TS 8701 - Tester Set
Tester SetModel Number: TS 8701 / Part No. 8701
The ARTEX 8701 Tester is a rugged, compact, and portable system that allows for testing/verification of all ARTEX ELTs.
The link below provides access to the downloadable software program which allows users to print test data stored in the internal database of the Tester Set:
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.
*All features of 8701 are only applicable to ARTEX ELTs.
