The XTX 200 is the flagship among the fleet of fine Apeks regulators. With its bright chrome finish, it’s compatible with EAN 40 while new. This regulator features the Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE) which can change the exhaust tee from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. Both exhaust tees are included with the regulator. The larger exhaust tee is perfect for photography as it provides minimal bubble interference. The smaller exhaust tee is more compact and is therefore more comfortable. The regulator can be converted from a right-hand configuration to a left-hand configuration by a technician. It’s suitable for cold-water use (below 10°C). It’s compatible with EAN 40 when new. It has an over-balanced first stage for superior performance at greater depths. An environmental dry system keeps water out of the main spring chamber of the first stage, which prevents ice buildup and contamination.
There is a 2-stage progressive purge so if it is pressed on the side it will have a lower flow rate than if it is pressed like normal in the center. There is a large venturi lever on the second stage that reduces grit ingress, which prevents friction giving a smooth operation. The second stage is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal and it also prevents mould, yeast and algae from living inside the regulator. A silicone exhaust valve improves the breathing performance of the regulator. The second stage has a heat exchanger that dissipates the cold formed by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of ambient water.
The XTX 200 qualifies for parts for life.
