Product OverviewThe RS-1001 1'st Stage Regulator features a balanced diaphragm system design & upgraded HP poppet assembly for enhanced reliability. This balanced diaphragm system maintains minimum variation in intermediate pressure in relation to changes-in-residual tank pressure. The balanced diaphragm, 1'st stage is inherently environmentally sealed. The benefit of this type of 1'st stage 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 & mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance.
The 1'st stage feature 2 high-flow low-pressure ports (LP) to optimize 2'nd stage performance for easier breathing. The high flow ports are engineered for the smoothest air delivery possible to the primary & octopus 2'nd stages at all tank pressures. The 1'st stage also comes equipped with 2 standard LP ports with 3/8" threads & 2 high pressure port (HP) with 7/16" threads.
The 2'nd stage features an ortho-conscious silicone mouthpiece for comfort & a diver adjustable sensitivity control to deliver air smoothly w/each breath. The surface or dive control allows the user to set the ease of breathing for varying sections of the dive. The surface position decreases likelihood of a free flow & also is recommended for cold water diving. In the dive position the control allows the regulator to power assist the diver as they breathe using a venturi effect. The exhaust valve features a large & flexible design for extremely low exhaust resistance. The 2'nd Stage is a dependable downstream demand valve design. The 2'nd stage comes with a 29" (74cm) LP 3/8" threaded hose. The regulator weighs 35.2 oz. (999 g) w/hose.
The Octopus safe-2'nd has a lightweight & compact composite case design & allows for both left-&-right-hand configuration. The 2'nd stage features a venturi adjustment lever for easier breathing and an ortho-conscious mouthpiece. The Octopus combines a classic downstream valve w/large diaphragm & classic purge button. It's simple & robust construction w/a techno-polymer valve housing offers the utmost in reliability. The Octopus Regulator weighs 7.0 oz. (198 g) & comes w/a 3/8" threaded 39" (100cm) high-visibility yellow low-pressure hose & high visibility yellow cover for easy identification & sharing.
TUSA's 3 Gauge Analog Console has a rugged easy to read pressure gauge that has color coded pressure readout for added safety. The gauge measures pressure from 0 to 5,000 psi. The 0 to 500 psi section is colored in bright red to denote reserve air, the 1,000 to 5,000 psi section is color coded in blue. Pressure gauge is also equipped w/a thermometer measuring temperature from 0½F to 100½F. The gauge is incased in an impact resistant boot w/eyelets for attachment of lanyard or clip. HP hose is 7/16" threaded.
The depth gauge measures depth from 0 to 200' & is also color coded for safety, w/blue color from 0 to 60' & red from 100' to 200'. The 10' depth is also color coded in red for minimum safety stop depth. Gauge is equipped w/a maximum depth indicator that will follow the depth needle to the greatest depth reached on the dive & then will remain there to indicate your maximum depth. This feature is helpful when logging dive information providing key data for repetitive dives.
Trying to navigate w/a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The back-mount compass is liquid filled for a smooth, fast reacting compass heading. Compass is equipped w/both top & side scan reading for gun sight accuracy. The ratcheted rotating bezel has compass headings in 30½ numbered increments & indicator marks for every 10½. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course, & lubber line across the compass face.
TUSA is the first company in the world to incorporate Lumi-Nova light storage dials. This innovation offers several times the brightness of conventional dials, as well as longer luminescence times. The entire face glows bright enough to make it ideal for night diving or diving in low light but contains no radioactive materials.
The Liberator BCD is a durable, wrap-around jacket style BC. The Liberator comes standard w/TUSA's tilt valve inflator. TUSA's Advanced Weight Loading System III (AWLS) provides hassle-free weight loading. The Ultimate Stabilizing Harness will ensure a comfortable & secure diving experience. AAWLS allows diver to insert weights into weight-cartridges & loading them easily into the front of the BC jacket. Weight distribution to the shoulder area, weighted-down feeling that is associated w/weight belts is eliminated. Weight-Cartridges can accommodate from 8 lbs. (3.63 kg) of weight in each cartridge.
The Ultimate Stabilizing Harness (USH) eliminates tank roll & delivers amazing fit. The USH securely holds the air cylinder in place w/optimally placed rails & brings the tank closer to the body increasing tank control while reducing weight.
The RITETITE Buckle, a 2-position cam strap for quick & easy adjustment. While the strap is looped thru-the-buckle, the buckle stays in place w/o needing to be held, allows for more control & stability. Jacket is made from 500 Cordura & 420D nylon material, w/a urethane lamination that has radio frequency (RF) welded seams. Buoyancy control is facilitated w/TUSA Tilt Valve Inflator mechanism. Inflator is equipped w/left shoulder cable activated pull dump valve & includes a 3/8" threaded QD hose. The jacket BCD also has a right shoulder & right rear lower overpressure/relief valves w/pull cords for trimming buoyancy in any position when diving. Storage & attachment of accessories is made easy w/2 zippered pockets & 1-stainless-steel & 5-resin D-rings. The Liberator BCD provides 18 lbs. to 46.1 lbs. (8.2 kg to 20.9 kg) of lift depending on size. The dry weight of the BCD is from 7.1 lbs. (3.2 kg) to 7.7 lbs. (3.5 kg). Package includes owner manuals.
