The Petrel 2 from Shearwater Research of Canada is a full decompression dive computer incorporating the Bühlmann ZHL-16C algorithm, with user configurable Gradient Factors (GF). Gradient Factors allow the diver unique and individual control of their dive computer decompression calculations.

An optional PIN upgrade to the Varying Permeability Model (VPM-B and VPM-B/GFS) decompression algorithm is also available.

The Petrel 2 includes a richly featured 'gauge mode' configuration, along with a three-axis tilt-compensated digital compass. The included CCR mode for rebreathers provides the ability to perform constant PO2 set point calculations for deco. During a decompression dive, the Petrel 2 provides complete information displays of all required stop times. The Petrel 2 can provide time-to-surface based on "look ahead" at planned gas switches. Multiple gas definition presets are supported with any combination of oxygen, nitrogen and helium. The Petrel 2 will NOT "lockout" after a missed stop or ascent rate violation. After the dive, the Petrel 2 communicates via next generation Bluetooth Smart™ with iOS devices such as the iPad and iPhone.

In addition to current Shearwater and third party support for Mac and PC desktop applications, users are now able to download dives using their iOS devices in conjunction with third party applications.

The Petrel 2 offers a screen display utilizing a low-power consumption, high resolution QVGA, full color LCD display. The display will automatically adjust intensity based on available light to make the display easily readable whether on the surface in sunlight, in open water or in a cave. The full color display is used to convey additional meaning with the information being displayed. When information is yellow or red, it calls the divers attention to an unusual value or problem. With the large color display, a buddy or instructor can glance at your Petrel2 to determine your status.The Petrel 2 has been designed to accept any type of AA size battery including alkaline, lithium and rechargeables. Included with every Petrel 2 are two elastic straps with buckles, gold contact battery holder and battery already installed (ready to dive out of the box!), USB Bluetooth adapter, mini-CD with Petrel Manual (PDF) and printed Quick Start Guide with instructions for downloading software from the Shearwater Research website. The Petrel 2 also includes a screen protector already installed to help prevent scratches of the display face. The software includes a complete dive log manager, compatible with both MS Windows and MAC OS X. The dive log manager supports log downloads and firmware updates via the Bluetooth wireless interface of the Petrel.

RECREATIONAL OPEN-CIRCUIT FEATURES

Key features of the Recreational Open-Circuit mode (aka Recreational Nitrox mode) include a simpler menu structure, less cluttered display with a larger font and configurable bottom row, optional safety stops, and a no-decompression limit dive planner. The simplified settings allow for three breathing gas mixtures (Air or Nitrox) and places a greater emphasis on the maximum operating depth (MOD) and no decompression time limit (NDL). The display prominently warns the diver if their depth is near, at or exceeds the MOD of the selected breathing gas. The diver also simply selects one of three levels of NDL conservatism and during the dive a bar graph turns from green to red as the diver approaches the NDL. An optional 3 minute countdown safety stop starts when the diver reaches shallower than { 20 feet | 6 meters } on the ascent. If the diver exceeds the NDL and requires stops, the display turns red and warns "DECO STOP" with the mandatory depth and stop times.
