Search and Rescue Products Model Number: 8700/8701 / Part Number: 8700/8701
The ARTEX Programmer/Tester and the ARTEX Tester are rugged, compact, and portable systems that allow for programming and/or verification and testing of all ARTEX ELTs.
ELT Testing and Verification of ELT ID
Aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) are required to have their unique identification number registered with the national authorities. The ARTEX Tester provides a simple method to verify and save the ARTEX ELTs ID after installation, reprogramming or should the beacon need to be re-registered after an aircraft ownership change.
The ARTEX Tester decodes the transmission of 406 MHz Cospas-Sarsat transmissions. The transmission can be read directly though the antenna cable or through the antenna itself. The unit will also indicate if 121.5 MHz is present. The Tester is a decoding device only and does not measure power. Please contact your local authority for ELT measurement requirements for annual inspections.
The ARTEX Tester records all data in an internal database which can be backed up to your PC. The data can be viewed on the computer independently of the Tester, and it is time stamped as proof of transmission and proper programming. The Tester can print via a USB interface to a PC. The printing capability requires a downloadable software program available at ACRARTEX.com
ARTEX PROGRAMMER/TESTER(P/N 8700)
The ARTEX Programmer/Tester has all the aforementioned functionally of the Tester and it can also quickly and easily program the full line of ARTEX ELTs. It is capable of programming the desired protocol, NAV Data Baud Rate, and required information as outlined by Cospas-Sarsat through the applicable programming cable (included).
