Does anyone have info on this SPG? What does the LCD panel indicate.
If anyone has a 1987 Dacor catalog, perhaps you can post the entry of this item.

I have something similar. Came in a red console with an SPG. Bought it with all my new gear when I got certified in 1986.

Still works, and that's a scratch on the front and not a crack. When I "found" it a couple of years ago, put a battery in it, and put it in my BCD pocket. Worked perfectly and didn't leak at 70 fsw.

Don't have the '86 & 87' Catalog, but it's not in the 85'.
In the 88' Catalog I found what seems to be a newer model of your Digital information Center........

Console is identical to the one mine came in, deteriorated over time. I also had the add-on compass.

Dive gear was never cheap! The same regulator I bought in 1968 would be over $1000.00 USD today. Sometimes buying used regulator setups on Ebay is cheaper than buying a HP hose, plus you get other "goodies". I've got a nice collection of good useable LP and HP hoses and other things doing that.
