Don't hold you breath Mike.
Can't see Brad coming back and saying
We got told to feek off.
Probably end up with a five thousand word reply
That will miss out the above six . Lol

None diver as of 2018.
You, like Iain, hide behind commercial diving ... and yet this is a recreational diving forum. If you are so successful in the commercial world why are you here? I suspect its because you're a failure there too.

...results in a very low and by that I believe it to be zero, instance of faulty rebreather builds or components received by OSELs customers to date.
…...just a few posts earlier????? You know there have been problems. Why lie about it?
...and in 3 days you will be able to access the full paper at the Pubmed Central link

Why are we putting up with this drivel again when we all know there is definitely a shady motive for ginger to come out of his pit (must be another court case coming up.). Also why are you posting to Brad when everyone knows it's ginge posting.
Regarding the apoc it promised much and delivered very little, clever marketing resulted in a few people being conned into getting one, Nigerian prince comes to mind.
A pal of mine opted for one used it a couple of times then shelved it while waiting for the electronics (still on the shelf now), he even tried to sell it at cost without success.
The way to shut ginge up is to ask him for the electronics he promised (not a N@90 pod)
The views expressed are my own, worth what you've paid for them, are not on behalf of anyone else and not those of any company I work for etc.
Before Brad has the satisfaction of coming on here and correcting everyone whilst sounding pious and playing on technicalities, there never was a "fully controlled" unit (as in constant PO2 controlled eCCR) proposed by OSEL for recreational use. They made at least one prototype of a military eCCR which I am certain has not been sold to anyone (notwithstanding Brad's claim that "its nice to dive"). The promised recreational rebreather that an earlier poster ambiguously referred to as "fully controlled" was the iCCR. The oxygen control in that unit was fundamentally mCCR, but what set it apart was the alleged capability for preventing you breathing on a hypoxic, hyperoxic, or hypercapnic loop, measuring end tidal CO2, and automatically bailing you out if the loop became dangerous, talking to you, among other things. None of the latter features were ever delivered leaving just an oxygen mCCR that they later started delivering.
The gross misrepresentation of fact that Brad is attempting now is to imply that releasing the oxygen mCCR on its own was always part of the plan (thereby mitigating the embarrassment of failing to deliver the iCCR). Those of us who were around the forums from the mid 2000s on know this (like so many other things he says) to be completely untrue. The early discussions of the "open revolution" rebreather never included the possibility that an oxygen mCCR might be released. It was always the iCCR, right up until the time when it became obvious to anyone watching that they couldn't make it work. That's when they said they would release an mCCR to those who wanted it, and provide the iCCR electronics later.
