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.
In emergency situations speed is of the essence. That’s why we have made our 240cm-long aluminum probe even more efficient.
Thanks to the optimized PFA system, the ALU 240 PFA is now MORE COMPACT while also offering better handling. The quick-assembly strap makes immediate opening and assembly possible in one motion. In order to determine burial depth and select an optimized shoveling strategy, all our probes have highly legible DEPTH MARKERS and a clear 1 METER MARKER. The bottommost segment in neon orange provides visual notification of the proximity of the buried person during shoveling. The ALU 240 PFA’s new and improved RUBBERIZED GRIP also ensures safe, ice-free handling in all conditions.
That’s what it’s about. In every detail. We develop high-grade specialized probes for the widest range of needs and user groups. The pursuit of PRECISION and SPEED is our goal. Because these can save lives in an EMERGENCY. We deal with detail-focused solutions that make rescues even more intuitive and, together with an avalanche transceiver and shovel, lead us more quickly to the buried person.
PFA QUICK-ASSEMBLY SYSTEM 2.0
The successor to our oft-copied quick-assembly system is even SLIMMER and MORE COMPACT, while still offering the same proven smooth clamping performance. Thanks to the NEW QUICK-ASSEMBLY STRAP, the probe can be assembled straight out of the cover. It can be collapsed by pressing the system cap with your thumb. ERGONOMIC GRIP The thin and light rubber coating provides the perfect grip for quickly assembling the probe.
PROBES VISUAL GUIDE SYSTEM
The intuitive visual guide system provides you with quick and clear information about the victim‘s depth at all times. You can perfectly ADAPT YOUR SHOVELING STRATEGY and save important time thanks to the clear 1m marker, CONTRASTING DEPTH SCALE and COLORFUL END SEGMENTS. The bottommost segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.
The quick-assembly strap makes immediate OPENING AND ASSEMBLY possible IN ONE MOTION, without first having to take the probe out of its cover.
LARGE PROBE TIP
The significantly larger diameter of the probe tip compared to the probe elements ensures improved penetration.
