First electronic system:
featuring a high-performance battery and jet-fan. The integrated PIEPS electronics perform a system check on every startup and additional checks while armed. LEDs indicate the system status.
The compact Lithium-Ion battery supports 4 airbag deployments per charge and is air-travel friendly.
Zero additional costs:
Because the system uses jet-fan inflation instead of compressed-gas cylinders, PIEPS JETFORCE can be deployed for training without additional costs.
Jet-fan and motor:
The 200-liter JetForce airbag can be filled in less than 3 seconds thanks to the jet-fan rotor that spins at 60,000 revolutions per minute (by comparison, a hairdryer spins at 4,000-20,000 rpm). Periodic refilling guarantees the bag stays inflated, even in case of small tears or leaks. After 3 minutes, the airbag automatically deflates, reducing pressure on the user. In the case of a full burial, this can create an air pocket that increases the chance of survival.
The JetForce airbag material needs no special packing and folding technique and can be repacked quickly and easily. The bag is made with 315d Cordura® airbag-fiber technology, which offers exeptional strength at very low weight.
- Works even at -30°C: The JetForce-system use a specially designed Lithium-Ion battery, which generates high current even at very cold temperatures (-30°C).
- Long life: 500 charge cycles ensure a long-lifetime, self-discharge for easy storage properties.
- Self-protection: The intelligent Battery Management System (BMS) works with temperature sensors to ensure optimal battery performance as well as protection (e.g. total discharge and charging at low temperature).
The self-diagnosis checks the operational capability of the system on every startup and performs additional checks while armed.
