Unless the unit is a fully manual Revo, in which the monitoring systems are both fully independent and fully redundant, nothing else is redundant from an engineering perspective. That is not up for debate, it is a fact. If you believe the scrubbers are redundant, shame on your instructor for misleading you and if you have an electronic Revo and think the electronics are redundant, shame on your instructor for misleading you because they are not.
God is not a good analogy because it is not something we can prove. What you are saying is that you perceive the earth as being flat therefor you believe the earth is flat. Unfortunately the earth is not actually flat, ergo you are not entitled to that opinion because it is a fact.
A rEvo with a Petrel/Predator handset, and a NERD, and 5 (or 6) O2 sensors has fully independent, fully redundant ppO2 monitoring.
That is the same whether there is a solenoid in the unit or not.
Can any other unit on the market make the same claim? Maybe the Liberty - sort of - because the Liberty does not have 3 cells on either "side" to afford the safety of Voting Logic (which, apparently, EVERYONE else except Poseidon agrees is a good idea).
Look, if you gave me a Revo and said you have to use it as your primary backmount unit, I wouldn't complain. I wouldn't use it in its stock configuration because I think 5-cells is ludicrous, and I would bitch about it because it won't dive in flat trim in a wetsuit,
Have you dived a rEvo? What is your basis for saying it won't dive in a wetsuit in flat trim? I have no trouble staying in flat trim with my rEvo, in a drysuit or a wetsuit or board shorts and a rash guard. With no lead at all.
