2 Gauge Console for diving
2 gauge consoles are made with two important instruments. It can be a SPG and a compass, but also a SPG and a depth gauge.
SPG's and Depth Gauges
A surface pressure gauge (SPG) is very important for your dives. They allow you to see how much air is still in your tanks. They’re made of sturdy materials, such as brass or plastic. Often, they have one or more loops to attach a safety lanyard, to make sure you don’t lose it.
SPG’s can be displayed in PSI or bar. However, we only sell SPG’s in bar.
Depth gauges are made to show you how deep you are underwater. After the dive, the trailing needle shows how deep you were on your last dive.
What do you need a dive compass for?
There are several ways to orientate underwater. You can remember a landmark for yourself by looking underwater for elements you can easily remember or you can use a dive compass. There are several situations where a compass is very useful or even necessary. When diving in water with poor visibility, during a night dive or when you come to a dive site unknown to you, it is particularly important that you know which course you need to take to get back.
Where to wear a dive compass?
A dive compass is usually integrated into a scuba diving console. Is your dive compass not integrated into a dive console? Then you can choose to wear the dive compass on your wrist or your hand using bungees, you can also choose to attach it to a retractor.
