The PIEPS iPROBE II is the electronic probe with an acoustic and visual hit indicator that enables a faster companion rescue.
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
Time saving through automatic sleep-mode of PIEPS beacons with iProbe-support.
Beacons with iProbe-Support: PIEPS PRO BT, PIEPS POWDER BT, PIEPS MICRO BT sensor/button/RACE, PIEPS DSP Pro Ice, DSP Pro, DSP Sport, PIEPS DSP (ab Softwareversion 5.0), PIEPS DSP Tour, PIEPS Freeride
- Special Kevlar Cable Pull System for extra stability and easy extension
- Quick-closing latch for reliable locking and efficient assembly of the probe
- Centimeter scale for reading burial depth and as centimeter measurement for snow profiles
- Compact fixable with elastic closure buckle
- Space saving collapsible
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.
