MARES INTRODUCES THE HORIZON SCR AT THE DEMA SHOW
One of the key attractions of the unit is its incredible ease of use:
• Simple to set up
• No tools required
• Easy scrubber access and filling
• Color-coded, quick release corrugated breathing hose connectors
At only 26.46lbs (12kg) the lightweight system is the ideal travel dive companion. Requiring no dedicated tanks, the Horizon can use various size nitrox stage tanks which can easily be obtained at the dive destination.
Following the stress-free set up, the Horizon also provides an incredible overall dive experience. The intuitive system runs constantly on an ideal nitrox mix. The warm airflow provided means natural breathing, not to mention the absence of bubbles, compared to open circuit dives. Wildlife enthusiasts enjoy close encounters like never before. For divers who want to take their dives in maximum safety, the Horizon also offers an awesome 3-8 times longer dive time compared to open circuit dives, giving the diver ample time to take in the incredible underwater scenery.
The ergonomic design of the unit provides comfort for longer dives, including a contoured soft back plate, lumbar support, buttplate and padded harness straps. The ergonomic shape of the unit assists the divers to obtain the ideal trim position. It also has two integrated trim weight compartments that can each house 4.41lbs (2kg) of weight.
A combination of Mares and rEvo’s enhanced technology has created a reliable unit that has been tested for maximum safety and exceptional performance levels. With that in mind it has multiple back-up safety systems, including three sets of redundant electronics and power supplies. An adjustable Head Up Display (HUD) visual indicator informs the diver of gas supply status via a pulsating light. Should an emergency occur, the diver can choose to switch to the Bail Out Value (BOV), ensuring a continuous, open circuit nitrox gas supply.
For the more advanced diver, the Horizon offers a range of advantages. Such as longer dive duration, accelerated decompression and dual gas possibilities and even offers the option of attaching a second tank to use a higher O² concentration nitrox.
The integrated Mares XR dive computer completes the Horizon. It has an easy to read color display and optional wireless gas integration. This intelligent computer even includes a scrubber monitoring system to keep the diver informed of scrubber status at all times.
The simplicity and innovation of our latest collaboration means diving, has reached an incredible new Horizon. It is now time to become part of the SCR revolution from Mares and rEvo!
