Pieps IProbe One
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Speed up the fine search for buried victims with the Pieps iProbe ONE probe. It works like a standard avalanche probe with the added feature of being able to detect the signal of a buried transceiver.
Compatible with any PIEPS avalanche beacon, the iProbe One 260 revolutionizes avalanche search and rescue by building a low range beacon into the probe tip, widening your strike area while providing optical and acoustic feedback to help pinpoint burials. Especially handy in multiple burial scenarios, the iProbe disables found beacons to help aid in the search for the next victim. And of course, the iProbe 260 also functions as a standard probe, with a collapsible, easy to deploy design, wide-cone tip for penetrating avalanche debris, and added length for Rutschblock tests and other snowpack analysis.
A traditional avalanche probe relies on your senses to detect a buried victim, but the Pieps iProbe One Probe can actually detect the signal of a victim's beacon and emit an alert based on proximity to the beacon, extending your probing range by up to 50cm--whoa. Made of a mixture of aluminum and carbon fiber designed to be rugged and durable like a traditional probe, the iProbe stands up to the same abuse and has been proven to be just as reliable. Working on 1 battery that has 150hrs of life, it offers audio and visual cues that begin at 2m from a victim, and will detect any brand of beacon, although Pieps beacons with iProbe support are designed to work with together to reduce multiple-victim search time. Pack a little extra technology in your pack and seconds spent probing could turn into seconds spent digging.
The Pieps iProbe One is a digital electronic probe with transmitter deactivation function and acoustic target indicator for every standard transceiver. The probe tip has an integrated receiver which locates every avalanche transmitter. Clear optical and acoustic target indicator in the handle while approaching any avalanche transmitter. In the case of multiple burials transceivers with iProbe support can be temporarily deactivated so the next strongest signal is automatically shown on the search transceiver. Made of durable and lightweight carbon fiber.
