406 MHz ELT Tester (Test Set)

406MHz ELT Tester handheld and lightweight

Technical description

The 406MHz ELT Tester allows to perform:

  • reception, demodulation and decoding of the emergency information transmitted on channel 406 MHz;
  • position data encoding(if available) in degree’s, minutes, seconds;
  • frequency measurement of 406MHz signal with accuracy ± 500Hz;
  • frequency measurement of 121,5 MHz signal with accuracy ± 300Hz;
  • frequency measurement of 243 MHz signal with accuracy ± 300Hz;
  • level measurement on 406 MHz channel in range 19…43dBm with accuracy ±0.5dB (-34…-10dBm ±2dB  by means of antenna);
  • level measurement on 121.5 MHz channel in range 13…20dBm with accuracy ±0.5dB (-40…-34dBm ±2dB  by means of antenna);
  • level measurement on 243 MHz channel in range 13…20dBm with accuracy ±0.5dB (-40…-34dBm ±2dB  by means of antenna);;
  • estimation of the positive/negative phase deviation of modulated signal with accuracy to  ± 2,8о;
  • measurement of total transmission time of 406 MHz signal with accuracy ± 0,2%;
  • measurement of  unmodulated carrier duration of 406 MHz signal with accuracy ± 0,2%;;
  • estimation of the equivalent radiated power of 406 MHz signal through broadcast.

The tester power supply is performed by 4 AA batteries 1,5V, as well as by external DC source with voltage 4,5…7 V and load current no less than 300 mA. The tester is power supplied by USB cable when connected to computer or net USB adapter.

Approximate continuous operation time of the tester from the internal power supply elements is about 6 hours.

406MHz ELT Tester is comlpetely compatible with Galileo Search and Rescue System.
