Every breath is a dream come true
For over 30 years, Oceanic's R&D group has taken advantage of new materials, development of rapid prototyping, advanced computer aided design systems, objective testing, and lots of open water dives in an effort to develop a regulator with the lowest measurable inhalation effort in order to provide air to a diver at the extremes of human capacity.
When engineering brought the near complete EOS in for conformational testing the results were so astounding, the laboratory stopped testing and performed a complete calibration of all instruments, and in re-testing the EOS was found to have a near effortless inhalation resistive effort on test after test. Perfect.
Comprised of precision-machined components and extensive research and design, the EOS regulator has achieved an incredible feat lifelike breathing. Oceanic's gifted team of design engineers has included effortless breathing, inhalation effort adjustments, and comfortable second stage swivels and orthodontic mouthpieces into a regulator that you can hold in the palm of your hand. This is far more than just another regulator in the eyes of the Oceanic team, this is a dream come true.
The FDX10 offers a balanced diaphragm and is made of forged chromed marine brass. The balanced diaphragm, first stage regulator is inherently environmentally sealed. The benefit of this type of first stage design is that none of the delicate internal parts are exposed-to-contaminants such as salt, sand, chlorine or pool acids. These environmental contaminants can cause corrosion and mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance. A diaphragm first stage regulator requires less-maintenance then regulators that allow contaminates to enter the internal mechanism. The FDX10 DIN first stage comes ready to use with air or Nitrox mixtures up to 40%. First stage has 4 low pressure (LP) and 2 high pressure (HP) ports. FDX-10 features optimized air paths and angled hose ports for superior performance and comfort.
In addition the FDX10 First Stage Regulator has a secondary diaphragm to completely seal-off the main spring cavity. A sealed balanced diaphragm design; ENVIRO kit and patented DRT (Dry Regulator Technology) isolate the main spring cavities internal components from the environment. It also means the FDX10 is excellent for ice diving (it won't freeze up) or diving in waters filled with contaminants or sediment (it won't corrode).
The EOS Second Stage is a phenomenal breather allowing the diver extensive control over the air flow profile at any depth. The EOS comes with Oceanic's patented Dynamic Adjustment Technology, diver inhalation effort adjustment controls, dive/pre-dive switch, in-line ball swivel, 3/8" threaded Maxflex 30" (76.2cm) hose and a super comfortable orthodontic mouthpiece to reduce jaw fatigue.
The EOS/FDX10 combination is everything you need for a sublime breathing experience at any depth the EOS will perform with reliability, consistency and comfort and makes taking your favorite regulator literally anywhere, that much easier. The Regulator weighs 34.7oz (984g) without the Hose, is Nitrox Compatible Up to 40% Out-of-the-Box, comes with an Owner's Manual and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
