PIEPS and Black Diamond Equipment Avalanche Transceiver / Beacon Safety Check

Black Diamond has observed a small number of PIEPS and Black Diamond Avalanche Beacons with malfunctioning electronic components that may prevent it from switching between SEND and SEARCH modes. Testing is ongoing, but it is important that they communicate this information promptly and ask that anyone in possession of the following beacons to immediately perform a safety inspection to ensure your beacon is functioning properly.

• PIEPS Micro BT Button

• PIEPS Micro BT Race

• PIEPS Micro BT Sensor

• PIEPS POWDER BT

• PIEPS PRO BT

• PIEPS DSP PRO

• PIEPS DSP SPORT

• BLACK DIAMOND RECON

• BLACK DIAMOND GUIDE

If you have one of these beacons, immediately check and verify that the SEND/SEARCH/BLUETOOTH modes are working properly. If your beacon does not pass the Safety Check, you should retire it immediately and return it to PIEPS / BLACK DIAMOND for service, free-of charge.
