VMS RedBare Rebreather...





THE VMS REDBARE
CLOSED CIRCUIT REBREATHER


Rebreathers like the VMS RedBare CCR have opened up a whole new dimension in diving, offering the ultimate in gas-efficient 'no bubbles' diving for recreational and technical divers alike.

By recycling the gas that we exhale, the VMS RedBare CCR is a super-efficient gas management tool that uses a fraction of the gas used by open circuit divers. The VMS RedBare CCR offers all the benefits of extended dive times by delivering the most efficient gas mix throughout your dive, giving longer 'no stop' times and more efficient decompression - and, because the VMS RedBare CCR uses only a fraction of the gas of open circuit, it offers significant cost saving on every dive!

Here at Vobster Quay, we're passionate about rebreathers - many of our staff own and dive rebreathers so you can be assured that we know what we're talking about. We can offer sales, service and training on the RedBare CCR from VMS Rebreathers.
VMS REDBARE CCR TRAINING
All our rebreather training programmes are taught through IANTD. IANTD is the only training agency that offers training in all aspects of technical diving through a full range of response-driven diver training programmes, allowing you to expand your knowledge and training with some of the top professionals in the field.

IANTD's range of rebreather courses allow you to develop your skills and knowledge of rebreather diving in a safe, progressive and controlled manner under the direct supervision of an IANTD RedBare CCR instructor.


INTRODUCING THE
VMS REDBARE REBREATHER



The RedBare CCR from VMS Rebreathers is one of the most advanced closed circuit rebreathers on the market today, offering unparalleled safety and reliability built-in...

  • CLASS-LEADING PO2
    TRACKING
    Experience rock-solid oxygen setpoint control delivering just +/- 0.02 Bar variation at 100 metres.
  • UNRIVALLED WORK OF BREATHING
    Breathe easy with the lowest work of breathing of any rebreather on the market.
  • PLUG & PLAY
    COMPONENTS
    Robust plug and play components can be switched out in the field - no specialist tools required.
  • READY FOR TRIMIX
    FROM DAY ONE
    With trimix software enabled as standard, the RedBare is ready to go anywhere!
  • CE CERTIFIED
    FILTER ENDURANCE
    The only CCR to achieve a four hour CO2 'scrubber' duration under 2013 CE testing.

  • INDEPENDENT SECONDARY
    HANDSET
    Backup PO2 monitoring and redundant decompression calculation gives you reassuring peace of mind.
  • FLOOD RESISTANT
    DESIGN
    Water and electronics rarely mix, but we have made the RedBare the most waterproof a CCR can be.


SAFETY THRU
INTELLIGENT DESIGN



Safety is at the very heart of the VMS RedBare CCR with all its core systems benefitting from high levels of redundancy and fault tolerance.


The VMS RedBare CCR designers went back to the drawing board to design a rebreather that overcomes many of the problems that plague other units. CO2, spikes in oxygen levels, unstable cell readings, incorrect assembly - all these potential dangers have been accounted for and mitigated through intelligent design.

All rebreather divers agree that they need enough breathable gas, a working scrubber and battery power that will last the dive. Each dive is spent monitoring these resources by contents gauge, O2 cells and maybe checking for headaches to detect CO2 (the ability of the human body to detect CO2 before problem levels is not reliable). The VMS RedBare CCR takes the legwork out of these checks by directly monitoring PO2, CO2, HP on diluent and O2, plus sofnalime temperature and battery levels, leaving you to focus on enjoying your dive.


WORLD CLASS
SCRUBBER DURATION



Whether you're diving for fun or pushing the very limits of dive exploration, the VMS RedBare CCR boasts a cutting edge scrubber design that delivers exploration grade performance.


Based around a relatively small 2.2 kg axial scrubber design, the VMS RedBare rebreather's scrubber offers the longest CE-test duration on the market - a massive 4 hours under rigorous test conditions. What's more, our scrubber is rated in 4 degrees centigrade water - not tropical conditions!

The secret to this market-leading performance is an efficient design that incorporates an air gap around the scrubber that acts like a Thermos flask, effectively insulating the scrubber from the environment around it. This insulation ensures that the RedBare CCR doesn't suffer from the massive endurance reduction with depth that plagues other rebreathers on the market and provides a very dry environment for the oxygen cells, significantly improving sensor accuracy and lifespan.


REDUNDANCY &
ADVANCED MODULARITY



All technical diving requires a backup system and the RedBare CCR offers a backup process for virtually any scenario.


It includes manual bypasses, component control and a complete Independent Secondary that uses a 100% separate information route to track PO2 and decompression obligations live. That's a second trimix CCR computer working for you, included as standard!

The RedBare CCR features robust plug and play cable connectors to enable rapid component swapping for diagnosis and trouble shooting.

At the heart of the RedBare CCR lies the electronics vault. Machined to fine tolerances from Delrin, the electronic brain is formed from plug and play boards with moisture repellent coating, encased in a robust pod.

All connections to this pod are internally potted to limit water ingress and it is removable for electronics protection during travel. One classic weakness of a CCR is the depth sensor leaking - this is now potted into its own mount to reduce water entry from O-ring or sensor failure.


VMS REDBARE CCR
COMPLETE & READY TO DIVE...



No other rebreather on the market comes even close to the level of specification offered as standard by the VMS RedBare rebreather.


When you buy a VMS RedBare CCR, you're buying an exploration-grade rebreather that's complete and ready to dive. Put simply, no additional extras are required to take the RedBare CCR diving - it really is supplied as a 'ready to dive' unit that includes everything you need. We include cylinders, harness, wing, stainless steel backplate, oxygen cells, CO2 sensor - everything!

There's so much more to the VMS RedBare CCR than a list of standard parts - it really is the most capable unit on the market. It's the fusion of so many unique technologies - from it's OLED handsets and 'plug and play' waterproof cabling to its market-leading CE-certified filter endurance, primary & secondary HUD and multiple levels of fault management that makes the RedBare CCR the choice of dive explorers across the globe.
THE EXPLORERS' CHOICE
When we say that the VMS RedBare CCR is built for exploration we really do mean it - the VMS RedBare CCR is built from the ground up to meet the demand of the most challenging environments. That means everything from operating reliably at the extremes of exploration to the world of the sport diver, where every day and weekend's diving has to be fitted into busy domestic schedules. The same qualities that keep the redBare diving in caves and wrecks will make sure you don't miss your favourite bucket list dives.

It’s always a privilege to be part of someone’s first diving course, helping them to learn the skills required to have fun and stay safe under the water, learning in the manner that comes most naturally to each of us as individuals.

This week though, has been extra-special and something that I’m personally very proud to have been involved with. Six of Great Britain’s finest, supported by the amazing Help for Heroes Official organisation, took on the challenge of learning to dive and approached it with the attitude, determination and humour...
