The XTX 200 with XTX 40 octopus regulator set incorporates the top of the line XTX 200 second stage combined with a very reliable XTX 40 octopus.
The FSR first stage is a high performance diaphragm design with environmental seal for improved cold water performance and reliability. This over-balanced first stage provides four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports at pre-orientated angles for optimal hose routing.
The XTX 200 second stage provides all the features that you would expect from a high specification regulator including a balanced down stream valve for performance, customisable inhalation resistance, venturi air flow control, diaphragm deflector to prevent strong currents causing the valve to flutter and anti-bacterial bridged mouthpiece. The XTX additionally has a reversible design allowing a trained technician to swap the hose handing and interchangeable exhaust deflectors which are switchable between a compact deflector or a wide deflector.
The XTX 40 uses the same basic components without some of the extras to reduce the overall cost. The second stage still features a venturi control, diaphragm deflector, reversible housing and anti-bacterial mouthpiece.

Apeks XTX200 Plus XTX40 Regulator Set - Features
?This feature allows the diver to adjust the inhalation setting from the set level and increase the effort required to open the 2nd stage valve to deliver air.
?The venturi control affects how air flows in the 2nd stage. In it's positive position the flow of gas creates a vacuum against the diapragm, helping to open the valve. In it's negative position it will divert gas back against the diaphragm helping to close the valve. It is basically used to help prevent free flowing.
|Cold Water Rated|
?Cold water has adverse effects on regulators and can cause some to freeze so each regulator combination must be tested during manufacturing for their performance in different water temperatures.
Cold water is defined by EN250 as below 10°C. If a regulator combination cannot meet the performance standards below 10°C then they are only suitable for warm waters.
EN250 / (EN250A >10°C)
To pass the regulator must provide at least 62.5 L/min of air at 50M depth above 10°C.
|Cold & Warm Water|
?Environmentally sealed 1st stages offer greater protection against freezing when diving in cold water (below 10 degrees C)
Scubapro have a new method of cold water proofing their first stages called the eXtended Thermal Insulating System or XTIS which still allows water into the first stage but the internal parts that come into contact with the water are coated to prevent ice from forming.
?Unbalanced regulators are affected by the pressure in the cylinder, becoming slighty harder to breathe from when the pressure starts to drop.
Balanced regulators are not affected by the cylinder pressure or depth.
Over-balanced regulators achieve unprecedented performance by increasing your air supply the deeper you go providing the best breathe for deep divers.
|High Pressure Ports|
?High pressure ports supply the pressure gauge and wireless transmitters for dive computers
|Low Pressure Ports|
?Low pressure ports supply the 2nd stages and inflator hoses
?All regulators need to be serviced to keep them in working order as the parts inside them age and wear over time and with use. Most regulators need to be serviced once a year or after 100 dives with normal recreational use to replace parts and re-balance.
Some regulators use more modern materials or mechanisms that allow them to extend the servicing interval that can save you some money in the long run.

|Weight in Grams (approx)|
?The weight includes the first stage (DIN fitting), hose and second stage.
