Electronic Recreational Dive Planner for Multilevel Dive Planning – Padi Dive Computer

Padi Product No. 70031 ……….REPLACES THE WHEEL………YIPPEE At Last!

“If your doing your Padi Dive Master or Padi Instructor course  (Padi IDC) you want one of these, so much easier than using the wheel for your exams, a Must. Also great for any PADI Diver wanting to plan dives with more bottom time than the normal RDP can give you .. Why struggle with the RDP when you can use an PADI eRDPML
” says our PADI Course Director Joey A. Ridge in Cyprus

PADI eRDPML -  Electronic Multilevel Dive Planner


Features of PADI eRDPML

This is the next generation electronic dive planner. Like its predecessor the Padi eRDP Classic, the new Padi eRDPML is not a dive computer and is NOT waterproof. Padi erdpml is an electronic dive table planner that allows the user to plan single level and multilevel dives. While the first generation eRDP provided the same information as the Recreational Dive Planner (Padi RDP) table, the eRDPML provides the same information as The Wheel, in an electronic format. The Padi eRDPML helps maximize bottom time by allowing dive planning in two-metre/five-foot increments.

The PADI eRDPML has a robust design that includes a flip cover to protect the unit when not in use. The general rules and dive planning abbreviations (NDL, ANDL, ML, etc.) are printed on the inside of the flip cover, which provides easy access to information. Like the previous eRDP, the PADI eRDPML is designed solely for use on the surface — it’s water resistant, not waterproof.

PADI eRDPML allows you to select either metric or imperial for dive planning and offers the same three modes as before:
• Dive Planning – allows you to plan up to five consecutive single depth dives or two- to three-level multilevel dives (similar to The Wheel).
• Surface Interval – for finding minimum surface interval between dives
• Maximum Depth – for calculating the maximum allowable depth for a given time

The same general rules and guidelines that apply when using The Wheel also apply when using the PADI eRDPML. Like the eRDP, the Padi eRDPML will prompt you to use some of these rules. For example:
• Reminding you when a safety stop is required
• Warning you when your planned dive is beyond the RDP limits
• Reminding you when Special Rules for Multiple Dives (W – X and Y – Z rules) apply
• Warning you when your next planned level in a multilevel dive exceeds the multilevel ascent limit (Exceeds ML Ascent Limit)

Incorporating PADI eRDPML in diver courses

Because the Padi eRDPML replaces the original eRDP and The Wheel, you can use it in any PADI course to plan either single level or multilevel dives. Though your PADI Office will no longer distribute The Wheel or the original eRDP, you may continue to use them in your diver-level courses until your stock is used up.

Electronic Recreational Dive Planner Multi Level (PADI eRDPML)

Beginning 1 January 2009, PADI Divemaster and Padi IDC candidates will be required to have and be competent in the use of the Padi eRDPML in addition to the RDP table version. Starting immediately, Padi divemaster and Padi Instructor candidates may use the Padi eRDPML in place of the RDP table and The Wheel during the Decompression Theory and the Recreational Dive Planner Divemaster – PADI Instructor exams and the PADI IE (Padi Exams).

Padi eRDPML In Brief:

The next generation of the Recreational Dive Planner is here and it has gone digital. The Padi eRDPML is an electronic dive table that makes dive planning simpler and more convenient. What it isn’t, however, is a dive computer. Think of it as a specialized calculator that will make your life easier. It is also available in desktop PC Style Padi eRDPML Desktop for an handy Padi Recreational Dive Planner Calculator.

For dive planning and dive logging, you press a couple of buttons and you get the same maximum dive times, pressure groups and surface intervals as when you use the table version of the RDP. The eRDP does the calculations and you get to skip the maths – reducing the potential for dive planning errors. You can choose either metric or imperial dive planning and run the eRDP in one of three modes:

Dive Planning – Which lets you plan up to five executive dives.
Surface Interval – Which lets you find a minimum surface interval between dives?
Maximum Depth – Which lets you find the maximum allowable depth for a given dive time.
Features and Useful Information:
Multilevel dive planning
More robust design
Sound can be switched off
General Rules and all the Padi eRDPML Instructions are on inside flip cover

Because the Padi eRDPML replaces both the eRDP “Classic” and The Wheel, it can be used in any PADI course to plan either single or multi-level dives, its you Padi Electronic Dive Planner.

This is great for padi idc candidates taking the Padi Instructor and Padi Divemaster courses too!
