FEATURES and DISPLAYS
5
OVERVIEW
Your d.i.P presents the information that you need before, during, and after your Normal (NORM)
or Navigation (NAV) dives using a combination of easy to read displays and identification icons.
• When set to operate in NORM mode, it functions as a digital depth gauge/timer.
• When set to operate in NAV mode, Headings with Countdown Times that are uploaded from
the associated PC Interface program are provided.
• While operating in either NORM or NAV Mode, all data associated with NAV Mode can be
deleted (cleared) if necessary to prevent missions from being retraced.
This instructional guide is intended to help you become familiar with the functions and features
available and show you examples of displays that you could expect to see in the operational
modes. Read through the complete manual thoroughly.
The rules that you learned during your training still apply to the diving you will do while using the
d.i.P - some will become even more important. Technology is no substitute for common sense and
the d.i.P only provides the person using it with data, not the knowledge to use it.
CONTROL BUTTONS
The two Control Buttons allow you to select operating modes and display options, access specific
information when you want to see it, and operate the Backlight. In NAV mode, they allow you to
start/stop Elapsed Dive Time and call up, start/stop NAV SNs (Legs).
The Left button (Fig. 1a) is named A (Advance) and the Right button (Fig. 1b) is named S (Select).
6
ASCENT RATE BAR GRAPH (ASC)
The Ascent Rate Bar Graph (Fig. 1c) provides a visual representation of Ascent Speed (i.e., an ascent speedometer). More segments
indicate faster Rates of Ascent.
The segments of the Ascent Rate Bar Graph represent 2 Scales referred to as Standard and Navy (based on French Navy tables)
which can be selected using the associated PC Interface program.
Standard has 2 sets of speeds that change at a reference depth of 18
M (60 FT). Refer to the Specifications section for segment values.
WARNING: When set for Standard and at depths
greater than 18 M (60 FT), Ascent Rates should not
exceed 18 MPM (60 FPM). At depths of 18 M (60
FT) and shallower, Ascent Rates should not exceed 9 MPM (30 FPM). When set for Navy, Ascent
Rates should not exceed 18.5 MPM (60 FPM).
c
INFORMATIONAL DISPLAYS
Each numeric and graphic display represents a unique piece of
information. It is imperative that you understand the formats,
ranges, and values of the information represented to avoid any
possible misunderstanding that could result in error.

Depth Displays
During a dive, the Current Depth display (Fig. 2a), indicates
Depths from 0 to 120 M (400 FT) in 0,1 M (1 FT) increments or 1
M increments when greater than 99,9 M. The Maximum Depth
reached during that dive will be displayed during the first 5 minutes on the surface after a NORM (Normal) dive (Fig. 2b).
a
b
Fig. 2 - DEPTH DISPLAYS
Time and Date Displays
Time displays are shown in hour:minute format (i.e., :02:36 represents 2 hours and 36 minutes, not 236 minutes!). The colons blink
twice per second when the display is indicating real time.
• Time of Day identified by the h icon (Fig. 3a) can be set for 12
hour format or 24 hour format.
a
b
Date is displayed only to identify dive data while it is viewed in
the Memo Mode.
• When Units of Measure are set for Metric, the Month appears to
the right of Day (Fig. 3b). When set for Imperial units, the
Month appears to the left of Day.
Fig. 3 - DATE/TIME
8
Temperature Display
Ambient Temperature identified by the degrees and C (or F)
icons (Fig. 4a) is displayed while in the Surface Mode and can be
viewed as part of an Alternate Display when the A (Advance/Left)
button is pressed while in NORM Dive mode.
a
NOTE: The Informational Displays are described in
detail as the various operating modes they appear
in are presented throughout this manual.
Fig. 4 - TEMPERATURE
AUDIBLE ALARM
A single short beep is emitted after the Diagnostic check. When
most warning situations activate the Alarm, the unit will emit 1 beep per second for 10 seconds, or
less if the situation is corrected, or it is acknowledged by pressing the A (Advance/Left) button for
2 seconds. If acknowledged by the diver and the situation corrected, the Alarm will sound again
upon reentry into the warning situation, or entry into another type of warning situation.
Warning situations that will sound the Alarm, if ON • NORM or NAV Max Depth > Alarm Set Point (user set).
• NORM PO2 > Alarm Set Point (user set).
• NORM Elapsed Dive Time > Alarm Set Point (user set).
• NORM Ascent Rate exceeds 18 MPM (60 FPM) if > 18 M (60 FT) or 9 MPM (30 FPM) if =<
18 M (60 FT) when Ascent Scale is set for Standard.
• NORM Ascent Rate exceeds 18.5 MPM (60 FPM) if > 18 M (60 FT) when Ascent Scale is set
for Navy.
• NAV Serial Number (Leg) Count Down Timers reach :00:03 (:min:sec)

