Safety Notice: Atom 2.0 Voluntary Recall

Released on: 1/10/14 11:04 AM

atom 2.0

Oceanic Worldwide Announces Voluntary
Recall of ATOM 2.0 Wrist Watch Dive Computers

 February 7, 2007– San Leandro, CA – In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Oceanic Worldwide of San Leandro, California, is voluntarily recalling Oceanic ATOM 2.0 Wrist Watch Dive Computers. Oceanic has been notified by its supplier (Pelagic Pressure Systems) that they received isolated reports that two ATOM 2.0 Dive Computers locked into the Gas Switch-to screen and did not return to the Main Dive screen when the divers switched the units from Gas 1 to Gas d2 during dives when they were only using one Transmitter, and Pressure associated with Gas 2 was being provided by an Analog Gauge.

 

 

Affected are Oceanic ATOM 2.0 Wrist Watch Dive Computers having serial numbers 1 through 2079 that were sold between August 2006 and February 2007, and are being used for diving activities that include use of multiple gas mixes not associated with multiple transmitters.

Testing and evaluation has shown that this can occur if the control button used to switch Gases during a dive is depressed too long (4 seconds instead of the 2 seconds required to perform the operation) or it is pressed multiple times for 2 seconds when a Gas Switch operation is performed when there are multiple Gases (FO2 mixes) but not multiple Transmitters. Engineering programmers have modified the software of the ATOM 2.0 to prevent the Switch-to screen from locking on the display.

Oceanic asks that all owners of affected Oceanic ATOM 2.0 Wrist Watch Dive Computers return them to the Authorized Oceanic Dealer from which they were purchased for a software upgrade at no charge.

WARNING: DO NOT CONTINUE USE of the dive computers for multiple gas switching activities until the software is upgraded. Only Authorized Oceanic Dealers and their trained service technicians must perform this upgrade. Non-authorized personnel who attempt the upgrade procedure risk voiding the product's warranty and rendering the product dangerously unsafe for SCUBA use. 

To access / view the serial number / firmware revision number screen while in Watch Mode:

Atom 2.0 recall diagram

Depress the M (upper/left button) for 2 seconds to access the NORM Surface Main screen, the simultaneously depress the A (lower/left) and S (upper/right) buttons 4 times (2 seconds each time).

If revision r3C is displayed, the unit's software program has been updated.

Locate an Authorized Oceanic Dealer closest to you.

Instructions for returns direct to the factory.
