Avalanche beacon search field + training center

Since winter 2014/15 we have an avalanche beacon search field  in Praxmar. In cooperation with Girsberger Elektronik AG an ATC Avalanche Training Center originated.

The ATC Avalanche Training Center is a stationary system for training transceiver and probe search.  
The system has been proven for a long time and has been overhauled completely in the year 2015. Some innovative solutions provided decisive advantages to the users and to the operators. The system can simulate from five to sixteen transceivers. The transmitters that are buried in the search area emit signals that are exactly equal to the signals from real avalanche transceivers. At the control unit, the remotely controlled transmitters can be selected at random (standard mode) or individually (expert mode). This allows for training simple as well as complex (multiple burials) burial situations. The transmitters will provide automatic feedback upon a probe hit. A probe hit on the probing surface of a transmitter is indicated at the control unit and signaled acoustically. The search times for every transmitter are also indicated. The control unit also incorporates a counter for the number of exercises that can be read out at any time. The entire system is equipped with standard batteries for autonomous operation throughout a winter season. No mains supply required. In order to save precious energy, the system automatically enters a sleep mode when not used for some time. There is no need to turn the system off manually.
