With new, powerful 5.0 software and improved functionality, the Pieps DSP avalanche transceiver improves search speed, effectiveness and precision. Three antenna system pinpoints the location of burials within a 50m range regardless of antenna orientation and burial depth. Digital Signal Processing DSP technology displays transmitting units as stick figures on an easy-to-view LCD screen. When signals are detected, the approximate distance and direction to the burials are displayed-simply follow the arrows to reach a burial. During multiple burial scenarios, the DSP separates the multiple signals and clearly displays the number of buried victims. Upon locating the position of the first victim, the searcher can mark and mask the found signal and immediately begin searching for other burials. Smart Transmitter works while buried by receiving signals of other burials, synchronizing them, and then transmitting a signal without any overlap. Eliminating signal overlap allows the searcher to quickly interpret the audible and visual information with increased accuracy and less confusion. Pieps DSP can measure frequency deviation of all transceivers, a great pre-ski tour test to conduct. Transceivers that deviate significantly from standard 457 kHz frequency can be difficult to locate because the signal is not detected at full strength. Knowing the level of deviation present in a transceiver allows a party to thoroughly assess transceiver operation prior to heading out. Improved scan function quickly narrows the field into three distinct search ranges and returns an overview of all buried devices within each range. Updated buttons are now easier to use than previous versions while wearing gloves. Adjustable, nylon harness with pouch keeps the unit secure and accessible. Compatible with all beacons operating on the 457 kHz frequency. Operates on three AAA batteries, included.
