ELT 1000 ACE
406 MHz ELT with GPS Nav Interface
Base Pack with Whip Antenna, Remote Switch
(DAI Part# 8205)
Improved Postional Accuracy
The ARTEX ELT 1000 is a value-priced upgrade to standard 121.5 MHz transmitters, which are no longer monitored by the Cospas-Sarsat system. The 406 MHz transmitter produces a much more accurate position, typically 1.86 miles as compared with 9.3 to 12.4 miles for 121.5 MHz transmitters. When coupled to the aircraft navigation system via the built-in GPS interface, the ELT 1000's accuracy improves up to approximately 110 yards.

An Affordable Upgrade
Because it is a single output ELT, the ARTEX ELT 1000 utilizes the same RF output and only one coax cable to transmit a 406 MHz emergency signal to Cospas-Sarsat satellites and a local 121.5 homing signal. The all new built in GPS Nav Interface does not require aircraft power to operate - greatly reducing installation cost. The new remote switch only requires 2-wires, this makes upgrading your older 121.5 MHz ELT simple and affordable.
