The NOVATECH Minibeacon pressure switch adapter is an add-on pressure switch that can be used with any NOVATECH Mini series beacon. It can be submerged for long periods of time in ocean depths up to 7,300m (24,000 feet). The pressure switch automatically turns the beacon OFF below 10m, effectively isolating the power source, and ON when it returns above the 10m threshold.
The pressure switch adapter provides beacons using conductivity sensors with a surface detection method that is less susceptible to bio-growth. It offers beacons a longer term deployment duration and activates before surfacing, at the 10m threshold.
