Emergency Locator Transmitter
(DAI Part# P3000-11A)
International Satellite Search and Rescue
System Qualified (COSPAS/SARSAT)
The current model 3000 (AF/AP) and 3000 (AF) which have been in
production for 20-years are now revised to incorporate the upgrades of
RTCA DO-183 for emergency locator transmitters.
The new modes, designated 3000-10 (AF/AP) and 3000-11 (AF) are
interchangeable with existing units in form, fit and function. The mounting
bracket, directly interchangeable with the current design, has been
modified for the new environmental requirements.
A remote panel control switch with visual activation monitor, previously
an optional accessory, is now required in all (AF) automatic fixed
installations and many of the (AP) automatic portable installations, is now
included in the complete kits.
The standard whip antenna and coaxial cable previously supplied with
the model 3000 unit is interchangeable with the new models. Those
components, if serviceable, may remain in use with the new transmitter.
Consult with our avionics shop.
Existing remote switch wiring for current pointer units may be used and
installation of the switch requires minimal panel space.
The 3000-10 and 3000-11 transmitters will incorporate an alkaline battery
pack specifically designed to endure the short term extreme thermal
variations and mechanical shock requirements of RTCA DO-183.
Installed weight will remain at 2.0 lbs. (0.9 Kg) emergency voice
transmission is provided on the 3000-10 transmitter if desired.
