When an emergency happens, rely on the same brand that leading aircraft manufacturers trust for first-class quality, superior technology,
and outstanding customer service. The new ARTEX ELT 345 is built to the industry’s most stringent quality management standards to ensure
the ELT works the first time, every time. The ARTEX ELT 345 transmits on 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz frequencies while providing positon
accuracy thanks to the built-in GPS navigational interface. 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 ELT 345 boasts an industry low price
for an ELT providing the same quality and performance on which the ARTEX brand was built.
How the ARTEX ELT 345 Works
The ARTEX ELT 345 can be activated manually (via cockpit remote switch or ELT switch) or automatically (the G-Switch senses a 2.3G or
greater impact), and alerts the closest Search and Rescue agency of your emergency. The 406 MHz signal, containing your GPS coordinates,
is transmitted to the Cospas-Sarsat satellites and relayed to the Mission Control Center where it is immediately routed to the nearest
Search and Rescue agency. Your beacon’s registration will tell first responders who you are and the beacon itself lets them know where you
are to within 100 meters. Finally, the local 121.5 MHz homing signal assists Search and Rescue forces to identify your exact location.
Ease of Installation
The ARTEX ELT 345 provides a quick-and-easy retrofit opportunity with flexible installation options such as a two-wire remote switch that
does not require any aircraft power. Because it is a single output ELT, the ELT 345 utilizes the same RF output and only one coax cable to
transmit both 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz signals. The built-in navigational interface does not require aircraft power to operate which greatly
reduces the cost of installation. The stainless steel mounting bracket has a multiple-hole pattern configuration which makes the
replacement of legacy ARTEX ELTs or old ACK, Kannad and AmeriKing ELTs quick and easy.
Pair the ELT 345 with ARTEX’s exclusive online satellite confirmation testing system, 406Test.com, and get real-time beacon testing
results, from the same satellites used by Search and Rescue, to ensure your ELT system is functioning properly. There is a reason that
ARTEX ELTs are the choice of more aircraft manufacturers than any other; they trust ARTEX to build the highest quality products knowing
they are used to save lives.
