Thank you for your prompt reply Bill! Im not sure I understand the 2 wire 4 wire comm setup? Also Im not sure if you answered the wireless comm setup I also have. We are using Aga full face masks with the OTS earphones and mic system rigged both wired AND using the OTS 2010 wireless system as needed! My question is, does the MK2-DCI comm box work with the OTS 2010 wireless system? Thanks again for your prompt reply and Im sorry for the comfusion. Dep. Doug Gay Benton Co Dive Team
I am interested in this comm box for our team. What I would like to know is if it can be used either wired and/or wireless? Thank you in advance for your prompt reply to this matter. Dep. Doug Gay Benton Co Sheriffs Office Bentonville, Ark
It will provide one or two divers, using a Full-Face Mask and Ear/Microphone Assembly, with clear communications either in the 2- or 4-wire mode. However, up to 6 divers can be stacked and all be on line together (4-wire mode). Because Four Wire Mode allows the diver to be monitored throughout the entire dive without cutting him off when top-side speaks, this is the system OTS recommends. If the diver starts to stress, the tender can hear the breathing rate. If the diver starts to panic, the tender can easily talk the diver through what needs to be done. With two-wire mode cutting the diver off during every PTT exchange there is limit to communication.
