The Apeks XTX50 Plus XTX50 Octo Set is a high performance regulator set with matching 2nd stages on a swivel turret 1st stage. Add a pressure gauge and a BCD hose and you have a complete set of regulators that will breathe smoothly at depth and in both warm and cold water.
The DST 1st Stage uses a fully Balanced diaphragm design for consist performance and air flow regardless of depth and performance does not decline as cylinder pressure drops. The first stage is protected by an Environmental Seal to help prevent ice forming on the internal mechanism and also protect the parts from contamination and chemical damage. The DST fetaures two high pressure ports on the main body and four low pressure ports on a Swivelling Turret.
The XTX 50 2nd Stage is a light weight polymer body that has a reversible design which can change from a left hand to a right hand configuration and back again easily by an Apeks technician. Both a Venturi Lever and Breathing Adjustment left you control air flow by interrupting free-flows before they occur and customise the breathing effort of the 2nd stage while in the water.
Please Note this package DOES NOT INCLUDE a BCD or Drysuit LPI hose. These come with your BCD or Drysuit or can be purchased HereView product manual View product manual
Apeks XTX50 Plus XTX50 Octo 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.
|1 Year - 100 Dives|
|Weight in Grams (approx)|
?The weight includes the first stage (DIN fitting), hose and second stage.
