Pieps IProbe One
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
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.
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. iProbe One has a built-in receiver in the tip that can detect any brand of avalanche transceiver; probe emits an audible alert when you're close to the victim. When the tip is within 2m the probe emits "piep, piep" and when it's within 50cm it emits a continuous "piiiiiiiep". If the buried transceiver supports iProbe technology, the transceiver's signal can be temporarily suppressed by the iProbe to make searching for other victims easier. Probe tubes are made of high-quality carbon fiber and aluminum for good strength at a light weight. Centimeter markings help you determine burial depth. Grippy coating ensures you have a good hold on the probe, even when wearing gloves. 1 AA battery (included) powers the Pieps iProbe ONE probe for up to 150 hrs. Includes a storage sack.
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.
