The Pieps Micro is a particularly space-saving and lightweight beacon which provides everything you need in terms of features and functions! It can be operated like the bigger ones and is especially designed for ambitious touring where you need to be quick and have as little weight as possible on you on steep terrain but it can also be used for classic skiing in the backcountry!
Whats special about it is that the three-antenna device supports Bluetooth. That way its possible to install updates with ease and to adjust the device individually via your smartphone, tablet or PC using apps! The most recent software versions as well as the hardware can be checked by running tests at all times to ensure that it works properly. You should also do a group check before every tour.
Whats also innovative is that the antennas adapt automatically. If the transmitting antenna is interfered with by other device or metal the Micro switches to the other antenna automatically. In addition to that the device switches from search to transmitting mode by itself after a short time when there are burials.
In case of a multiple burial the Micro is one of the best when it comes to functions. It increases the chance of finding multiple buried people due to the flag function and supports the iProbe. Since the beacon automatically searches for the strongest signal, the flagging of the first buried person enables the further search for the next closest and strongest signal. As soon as the position is localized you can start digging while the signal is deactivated by pushing the flagging button and the beacon starts localizing another signal. With the electronic iProbe by Pieps the strongest signal is also deactivated in order to keep searching as soon as the probe hits some obstacle.
In spite of its compact size the Pieps Micro provides everything you need and comes with practical safety functions for reliable use in case of emergency. Leash, pocket, shoulder strap and battery are included in delivery.
