Unofficial answer to "Identical or Not"

@SidTheKing If it is not the same SMC part number, then it is not identical. The SMC fitting is available from a variety of sources, for example, MSC has them here: http://www.mscdirect.com/product/details/51433498?rItem=51433498

Zoro has them at a good price as well (and free shipping over $50): https://www.zoro.com/smc-union-tee-532-in-tubextube-kq2t03-00a/i/G5047777/

Robotics is very concerned with safety, especially with pneumatics, which is why “identical” is required in this case, even if the alternate is fully functional. It makes the inspectors job easier, too.

Thank you

Robot Mesh has all the VEX-legal pneumatics parts on one handy page: http://www.robotmesh.com/vex-robotics/pneumatics This will make your life easier when trying to figure out which part is legal.
