Abstract

In electronically controlled closed rebreather diving systems the partial pressure of oxygen (p O2) inside the loop is controlled with 3 pO2 sensors, a microcontroller and a solenoid valve, critical components that are prone to fail. State of the art failure detection integrated in rebreather diving systems for recreational purposes does not offer the necessary reliability required for life sustaining systems. The present paper describes a novel controller that combines true sensor signal validation with safe oxygen injection.
