Amron Unveils New Dive Navigation Board

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Amron International introduced their new DNB100 Diver Navigation Board. You may have heard of Amron as a prime vendor or tactical outfitter but their core has always been diving. In fact, they started out manufacturing dive gear and the DNB100 is an inhouse design.

The anti-shock stealth black navigation board features a new, wider console that gives divers additional space between the chronometer and the depth gauge. This design element ensures the diver has full access to the timer’s functionality.

“When the time came to design our own navigation board, we took a hard look at the existing models and how they could be improved,” said Joe Esparza, Product Manager, Amron International. “We noticed the watch and the depth gauge were right up against each other, and this could be a problem for divers wearing gloves in cold water. The wider console means combat swimmers won’t have to take extra steps to get the timer started or stopped.”

In addition, improvements were made to the chemical light holder and Amron engineers used an injection-molded design with brass screw connections to create cleaner, more polished styling on the side boards.

The DNB100 utilizes a depth gauge that measures from 0-50 feet and a precision compass with luminescent numbers, headings and markers that glow in the dark. The board is compatible with either an Amron Compass or the Ritchie RU-90 Voyager Compass. The DNB100 Diver Navigation Board also comes with a convenient black carrying case.
