Oxygen Analyzer Help

I am considering on buying an oxygen analyzer for nitrox diving. I am looking for advice and recommendations for buying one of these. I’d like to get one that has good reviews, is reliable, and won’t break the bank. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have the portable analyzer from Analox. It is small and takes up very little space. Very easy to use and has always been reliable. http://www.leisurepro.com/Prod/AQUNAOA.html

I have an OMS O2 analyzer and I am very satisfied with it. I know you’re looking at something that won’t break the bank, but, you also have to look at other issues like whether or not the O2 sensor is replaceable. Here is a link to the OMS analyzer: http://www.omsdive.com/oxanalyz.html

You must consider how easy it is to get a replacement sensor and cost, also consider at what point of your rig will you sample the gas such as lp inflator or tank valve ,I prefer low pressure restricted continuous low flow ,they sell it as a kit. good luck don’t pay to much. let me Know if you cant find it where you live.

I have used both of the 2 mentioned above. Like most things in life, each has advantages and disadvantages. I prefer the analox. it seems easier to calibrate, is compact and really durable. One should always be careful using such things, but on a rocking dive boat things can happen.... I have an OxyCheq, but prefer to use the Dive Ops’ analox...
