406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter

Model Number: 453-5012

The Artex G406-4 transmits on all 3 emergency frequencies (121.5/243.0 and 406 MHz). The system was designed for use with the general aviation market in mind. The ELT automatically activates during a crash and transmits the standard swept tone on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz. The G406-4 also transmits a 406 MHz encoded digital message to the Cospas/Sarsat satellite system, which allows for rapid identification and reduces Search and Rescue response time.

More Information

The G406-4 has been tested to meet the rigorous requirements of TSO C126 including 500 G shock, 1000 pound crush as well as flame and vibration tests. The G406-4 is available for use with Artex's low cost whip antennas or a sturdy fiberglass rod antenna. The G406-4 may be interfaced with the optional Artex ELT/NAV Interface enabling latitude and longitude data to be transmitted as part of the 406 MHz message.  

ARTEX ELTs are the choice of general aviation aircraft including Cessna, Piper, Cirrus, Beechcraft, Diamond, and Quest.

Warranty Length: 30 months from date of installation of the Goods on Buyer's solution. 24 months from the date of dispatch of Goods by the Supplier

Warranty coverage is effectively extended from previous warranties offered on Artex products.  To qualify for warranty coverage, a customer must do one of two things.

1) Provide the original packing list from Artex with a shipping date on it.  The warranty period expires 24 months from the date shipped on the packing list. 

2) Provide proof of installation date (Logbook entry, signed copy of the FAA form 337 the ELT was installed under, or other documentation stating such).

If the customer is unable to provide either methods of documentation, the warranty will apply for 24 months from date of manufacture listed on the ELT product label, with a 6 month installation grace period - effectively 30 months.

For any inquiries regarding warranties, feel free to contact Artex products technical support at: artexsupport@acrartex.com or by phone at USA 954-981-3333.
