    What is the max tank pressure the xtx 200 with the fsr first stage can handle.

    depends if it's yoke or DIN. I think they're designed to 4500 ish... why? What are you pumping up that high?

    It is for a din hook up, and just curious. I could not find it in the specs.
    Thanks.

    I think he was more asking the maximum service operating pressure for the XTX200. If he was to take his HP tank up to 3800psi range, is this to much/hard on the regulator?

    The DIN connector is 7 thread 300BAR, so around 4500psi.

    The yolk connector is of course max 232BAR, which is 3442 psi or something close to that. Whatever steel HP tanks tend to be at.
