With a smart transmitter that auto-adjusts the sending antenna to give searching beacons the best signal, a huge 60-meter circular range, and "mark function" for multiple burial scenarios, the PIEPS Powder BT Avalanche Beacon has all the cutting-edge features backcountry riders need. Designed for backcountry snowmobilers who regularly venture into serious terrain, the PIEPS Powder BT Avalanche Beacon is packed with features. In addition to its massive 60-meter circular range and 60-meter search strip, the Powder BT features an innovative smart transmitter that recognizes other buried devices and auto-adjusts its signal to aid in more accurate recovery. Throw in a self-check function for always-accurate antennas and Digital Signal Processing to account for wayward beacon signals, and the Powder BT's as reliable as it is capable. The included harness-style carrying pouch provides comfortable, streamlined storage and fast removal for beacon practice and emergency response.

PIEPS INTERFERENCE PROTECTION
The influence of external interferences is eliminated or reduced to a minimum:
Protection in send mode with Auto-Antenna-Switch: If the transmitting antenna is impacted by external interference, the other antenna would take over the transmit function.
Protection in search mode with Signal Verification: Only a verified 457kHz signal is indicated.
The PIEPS POWDER BT can be temporarily deactivated using the smart iPROBE. The receiving beacon automatically receives the next strongest signal.
This function automatically switches the PIEPS POWDER BT from search mode to transmit mode, if the beacon is not moving for a certain time (in case of burial).

SECURE SLIDER SWITCH MECHANISM
The switching from one position to another (OFF-SEND-SEARCH) is only possible with a secure 2-hand-activity. The two operating elements lock button (1) and slider (2) have to be forced at the same time and in different directions -only then a switching of the positions is possible.
