Description

The ARTEX C406-N series ELT’s (C406-N and C406-N HM) are a “third generation ELT,” transmitting on 121.5, 243.0 and 406.028 MHz. The ELT’s are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of TSO C91a, TSO C126 and the mandatory automatic ELT requirements of FAR Part 91.

The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz. Every 50 seconds for 520 milliseconds (long message protocol) the 406.028 MHz transmitter turns on.

The switch below the ELT cockpit light allows you to turn the unit on for testing and to reset the unit. You can not “disarm” or disable the unit from the cockpit. Cockpit operation is limited to deactivating the ELT after it has been activated, or manually activating the ELT.
