You´re in control of every situation with the 3+ from Ortovox. The patented SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY with the intelligent localization automatically searches the best transmitting antenna. You´re going to be rescued faster and better, no compromises are made. The 3+ has all features of a modern, digital 3-antenna-device. The illuminated real-time display tells you the movement direction, distance and number of the avalanche-buried people. The patented circular display combined with the intuitive search acoustics leave no doubt when operatin in fine search mode. Once located, victims of avalanches can be removed from the display using the flaggin function. The motion-sensor-based follow-up avalanche switchover ensures additional safety. Also, we´re thinkig about being ecological and the future aswell: the 3+ can be updated and protects the environment with just a single battery.
The Smart-Antenna-Technology improves your own safety, it has a signal seperation with pinning function.
For maximum protection we´ve also equipped the 3+ with a Recco reflector. Recco helps professional rescuers find avalanche victims buried in the snow even faster. The backup technology is used by more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams all around the world.
The circular display lets you focus on the essentials: the distance and the relative position of a victim. Always align the device to the arrow, the solid arrow and the central distance value keep you on track.
The patented circular display shows you whether you are getting closer to the signal or moving away from it at a glance. With the precise distance value you can determine the distance to the buried victim very effectively and limit the are to be probed.
+ The 3+ allows you to maintain an overview even with multiple burials. The number of the avalanche victims is shown in the display. As soon as you have found the first one you can blend out their signal with the pin key. The victim is displayed as pinned and you can immediately continue with your search.
Development is an ongoing process. To gurantee you that you can always profit from the latest improvements and insights, Ortovox made the 3+ ready for updates. So you can always make sure that it´s up to date.
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
