This user friendly 3+ digital transceiver from Ortovox incorporates Smart Antenna technology utilizing intelligent mobile position recognition technology. This analyses the position of the 3+'s three antennas and automatically identifies the optimal transmission antenna.The circular precise real time display screen clearly indicates the position and distance to the buried victim (also the battery capacity and consumption) with directional arrows enabling you proceed in the right direction. The precision and accuracy of this device efficiently reduces labour time enabling maximum efficiency to locate the buried victim. There is also a large safety switch-back to transmit mode button in case of a follow-up avalanche scenario.The 3+ is also ideal for multiple burials with an overview and number of victims displayed. After retrieving a victim, there is an option to blend out their signal with the pin key (the 3+ then shows that victim as pinned) allowing you to move on to rescue the remaining people.Durable ergonomic rubberized housing safely protects the transceiver from the elements, while the light display and optimized acoustics make searching at night easier.If skiers are caught out by an avalanche, their companions in the vicinity have their work cut out. They have to locate the victims and dig them out as quickly as possible. The chances of survival diminish rapidly after 18 minutes of burial in the snow. Avalanche transceivers are essential items of equipment for anyone going off piste.The Avalanche transceiver can make the difference between life and death. When the tracker shows youâ€™re within 3 metres of the victim, put the beacon to the ground and prepare to use the probe and shovel.
- 3+ Smart Antenna The 3+ has a position sensor, which can analyze the position of the device in the avalanche and switches to the best transmitting antenna. Worst coupling positions are thus eliminated.
- 3+ Fast Find The presentation of the real-time display is limited to the essentials. It displays the distance and direction. Once you are in the refined search area, the displayed circle shows whether you are getting closer to the victim or moving away from him/her. Battery status and number of buried/marked victims appear small.
- 3+ Fine Search In the refined search area, the patented circular display shows you whether you are getting closer to the victim or moving away from him/her in increments of 10 cm. The optimized, distinct search acoustics supports you in the search by pitch of the tone and volume.
