The PIEPS POWDER BT is the high performance beacon with PIEPS APP-connectivity.
Review of all relevant hardware and software elements as well as showing the current software version.
・PERFECTLY READABLE DISPLAY
in all lighting conditions
due to exact signal processing without any performance losses
・PIEPS INTERFERENCE PROTECTION
The influence of external interferences is eliminated or reduced to a minimum:
Protection in send mode with Auto-Antenna-Switch: If the transmitting antenna is impacted by external interference, the other antenna would take over the transmit function.
Protection in search mode with Signal Verification: Only a verified 457kHz signal is indicated.
The PIEPS POWDER BT can be temporarily deactivated using the smart iPROBE. The receiving beacon automatically receives the next strongest signal.
This function automatically switches the PIEPS POWDER BT from search mode to transmit mode, if the beacon is not moving for a certain time (in case of burial).
Reviews the activity and transmission parameters of the partner device. PIEPS recommends to perform a group check before each tour.
