Diving in cold water requires special equipment and techniques. We strongly recommend you obtain appropriate levels of training from a recognized training agency before diving in cold waters. If the equipment will be used in cold water (temperatures lower than 10°C (50°F)), it will be necessary to use a regulator suited for such temperatures. Halcyon regulators are not medical devices nor intended for medical use. They must not be used to supply treatment oxygen in any medical emergency. CE CERTIFICATION AND SCUBA DEFINITIONS AND LIMITS All Halcyon regulators described in this manual have obtained...

The SCUBA unit can be comprised of separate components such as: cylinder(s), regulator(s), and submersible pressure gauge. The Halcyon regulators described in this manual can be used with SCUBA components units certified according to directive 89/686/EEC and EN250: 2000. The air contained in the cylinder must comply with the requirements for breathable air defined by EN12021. The maximum operating depth is 50 meters (164 ft.) however divers must conform to the limits set by local regulations in force at the diving location. REGULATOR SYSTEMS A regulator system is required to reduce the pressure...

All Halcyon regulators can be identified via a serial number. The number is printed on the housing of the second stage and on the metal body of the first stage. Halcyon offers a lifetime warranty to the original owner of all Halcyon regulators. This warranty covers material and manufacturing defects (with the exception of consumable materials such as O-rings, seats, filter, mouthpiece, and low-pressure hoses). In order to maintain this warranty, it is mandatory to perform annual service on the regulator by an Authorized Halcyon Dealer service facility and maintain proof of service records. For...

Never connect a low-pressure hose to a high-pressure port. These connection threads are different sizes and are not compatible. Do not use adapters of any kind to connect low-pressure devices to high-pressure ports. Doing so could cause serious damage to both the user and equipment. Post Dive Close the cylinder valve and drain the regulator system by pushing on the purge button of each second stage. After the system has been depressurized, disconnect the first stage regulator from the valve. All first stage inlets must be closed with the provided protective caps to avoid the entry of debris, dirt,...

The presence of moisture in the cylinder will cause corrosion of the cylinder and it may cause freezing and subsequent malfunction of the regulator during dives carried out in cold water temperatures (lower than 10°C(50°F)). Cylinders must only be fi Ned with atmospheric compressed air, according to the EN12021 norm. Other gases must comply with the appropriate governing regulations. For example, the use of nitrox in Europe is regulated by EN13949 and EN144-3. Cylinders must be transported according to local rules provided for the transport of dangerous goods. Cylinder use is subjected to the...

Freeze Resistant Piston Design Halcyon piston regulators are designed with a special heat-retaining cold water piston, featuring a Teflon coated spring to aid in antifreeze protection. These features aid in heat retention from the cooling affects of a gas pressure drop. Rotating Swivel on Piston Configuration Allows optimal hose positioningto reduce jaw fatigue. This feature allows all inter-stage pressure hoses attached with the swivel to rotate in the best possible position for the diver. Balanced Diaphragm Balanced diaphragm first stages isolate the inner mechanism from the surrounding water....

Halcyon Second Stage Features Balanced System By using a balanced first stage design, Halcyon is able to use a much lighter spring, decreasing the inhalation resistance and providing a smoother breathing second stage. Diver Adjustable Inhalation Resistance Control Halcyon adjustable second stages have an external control knob acting directly on the springtension (see Img. 1, point 9 on p. 5). This adjustment allows the diver to adjust the inhalation resistance in order to adapt it to the needs of the dive conditions. Adjusting the control knob (clockwise rotation) causes an increase in inhalation...

Comparison of Regulator Features The following tables summarize the specific features of Halcyon first and second stages. REGULATOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE Regulators are life-support devices and should be maintained properly. To keep your regulators in top condition, it is important to have a routine of regular care and maintenance. After every dive (salt or fresh water), rinse the regulator with fresh water. This is also important after diving in chlorinated water (such as a pool). It is important to keep water from entering the system while rinsing them. To avoid getting water inside the regulator...

Regulator Storage Guidelines • Prior to storage, engage the anti-set device by slightly depressing and turning the purge button. Only on the Halo second stage (see Image 7). • On second stage regulators equipped with an inhalation assistance knob, unscrew the adjustment knob fully. • Confirm that the protective cap, on the first stage's high pressure inlet, is • Soakthe second stage mouthpiece in a disinfecting solution then rinse thoroughly and completely remove the disinfectant before storage. Choose a mild disinfectant to avoid damaging the mouthpiece. • Be sure your regulators are completely...
