Apeks MTX-RC Regulator

<<  Back to the Regulator Page
RRP 30,590  ฿

 

Go warm, go cold, go deep, go anywhere. Enjoy control in the extreme with the MTX-RC scuba diving regulator. Combining rugged, military grade engineering with the super-smooth breathing experience that Apeks regulators are renowned for, the MTX-RC is the regulator that lets you explore more.


Featuring the same freeze-resistant technology enjoyed by the whole MTX-R range, the MTX-RC resists free-flows in even the coldest temperatures, while offering the user the additional flexibility to adjust the settings for a more comfortable breathe in less extreme environments.


All this is achieved using an innovative first stage design that protects the regulator from freezing and a full set of user controls on the second stage to adjust the breathing performance based on the diver’s individual needs. Includes a tactical style messenger bag to keep your regulators safe on your travels. Perfectly sized for a laptop, it’s also your new work bag!

  Features & BenefitsSpecifications
 
 

1st Stage

 
  • Satin plated brass body with heat exchanging ribs for maximum thermal performance.
  • Break through, innovative over-moulded first-stage endcap and environmental diaphragm helps prevent ice build-up that can cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances. Also protects the first stage from impact damage.
  • Ribbed diaphragm clamp for improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.
  • Unique over-balanced diaphragm design – as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.
  • 5 x medium pressure ports, 4 mounted on a rotating turret for improved hose orientation
  • 2 x angled high pressure ports for optimal hose routing and fitting of transmitters.
  • Double swivel hose for greater freedom of movement and comfort.
  • Easy to grip DIN hand-wheel or over-moulded yoke hand-wheel, only requires one hand to release.
  • DIN, Yoke and M26 Thread available, 300bar, 232bar and M26 300bar (O2) respectively.
  • Tested for Octopus use - EN250A to 60 metres cold water.
  • Nitrox/Oxygen compatible – Up to 40% O2 outside the EU (European Union), within the EU anything above 21% O2 must use an M26 Connection.
 

2nd Stage

 
  • Protective bumpers to protect the second stage from impacts and scratches in the most vulnerable places.
  • Ergonomic and simple to use venturi lever.
  • Oversize breathing effort adjuster makes adjustment easy in cold water whilst wearing gloves.
  • Large purge button.
  • Reversible second stage for either a left or right hand gas supply configuration.
  • A heat exchanger (patented) dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water for a more comfortable breathe.
  • Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). The system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. The regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees.
  • Comfo-bite mouthpiece
  • Flexible nylon braided hose, which has better cold water performance than traditional rubber hose.
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK.
  • No single use plastic in the packaging
