High-end beacon with animated instructions.

Digital/analog combo device with three antennas.

The new Barryvox® S has a large receiving bandwidth and an effective search strip width of 70 meters. It offers users a large, simple interface and intuitive operation. The Smart Search function provides clear instructions thanks to a simple operating concept and quick, precise searching. The Barryvox® S includes the Rescue SEND function to protect non-searching rescuers. In the event of a secondary avalanche, the device automatically switches to SEND in order to locate buried rescuers. The Barryvox® S is also equipped with a Smart Search function, which interacts with the actions of searching rescuers.

  • Buried subjects can be selected from a list, marked (MARK) and unmarked (UNMARK)
  • Automatic switching from send to search (Auto Revert): if a rescuer does not move for 4 minutes, we assume a secondary avalanche and the device switches to SEND mode (motion-sensor controlled)
  • Rescue SEND: Protective function for non-searching rescuers. In the event of a secondary avalanche it automatically switches to SEND to allow the rescuer to be located
  • Auto guidance: device continues to guide the rescuer to the buried subject in the event of signal failures or overlaps

1. What is the purpose of the additional communication channel called W-Link in the Barryvox avalanche transceiver?

The additional communication channel, W-Link, in the Barryvox avalanche transceiver serves the purpose of enabling quick and reliable recognition of other avalanche transceivers that also transmit W-Link information during a search.


2. What is the difference between the US and the EU versions?

Varying regulations in different countries prevent the use of a single international frequency for this purpose. For this reason, we offer two different preconfigured versions of the devices. One for the European region (EU version) and the other for North America and Oceania (US version).


The only difference between the two versions is the preconfigured W-Link frequency. This does not affect the standard signal of the avalanche transceiver, and the devices are 100% compatible with other avalanche transceivers and which each other.


3. How can I change the W-Link frequency of a Barryvox® S or Barryvox®?

Please note that the user settings in the Barryvox S only allow switching between the assigned region and OFF in order to travel legally in another region. The settings on the Barryvox are fixed and any change must be performed at a Service Center.


4. What are the different W-Link regions and their corresponding colors in the Barryvox device?

  • W-Link region A: Europe and neighboring countries, represented by the color light gray.
  • W-Link region B: US, Canadian, New Zealand, and Australian version, represented by the color dark gray.
  • Countries without W-Link: represented by the color black.
  • Countries with an unknown regional division: represented by the color white.

5. Can the user change the frequency band in the Barryvox device?

No, the frequency provisions of the Barryvox device do not allow the user to change the frequency band. To take his or her Barryvox on a trip to a different region, the user can switch the W-Link off and then switch it back on again on returning home.


6. Does the W-Link region affect the signal used in the search for buried subjects in the Barryvox device?

No, the W-Link region has no effect on the signal used in the search for buried subjects. Searches are still possible between devices from all regions.


7. What happens if the W-Link is switched off in the Barryvox device?

If the W-Link is switched off in the Barryvox device, it will not be possible to transmit or receive vital data.
