iProbe Carbon represents a step forward in avalanche safety equipment and gives the user a tool that can reduce search time in an emergency, especially an incident involving multiple burials. For technology you can depend on when the need arises trust Pieps, producing quality transceivers since 1972.Read more
Before heading into avalanche terrain make sure you have developed the knowledge and proficiency to use an avalanche transceiver efficiently through training and practice. It is vital that you have a shovel and probe to complement your beacon as well as a companion who also has the knowledge, proficiency and equipment that you do to give you the best possible chance of survival should a burial occur.
The iPROBE Carbon, a smart avalanche probe with integrated digital technology, provides a hit and proximity reading of every standard beacon transmitter and enables a short time deactivation of the detected transmitter (in the case of transceivers with iPROBE support).
The first tone is emitted (peep, peep) and the LED illuminates when the tip of the probe is about 2 meters from the transmitting beacon. At a distance of about 50 cm, a continuous acoustic tone (peeeeep) is emitted and the LED remains continuously illuminated.
If the transmitting beacon supports the iPROBE function, the rescuer can deactivate it by pressing the MARK button (probe handle). By pressing the MARK button again for a longer time or by removing the iPROBE tip from the vicinity of the transmitting beacon (>50 cm), the deactivated transmitting beacon is activated once more.
