Whats in the box:First Stage, Second Stage and LP Hose
The RS-680 is TUSA's latest regulator that delivers superior performance and builds quality in a compact lightweight design. Improving upon the R-670 released in 2009, the R-600 mated with a newly developed S-80 second stage further pushes the engineering and performance envelope. The ultra-compact chromed marine brass balanced diaphragm R-600 first stage is incredibly small and weighs only 22.2 oz (630g). The R-600 is configured with 2 HP and 4 LP portsallowing for versatile hose placement. A DIN conversion kit (SKU: TBTDARS6) is also available. The newly designed S-80 second stage offers the following features: S.E.A. - Sequential Exhaust Assist
The Sequential Exhaust Assist (S.E.A.) is a revolutionary new second stage design featuring a dual exhaust system. The S.E.A. system consists of an enlarged primary and an auxiliary exhaust. The auxiliary exhaust, located on topof the S-80 elliptical case, works in union with the primary to significantly decrease exhalation resistance.
Exhalation resistance directly affects the diver's natural breathing cycle. By reducing this resistance or increasing exhalation performance, the diver breathes more naturally and comfortably reducing respiration rate and air consumption. Paired with the R-600 first stage, the S-80 offers a seemingly effortless underwater experience regardless of the workload. Venturi Adjustment
The addition of a venturi adjustment lever on the S-80 allows the regulator to power assist the diver when underwater utilizing the natural venturi effect. Thediver can also adjust the lever to prevent free flow such as on a surface swim. Moisture Exchange Plate
The S-80 second stage incorporates a moisture exchange plate that captures condensation produced by inhalation and exhalation efforts. This condensation increases the humidity of the air breathed and helps to reduce that "dry mouth" sensation often experienced while diving. Breathing Resistance Adjustment Control
The Breathing Resistance Adjustment Control on the S-80 allows the diver to simply adjust the flow of air according to their needs. The easy-adjust multipleclick knob allows you to quickly and finely tune resistance.
The Ortho-consciously mouthpiece further enhances the comfort of bite, fit, and stability. Even with a light bite, a high level of stability is achieved so there is no fatigue from long periods of usage. For optimum performance and comfort, a swivel hose is fitted between the S-80 second stage and the R-600 first stage. The swivel joint allows flexibility of the hose to eliminate hose tension.
