LIBERTY VERSION 2.11.1 (BUILD 5225) RELEASE NOTES

Error corrections

  • Fixed Stack timer stops on surfacing

LIBERTY VERSION 2.11.0 (BUILD 4787) RELEASE NOTES

New features

  • Bailout CCR mode, see bellow
  • O2 calibration recorded in syslog
  • Pressure sensors offset calibration (improved accuracy upon fine sensor failure)

  • Improved brightness setting (TFT handset only)
  • MOD/END values also for diluents

  • Mode change in dive mode moved to submenu (except the most important change in each mode)
  • Emergency pO2 from He measuring must be enabled manually, see bellow
  • All display preferences in dive modes moved to submenu Display (TFT brightness, HUD brightness, screens selection)
  • %He value in technical screen means %He in diluent
  • MOD for diluents uses own formula, ppO2(MOD) <= (ppO2_high - 0.2bar)
  • Alarm "Peer Down" changed to "Other CU down"

Error corrections

  • Compass screen visible if compass module present only
  • Improved unintended wake-up
  • Fixed CU reset on submerge
  • Fixed wrong topology check with single HS

BAILOUT CCR MODE

This mode is intended for use Liberty as bailout CCR device, with another CCR used as main device. In this mode the oxygen is not injected, only the loop volume is adjusted by ADV. Decompression model is updated, where ppO2 equal SP is expected. Diluent from the other device must be configured as "2nd device diluent". When fraction O2 in the loop drops below O2 fraction in diluent (i.e. the diver probably breathes from this device), the standard CCR mode is selected automaticaly.

BAILOUT GF HANDLING

GF handling bound with mode change is now smarter. Mode change CCR -> OC, Bailout GF is selected Mode change OC -> CCR, Standard GF is selected GF manually switched to Bailout GF remains active until manually switched to Standard GF.

PREBREATHE TIMER

Setup / Preferences / Timeouts / Prebreathe time min, default 5 min If set nonzero, timer starts count down as a last step in dive check list. This feature is independent whether check list is enabled or not.

MULTIPLE USERS

Feature must be enabled and multiuser capable HS used (licence for HS needed and bootloader version at least 3.10.0) Left handset stores the profile of the user

  • decomodel
  • device configuration One user can use several devices, and/or several users can share one device. Each user have to use its own HS with his profile.

PPO2 FROM HE

If all chemical sensors fail in dive mode, an alarm "pO2 measuring lost" is raised. If the diluent contains at least 20% He, it is possible to switch the pO2 source to He measuring. Setup / Faulty sensors / pO2 source, options "O2" or "He". Automatic switch is no longer suppoorted. When the He source is selected, all pO2 fields on handset screens have blue background and "pO2 indirect" message is on the base screen. The pO2 indirect field on the technical screen (with sensors) has always blue background, as it shows "pO2 from He" everytime. The %He field on the technical screen become dashed for both sensors, as %He calculation is invalid in this mode.

EMERGENCY O2 INJECTION

If all chemical sensors are not valid (error, disabled etc.), the depth is < 6m/20ft and the pO2 source is O2 sensors, an emergency O2 injection + alarm is done every 6s. In fact, Liberty become an oxygen rebreather (6m / 20ft depth is safe for pure oxygen). This action happens also in Surface mode.

LIBERTY VERSION 2.10.0 RELEASE NOTES

This version was not officially released, all changes are made public in next version.

LIBERTY VERSION 2.9.0 (BUILD 4165) RELEASE NOTES

New features

  • electronic compass and GPS support

Changes

  • He sensors disabled if <20% He in current diluent. Can be enabled manually.

DIVE TIME TERMINATION

Setup / Preferences / Timeouts / Dive Time

Warning: Dive termination setting remains active, if not set to zero.