BACKLIGHT
• The Backlight does not operate during a Low Battery condition. If it is ON at the time, it will
automatically turn OFF.
To turn the Backlight ON while operating in NORM mode when on the Surface or during a dive:
> press and release the S (Select/Right) button momentarily (< 2 seconds).
• The screens will be illuminated for button depression time plus 0, 5, or 10 seconds (the Backlight Duration time set by the user).
> Press the button again to activate as desired.
• The Backlight does not operate when the Chrono Start/Stop screen is being displayed.
To turn the Backlight ON or OFF while operating in NAV mode when on the Surface or underwater:
> press and release the S (Select/Right) button momentarily (< 2 seconds).
• If NAV Backlight Mode is set for Constant, the screens will remain illuminated until the S button is pressed again to deactivate it.
• If NAV Backlight Mode is set for Time Out, the screens will remain illuminated for 0, 5, or 10
seconds (the Backlight Duration time set in NORM Set Mode).
> Press the button again to activate as desired.
• When operating in NAV mode, Backlight Level (illumination) will be 50% of the NORM
100% Level of illumination.
• Using the PC Interface program, the Backlight can be selected to come ON when NAV Serial
Number (Leg) Count Down Timers reach :00:03 (:min:sec)
10
POWER SUPPLY
The d.i.P utilizes one (1) type CR 2450 Lithium 3 volt cell that will
provide a minimum of 50 hours operation with the Backlight ON
constantly at 50% in NAV mode.
a
Battery Status Indication
The status of the Battery is displayed on an Altitude/Battery Status
screen that appears after Activation and the Diagnostic check.
If battery voltage is satisfactory (=> 2,75 volts), the graphics bAtt
and OP will be displayed (Fig. 5a/b).
b
Fig. 5 - BATTERY STATUS
If voltage is below 2,75 volts, the graphic bAtt will be displayed
with the Low Battery icon (flash symbol) that will continue to be
displayed in Surface Mode, flashing (Fig. 6a).
a
Low Battery Condition
Voltage level is checked upon activation and every minute during
operation on the surface.
• If a Low Battery Condition exists when the unit is activated (by
pressing a button), the Low Battery icon will appear flashing
once per second for 5 seconds followed by shutdown of the unit.
Fig. 6 - LOW BATTERY
(ACTIVATION)
11
• If a button is not pressed to activate the unit prior to a dive, and a Low Battery Condition exists, the Low Battery icon will appear flashing as a warning upon descent to 1,2 M (4 FT) if set
for NORM mode operation or 0,6 M (2 FT) if set for NAV mode operation. No other information will be displayed.
• If the unit did not display the Low Battery icon 'prior to' entering the Dive Mode, and a Low
Battery Condition occurs during the dive, there will be sufficient battery power to maintain unit
operation for the remainder of 'that dive'. The Low Battery icon will then appear upon ascending to 0,6 M (2 FT) if set for NORM or NAV mode operation.
When the Battery is removed, Settings are reset to their default values after 8 seconds. If a new
Battery can be inserted within 8 seconds, the Settings will be retained.
NOTE: Battery change procedures are described later in this manual.
12
NORM FO2
NOTE: FO2 applies only to NORM mode. Setting
FO2 is described later in NORM SET 1.
After Activation, the d.i.P will operate in NORM mode with a default FO2 setting of AIR (Fig. 7) unless the user sets FO2 for a numerical value between 21 and 100 % (Fig. 8).
When FO2 is set for AIR, the unit will perform PO2 calculations
the same as if FO2 were set for 21% oxygen, internally accounting
for oxygen loading for any repetitive NORM dives. However, PO2
displays and warnings will not appear on the display for that dive,
or subsequent dives, unless FO2 is set for a numerical value (21 to
100%).
Fig. 7 - FO2 set for AIR
NOTE: FO2 will remain at the value set by the user
until changed or the unit shuts Off at which time
FO2 will default to AIR and operate set at AIR upon
reactivation. FO2 can then be set by the user to
the value desired for each dive.

