The MAMMUT Barryvox is a revolutionary Swiss development in the sector of locator devices for avalanche victims. This new generation of devices combines digital and analogue search technology for the very first time. While the analogue search mode allows a very wide search range, the digital mode with its direction and distance indicator greatly facilitates and speeds up medium and close-range searches for avalanche victims.
With its sensational weight of only 170 g (incl. batteries) the MAMMUT Barryvox is particularly compact and sturdy. Its operation is simple and easy to understand, with automatic self-test, a clearly marked ON/OFF switch and constant monitoring of the battery voltage. The software is designed in such a way that in a panic situation the person buried under an avalanche can be located quickly.
