This user friendly 3+ digital transceiver from Ortovox incorporates Smart Antenna technology utilizing intelligent mobile position recognition technology.
This analyses the position of the 3+'s three antennas and automatically identifies the optimal transmission antenna. The circular precise real time display screen clearly indicates the position and distance to the buried victim (also the battery capacity and consumption) with directional arrows enabling you proceed in the right direction.
The precision and accuracy of this device efficiently reduces labour time enabling maximum efficiency to locate the buried victim. There is also a large safety switch-back to transmit mode button in case of a follow-up avalanche scenario.
The 3+ is also ideal for multiple burials with an overview and number of victims displayed. After retrieving a victim, there is an option to blend out their signal with the pin key (the 3+ then shows that victim as pinned) allowing you to move on to rescue the remaining people. Durable ergonomic rubberized housing safely protects the transceiver from the elements, while the light display and optimized acoustics make searching at night easier.
