The PIEPS iPROBE II is the electronic probe with an acoustic and visual hit indicator that enables a faster companion rescue.


Auto-Switch on/off

The iPROBE II is automatically switched on when deployed and tensioned and automatically switched off when tension is removed.


Optical & Acoustic Hit-Indicator

to every transmitting beacon (according to standard EN300718).        
Probe tip with integrated receiver locates every avalanche transmitter 


Multiple burials       

Time saving through automatic sleep-mode of PIEPS beacons with iProbe-support.

When probing with the PIEPS iPROBE a continuous signal & a steady light indicate a "hit".
Even if the buried person isn't struck with the probe, this is the starting signal for digging! You save time at companion rescue!


60% time saving at pinpointing & probing! 

The search time is reduced significantly by using the PIEPS iPROBE in pinpointing!
2/3 of the entire search time from the initial signal is spent for fine search and pinpointing.
