catching gear and more important Scuba equipment. The fair showing the diving gear is a mixture of travel information, technical gear and sales. This year the fair was well visited and most companies showed a positive view to the future. This page is not indented to inform you about the products but just to give an impression what i have seen. Links to the manufacturers give more information about the products.

Submatix shows their new oxygen/nitrox rebreather and Bailout rebreather. The Oxygen/Nitrox  rebreather "Combo 2" is based on the combination of a regular closed circuit system combined with a EMCCR. This EMCCR is a electronic monitored system that uses two oxygen cells. The scrubber of the system is split in the counterlung. This way making the unit slim. Nice system that can be upgraded in price and function. The bailout system is also EMCCR with a computer designed by submatix.

Since cows have a special meaning for the Dutch wreckdivers, ths cow should have been the club mascot. Also you can see the art and love invested in the design. SDS members must be extremely jealous.  
Even pressure gauges are fitted, please understand these bottles are not OC bottles but dual passive addition rebreathers breathed through a pendulum system!

A very clever design feature. The green part is operated in position open, when the scrubber is mounted. If not the green valve shut off the loop, so no breathing is possible when the scrubber is left out!
