Nauticam is pleased to announce an exceptionally comprehensive vacuum system that allows the underwater photographer to confirm watertight integrity before entering the water. This system provides additional peace of mind with expensive camera equipment and should mean fewer lost dives due to minor equipment issues. The system is comprised of two parts, a one way vacuum valve and an electronic monitoring circuit.

Note: This electronic system is pre-installed in all Nauticam housings post-2013.

If replacing the system installed in your existing housing, please check whether your housing uses a CR2450 battery Vacuum Detection system or a CR2032 and order the same one.

Monitoring Circuit

The electronic monitoring circuit is compactly integrated into the housingNAU-s leak detector, where it constantly measures the vacuum level and reports its status via a multi-color LED easily visible on the rear of the housing. This sophisticated circuit has an advanced temperature compensation capability, so changes in ambient temperature or changes in internal temperature won’t cause a false positive.

Starting with NA-70D for Canon 70D, all new Nauticam DSLR and Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera housing models will ship with the electronic monitoring circuit installed as standard equipment. Vacuum valves are sold as optional equipment, allowing the user to customize the housing accessory configuration as needed. Understanding the LED color codes is very easy. At ambient pressure, the LED slowly blinks blue. When a solid vacuum is achieved, the LED changes to a solid green, indicating system integrity. If the vacuum starts to degrade, the LED begins to flash yellow, and if water intrusion is detected, the LED flashes red, and the audible alarm is sounded.

Retrofits for existing housings are available starting November 4, 2013.

Vacuum Valve

The second component of this system is a one way vacuum valve, which is available in several styles to support various housing configurations. These Vacuum Valves contain an integrated vacuum release, and a redundant waterproof cap. No tools are required to open the housing after creating a vacuum, as the vacuum is released with a simple knurled nut.

The basic valve uses a hand pump to create the vacuum, but a more advanced Dual Activation vacuum valve is also available. The Dual Activation Valve accepts a BCD Low Pressure Inflator Hose quick disconnect, and uses tank pressure to create a Venturi effect that pulls the vacuum. This is recommended for housings like Nauticam’s DCES for RED EPIC and SCARLET where the internal volume of the housing makes using a hand pump impractical.

“Offset” Extension Valves are used when a housing has a single accessory hole, but requires both a Vacuum Valve and electrical bulkhead to be installed in the same location. This will enable most housings to be able to utilize this valuable tool.

All vacuum valves also include a hand pump and spanner tool for installing valves.

The Bottom Line

This new system is the most advanced integrity check system available today, and the only one with integrated leak detection and temperature compensation. With it’s intuitive multi-colored LED status codes, the underwater photographer can now be assured with a simple glance that the watertight integrity of the housing is secure.

International Shipping

Yes, we ship to Australia! We use DHL Express, which should take 1-3 business days depending on your shipping address. Our checkout will automatically determine your shipping cost.

Outside of Australia? Contact us and we can organise.

You can find more information about shipping on our FAQs page.

How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. (For example, we do not stock most housings or ports as there are just too many!) If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock, or if we can get it in a hurry - we often can!

If we have it in stock, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment (1-3 business days), or you can pick it up. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

How do you ship my NZ orders?

If you require next-day delivery in South Island, choose the express shipping option for the South Island. If you spend over $250 get your shipping for free!
