ME-406 Series
455-6614
(DAI Part# 455-6614)
The Artex ME406 ACE (Absolute Cost Efficiency), a single output ELT, utilizes the same RF output and only one coax cable, connecting to the new series of Artex single input antennas to transmit 121.5 and 406 MHz emergency signals to the Cospas/Sarsat satellites. The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 MHz. Every 50 seconds, for 440 milliseconds, the 406 MHz transmitter turns on and sends an encoded 5-watt signal to alert Search and Rescue.

Comes With 110-773 Whip Antenna
