The Auto Air - AP100 - combines in one compact unit the AP Valve emergency jacket breathing facility, a direct feed power inflator and an alternate air source Octopus bailout - offering EN250 (regulator standard) breathing performance
In an emergency the AP100 is simplicity itself - just put it in your mouth and breathe! Unlike other make octoinflators you do not have to find and press any buttons. The Auto Air will draw air from wherever it can: either from your main cylinder if there is gas remaining (octopus mode) or from the bladder of the BCD itself (jacket-breathing mode). In the jacket-breathing mode the procedure is exactly the same as for the original AP200 AP Valve (outlined on this site).
In octopus mode the Auto Air is a high performance bailout regulator with the advantage that it sits on your chest area, visible and always-within-reach when you need it in an emergency.
All AP inflators are Low/Medium pressure - 14 bar Max
