A traditional avalanche probe relies on tactile sense your sense of touch to detect a buried victim but the Pieps iProbe One Probe can actually detect the signal of a victims beacon and emit an alert based on proximity to the beacon Built to be rugged and durable just like a traditional probe the iProbe stands up to the same abuse and has been proven just as reliable iProbe will detect any brand of beacon and beacons with iProbe support allow for a few additional features which could potentially reduce multiplevictim search time Pack a little extra technology in your pack and seconds spent probing could turn into seconds spent digging A single AA batterypowered proximity detector gives you both audible and visual confirmations when youve located a transmitting beacon iProbe uses both visual and auditory proximity cues during searchWhen the tip of the iProbe is within two meters of a beacon the LED lights up and the probe emits a peep peep sound and within 50centimeters the intermittent peeps become a continuous peeeeeeepMark button allows you to temporarily turn off a transmitting beacon to go search for other beacons if victim has an iPROBEsupported beacon such as the Pieps DSP or FreerideHitting the mark button a second time or removing the probe from the area causes the iProbesupported beacon to automatically switch back to transmit

Conduct multiple-burial searches with more efficiency by using the Pieps iPROBE, a search probe that allows you to mark the location of buried victims and temporarily deactivate their transmitter signal so that you can continue searching for other victims without signal interference. Light weight and easy to use, this 10-ounce probe searches to a depth of 16 feet and provides intuitive visual and auditory indicators on the handle.

Worlds first electronic avalanche probe. Proven to reduce fine search time by 60%. Receives 457kH signal from any beacon within 2M range. Audible signals indicate you within 50cm of the victim. This is close enough to start digging them out. Save time. When used together with beacons having iProbe support* the rescuer can use the iProbe mark function to suppress the transmitting beacon's signal allowing the next closest victim to be found quickly and easily. The ultimate multiple burial tool. New, longer length option is new for 2010. *Freeride and Pieps DSP have iProbe support built in since fall 2007. Your older DSP's can be updated with iProbe support and other features through our authorized update centers. Call us today for a location.

The Pieps iPROBE Probe provides the missing link during searches for multiple avalanche victims. This probe uses a single AA battery-powered proximity detector to give you both audible and visual confirmations when you've located a transmitting beacon. The iPROBE will detect any brand of beacon, no matter what your friends are using. If the buried person has an iPROBE-supported beacon (such as the Pieps DSP or Freeride), you can actually temporarily turn off the transmitting beacon to go search for other beacons. The reduced interference could save valuable minutes. How does it work' When the tip of the iPROBE comes within two meters of a transmitting beacon, the iPROBE's LED lights up, and it emits a "peep, peep," sound. When the iPROBE is within 50 centimeters, the intermittent peeps become continuous ("peeeeeeep"). If the transmitting beacon has iPROBE support, you can hit a button on the probe to mark the location, turn off the beacon, and search for the next victim using your traditional transceiver and a second probe. Hitting the "mark" button again or removing the probe from the area causes the iPROBE-supporting beacon to turn on again.

Pieps iProbe is the world's first smart avalanche probe. This probe comes integrated with optical and acoustical indication on the handle, allowing you to easily pinpoint avalanche victims. Perfect tool for multiple burials, the iProbe can temporarily deactivate iProbe supporting beacons with the push of a button, allowing searchers to find the next strongest signal. LED illuminates when the tip of the probe is about 2 meters from the transmitting beacon. Continuous acoustic tone is emitted when probe tip is within 50cm of transmitting beacon. iProbe supporting Pieps beacons are deactivate by pushing MARK button on handle. Beacon can be reactivated by pressing button again or moving iProbe tip more than 50 cm from beacon. Note: We offer a firmware upgrade for older Pieps DSP beacons that includes iProbe Support. Probe Length: 2.25 m - 88.5 in. Weight: 10.2 oz
