The Artex 455-5044 G406-4 ELT transmits on all 3 emergency frequencies (121.5/243.0 and 406 MHz). The system was designed for use with the general aviation market in mind. The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz The G406-4 also transmits a 406 MHz encoded digital message to the Cospas/Sarsat satellite system, which allows for rapid identification and reduces Search and Rescue response time.
Model: G406-4 Antenna Options Available: Rod 110-320
The G406-4 has been tested to meet the rigorous requirements of TSO C126 including 500 G shock, 1000 pound crush as well as flame and vibration tests. The G406-4 is available for use with Artex's low cost whip antennas or a sturdy fiberglass rod antenna. The G406-4 may be interfaced with the optional Artex ELT/NAV Interface enabling latitude and longitude data to be transmitted as part of the 406 MHz message.
