Apeks XTX100 2nd stage
Set of XTX100 regulator 2nd stage - hose included
Auxiliary Emergency Breathing Systems and the new European Standard Our new XTX regulators are the first in the world to meet this new major Safety Standard.
The Apeks XTX100 still tops independent regulator reviews and is respected as one of the best regulators in the world. To improve on this has not been easy. The new XTX100 takes all that is good from the current version and offers even more. The regulator has been brought right up to date with stunning looks and we have also made functional improvements. The 1st stage has been redesigned to offer improved gas flow which now enables this to accept a 5th port. The 2nd stage is now made with active protection against infection as all moulded parts are produced with an additive that kills MRSA, protects against E-Coli, bacteria and fungi, and is also very effective against viruses, mould, yeast and algae. A new feature is a larger purge button for easier diver use and a dual flow rate purge for different operations. We have also redesigned the diver adjustable controls with improved ergonomics on the Venturi lever and the Cracking Resistance Control. Every aspect of the new XTX100 has been thought about to bring the whole unit together so that it not only performs exceptionally well but also looks great.
This new XTX100 incorporates a new front cover design manufactured using high strength materials that protect the most vulnerable part of the demand valve. Quality chrome plated metallic features immediately identify this regulator as a top of the range model.
The purge operation has improved beyond that of its predecessor. The original XTX100 improved on the purge itself. Due to the open design the purge was self clearing and prevented debris build-up. All this is still evident in the new model but with added benefits. The new purge button is larger for easier use and now also offers a dual flow rate purge.
The Venturi Lever of the XTX100 was designed to reduce the amount of grit ingress which resists friction and offers a smooth operation. The new XTX100 lever has improved ergonomics for even easier use and of course still operates very smoothly.
The XTX100 can be converted from a right handed hose configuration (as supplied from the APEKS factory in the standard) to a left handed one. This feature is known as the Reversible Venturi System (RVS). Changing the regulator to a left handed configuration is both quick and simple and can be performed by any APEKS Authorised Service Technician.
The 2nd stage of the XTX100 features our Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE) giving divers the ability to change from a small to a large exhaust tee. It offers a choice of the wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (essential for underwater photography) and the narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator (ideal for use as an octopus regulator).
All new XTX regulators are supplied with our high quality, flexible, light-weight hoses reducing the overall weight and giving extra comfort.
A swivel hose connection is available at an extra cost. This allows the demand valve end of the hose connection to rotate and pivot, providing even more comfort.
A silicone exhaust valve has been used on the XTX100 regulator improving breathing performance.
