The ARTEX ELT 345 is a 406 MHz ELT that provides exceptional value at an extremely competitive price. This unit can be activated manually (via the cockpit remote switch or ELT switch) or automatically (the G-switch senses a 2.3 G or greater impact). Once activated, the ELT 345 transmits a 406 MHz signal with the beacon's registration information and embedded GPS coordinates to the closest search and rescue agency via the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system.
Artex Emergency Locator Transmitter
The beacon also transmits a 121.5 MHz homing signal to help search and rescue pinpoint the aircraft/ELT location. This unit is designed for fast, flexible installation as either a new install or as a retrofit with options like a two-wire remote switch that does not draw aircraft power. The ELT 345 is a single-output ELT, using the same RF output and only one coax cable to transmit both 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz signals. The unit's built-in navigational interface does not require aircraft power to operate—which results in lower install costs—and the stainless steel mounting bracket supplied with the unit has a multiple-hole mounting pattern to accommodate legacy footprints.
Take to the skies with confidence with the ELT 345. When an emergency happens, rely on the same brand that leading commercial aircraft manufacturers trust for first-class quality, superior technology, and outstanding customer service. The best selling ARTEX ELT 345 is built to the industry’s most stringent quality management standards to ensure the ELT works the first time, every time. The ARTEX ELT 345 transmits on 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz frequencies while providing positon accuracy thanks to the built-in GPS navigational interface. The ELT 345 boasts an industry low price for an ELT providing the same quality and performance on which the ARTEX brand was built.
The ARTEX ELT 345 can be activated manually (via cockpit remote switch or ELT switch) or automatically (the G-Switch senses a 2.3G or greater impact), and transmits a unique digital signal on the 406 MHz distress frequency alerting the closest Search and Rescue agency of your emergency. The 406 MHz signal, containing your GPS coordinates, is transmitted to the Cospas-Sarsat satellites and relayed to the Mission Control Center where it is immediately routed to the nearest Search and Rescue agency. Your beacon’s registration will tell first responders who you are and the beacon itself lets them know where you are to within 100 meters. Finally, the local 121.5 MHz homing signal assists Search and Rescue agencies to identify your exact location.
Ease of Installation
The ARTEX ELT 345 provides a quick-and-easy retrofit opportunity with flexible installation options such as our standard or slim style two-wire remote switch that does not require any aircraft power. ELT 345 utilizes the same RF output using only one coax cable to transmit both 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz signals through either our 15- or 23-inch whip antennas. The built-in navigational interface does not require aircraft power to operate which greatly reduces the cost of installation. The stainless-steel mounting bracket has a multiple-hole pattern configuration that makes the replacement of legacy ARTEX ELTs or ACK, Kannad and AmeriKing ELTs quick and easy. Note: *Hookup wires for remote switch panel not included
Pair the ELT 345 with ARTEX’s exclusive online satellite confirmation testing system, 406Test.com, available in North America, and get real-time beacon testing results, from the same satellites used by Search and Rescue, to ensure your ELT system is functioning properly. There is a reason that ARTEX ELTs are the choice of more aircraft manufacturers than any other; they trust ARTEX to build the highest quality products knowing they are used to save lives.
ELT 345 Kits
There are now three comprehensive kit options available that provide users with access to the ELT 345, the world’s most popular ELT. Each option features a 2-wire remote switch, coax cable, antenna, and ELT installation kit. The primary difference between the kits pertains to the antenna and/or switch offering. Our most economical option (part number 8102), comes with our standard black whip antenna and standard 2-wire remote switch. The other two kits include a lower profile antenna option featuring a black whip antenna designed for installations where a shorter form factor is required. Lastly, while the 8102 and 8107 kits include the standard 2-wire remote switch, the 8108 kit features a new slim profile switch. The new slim switch is perfect for ACK and Ameri-King ELT retrofits as it requires no modification to the switch panel cut-out when replacing a legacy phone cord style switch. As an added benefit, the slim switch requires no batteries and operates using 2 wire connectivity for dependable cockpit panel operation.
The ARTEX ELT 345 provides a quick-and-easy retrofit opportunity with flexible installation options such as a two-wire remote switch that does not require any aircraft power. Because it is a single output ELT, the ELT 345 utilizes the same RF output and only one coax cable to transmit both 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz signals. The built-in navigational interface does not require aircraft power to operate which greatly reduces the cost of installation. The stainless steel mounting bracket has a multiple-hole pattern configuration which makes the replacement of legacy ARTEX ELTs or old ACK, Kannad and AmeriKing ELTs quick and easy.
Pair the ELT 345 with ARTEX’s exclusive online satellite confirmation testing system, 406Test.com, and get real-time beacon testing results, from the same satellites used by Search and Rescue, to ensure your ELT system is functioning properly. There is a reason that ARTEX ELTs are the choice of more aircraft manufacturers than any other; they trust ARTEX to build the highest quality products knowing they are used to save lives.
