    OK but petrel or nerd don't integrate as a controller right, They act solely as a monitoring device, i.e. there is no solenoid? What does SW stand for?

    SW = ShearWater
    The company that makes the Petrel and the NERD

    Or it could stand for SouthWest if using a compass

    The Triton is an mCCR so no solenoid but a leaky valve. So indeed the Petrel or the Nerd are used as monitoring the cells and, as a computer is integrated, as deco calculation.
    The Triton comes also with a Monox which is only a monitor (no computer function integrated). This Monox has a display AND an HUD.
