The Mammut Barryvox is an intermediate level transceiver with 3 antennae and a Flagging (marking) function. It's based on the more advanced Barryvox S and removes the advanced functions leaving a simple to use transceiver but with plenty of clever technology working away behind the scenes.
Any users who want a simple, highly effective transceiver without having to use a menu or worry about optional functions then this is your go-to transceiver.
The Barryvox user-friendly interface has a 2-inch segmented screen which gives a clear display of the search instructions. In normal search mode, it will display the distance, direction, and number of received signals. The search/send/off switch is on the top of the device and features an automatic lock preventing it from being changed from sending by accident.
The mark button is on the front of the device and is easy to operate with gloves on. There are no other buttons on the Barryvox and its single-button operation will appeal to those who value simplicity or a beginner to using transceivers.
Mammut Barryvox Search:
One of the most notable improvements from the old Barryvox element is the larger range that the Barryvox transceivers have, the strip search width is given as 70m which will allow the search area to be covered more quickly than before.
The Mammut Barrryvox can perform 3 different search options such as the following :
Searching the surrounding area to the point where the first clearly audible signal can be detected.
Searching the area starting from the reception of the first signal until the immediate vicinity of the buried victim. In this phase, the signal search pattern is abandoned in order to follow the signals leading to the buried victim.
Searching the area in the immediate vicinity of the victim.
Mammut Barryvox Multiple Burial:
The Barryvox is able to handle multiple burial situations well and has a flagging function which allows you to suppress the signal of a transceiver so you can continue to search whilst others dig up the victim.
Three AAA Alkaline batteries (Do not use rechargeable), Lithium, Oxyride, Powerpix or any other non-alkaline battery
Batter Life, 300 hours in send mode
