The ZOOM+ combines the simplest handling with the latest technology and the most advanced design. Reduced to two functional buttons, the ZOOM+ concentrates on intuitive usability. The focus on the clearly designed LED-display is on the on / off switches and the switch between transmitting and searching. Distances, directional arrows and information about several avalanche victims guide you in the fastest way to the refined search area, with the intuitive search acoustics making victims easier to locate. Equipped with the patented SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY, avalanche victims are found much better with the ZOOM+. The device analyzes its position in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transimission antenna. The latest digital 3-antenna technology is taken for granted at ORTOVOX just as much as the aut omatic switch over in case of a follow-up avalanche.
BE FOUND EASIER
More easily found with the ZOOM+! The integrated SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY analyzes the position of the antennas in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. The result: Almost double the range in the worst coupling position, regardless of the beacon used for searching.
SECONDARY AVALANCHE SWITCHOVER
We have added a motion sensor to the ZOOM+ to enable secondary avalanche switchover. If the sensor has not detected any motion for 120 seconds during the search, it automatically switches back to transmit mode. Thus rescuers can also be found if there has been a secondary avalanche.
RECCO REFLECTOR INSIDE
For maximum protection, we've also equipped the ZOOM+ with a Recco reflector. Recco helps professional rescuers find victims buried in the snow even faster. This offers an additional possibility of being found quickly. The backup technology is used by more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams around the world.
We've slimmed down the ZOOM+ to ist most important elements. With only two buttons, faulty operation is virtually impossible. Once switched on, the user can switch between sending and searching modes using the safety switch. Further search instructions are then displayed on the large LED. A soft rubber ring around the outside of the device ensures easy handling and provides additional protection. To prevent loss, we've given the ZOOM+ an elastic hand loop and practical carrying case.
VISUAL + ACOUSTIC SEARCH
The ZOOM+ focuses the person searching on the large display in the middle of the device. LEDs are used to show the distance to the victim, the direction using arrows and if there is more than one victim. Large LEDs are easy to read especially in poor visibility conditions and at night. The visual search mode is supported by intuitive search ac oustics. Higher and fast sounds tell you that you are approaching the avalanche victim. The sophisticated sound sequence clearly signals when buried victims are near.
Beast Saw Shovel:
Aggressive shovel with hybrid grip and optimal power transmission in a packable size. The pack-friendly blade has high side walls and a robust center ridge, giving it outstanding rigidity. The cutting edge is sharpened and the upper edge of the blade has non-slip ridges for use with boots. The grip permits a wide range of gripping positions for both right and left-handed users, and has a saw for cutting wood, snow, or for building an igloo or snow profile. The telescopic, rigid, oval-shaped shaft ensures excellent ergonomics and houses a saw. Rubber coating on the lower section maximizes power transmission. The quick-lock eases assembly of shaft and blade.
240 Econo Probe
A rookie’s probe with quick-lock assembly system: the ALU 240 is reduced to the essentials. The quick-lock assembly system allows for quick and simple set up. It is therefore ready for use in just seconds, and can be collapsed and folded just as quickly. The tension can be set by simply turning the optimized adjusting screw. The large probe tip, which has a significantly larger diameter compared to the probe elements, ensures improved penetration. The low weight of just 200g is achieved by using aluminum with a diameter of 11mm.
As with all our probes, the ALU 240 features easy-to-read depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and an orange bottom segment to optimally adapt the shoveling strategy.
