The PIEPS BACKUP is a mini-transmitter (Frequency 457 kHz) that is worn directly on the body in conjunction with your beacon. The PIEPS BACKUP only transmits in an emergency. Therefore PIEPS provides the first 100% solution in case of a secondary avalanche.
? The PIEPS BACKUP 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.
The PIEPS BACKUP detects an emergency (no motion and no transmitting beacon nearby): Only then will the PIEPS BACKUP start to transmit (457khz)!
Only if a rescuer wears an active transmitter, the rescuer is perfectly equipped in case of a secondary avalanche. "
