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
Test Data:
  • 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
  • The ARTEX Programmer/Tester has all the aforementioned functionality of the Tester and it can also quickly and easily program the full line of ARTEX ELTs
  • It is capable of programming the desired protocol, NAV Data Baud Rate, and required information as outlined by Cospas-Sarsat through the applicable programming cable (included)
