ACR/Artex is the leading development center for emergency beacons that are designed with one purpose in mind: Saving Lives.
Through their combined technology expertise in the marine, aviation, outdoor and military markets, ACR/Artex designs and manufactures cutting edge rescue beacons and survival gear for boaters, pilots, hunters, hikers and combat troops, not to mention many of the leading boat builders and aircraft manufacturers in the industry.
The ELT 345 boasts an industry low price for an ELT providing the same quality and performance on which the ARTEX brand was built. GPS data is embedded within the first emergency transmission and provides Search and Rescue personnel with the aircraft location, within 100 meters, in less than a minute.
The ARTEX ELT 1000 is a value-priced upgrade to standard 121.5 MHz transmitters, which are no longer monitored by the Cospas-Sarsat system. The 406 MHz transmitter produces a much more accurate position, typically 3 kilometers as compared with 15 to 20 kilometers for 121.5 MHz transmitters.
The ME406 is designed specifically for the private pilot in mind. The mechanical footprint is compatible with all Artex and some other ELT manufacturers products footprints. The ME406 features single antenna output feeding a wire whip or a rod antenna depending on the aircraft speed.
The Artex ME406 ACE (Absolute Cost Efficiency), a single output ELT, utilizes the same RF output and only one coax cable, connecting to the new series of Artex single input antennas to transmit 121.5 and 406 MHz emergency signals to the Cospas/Sarsat satellites.
