The Cressi MiniConsole 2 is a small scuba diving console that houses the Mini-Manometer Pressure Gauge and the Analog Depth Gauge. Both gauges are high-quality instruments with chrome-plated brass cases and the depth gauge has a diaphragm membrane actuated function. Both gauges have large circular easy-to-read scales. The instruments are housed in a small, modern shaped console boot, made from Polycarbonate and Desmopan (a Thermoplastic Polyurethane), two materials that guarantee protection from shocks, scratches and which, at the same time, is very light.
At the end of the console, slightly to the sides, there are two eyelets for fastening the instrument to the BCD or harness with a clip or lanyard so that it does not hang down with the risk of catching and damaging the environment or the instruments. The luminescent face of the 230' Depth Gauge, the first 40' of Depth Readings are in 10' increments, (which correspond to the area of decompression stops), and are widely spaced for ease-of-reading. For at-a-glance monitoring of depth, the face-is-divided into 3-different colored zones: green up to 66', light-blue from 66' to 130' and red from 130' to the end of the scale. The instrument has a maximum depth indicator that stops on the maximum depth reached during the dive. This function is extremely-handy for logging of dive information.
The Mini-Manometer Pressure Gauge luminescent dial reads from 0 to 5000 PSI (350 BAR). The face is divided into three different colored zones: for at-a-glance monitoring of air, the area from 600 PSI (40 BAR) and below is highlighted in red with a solid BAR and red stripes. If the gauge is used on deeper dives, the red scale extends and fades to 1,300 PSI (100 BAR), this provides for added-reserve-air indication required at greater depths. From 600 to approximately 3,000 PSI is green and from 3,000 PSI (200 BAR) to the end of the scale is blue. The front glass lens is made to act as a pressure relief valve. In the event of a sudden increase-in-pressure the glass-rises-slightly, allowing the excess pressure to escape. The Mini-Console 2 is equipped with a 7/16" threaded high-pressure hose.
