Emerging Lifesaving Technologies 406 ELT with internal GPS.
Emerging Lifesaving Technologies has presented the first ELT with internal GPS approved for General Aviation. Along with the 406MHz emergency signal, Copas/ Sarsat satellites will read your specific GPS location during a crash. The GPS automatically updates every 15 seconds and upon activation bursts a 5 watt signal within 25 meters every 50 seconds to the Global Satellite System. Search and Rescue will be notified of your location within minutes.
The ELT406GPS mounts with most standard ELT configurations from previous manufacturers. GPS data comes from the internal module in the ELT- 406GPS. There is no need to install expensive interface modules and retrieve GPS information from existing systems. The antenna houses both 406 MHz and GPS passive antenna in a sleek blade configuration. A replaceable 5 year battery pack is easily installed by the owner/operator.
With American Ingenuity and American Engineering, Emerging Lifesaving Technologies is committed to keeping all of their products “Made in the U.S.A”. ***NOT available in Canada yet, awaiting final approval***
Output Power: 5W (440ms/50sec) for 72 hours @ -20C to +50C.
This unit with built in GPS was easy to install. It requires no connection to your avionics system GPS and that makes it very easy to install. This unit sends exact information to the rescuers no guess work with civil air patrol flying around trying to see you. This unit built tough and easy to maintain. My mechanic and I installed it in the 172 in two hours, this included the time to remove the old ELT.
Does this ELT require an aircraft power source?
Per the supplier: No, an aircraft power source is not necessary. What type of wire is recommended for the remote switch assembly installation.
The manufacture recommends an eight conductor wire like our part number 11-09782. What are the requirements for testing the ELT in the US? Can it be accomplished by an A&P without special tools?
The FAA still requires transponder and ELT checks every 2 years. The E.L.T. 406 with GPS does have a quick self test feature making it easy to check without specialized tools. Is this certified by the FAA or any regulatory body?
All ELT's must have a TSO Approval. So, yes the E.L.T. is certified by the FAA. Post Crash, Can this unit be detached from aircraft and used with a portable antenna? Is the USA Unit still acceptable when I fly my US registered experimental certified aircraft in Canada or Mexico?
Per the manual, this unit does not list a compatible portable antenna. This ELT supports an aircraft mounted antenna. Is the E.L.T. 406 with GPS a multiple frequency ELT, i.e., does it transmit on 121.5/243.0, in addition to 406?
The E.L.T. GPS is not equipped with a 121.5/243 MHz transmitter. This broadcast on the 406.037 MHz frequency.
