    Suunto Olf

    Hello,
    Basically what is "OLF" in Suunto computers?
    I read explanation in the manual for Vyper. But my understanding of the topic went nowhere...
    thank you.

    OLF (Oxygen Limit Fraction) is basically the measurement of your Oxygen Exposure.

    ooook, so when should one start worrying about oxygen exposure?
    I would assume that the bar should go up ( the same way nitrogen loading goes up ). Just don't know for sure.
    Another question - during the dive it started blinking from the second segment, not from the first ( bottom ) one up....
    thnx

    As mentioned, that's just a measure of your oxygen exposure. If you're diving air, it's not something you'll typically worry about (your nitrogen exposure will be the limiting factor). It sounds like you've got your computer in 'Nitrox' mode. If I were you, I'd set it to 'Air' mode and you'll get a "consumed bottom time" graph where you're seeing the OLF now... More useful information to you right now. When you take a Nitrox class, OLF will make more sense...

    thnx
