The PIEPS BACKUP can be located with every standard beacon on the market
Active search operations are never influenced
The PIEPS BACKUP may only be used in combination with an avalanche transceiver
Only if a rescuer wears an active transmitter like the Backup is the rescuer perfectly equipped in case of a secondary avalanche, which may knock the beacon out of their hands.
Carrying recommendation if PIEPS BACKUP and PIEPS TX600 are used together:
If the PIEPS BACKUP and the PIEPS TX600 are used together*, a minimum distance of 50 cm between the devices should be kept, to avoid mutual impact.
A rescuer carries a PIEPS BACKUP as protection in case of a secondary avalanche and also uses a PIEPS TX600 as a material transmitter in his backpack. To avoid a mutual impact, PIEPS recommends wearing the PIEPS BACKUP in a closed trouser pocket and the PIEPS TX600 in the lid pocket of the backpack to guarantee a minimum distance of 50 cm between these two devices.
Please read all instructions and familiarize yourself with this device's operation and limitations before you go into the backcountry. Better yet, take a professional course on avalanche safety; your friends' lives may depend on it!
