The Artex 8701 (replaces PN: 455-9100) ELT Test Set is a rugged and waterproof handheld device to read the transmitted code of a 406 MHz Cospas-Sarsat ELT. The beacon ID and all encoded data is displayed on the reader. The data is saved to a database, and is time-stamped.
The beacon can be read over the air (in test mode or a shielded enclosure), or transmitting directly into the reader (for beacons with external antenna connections).
Since it is crucial for the beacon ID to be registered with the national authorities, the ETS Test Set provides an easy and economical means to verify the ID after installation or reprogramming. A beacon must also be re-registered when aircraft or beacon ownership changes, so verification is necessary. The ETS can also print a record directly to a serial or Infrared (IRDA) enabled printer. Low cost infrared adapters are available to turn any printer with a parallel port interface into an infrared printer.