ACTIVATION and SETUP
15
ACTIVATION
• To Manually Activate the d.i.P, press/release either button.
Automatic Activation
Only functional if the Wet Activation feature is set ON (a NORM SET 2 selection).
The d.i.P will automatically activate by water contact. This is accomplished by bridging the gap
between contacts located on the stems of the control buttons and pins in the PC Interface data
port.
If the Wet Activation feature is set OFF, the d.i.P will only activate by push button and only if
shallower than 1,2 M (4 FT) depth.
• Upon manual push button activation, the unit will enter NORM
(or NAV described later) Diagnostic Mode (Fig. 9), displaying all
segments of the LCD (as 8's), followed by dashes, then a countdown from 9 to 0.
• Diagnostic Mode checks the display and battery voltage to ensure
everything is within tolerance and functioning properly.
• After manual activation and release of the button, it will check
ambient barometric pressure and calibrate its present Depth as zero.
At elevations of 916 meters (3001 feet) or higher, it will recalibrate
itself to measure Depth in meters/feet of fresh water instead of
meters/feet of sea water.
Fig. 9 - NORM DIAGNOSTIC
16
• During the next 5 seconds, the Altitude Level and Battery Status
screen will be displayed. The Altitude icon (Mountain symbol)
and graphic ALt appear with the Level number 0 or 2 through 7
(Fig. 10a). The graphic bAtt also appears with the graphic OP
indicating that the Battery is operational or the Low Battery icon
(Lightning bolt symbol) indicating that the Battery should be replaced.
• If values are acceptable, the unit will enter Surface Mode. If
any value is not acceptable, the unit will shut down in 5 seconds.
• If no dive is made within 3 hours after initial activation, the unit
will automatically deactivate. If the wet contacts are still
bridged, the unit will then reactivate and display the H2O
graphic.

WARNINGS AND SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS
• The percentage of oxygen (FO2) in the Nitrox mix being used must be
'set before each Nitrox dive'.
• Until it has shut itself off, you should not use the d.i.P at a different Altitude than the Altitude at which it was activated. Doing so will result
in an error equal to the difference in barometric pressure, and possibly
a false dive mode with erroneous data.
• To provide proper Altitude compensation for Depth and PO2, the d.i.P
must be manually activated at the new Altitude. Digital instruments
such as the d.i.P cannot sense changes in barometric pressure if activated by immersion in water at higher Altitudes.
• Every effort should be made to keep the Ascent Bar Graph in the normal zone throughout your dives to reduce your risk of the effects of excessive Ascent Rates.
• In the event that High PO2 occurs, you should focus on reducing PO2
by slowly Ascending to a shallower depth at a safe rate in accordance
with your training to reduce the risk of oxygen toxicity.
42
NOTE: At any time when the d.i.P is Activated, while operating in any
mode on the surface or underwater, depressing the A (Left) button for
10 seconds will stop NAV Elapsed Dive Time (if running) and after another 20 seconds Delete (Clear) all NAV Serial Number (Leg) data.

ALTITUDE SAMPLING/COMPENSATION
NOTE: This information relating to Altitude pertains to calibration/compensation and adjustments of Depth readings and calculations of NDLs. It does
not affect Altitude levels appearing on operating displays.
Atmospheric (barometric) Pressure decreases as Altitude increases above sea level. Weather systems and ambient temperature also affect barometric pressures. Consequently, Depth reading instruments that do not compensate for the decrease in pressure indicate Depth readings shallower
than the Depth they are actually at.
The DIP automatically compensates for decreased ambient pressure when activated at high Altitudes up to 4,270 meters (14,000 feet).
The DIP senses ambient pressure when it is manually activated, every 15 minutes while it is operating on the surface, or every 30 minutes when it is not activated. At an Altitude of 916 meters
(3,001 feet), it will automatically recalibrate itself to measure Depth in meters (feet) of fresh water
rather than feet of sea water. It will then readjust the calibration at additional intervals of 305
meters (1,000 feet). Therefore, when returning to lower Altitudes, diving should not be conducted
until the unit automatically resets to operate at the new lower Altitude level.
WARNING: The MDG will not sense ambient pressures or provide Altitude
Compensation when it is wet. DO NOT dive at any different Altitude until the
unit shuts Off and is reactivated at the new Altitude level. If the unit is activated at elevations higher than 4,270 meters (14,000 feet), it will perform a Diagnostic check followed by immediate shutdown.
52
NOTE: At any time when the d.i.P is Activated, while operating in any
mode on the surface or underwater, depressing the A (Left) button for
10 seconds will stop NAV Elapsed Dive Time (if running) and after another 20 seconds Delete (Clear) all NAV Serial Number (Leg) data.

