The N3 is our most popluar "all-in-one" digital visual and audible altimeter.
The N3 features an anodized aluminum case, rechargeable battery, mini-USB connection, rugged glass lens and is waterproof. The N3 stores 2500 summary logs and 200 detailed logs. It allows you to name your DZ, aircraft and alarm settings. The N3 has 8 selectable alarm groups and allows you to customize your alarm tones and independently set measurement units.
Approach alarms are available under canopy, or you can customize the tone sequences using the companion software. Altitude, speed, and temperature measurement units can be set independently, making the N3 adaptable to the units of measure in use anywhere in the world. It comes with all the accessories needed for a variety of mounting options.
Includes case for wrist or hand mount, wrist and hand mount velcro and USB computer connection cable. Note: A USB Wall Charger is available separately from ChutingStar.com.
Available in black as well as various other colors (shown in drop-down menu when in stock). Manufactured by Alti-2 in DeLand, Florida, across the street from ChutingStar-DeLand.
The average lifespan of the N3 battery should be 500 charges or 10 years (based on charging it once a week if needed). You should only charge the battery when it’s near empty; doing so will help ensure the longevity of the battery’s life. If for any reason the battery is not performing as it should and you’re the original owner, the units have a ten year warranty that covers the battery.
Note for night jumps: The N3 is primarily designed to be used as a visual OR audible altimeter. The unit will not support both the backlight and alarms being active at the same time. For safety reasons the alarms are given priority. If you are using the unit as a visual for a night jump, make sure your freefall and canopy alarms are disabled. (If the alarms are not disabled, the backlight will go out during the period that an alarm is sounding).
Add the Paralog Software for expanded download and logging features. Available separately through ChutingStar.com.
The maximum recommended altitude for the N3 is 25, 000 feet. The N3 will go up to 30, 000 however the numbers will stop counting at 30, 000,then resume upon descent from 30, 000
At these altitudes, the N3 should function inside the helmet with no problem, however exposure to -20 Degrees Celcius or below requires a hand warmer to keep the crystals in the screen from freezing.
