The IAQUA dive scooter can be used on top and under wate up to 40 m depth. It is battery (accumulator) driven and can be recharged with a fast charger. The IAQUA scooters / DPV weight approx. 29 - 36 KG, have a modern design, are built from state of the art composite material that is supported by marinegrade aluminum parts. Also available in a much stiffer full genuine carbon version.
IAQUA dive scooters are build with simplicity and innovation in mind. All modules are mounted neatly on a tray/platform. Crucial parts (like the handles to hold on and the carry handles) are metal supported (marine grade aluminum). Also in terms of thermal design no compromises were made.
ECU (the brain and power switching center) is milled aluminum and will transport heat very effectively into the air or water. Many competitors like dive scooters, electric surf boards, and other electric powered machines suffer severely from thermal problems! This causes the devices to cut down power, stop, or even get damaged.
MOSFETS are the most sensitive parts of any modern electric driven vehicle. They will transfer battery power into motion, by supplying a precisely triggered frequency controlled high current to the electric motor windings. This high power switching technology is a critical process to manage and control! Most manufacturers rely on radio shack parts or have them customized. IAQUA develops critical parts from scratch, applying latest technologies and up to date components.
MOSFETS need to be cooled down constantly or they will simply burn. It is essential that a manufacturer is able to control thermal dynamics and constructs a technology that safely enables and controls high currents and excessive heat development. It takes the best available parts and most up to date technology in order to compete in that segment. Constant technology revision and improvement is the only way to stay on top of performance, reliability, and also product safety. Watercooled parts are not a solution if a device is actually used on top of the water! Many compeditor's technical design is faulty, because on top of the water (when planing) the technology is partly not water cooled! The technical design must take the harsh conditions of marinetime use into account!
IAQUA not only has the resources and access to the highest technology standards, they also have the engineers that understand how modern technology works and can be applied in an industrial sense. This is what makes the IAQUA DPV unique on the market, because it is the high tech industry discovering and understanding the water sport market!
