The ETS (ELT Test Set) is a rugged and waterproof handheld device to read the transmitted code of an Artex 406 Mhz ELT. The beacon ID and all encoded data is displayed on the reader. The data is saved to an internal database and is time-stamped.

The Artex ELT can be read over the air (in test mode or a shielded enclosure) or transmitting directly into the reader (for beacons with external antenna connections).

Since it is crucial for the beacon ID to be registered with the national authorities, the ETS provides an easy and economical means to verify the ID after installation or reprogramming. A beacon must also be re-registered when aircraft or beacon ownership changes, so verification is necessary.
