Hollis owners manual graph shows that the 100LX is not compatible with the DC2 first stage.

Does anyone have experience with this combination or know why Hollis states this??

I've had a Hollis DCX/212 for years and it was super nice even past 200'. But that was when the DCX/212 (as far as I knew, 10 yrs ago) was their best reg set.

Haven't dived it yet. Still building my rig. But I do have the DC2/212 and the 100LX. I want to return it in time if it's a definite no-no! Thanks in advance!!

Is it said to be incompatible? Or just not a supplied combination?

I ask because the specified IP for the DC2 is 143-145, and the specified IP for the 100LX is 144 psi.
That and hose threads are the only determinants of whether the regs will work together...

that only refers to the official configurations that were submitted and passed for EN250 certification testing. no issue pairing the dc2 and LX100, just be aware it won't be officially EN250 certified.
