CLASSIC INSPIRATION REBREATHER SPECIALITY

Training through our Technical path

INTRODUCTION

The Classic Inspiration CCR was launched in 1997 after many years of intensive R&D, and was the world's first production closed circuit rebreather.

With 3 litre cylinders, easy maintenance and simple preparation - the Classic Inspiration brought the benefits of rebreather diving to the forefront. It quickly became the choice of expedition divers, film makers and sports divers alike, ranging from recreational diving to 100m/328ft expedition dives.

The rebreather features dual independent oxygen controllers and was the first mass produced and affordable CCR on the market. The unit has worldwide distributorship with many thousands of INSPIRATION CCR divers in the world today.

The Inspiration is also available as the Inspiration Vision. The existing Classic Inspiration units can be retro-fitted with the Vision package. This upgrade consists of the Vision electronics head on a new Inspiration-size 2.5 kg scrubber unit, the Head Up Displays, and wrist display with all the options.
