Sentinel RedHead Rebreather...





VMS SENTINEL REDHEAD
CLOSED CIRCUIT REBREATHER


Rebreathers like the Sentinel RedHead 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 Sentinel RedHead is a super-efficient gas management tool that uses a fraction of the gas used by open circuit divers. The Sentinel RedHead 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 Sentinel uses a fraction of the gas of open circuit equipment, it can offer significant cost savings too!

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 Sentinel RedHead CCR from VMS Rebreathers.
SENTINEL REDHEAD 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 training programs 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 rebreather instructor.


INTRODUCING THE
SENTINEL REDHEAD REBREATHER



The Sentinel RedHead Rebreather from VMS Rebreathers is one of the most advanced closed circuit rebreathers on the market today, offering divers the ability to go beyond the limits of traditional open circuit diving with a unit that offers unparalleled safety and reliability built-in...

  • WORLD CLASS
    SCUBBER DURATION
    The Sentinel RedHead'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!
  • SAFETY THROUGH
    INTELLIGENT DESIGN
    Safety is at the very heart of the Sentinel RedHead rebreather with all its core systems benefitting from high levels of redundancy and fault tolerance. Our engineers 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.
  • UNRIVALLED PO2
    TRACKING
    No other rebreather on the market can match the Sentinel RedHead for its precise control over oxygen injection, offering a massive step forward in dive safety. The most precise adjustment is just 50 milliseconds long, delivering just +/- 0.02 Bar variation at 100 metres. No other unit on the market comes even close.
  • STABLE GASEOUS
    CO2 MONITORING
    Whilst other manufacturers offer CO2 monitoring as an expensive optional extra, the Sentinel rebreather is fitted with full CO2 monitoring as standard - the only rebreather manufacturer to include this all-important safety feature at no additional cost.

  • FULLY INTELLIGENT
    SECONDARY HANDSET
    Intelligent secondary handset provides decompression and bail out options in event of primary handset failure.
  • CE-APPROVED
    BOV INCLUDED!
    Other units make you pay extra or they're simply not CE approved - our CE-approved BOV is fitted as standard!
  • UNRIVALLED WORK OF BREATHING
    The Sentinel RedHead rebreather excels with one of the lowest work of breathing of any rebreather on the market - just 0.48 Joules per litre at 100 metres on 10/80 trimix.
  • COMPLETE & READY
    TO DIVE!
    Unlike other units on the market, the Sentinel comes complete and ready to dive - there are no extras to buy!


WORLD CLASS
SCRUBBER DURATION



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


Based around a relatively small 2.2 kg axial scrubber design, the Sentinel RedHead'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 Sentinel RedHead 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 Sentinel RedHead 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 RedHead features robust plug and play cable connectors to enable rapid component swapping for diagnosis and trouble shooting.

At the heart of the Sentinel RedHead 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.

Damage to individual components in remote locations is no longer trip or dive ending when combined the with 'Platinum triage kit' concept for team diving. The kit includes spare ha230ndsets and other critical modules to be taken to remote locations ready for instant use with minimum tools.


SAFETY THRU
INTELLIGENT DESIGN



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


The Sentinel RedHead 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 Sentinel RedHead 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.


COMPLETE
& READY TO DIVE...



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


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

There's so much more to the Sentinel than a list of standard parts - it really is the most highly specified and 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 fully CE-approved BOV, primary & secondary HUD and multiple levels of fault management that makes the Sentinel the choice of dive explorers across the globe.
THE EXPLORERS' CHOICE
It's easy to see why dive explorers flock to the Sentinel. At the very core of the unit's design is the fundamental principle that the diver is always better on rather than off the loop - to make this possible, multiple levels of overrides and redundancy are built in to ensure the operation of critical systems.

With multiple levels of operation to ensure resilient responses to problems, bailing off to OC is very much a final solution used only to diagnose problems before returning to closed circuit operation.
