The Artex C406-2 transmits on all 3 emergency frequencies (121.5/243.0
and 406 MHz). 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 406.025 MHz
transmitter turns on and transmits an encoded digital message to the
Cospas/Sarsat satellite system.
The ELT can be programmed with the
aircraft's 24-bit address as well as latitude/longitude information from
the aircraft navigation system when used with the Artex ELT/NAV
Interface (P/N 453-6500). Also available is the Artex C406-2HM, which
is equipped with a 6 axis "G" switch for helicopter installations.
The mounting hardware for the C406-2 series is compatible with all previous
versions of Artex 406 MHz ELT's.
