In the case of an avalanche rescue, time is of the essence and an effective, easy-to-use transceiver can be the difference between life or death. The award-winning Ortovox 3+ delivers pinpoint performance in an intuitive, simple-to-use design. Easy-to-follow displays clearly communicate readings and higher-pitched and faster acoustic sounds make it evident when you are approaching avalanche victims. An integrated flagging option makes it possible to track multiple positions at once.
Equipped with a patented “smart” technology, the transceiver analyzes its position within an avalanche and automatically switches between three digital antennae to select the best transmission to maximize the range of the signal and increase the potential of timely rescue.
A motion sensor enables a switchover in the case of a secondary avalanche that leaves a would-be rescuer in need of aid. If the sensor has not detected any motion for 120 seconds during the search, it automatically switches back to transmit mode.
To maximize protection, Ortovox has also incorporated a Recco reflector that helps professional rescuers find victims even faster. Recco technology is used by more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams around the world.
The Ortovox 3+ includes a comfort carrier bag and should always be covered by at least one layer of clothing when not in use. Powered by a single AA battery, the 3+ has a transmission capacity of up to 250 hours.
