Product description
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.

Question from Friedrich | Schorndorf

Kann ich mit dem Backup Suchen üben, wenn ich ein LVS habe?

Hallo Friedrich,

grundsätzlich kannst Du dies machen. Sobald das Backup keine Bewegung feststellt und kein aktiv sendendes LVS Gerät in der Nähe ist, sendet es auf der Frequenz 457 kHz ein Signal. Damit kannst Du es mit Deinem LVS Gerät im Suchmodus aufsuchen. Du solltest aber das Gelände behutsam auswählen, da Du in dieser Situation selbst nicht geortet werden könntest.

In erster Linie ist das Backup natürlich zur Schaffung von Redundanz gedacht.

Servus, Daniel

Für mich wäre entscheidend, das Backup zum Üben, also auch im Sommer, im Winter vor der Hütte etc. einzusetzen, um im Ernstfall routiniert und schnell zu suchen.

Hallo Friedrich,

Du kannst das Pieps Backup in dem von Dir beschriebenen Fall auch zur Übung verwenden.

Mach's gut, Daniel
