The core of the Omega3 is it's durable, chrome plated all marine brass, levered servo valve - one of diving's most unique designs. It delivers airflow that is proportional to your demand. No more sudden rush of air at depth or fluttering when you're shallow. We accomplish this with an ingenious two chamber balanced design that provides pressure assisted air-flow and near zero inhalation effort. This means that unlike other regulators, the Omega3 has no need for an inhalation-effort adjustment knob.
The Omega3 valve is constructed from a tough and corrosion resistant chrome plated marine brass valve that has better cold water performance and even a better breathing experience than standard plastic valve designs. The all metal valve encourages condensation of water vapor from your exhalation on the valve housing. When you inhale, condensed water vapor circulates with the airflow and helps to reduce dry mouth and increase your overall level of comfort. The servo valve also has no up or down, meaning that it's a truly ambidextrous breather. This design allows you to comfortably route your hoses anyway you like and makes the Omega3 a great choice in an emergency as an backup air source.
The positioning of the side exhaust valve is another example of purposeful design. Keeping exhaust bubbles out of your field of view is a huge benefit for all divers. Photographers & videographers however will be especially thankful for the unobstructed views.
The Omega3 second stage comes paired with our new first stage FDXi. The cold forged, over-balanced diaphragm FDXi is environmentally sealed and comes with our patented Dry Valve Technology (DVT). It's in-line design limits the pressure loss inherent in L type first stage designs making the FDXi more efficient and lighter due to it's compact form
- First Stage FDXi....DVT Dry Valve Technology....Reduced weight
- The Pneumatically Balanced - consistent performance at any depth
- Environmentally Sealed diaphragm - cold water ready
- 4 Low Pressure and 2 High Pressure Ports....Angled ports for ideal hose routing
- Improved flow rate over standard right angle first stages.
