Regulator:

Cage Code:

The cage code for identifying KMDSI products for U.S. government purposes is 58366.

CR Standards:

These helmets meet or exceed all standards established by Dive Lab of Panama City, Florida, and are CR (Commercially Rated) marked.

Note

The minimum operating temperature recommended for this helmet is 34 °F (1 °C), without the use of the water shroud P/N 525-100 and hot water.

Without a hot water shroud, the diver may be subject to hypothermia due to cold gas inspiration temperatures.

NOTE: Usually the greatest danger of demand regulator icing will be encountered on deck when the surrounding air temperature is less than 32 °F (0 °C). This effect is primarily due to the refrigeration effect of breathing air pressure reduction, and the addition of moisture from the diver’s exhalation coming in contact with the topside air temperature.
