XBS, External Breathing System

XBS, External Breathing System


The External Breathing System (XBS) has been designed for use with the Stealth range of mixed gas rebreathers to provide an alternative source of breathing gas in the event of an emergency situation.

The XBS is used in a similar manner as a “lazy shot” to provide a diver station during decompression. The XBS incorporates a quick connect adaptor integrated for use with the Divex Dual Mode Mask (DMM) or the Dual Mode Bite Mouthpiece Assembly (DM BMA). The XBS also has an additional second stage demand valve allowing use with a standard Bite Mouthpiece Assembly (BMA) configuration.

The XBS employs composite 300 bar cylinders and is rated NATO STANAG 2897 Class B for MCM-EOD operations. A gas change over valve is located on the face of the XBS allowing the diver to plug in and change gas according to requirement.
