406 MHz ELT Tester (Test Set)

406MHz ELT Tester handheld and lightweight

General description

406 MHz / 243 MHz / 121.5 MHz ELT TESTER (ELTT-124 Test set) is designed to check the avionics emergency locator transmitters (ELT) operating via COSPAS-SARSAT system.

The 406MHz ELT TESTER is specified service equipment and reliable test solution for aircraft registry, aircraft surveyors, ELT suppliers, classification societies and administrative authorities.

ELT Test Set provides accurate, independent testing in volume of annual test requirements or in volume of maintenance requirements or for fast check after ELT’s encoding or installation in accordance with USA (FAA Part 91.207), Canada (CAR 571 Appendix G), Europe (CAA/EuroCAE) requirements.

ELT Test set is represented on US market under Icarus Instruments Inc trademark and ELTT-124 name.

ELT Test Set can receive messages from any 406 MHz COSPAS-SARSAT beacons transmitting either in test mode or in real alert emergency mode.

The signal can be received through the broadcast by means of antenna or the tester can be connected directly by means of cable through a suitable attenuator included in standard deliver set. Radiated tests in real alert emergency mode should be carried out using screened room (or enclosure) only.

Since it is crucial for the beacon ID to be registered with the national authorities, the 406 MHz ELT Tester provides an easy means to verify the ID after installation or reprogramming.

The tester provides demodulation and decoding of the emergency information and displays on your choice the НЕХ-code (15 Hex ID or the message 1-112 bit) as well as all decoded information in text view with all measured parameters. Tester displays position data (if available) in degree’s, minutes, seconds. Besides, the BCH code is calculated and compared with received one, and the result is displayed.

The tester provides measurement of received signal level on frequencies of 121,5MHz, 243MHz, 406MHz.

The tester provides measurement of frequency meaning on 121.5 MHz, 243 MHz and 406 MHz channels.

The tester allows to perform measurement of beacon parameters by means of standard external antenna (on distance from 3 to 15 meters), as well as via high-frequency cable and attenuator connection.

The tester can be used for Galileo Search and Rescue equipment serivce.
