The Mares Carbon 52x Regulator is a super lightweight regulator made from carbon fibre that is perfect for any type of diving. Lightweight and packed with features the Carbon is at home both in warm and cold water and great for travel. Built to be prestigeous the Carbon not only looks good but out performs most 2nd stages thanks to its Carbon body with increased thermal conductivity.

 

VAD

Unlike traditional 2nd stage designs the airflow goes through a bypass tube as it enters the 2nd stage which delivers a warmer and smoother breathe. By creating a vortex in the airflow the 2nd stage prevents fluttering as you inhale which creates a smooth breathe while still being sensitive. The bypass tube also exposes the cold gas to the warmer water as it passes through, giving it a chance to warm up befor it gets to you.

 

DFC

Dynamic Flow Control maximises gas delivery so the regulator will always deliver as much air as you need. By reducing the pressure drop during the inhalation phase the 52X prevents fluttering for a really smooth breathe from the 1st stage.

Features

  • Carbon technology is lightweight and prevents dry mouth effect when breathing in
  • Dynamic Flow Control (DFC) guarantees a stable flow of air at all depths by minimising the pressure drop
  • Natural Convection Channel (NCC) increases performance in cold water
  • Tri Material Valve provides a perfect seal for reliability and a higher level of safety under any conditions
  • Vortex assisted design (VAD) - reduces the effort needed to inhale so you breathe easier
  • Mesh grid prevents free flow in strong currents
  • Fluid dynamic deflector allows effortless breathing as airflow is properly directed from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece
  • Superflex hose is lightweight and allows total freedom of movement

Specifications

  • First stage weight : International A Clamp - 687g, DIN 300 bar - 513g
  • Second stage weight : 197g
  • Total weight including hose : International A Clamp - 962g, DIN 300 bar - 859g

Mares Carbon 52 Regulator - Features

FeatureProduct Specification
Adjustable Inhalation
?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.
No
Adjustable Venturi
?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.
No
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
?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.
No
First Stage
?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.
Balanced
High Pressure Ports
?High pressure ports supply the pressure gauge and wireless transmitters for dive computers
2
Low Pressure Ports
?Low pressure ports supply the 2nd stages and inflator hoses
4
Second Stage
?An Unbalanced second stage is simply a lever operated valve that is opened and closed as the diaphragm is pulled inwards by the vacuum that is created when the diver inhales. An unbalanced second stage is affected by increased pressure at depth, slightly increasing the effort required to open the valve.

A Balanced second stage overcomes the effects of increased pressure by utilising a balancing chamber. This chamber takes some of the work away from the spring mechanism, allowing a smaller spring to be used which results in an easier breathe. As the chamber uses air to balance the valve it maintains the same resistance as the diver descends and ascends, keeping the inhalation effort the same.
Balanced
Service Information
?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.
