Overview

Artex's ME406 ACE (Absolute Cost Efficiency) kit is designed to be a direct replacement for ACK ELTs and ACK remote switches. The 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.

Features

  • Automatic fixed emergency locator transmitter
  • Provides single antenna output for both 121.5 and 406 MHz frequencies
  • Worldwide coverage
  • 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
  • Saves time: the included remote switch replaces the previous ACK switch on the instrument panel so that alterations are not needed; a special adapter mounted onto the ME406 ACE ELT receives the plug on the ELT side of the wiring; and the existing wiring harness can be used to connect the remote switch to the ELT
  • Includes install kit, remote switch, mounting tray, ELT, whip antenna, buzzer, module interface, OPS/install manual, coax cable (BNC to BNC) 6ft, flat cable, and extender (for the flat cable)
  • 6-year battery life
