Introducing the Sleek New Oceanic Omega3 Side Exhaust Regulator, once again Oceanic needed to break a few conventions in order to provide the kind of performance they demand in their gear. From the unique Levered Servo Valve to the placement of the Dive/Pre-Dive Switch and the positioning of the Side-Exhaust Valve... everything has been considered. The Omega3 isa Daringly Unique Regulator Design and a Perfect-Example of how Diver Ergonomics-and-Valve Function can come together to produce a Regulator that is Far-More-Superior than Traditional Designs.
The new Cold Forged, Over-Balanced Diaphragm FDXi First Stage comes with DVT and is Environmentally Sealed. The In-Line Design Limits the Pressure Loss inherent in "L" Type First Stage Designs making the FDXi More Efficient and Lighter due to its Compact Form.
The FDXi offers a Balanced Diaphragm. 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 EnvironmentalContaminants 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 FDXi 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 FDXi First Stage Regulator has a Secondary Diaphragm to completelySeal-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 FDXi is excellent for Diving in Waters Filled-with-Contaminants or Sediment (it won't corrode). First Stage has 4 Low Pressure (LP) and 2 High Pressure (HP) Ports. The Regulators Angled Ports provide Ideal Hose Routing and Improved Flow Rate over Standard Right-Angle First Stages.
The Omega3 Second Stage is an Pneumatically Balanced Servo-Assisted Valve, it works in the same way as does the Power Steering you may have on your car it's all about Compensation. Prior to diving, when you PresSurize-the-Regulator, you hear a Swooshing" Sound of Streaming Air. The System is then activated. On Inhalation, the Forces from the Inhalation Diaphragm Easily overcome the Light Forces to Crack-Open or tilt" the Servo-Valve and in turn evacuate all Inner Volumes. The Regulators Bladder-Valve then collapses and in turn lets an amount of gas out, corresponding tothe actual demand. This Technology ensures that the Lightest-Possible-Effort can result in an almost Limitless-Amount of Gas on Inhalation.
The Omega3/FDXi has an In-Line Ball Swivel, 3/8" Threaded MAXFLEX 30" (76.2cm) Hose and a Super-Comfortable Orthodontic Mouth Piece all to Reduce Jaw Fatigue and provide Superior-Comfort.
The Omega3/FDXi combination is everything you need for a sublime breathing experience at any depth the Regulator will perform with reliability, consistency and comfort and makes taking your favorite regulator literally anywhere, that much easier. The Regulator weighs 26.7oz (757g) 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.
