The Pieps Backpack is a mini-transmitter that is worn directly on the body in conjunction with your beacon. The Pieps Backup Pieps Backup Mini-Transmitter only transmits in an emergency. Therefore Pieps provides the first 100% solution in case of a secondary avalanche.
The Pieps Backup detects an emergency (“no motion“ and “ no transmitting beacon nearby“): Only then the Pieps Backup will start to transmit (457khz)!
The Pieps Backup Pieps Backup Mini-Transmitter can be combined with every standard beacon.
Active search operations are never influenced.
The Pieps Backup may only be used in combination with an avalanche transceiver.
Only if a rescuer wears an active transmitter, the rescuer is perfectly equipped in case of a secondary avalanche.
If the PIEPS BACKUP and the PIEPS TX600 are used together, a minimum distance of 50 cm between the devices should be kept, to avoid mutual impact.
Example: A rescuer carries a PIEPS BACKUP as protection in case of a secondary avalanche and contemporary uses a PIEPS TX600 as a material transmitter in his backpack. To avoid a mutual impact, PIEPS recommends wearing the PIEPS BACKUP in a closed trouser pocket and the PIEPS TX600 in the lid pocket of the backpack to guarantee a minimum distance of 50 cm between these two devices.
