This standard is applicable to systems used for searching for and/or finding of avalanche hidden persons, this means for direct rescue. These systems are denominated as avalanche beacons and shall comprise a transmitter as well as a receiver part. This standard distinguishes between two types of beacons: - type 1 single frequency beacons (457 kHz) - type 2 double frequency beacons (2,275 kHz and 457 kHz) temporary type, compatible to beacons with frequency 2,275 kHz. It is the purpose of this standard to ensure the practical interoperability of products from different manufacturers and their reliability.
