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 the Contaminates to enter the Internal Mechanism.
The FDX10 features DVT (Dry Valve Technology). DVT takes keeping the Internal Components Clean of Contaminates to the Next-Level. DVT is an Innovative Design that keeps Moisture and Contaminants Out-of-the-First Stage, even if you forget to put the Dust Cap-On. Have you ever wonder why they call it a "dust cap" and not a Water Cap. DVT eliminates the possibility of Moisture entering the First Stage with a simple, yet ingenious design. No-Hassle, No-Worries. What about performance? DVT doesn't impact first stage performance even at 198' (60 meters) with just 200 psi (14 bars) in your tank. The result is an end to flooded regulators! Oceanic's exclusive DVT is designed to automatically eliminate moisture intrusion and contaminants from entering your breathing system. This means Internal Components Remain Corrosion and Bacteria Free. Amazing, Simple, Patented, and by the way, DVT is only available on Oceanic Regulators.
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 Mouth Piece 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.
This product has a limited warranty of 24 months.

Comments about Oceanic EOS FDX10 DVT Regulator with Swivel:
FROM DIVE 1 THIS REGULATOR MADE LOUD HARMONIC
NOISE.I CALLED OCEANIC AND COMPLAINED , SENT REGULATOR TO OCEANIC FOR YEARLY OVERHAUL. I HAD THE SAME RESULTS. THIS REGULATOR ALSO WILL FREE FLOW ON THE SURFACE IF YOU FORGET TO BACK OFF THE ADJUSTMENT KNOB. THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT TO STOP IS TO PUT YOUR FINGER IN THE MOUTH PC.DIVING OVER 30 YEARS I NEVER OWNED A REGULATOR THAT I WAS SO DISAPOINTED WITH.THIS REGULATOR IS DISCONTINUED AND IT IS NOT DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHY.
