More Information

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 TPS 8715 for General Aviation 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.  This system only programs ARTEX General Aviation ELTs* including the ME406, ELT 345 and ELT 1000. 

ELT Decoding

The ARTEX TPS 8715 is a rugged, compact, and portable system that 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 TPS 8715 is a decoding device only and does not measure power.  Please contact your local authority for ELT measurement requirements for annual inspections. 

Program GA Line of ELT

The TPS 8715 can quickly and easily program the full line of ARTEX General Aviation ELTs with the desired protocol, NAV Data Baud Rate and required information as outlined by Cospas-Sarsat through the programming cable (included).

Test Data

The TPS 8715 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 TPS 8715, and it is time stamped as proof of transmission and proper programming.  The TPS 8715 can print via a USB interface to a PC.  The printing capability requires a downloadable software program available at ACRARTEX.com.

The TPS 8715 is delivered without software and you must register and take training on www.ACRARTEX.com in order to download the required software applications.  The training is self-service and available at no cost.   A quick start guide is included with each unit outlining the procedure.

*For transport level ELT programming, please refer to PN 8700 ELT TPS.
