ARTEX C406-1 Series - Aircraft Spruce Europe
ARTEX C406-1 Series
Single Output 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter
(Type AF ELT) Cospas/Sarsat Approved,
FAA TSO C126 Approved, JTSO-2C126 Approved
The Artex C406-1 is a single output ELT; unlike previous models of Artex 406 MHz ELT’s. All 3 emergency frequencies
(121.5/243.0 and 406 MHz) utilize the same RF output, which requires only 1 coax cable to connect to the new series of
Artex single input antennas. The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on
121.5 and 243.0 MHz. Every 50 seconds for 520 milliseconds (long message protocol) the 406.025 MHz transmitter turns
on and transmits an encoded digital message to the Cospas/Sarsat satellite system. The ELT can be programmed with
the aircraft's 24-bit address as well as latitude/longitude information from the aircraft navigation system when used with
the Artex ELT/NAV Interface (P/N 453-6500). Also available is the Artex C406-1HM, which is equipped with a 6 axis "G"
Switch for helicopter installations. The mounting hardware for the C406-1 Series is compatible with all previous
versions of Artex 406 MHz ELT's.