Numbers) or NAV Leg #s, SN Headings, and SN CDTs (Count
Down Times) are entered only using the PC Interface program.
Fig. 55 - PRIOR TO FIRST DIVE
Once a Dive is started in NAV Mode, it essentially stays in Dive
Mode and data displayed continues without regard to Depth
(e.g., there is no real Surface Mode, only Dive Mode while on
the surface with zero Depth).
If the diver surfaces after an initial Descent is made, Depth will
be displayed as 0,0 M (0 FT) instead of as 3 dashes as it is upon
surfacing after a NORM Dive.
Fig. 56 - DURING NAV DIVE
When NAV Mode is set ON, the d.i.P will initially enter NAV
Dive Mode upon Descending to 0,6 M (2 FT) for 3 seconds and
display the NAV DIVE MAIN screen.
Sample screens:
• Fig 55 - Depth prior to the first Descent as 3 dashes (- - -) M
(FT).
• Fig 56 - Depths after Descent to 0,6 M (2 FT) as actual.
• Fig 57 - Depths of 0,3 and 0,0 M (1 and 0 FT) as 0,0 M (0
FT).

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
The Battery Compartment should only be opened in a dry and
clean environment with extreme care taken to prevent the entrance
of moisture, sand, debris, or dust.
As an additional precautionary measure to prevent formation of
moisture in the Battery Compartment, it is recommended that the
Battery be changed in an environment equivalent to the local outdoor temperature and humidity (e.g., do not change the Battery in
an air conditioned environment then take it outside during a hot
sunny day).
Battery Hatch Removal
• Inspect the Buttons, Lens, and Housing to ensure they are not
cracked or damaged.
• If there is any sign of moisture in the module, DO NOT use the
d.i.P until it receives proper service by an Authorized d.i.P Service Technician, or the factory.

GLOSSARY
Air Dive - A dive conducted using air (approximately 21% oxygen & 79% nitrogen) as the breathing gas.
Alternate Display - Additional information accessible by pressing a control button.
Altitude Dive - A dive made at an elevation above 915 meters (3000 feet) where reduced no decompression and
O2 times are used for calculations, and Depth readings are adjusted.
Ascent Rate - The speed that a diver ascends toward the surface.
Ascent Rate Indicator - A bar graph that shows ascent rate as segments.
Audible Alarm - An emitted tone that alerts the diver to potential danger.
Battery Icon - A display symbol that flashes (while in Surface Mode) to indicate a Low Battery Condition.
Caution Zone - The section of the Ascent Rate Indicator that gives a visual warning of a diver’s proximity to fast
ascent rate.
Depth Sensor - an electro-mechanical device that converts water pressure into an electrical signal, that is converted
to a visual depth display.
Diagnostic Mode - The first display seen after manual activation during which time a self–check for internal faults
is performed.
Display - A visual readout of information.
Dive Memo Mode - A display of previous dive information stored in memory.
Elapsed Dive Time - The total time spent underwater during a dive.
FO2 - The fraction (percent / 100) of oxygen (O2) in the breathing gas mixture.
Icon - a small pictorial representation (symbol) of an operational mode.
LCD - Abbreviation for liquid crystal display, an easily viewed low voltage display usually found on digital
instruments.
Maximum Depth - The deepest depth attained during a dive.
Mode - A specific set of functions in an instrument.
Out of Range - The point at which an instrument can no longer supply correct dive information.
Partial Pressure - The proportion of the total pressure contributed by a single gas in a mixture of gases.
PO2 - Partial pressure of oxygen. The proportion of total pressure of a gas mixture contributed by oxygen.
Transducer - An electro-mechanical device in an instrument that acts as a depth or pressure sensor.
