Oceanic XTC-100 Dive Computer

Your XTC-100 presents the information that you need before, during, and after your air (or nitrox) dives using Oceanic’s intuitive combination of easy to read displays and unique identification icons. Tissue loading of nitrogen, accumulation of oxygen, and ascent rate are presented as segmented bar graphs alongside color coded reference indicators that bring quick focus to these important status displays.
As you progress through this instructional guide, you will become familiar with all of the unique functions and features available and see examples of the displays that you could expect to see in the various operational modes. Although it will require an initial investment of time to become acquainted with the various icons and bar graphs of the Graphic Diver Interface, you’ll soon agree that the XTC-100 is easy to understand and use.
The XTC-100 has a wide array of features described in detail throughout the pages that follow. Due to the importance that they be understood thoroughly prior to using the XTC-100, information will be expanded upon and some refreshed as you proceed. Relax and read through the complete guide.

The XTC-100 is intended for use by recreational divers who have successfully completed a nationally recognized course in scuba diving, and diving with enriched nitrogen-oxygen (nitrox) mixtures.
It is intended only for no decompression diving, NOT intentional decompression diving.
It is NOT for use by military and commercial divers.

The programs within the XTC-100 simulate the absorption of nitrogen into the body by using a mathematical model. This model is merely a way to apply a limited set of data to a large range of experiences. The XTC-100 dive computer model is based upon the latest research and experiments in decompression theory. Still, using the XTC-100, just as using the U.S. Navy (or other) No Decompression Tables, is no guarantee of avoiding decompression sickness, i.e. “the bends.” Every diver’s physiology is different, and can even vary from day to day. No machine can predict how your body will react to a particular dive profile.

Read and understand this owner’s guide completely before diving with the XTC-100.
