Providing high-performance regardless of conditions, the flip-style Ortovox S1+ avalanche transceiver maximizes the potential of being found and finding any others who have fallen in harm’s way. Intuitive displays and clear commands make the S1+ easy to use while an integrated flagging option makes it possible to track multiple positions at once.
A patented “circle” diagram display with arrows and distance indication offer pinpoint accuracy in finding avalanche victims. A backlit display and contrast settings enable you to customize the display. Other display personalizations can be made and there are varied modes for optimizing search effectiveness.
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 60-100 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 S1+ includes a comfort carrier bag and should always be covered by at least one layer of clothing when not in use. Powered by two AAA Alkaline batteries, the S1+ has a transmission capacity of up to 250 hours.
