With the 3 you are in charge! The patented Smart Antenna-Technology with intelligent position recognition automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. You will be found easier. The 3 is equipped with all features of a modern, digital 3-antenna device. The illuminated real-time display tells you the direction, distance and number of victims. The tendency display, combined with the intuitive search acoustics, leaves no doubt when operating in fine search mode. Once located, victims can be removed from the display using the flagging function. The motion-sensor based follow-up avalanche switchover ensures additional safety. Ortovox have also thought about the future: the 3 can be updated and protects the environment with just a single battery.

Be Found Easier

Smart-Antenna Technology
More easily found with the 3 ! The integrated Smart-Antenna Technology analyses 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 S1 to enable secondary avalanche switchover. If the sensor has not detected any motion for 60 or 100 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, Ortovox also equipped the S1 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.

Search Easier

Intuitive Design
Ortovox have reduced the 3 to the bare essentials. With only 2 buttons, it is almost impossible to use incorrectly. Once switched on, the device can be switched from transmit to search mode using the safety switch. Further search instructions are then shown on the large display.

Visual and Acoustic Searching
The circle diagram in the fine search shows you exactly how far away you are to the buried victims and whether you are getting closer to the signal or farther away from it. The lit display is supported by intuitive search acoustics. Higher tones emitted at shorter intervals means you are getting closer to the buried victims. The sophisticated sound sequence clearly signals when buried victims are near.

Flagging Function
The number of people buried is shown in a list on the display of the S1 . As soon as you have found the first one, you can quickly and reliably block out the signal with the flagging button. The buried person is shown as being flagged, and you can continue searching for the others.
