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.
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
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)
