The Artex 455-5010 C406-2 ELT transmits on all 3 emergency frequencies (121.5/243.0 and 406 MHz.) The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz. It 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.
The C406-2 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 C406-2 is available for use with Artex's low cost whip antennas, rod antenna, or a blade antenna and 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. The C406-2 uses two coax cables to accommodate all three frequencies. The C406-2 ELT is available for fixed wing with a single-directional G-Switch.
Comes with 110-320 Rod Antenna and 345-6196 Switch.
