    Does this (below) mean they are now released?
    Do tell more... please...
    Especially, but not only in regards to full OEM use, not just as back-up.

    Q: With what configuration will the Solid State O2 Sensor work?
    A: They will initially only work in conjunction with the M28 computer and CPOD. The M28 / SSS / CPOD
    configuration can be used as a back up sensor / third cell with any rebreather as well as obviously with the SE7EN.

    @Schwob they are on my Poseidon Price List, so I can purchase them.
    M28 retail is $2k, CPOD with cable is $800, and SSS is $1300

    Got it. Thanks...
    Very proud sensor pricing.
    Not entirely surprised...
    ... but that paradigm shift will take a while before it has a chance to reach me...

    @Schwob yeah it's not cheap, but there must have been mountains of R&D money dumped into so they have to recoup it somehow

    Do you guys think they will ever make these available either as a part that could be incorporated into a gas analyzer or as part of a Poseidon branded analyzer?

    Obviously a little pricey for home users. I was hoping with time and volume that the price might eventually come down. If it's only suitable for a CCR, then I guess volume will always be fairly low.

    @kelemvor you can technically use the Cpod for a gas analyzer if you wanted to, wouldn't be hard to screw on adapters at the end and put a flow meter on there, but the main reason for this drive is CCR's where the sensors get current limited at the high end of the spectrum and start acting weird. A lot of CCR divers I know will "retire" their o2 cells into their gas analyzers because they behave just fine between .2 and 1.0, but are no longer acceptable above 1.0
