Have peace of mind with an emergency locator transmitter (ELT) by your side. The ME406 is a single-output ELT that's designed to make installation simple. Backed by the support of a 6-year battery life, the ME406 is an ELT you can count on to have your back, should you be faced with an emergency. If you should ever have to activate the ELT, the 406 MHz transmitter sends an encoded signal every 50 seconds to alert search and rescue teams of your location, so they can more easily bring you home.
The Artex 453-6603 ME406 ELT is a single output ELT, utilizing the same RF output and only one coax cable to transmit a 406 MHz emergency signal to the Cospas/Sarsat satellites and a local 121.5 Homing signal. The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits a continuous swept tone of 121.5 MHz. During activation, the 406 MHz transmitter sends an encoded 5-watt signal to the Cospas-Sarsat Satellites every 50 seconds for 440 milliseconds to alert Search and Rescue.
The mounting hardware for the ME406 Series is compatible with all previous models of Artex 406 MHz ELT Products, as well as the ELT-200 Series, ACK, Pointer Model 3000 and Narco ELTs. Current owners of Artex 2-frequency TSO C91a ELTs can re-use the remote switch in the cockpit, as well as the wiring harness from the cockpit to the ELT. This greatly reduces installation costs.
