This top-of-the-line cold forged, over-balanced diaphragm first stage is environmentally sealed and comes with 4 low-pressure and 2 high-pressure ports. It also comes equipped with a heat exchanger for added cold water performance. The eDX offers a balanced diaphragm design and is made of forged chromed marine brass. The balanced diaphragm, first stage regulator is inherently environmentally sealed. Water enters the main spring cavity and the pressure increase from the water is transmitted to the internal components by the impermeable diaphragm membrane. 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 these contaminates to enter the internal mechanism. In addition the eDX first stage regulator has a secondary diaphragm to completely seal-off the main spring cavity. A sealed balanced diaphragm design isolate the main spring cavities internal components from the environment. It also means the eDX is excellent for ice diving (it won't freeze up) or diving in waters filled with contaminants or sediment (it won't corrode). The eDX First Stage Regulator is nitrox ready out of the box to 40%.
