Apeks Technical - Status First Stage Operation

<< Previous Page

The Status is an electronic unit which gives the diver the option to visually check the condition of the first stage regulator before a dive begins. High pressure air enters through the first stage connection filter as in a conventional Apeks first stage. This exerts enough pressure on the primary diaphragm to compress the large spring and allows the H.P. Valve Spring to close the H.P. Valve, preventing further H.P. air flow. This maintains medium pressure air until the diver inhales.In the Status first stage medium pressure is monitored and assessed by a micro-electronic computer and information is displayed on an L.C.D. screen.An orifice in the Valve Lifter, allows the pressure sensor to detect this medium pressure. Information is transmitted to the electronics, by a newly developed load transmitter, which is protected under the cap in the dry sealed chamber. If the medium pressure falls outside the limits allowed, or usage time between servicing has been exceeded, the electronics displays this in an easy to read format.
