Great inexpensive ELT with all the quality of the high end units. I replaced a very old ELT in my 1948 Navion A with the Artex ELT 345.
I love the ELT345s but I wish Artex would provide a DB connector for pins vs soldering. Users should absolutely be aware of the 50-second test period before the 406 signal goes active. One that 406 signal goes active, it could get real expensive if elicits a false alarm air search.
This is a high quality item and includes almost all the components youll need to install this ELT in your aircraft. For example, the antenna comes with its own coaxial cable and the D-sub connector comes with pins and a backshell housing. The only thing you need to supply is the tefzel wiring. One thing to be aware of with this unit is that it does not have an actual built-in GPS nav unit to give your position in case of emergency if you read the description carefully, youll see that it is ABLE to transmit a GPS signal, but that signal has to be provided by an outside source, like a panel-mount NAV GPS or a handheld unit. And you should make sure that you know what GPS you plan to use, as the signal output rate (Baud rate) needs to match with this unit. It can accept either Aviation Data format (9600 baud) or NMEA (4800 baud) and needs to be programmed into the ELT.
Easy install, unit came complete with pretty much everything needed. It tested ok. I hope I never need to find out if it works in a crash.
Had it in stock, quick shipping and great price. Meets my needs completely!
This ELT was a perfect replacement for my legacy ARTEX 121.5 in my PA-38 which had originally been relocated to the epanage from the center console by the previous owner . I had to order 12 ft of braided twisted pair milspec shielded wire to replace the existing wire in order to avoid any interference issues. The unit passed the testing and is up and running and the new whip antenna is just fine. All in all a great value!
We have installed many of these units! Very impressed with Artex and their development of this reasonably priced ELT for general aviation.
This is a replacement unit so I am in the process of installation. My impressions to date are that this is a solid product but there are a couple of things to be aware of: 1: the panel switch is significantly larger that my previous unit which means a panel modification not plug a play. 2: the unit comes with no wiring diagrams in the box you have to go to the web site an surf thru a 50 page document for the wiring diagram. 3: the antenna is atrocious there is no way I would put that on the exterior of my aircraft. Fortunately for me there is space under my Plex canopy that it will fit. 4: you need to be proficient in soldering din connectors.
Should provide instruction manual. Have to print 58 pages
Not a bad installation, mounted under the front seat for easy access and install. This was done on a 7GCBC that is.used for floats and winteice fishing.
