Cypres2 AAD
Cypres2 Overview

The CYPRES 2 is the second generation of microprocessor controlled, automatic activation devices specifically designed for sport skydiving. The control unit has a single button used to calibrate the unit for your take off and landing altitudes. The Cypres 2 has all the proven features of the original Cypres, which include:

  • activation altitudes
  • activation velocities
  • user interface (single push button)
  • loop cutting system
  • CYPRES closing loop
  • 14 hours run time
Optimized parameters:
  • self-test is completed in 10 seconds
  • Changing altitude reference - same procedure but faster
CYPRES 2 offers numerous additional features and attributes including:
  • unit is water-resistant for 15 minutes at a depth of 15 feet (5 meters) in fresh and salt water
  • power supply of CYPRES 2 is maintenance-free for the user
  • There is no need to observe a replacement date, record the number of jumps made, monitor the voltage during self-test, purchase a battery, or have a rigger open or repack the reserve for this reason
  • unit serial number accessible from the display anytime you want to see it
  • next maintenance due date accessible from the display anytime you want to see it
  • reminds you when the maintenance date comes near
  • smaller and lighter
  • robust, rigger friendly case, with rounded corners and edges
  • extended maintenance window: +/- 6 months from month of manufacture, no down-time during the busy part of the year regardless of month of manufacture
According to Airtec's current standard of knowledge, the total lifetime of CYPRES 2 should be 12 years.

Working Principle

Once it is switched on, the Vigil® performs a complete self test to check all internal parameters and calibrates itself at the atmospheric pressure of the DZ altitude.

The Vigil® is now ready for use and is in “stand-by” status (recalibrating itself every 32 secs). During taking off, the Vigil® will go to an “active” status once it reaches 150 ft. in a time of max. 32 sec. From that moment on your Guardian Angel is ready to help you in a critical situation. The Vigil is now in active status, taking measurements 64 times per sec.

Accurate Calculation: Once the door opens and you leave the plane, the Vigil® will calculate the time left over before reaching the activation altitude (for example: 840 ft in PRO mode), by continuously measuring your falling speed and your altitude. The Vigil® takes into consideration speed variations during freefall and recalculates every 1/8th of a second the time left over to reach the activation altitude. When you reach the activation altitude (time = 0) and if you're still falling at a speed above 75MPH , the Vigil® will activate the cutter instantaneously to allow your reserve parachute to deploy. This patented method gives a very accurate activation altitude (+/- 60 feet).

Vigil® works by permanent recalculation of the time left before activation.
