TECHNOLOGY:

 

ISOTECH TECHNOLOGY: Most devices on the market now have 3 antennae. The 2 antennae work successively, even for primary search. Generally listening on the secondary antenna is less efficient than on the main one, which reduces the search bandwidth which represents the most unfavorable case. The Neo is the first device to have performances as big on the main axe than on the secondary axe. This allows it to have exceptional range in all configurations and to be the first device to display 60 m of search bandwidth.

 

FUNCTION DETAILS:

 

GROUP CHECK: This function allows the group leader to test the correct working conditions of his team mates' equipment. In practice, this helps save time and efficiency to ensure the safety of the people you are taking with you. 

Victim marking: When you are within 3 m of the first victim, you can mark his location "A" so you can continue searching for a second signal. Simple "mark" button for marking victims. Appears as a flag next to the victim icon. The device then switches to locating victim B. Marking is permanent and is not deleted after a few minutes: victim A stays recorded. 

Interference management: Interference management optimises device performances when searching in an area with electromagnetic interference. In order to do this, the search device automatically reduces the search bandwidth to focus on the signal of the specific device, disregarding interference frequencies. This function can be deactivated by the user. 

Automatic emission return: When searching, in the event of another avalanche, the revert-to-transmit function allows the device to be re-transmitted automatically without any user action. The return to transmission is done either by timer, that is after a delay without user action or by motion detector, after a delay without the device moving. These times can be set in the configuration menu. 

 

 


The survival time of a person buried under snow is counted, a study shows that to have more chance of being found the combination of avalanche beacon, shovel and probe is recommended. The estimated clearance time with this equipment is 11 minutes. A person buried for 18 minutes has a 91% chance of survival.
