ARARNIEVO5V2

Arva Evo5 Transceiver

Description

Maximum performance, minimal size. The compact EVO5 is packed with the right technology to make it simple to use during a search. Both everyday and occasional users will love this device.

The EVO5, the latest arrival in our line of transceivers, capitalizes on ARVA’s 35-year expertise to fit in the palm of your hand.

Our R&D team pushed the size/performance ratio past the edge of the envelope to create a device that fits perfectly in your snow pants' pocket. With a 50m search strip width, group check, mark function, and an automatic revert-to-transmit mode, the EVO5 is jam packed with all of the essential functions needed to rescue an avalanche victim. Equipped with a backlit screen and a speaker that emits a precise, modulated beep, this transceiver will efficiently and effectively guide you to the burial zone.

Key Benefits

DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
The design and ergonomics of the device were taken into account from the very beginning of the EVO5's development to make handling simple and intuitive. A 3 position slider, an extra large screen and a central marking button make it easy to operate the device during the search.

EVO5, A MINIATURE DVA
The EVO5 is the smallest DVA ever designed by the ARVA brand. With only 11cm in height and 7cm in width, it is one of the most compact detectors on the market. Its size and light weight of 170g allow it to be forgotten without neglecting performance in an emergency situation.

DIFFERENT CARRYING OPTIONS
The EVO5 will be delivered with a carrying strap and a leash to allow the camera to slide into a pocket while keeping a solid attachment around the waist. A holster for traditional porting will be available as an option.

50M SEARCH BANDWIDTH
Bandwith corresponds to the size the area «scanned» by the searching device. The device’s search area increases as bandwidth increases. This criterion is often used to compare beacon performance.

INTERFERENCE MANAGEMENT
Interference management maximizes the device’s performance in search mode in an environment overrun by electromagnetic interference. To accomplish this, the device in search mode automatically reduces the bandwidth and ignores all other frequencies to focus solely on the beacon being tracked. This function can be deactivated by the user.

AUTOMATIC SWITCH BACK TO EMISSION
During a search, in the event of a secondary avalanche, the return to transmit function allows the device to automatically switch back to transmit mode. This switch is activated either by timer after a certain period of time of user inactivity, or by motion detector after a certain amount of time where the device has not moved.
