A lightweight, portable control box for use in surface supplied air diving operations. The KMACS 5 controls the diver’s air supply, communications and monitors the diver’s depth. It allows two divers clear push-to-talk (two wire) or round robin (four wire) communications. The KMACS 5 is also available without communications.
The air supply can be from either a low-pressure compressor or high-pressure cylinders. The KMACS 5’s adjustable first stage regulator reduces the high-pressure air and supplies low pressure through the umbilical to the diver’s breathing system. High-pressure yokes with DIN adapters permit U.S. standard scuba cylinders or DIN valve cylinders to be used. A low-pressure air supply fitting allows for a L.P. compressor to be used as the primary air source.
A complete pneumo system with dual reading gauges (both US Standard and Metric) is provided for each diver, as well as a shut-off/bleed system that uses two high-pressure feed lines which allows changing of used cylinders without interruption of the diving operation. Shut off valves allow the isolation of each diver’s air supply. The Communication Set is a multipurpose intercommunication system that provides reliable and clear communications between a topside operator (tender) and one or more surface-supported divers, diving bells, personnel transfer capsules (PTC)s, recompression chambers, or other submersible systems. The lightweight, high impact polyethylene plastic case features double-wall construction and extra thick corners that ensure exceptional strength and long work life. An O-ring seal protects hardware from moisture when the case is closed. All latches are stainless steel for maximum work life.
