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.
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).
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
