The ARTEX ELT 345 is a 406 MHz GPS ELT that provides exceptional value at an extremely competitive price. The ELT 345 supplies 406 MHz and GPS functionality coupled with an installation pack. This unit can be activated manually (via the cockpit remote switch or ELT switch) or automatically (the G-switch senses a 2.3 G or greater impact). Once activated, the ELT 345 transmits a 406 MHz signal with the beacon's registration information and embedded GPS coordinates to the closest search and rescue agency via the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system. The beacon also transmits a 121.5 MHz homing signal to help search and rescue pinpoint the aircraft/ELT location. This unit is designed for fast, flexible installation as either a new install or as a retrofit with options like a two-wire remote switch that does not draw aircraft power. The ELT 345 is a single-output ELT, using the same RF output and only one coax cable to transmit both 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz signals. The unit's built-in navigational interface does not require aircraft power to operate—which results in lower install costs—and the stainless steel mounting bracket supplied with the unit has a multiple hole mounting pattern to accommodate legacy footprints.
