ELT 345

*Hookup wires for remote switch panel not included

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.

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.
