 FEATURES of the Ortovox Zoom Avalanche Transceiver Distances, directional arrows and information about several avalanche victims guide you in the fastest way to the refined search area Intuitive search acoustics making victims easier to locate Equipped with the patented Smart Antenna Technology Analyzes its position in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transimission antenna Just two buttons make operating errors practically impossible Once switched on, it is possible to switch between transmission and search mode using the safety switchover button Subsequent search instructions are given on the large LED-display An all-round soft rubber ring guarantees easy handling and additional protection We have secured the Zoom from being lost with an elastic hand strap and a comfortable bag 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 acoustics Higher and fast sounds tell you that you are approaching the avalanche victim The integrated Smart Antenna Technology analyzes the position of the antennas in the avalanche Automatically switches to the best transmission antenna Almost double the range in the worst coupling position The patented Smart Antenna Technology is compatible with all avalanche transceivers Equipped with the latest, digital 3-antenna technology and with a motion sensor Required for switching over in case of a follow-up avalanche Rescuers are thereby protected from follow-up avalanches at all times Complete electronics are checked when it is turned on (self test) and constantly monitored while in use The SPECS of the Ortovox Zoom Avalanche Transceiver Receive Function: Digital No. of Antennas: 3 Microprocessor control: Yes Safety functions: Patented Smart-Antenna Technology? yes, with display on screen Maximum range / search strip width 40
