ARTEX 455-9100 Features and Specifications *

 The Artex ETS ELT Test Set is a waterproof and rugged handheld ELT Tester which reads the transmitted code of a 406 Mhz Cospas-Sarsat ELT via direct connection or wirelessly and displays the beacon ID and all other data on an easy-to-read grayscale LCD screen. In addition, all collected data is automatically saved to a database and time-stamped for reference. This is an efficient means to verify a beacon's ID for registration purposes, owner changes, reprogramming, or reinstallation.
