|The Apeks XTX200 topped independent regulator reviews and was respected as one of the best regulators in the world. To improve on this was not an easy task. Our new XTX200 takes all that is good from its predecessor and offers even more. Not only has the regulator been brought right up to date with stunning looks but 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 (not included as standard). The 2nd stage is now manufactured 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. One of the new features is a purge button that is larger for easier diver use and also now offers 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 XTX200 has been thought about to bring the whole unit together so that it not only performs exceptionally well but also looks the part.
The XTX200 can be converted from a right handed hose configuration (as supplied from the APEKS factory) to a left handed one. This regulator also features a 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 XTX200 features the Diver Changeable Exhaust System (DCE) giving divers the ability to change from a small to a large exhaust. It offers the user a choice of the wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (great for underwater photography) and the narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator (ideal for travel). The exhausts are made from strong, yet light-weight material, essential for the diving environment. We supply different coloured mouthpieces and exhausts for regulator individualisation, useful when using multiple regulators with different mixes.
The new Venturi lever still reduces the amount of grit ingress and therefore resists any possible friction giving a smooth operation. The new version has been re-designed with improved ergonomics.
