The Artex 455-6608 ME406 ACE is a single output ELT, utilizing 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. The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 MHz Every 50 seconds, for 440 milliseconds, the 406 MHz transmitter turns on and sends an encoded 5-watt signal to alert Search and Rescue.

The mounting hardware for the ME406 Series is compatible with all previous models of Artex 406 MHz ELT products, as well as the ELT-200 Series, ACK, Pointer Model 3000 ELT and Narco ELTs. The self-contained remote switch is powered by a 6-year lithium battery, making it independent from aircraft power.

Cost-efficient upgrade to Artex Technology
The new remote switch replaces the old ACK switch on the instrument panel, eliminating the need for alterations. A special adapter mounted onto the ME406 ACE ELT receives the plug on the ELT side of the wiring. Installation time is further reduced by reusing the existing wiring harness to connect the remote switch to the ELT.
