1 Introduction
Digital 330m is an electronic depth gauge rated to 330m/1084ft. It offers accurate
information for carrying out dives with the use of dive tables. With features such
as continuously updated average depth and ascent speed display, it was designed
with the technical diver in mind. The Digital 330m is manufactured with state of the
art electronic components and is tested with highly sophisticated equipment.
The Digital 330m displays the following information during the dive:
• current dive depth
• maximum depth
• dive time
• temperature
• average depth (continuously updated)
• ascent speed and too fast ascent warning
On the surface, the Digital 330m shows the surface interval up to 24 hours and
has a logbook function showing the last 19 dives.

2 Remarks about safety
E
WARNING
The Digital 330m is a valuable companion for safe diving as long as you observe
the following:
• the Digital 330m does neither replace diver training nor replace a diving partner;
• the Digital 330m does not calculate any decompression data. However, it provides accurate information for the calculation of decompression procedures using dive tables. A profound knowledge of these tables is absolutely necessary;
• during the dive, check the information displayed by the Digital 330m and compare it to your dive plan;
• read this operating manual carefully and completely.

3 Diving with the Digital 330m

3.1 Switching on the device
Automatically: upon submerging in water
Manually: by touching contacts A and B with moistened fingers
After switching on, all the segments in the display
light up for 5 seconds (diagnostic mode): ensure that
all segments are lighting up correctly. Do not use the

After the 5 seconds in diagnostic mode, the Digital 330m switches into ready mode.
After 3 minutes without operation from the ready mode, the Digital 330m turns off

3.2 Current depth
The current depth is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen, in either

meters or feet. The depth measurement is calibrated for fresh water according to
international standards. Therefore when diving in salt water, the Digital 330m will
show a depth slightly greater than actual (2-3% higher). Note that when imperial
units are chosen, depths deeper than 999 ft are shown without the leading “1”.

In the upper right corner of the screen, the Digital 330m indicates the time the
diver has spent below a depth of 1.2 m / 4 ft. The dive time is indicated in hours
and minutes, up to 999 hours and 59 minutes. After 1000 hours, the display of
the dive time starts again from 0. The colon to the right of the minutes flashes
when the clock is running. If a diver surfaces briefly during a dive for orientation
purposes, the dive time continues to run including the time spent on the surface.
If the surface interval is longer than 5 minutes, the dive is closed and entered into
the logbook. Upon submerging in these conditions, the dive time would start
again from zero.

During an ascent, the ascent speed is displayed in the lower right corner instead

per minute or feet per minute. As soon as the Digital 330m does not detect an
ascent anymore, temperature and average depth information appear again.
In addition, Digital 330m displays an arrow when it detects a higher than ideal
ascent speed. The latter varies with depth as shown in the table.

3.7 Diving in mountain lakes
The Digital 330m has an unlimited altitude range. Whereas mechanical depth gauges are dependent on atmospheric pressure and become less accurate with altitude,
the Digital 330m accounts for variations in atmospheric pressure and maintains its
accuracy throughout.
You need special diving tables for dives at altitude higher than 1000 m / 3,000 ft!

4 Surface functions
E
4.1 Surface mode
At a depth of 1.2 m / 4 ft or less, the display shows “---”. Upon completion of a
dive, this is displayed for 5 minutes after which the Digital 330m switches into
surface mode. In this mode, the Digital 330m shows SURFACE and the surface
interval on the screen. The surface interval will be indicated until it has reached
24 hours or until another dive is performed. In surface mode, the Digital 330m
indicates air temperature.
After 3 minutes without operation, the Digital 330m switches off to preserve batsurface
tery energy. However, the surface interval keeps running in the background.

Upon touching contacts A and C with moistened fingers during surface
mode, the Digital 330m enters the logbook mode. The Digital 330m stores
the relevant data for the most recent 19 dives. A dive is only entered into the
logbook if it was deeper than 1.2 m / 4 ft and longer than 2 minutes.
In logbook mode, the display shows “log no.”, the dive number, dive time,
maximum depth, and alternating temperature and average depth as indicated in the figure. The logbook starts from the most recent dive (no 1) and
for each subsequent contact of A and C scrolls through the next dive in
sequence. Keeping your fingers on contacts A and C will call up all dives in
sequence. After the 19th dive, dive number 1 is shown again.
To exit the logbook mode, touch contacts A and B. The logbook mode is
exited also after 3 minutes without operation.

4.3 Low battery warning
During the start-up phase, the Digital 330m verifies the status of the battery. If the
remaining battery charge is 10% or less of the initial charge, the battery symbol
will appear on the display for 10 seconds. In this case, the unit must be replaced
immediately.

5.1 Maintenance and care of the Digital 330m
The Digital 330m is an extremely robust instrument requiring little maintenance.
Simply rinse the Digital 330m with fresh water after each dive and store in a dry
and protected place away from direct sunlight. Sun, extreme heat or cold will
damage the instrument. Do not leave it in the trunk of the car, for example. Also,
do not store the Digital 330m in a wet bag.
