The Artex 8701 (replaces PN: 455-9100) ELT Test Set is a rugged and waterproof handheld device that is used to read the transmitted code of a 406 MHz Cospas-Sarsat ELT. The beacon ID and all encoded data is displayed on the reader, letting you know that your emergency locator transmitter is working properly before you set out on your next adventure. The data retrieved is saved to a database and is time-stamped for later review.
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) providing unbeatable versatility and easy testing. The Artex 8701 is easy to use and is a must-have for any aviation enthusiast’s collection.
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. Whether you’re the proud owner of a small aircraft, an aircraft mechanic or employed by a large airline, the Artex 8701 ETS is a great investment. 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.
Order the Artex 8701 ELT Test Set from SkyGeek and enjoy fast shipping on this handheld must-have. The tester is available with a manufacturer’s certification for a small additional charge, if desired. Order your tester now and confirm that your ELT beacon is working properly prior to takeoff.
