AP Inspiration, Evolution and Evolution Plus with Vision



It's a Vision Thing


The new APD Closed Circuit Rebreathers (CCR) with Vision electronics – the Evolution and Inspiration Vision are every bit as revolutionary as their pioneering predecessor – the Inspiration Classic - building upon its proven qualities and adding a wealth of technological innovation.


Go Quietly...


Inspiration for Divers


In 1997, after many years of intensive R&D, we launched the world’s first production closed circuit rebreather – the award-winning and best-selling INSPIRATION CCR.

With 3 litre cylinders, easy maintenance and simple preparation - the Inspiration brought the benefits of optimal gas consumption and gas mix at all depths to the forefront of diving.

Quickly becoming the choice of expedition divers, film makers and sports divers alike, ranging from beach diving to RIB diving, right up to 100m expedition dives.

The Inspiration was the first...


...to achieve CE certification; the first (and only) CCR to feature dual independent oxygen controllers (Patented), the CCR to set the standard in PO2 control accuracy and scrubber duration; the first to achieve minimal breathing resistance in all diver positions and attitudes, the first mass produced and affordable CCR on the market.


The first to achieve worldwide distributorship with all that entails, including the development of the first unit-specific training courses by the major training agencies; and not least, the innumerable individual firsts that have been achieved by the many thousands of INSPIRATION CCR divers in the world today - from the discovery of virgin wrecks to personal depth and exploration records.

Vision or Classic


The Inspiration is now available as the Inspiration Vision - with all the innovations and options detailed on this site and the Inspiration Classic - with the original electronics and twin handsets:


Retro-fit Vision


Existing Inspiration units can be retro-fitted with the Vision package.


This upgrade consists of the Vision electronics head on a new Inspiration-size 2.5kg scrubber unit, the Head Up Displays, wristset display and all the options including integrated decompression and CO2 scrubber monitor.


EVOLUTION Closed Circuit Rebreather


Weighing just 24kg with 2 x 2 litre onboard cylinders the Evolution is a 1/3 smaller than the Inspiration - it is compact, light, streamlined and a dream to dive with.


The Evolution has built on the foundations of the Inspiration taking the best of its features - including the unique dual independent oxygen control system (patented) and the unsurpassed over-the-shoulder counterlung design which offers the lowest hydrostatic pressures of any CCR ever built.
