Artex's ME406 is a single-output ELT that transmits a 406 MHz emergency signal to the Cospas/Sarsat satellites and a local 121.5 homing signal - all using the same RF output and one coax cable. In the event of a crash, the ELT automatically activates and proceeds to transmit a continuous swept tone of 121.5 MHz. As the ELT activates, the 406 MHz transmitter sends an encoded 5-watt signal to the Cospas Sarsat system every 50 seconds for 440 milliseconds to alert Search and Rescue.
Automatic fixed emergency locator transmitter
Provides single antenna output for both 121.5 and 406 MHz frequencies
Mounting hardware is compatible with all previous models of the Artex 406 MHz ELT products as well as the ELT200 series, ACK Pointer Model 3000, and Narco ELTs
