The ARTEX ELT 345 Pilot Kit is the perfect combination of safety and survival products designed to keep aviators safe in an emergency. The Pilot Kit provides aviators with one convenient kit to outfit their aircraft with the latest 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) along with personal survival gear to provide a redundant system to alert Search and Rescue of their location.
The ELT Pilot Kit (EDMO# 2259.1) includes the ELT 345, ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon, C-Light™ H₂O Emergency Distress Light, Hot Shot™ Signal Mirror, and WW-3 Res-Q™ Whistle.
The ARTEX ELT 345 transmits on 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz frequencies and can provide position accuracy with an optional GPS input thanks to the built-in GPS navigational interface. GPS data is embedded from the first emergency transmission and provides Search and Rescue personnel with the aircraft location, within 100 meters, in less than a minute. This unit can be activated manually with (remote switch or ELT switch) or automatically (the G-switch detects a 2.3G or greater impact). Once activated, the ELT 345 transmits a 406 MHz signal with the beacon’s unique registration information and embedded GPS coordinates to the closest search and rescue agency via the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system. The beacon also transmits a 121.5 MHz homing signal to assist search and rescue to pinpoint the aircraft’s GPS location.

The ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is engineered and tested to withstand even the harshest elements. This Personal Locator Beacon requires no subscription to use and enhances safety in a variety of environments. This lightweight and compact PLB uses GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz transmitter, and a 121.5 MHz homing signal to quickly and accurately relay its GPS position to the worldwide network of search and rescue satellites — narrowing the search area to less than 100 meters. In addition to being easy-to-use, the ResQLink includes a built-in strobe light and an infrared strobe to facilitate nighttime or low visibility rescue operations. The innovative design combines multifunction clips with the ResQLink 400 to provide a multitude of wearable options for a diverse range of activities.
The C-Light™ manually activated personal distress light provides 20 lumens of light output and over 30 hours of continues operation. The C-Light is rugged, waterproof and USCG/SOLAS approved. The twist on/off activation make this survival light for outdoor enthusiasts.
The WW-3 Res-Q™ Whistle is developed for the U.S. Navy to locate over-board persons. This signal whistle produces a 102 dB, dual-tone shrill that can be heard over long distances. The flat design prevents the whistle from holding water. Included is an 18-inch lanyard to attach to life jackets, rafts, and foul weather gear.
