You’re never fully prepared without an Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) on board. The ELT 3000™ is a truly integrated safety device. Its compact design and navigational interface ensure that installation is easy, and that search and rescue teams will always be able to locate your aircraft. Plus, the ELT3000 automatically transmits your latitude/longitude every 50 seconds for 24 hours on the 406 MHz distress frequency. This allows local first responders to pinpoint the exact aircraft location within minutes of beacon activation, should you run into an emergency situation. Be Prepared for the Unpredictable: – Manual and automatic activation – Two-wire remote switch – Flexible installation – Stainless steel mounting bracket – Built-in navigational interface
With aircraft NAV-Data seamlessly integrated, latitude/longitude is automatically transmitted every 50 seconds for 24 hours on the 406 MHz distress frequency. This allows emergency responders to pin-point the exact aircraft location within a few minutes of the beacon being activated.
The ARTEX ELT 3000 is designed to reduce the size and weight of the ELT system in a simple-to-install package. To simplify installation, the ARTEX ELT 3000 utilizes a single RF output that connects to a tri-band antenna reducing the installation to a single coax cable. The single input antenna and the elimination of an external NAV interface greatly reduces installation costs.
The ARTEX ELT 3000 is compatible with ARTEX’s exclusive online satellite confirmation testing system, 406Test.com. This exclusive system provides real-time beacon testing results through the same satellites used by Search and Rescue ensuring the 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.
How the ARTEX ELT 3000 works
The ARTEX ELT 3000 can be activated manually (via cockpit remote switch) or automatically (the G-Switch senses a 2.3G or greater impact), and alerts the closest Search and Rescue agency of an emergency. The 406 MHz signal, containing the aircraft 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. The beacon will provide first responders with the exact location to within 100 meters. Finally, the 121.5/243 MHz homing signals assist Search and Rescue ground forces with finding the location of the emergency.
Ease of Installation
The ARTEX ELT 3000 provides a quick-and-easy retrofit opportunity with flexible installation options such as a two or five-wire remote switch that does not require any aircraft power. Because it is a single output ELT, the ELT 3000 utilizes the same RF output and only one coax cable to transmit both 406 MHz and 121.5/243 MHz signals. The built-in navigation interface reduces the need to mount a secondary external interface, greatly reducing the cost of installation. There are two mounting trays available. One allows for the smallest footprint possible while the other matches legacy ARTEX B and C Series ELT installations, providing further reduction of engineering costs.
