EBC 406AP Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) - Survival Locator Beacon


The EBC 406 is the first of the new line of digital EBC ELT's. Designed with the newest technology it also incorporates the best and proven features that characterize all of EBC's emergency locator transmitters. These transmitters have encapsulated electronics and battery packs to provide for added protection against shock, moisture, and other environmental hazards. They have a built-in monitor that emits a loud beeping tone if the ELT is activated. They can be activated either automatically or manually.

The EBC 406 lines of emergency locator transmitters have been designed with installation flexibility in mind. The EBC 406 AP-Series ELT should be installed in the cabin of the aircraft. Installation near the pilot eliminates the need for a remote control, thus reducing the installation costs and eliminating the need to use precious panel space. Installation in the cabin also allows for easy removal of the ELT in case of an actual emergency - just disconnect the external antenna coax cable and attach the survival antenna. The EBC 406 AF-Series should be installed in the tail section of the aircraft for those who prefer that ELT location. In that case, a remote unit is provided for the aircraft panel so the the ELT can be controlled by the pilot. As with the cabin mounted unit, survival antenna is used when the transmitter is removed from the aircraft. All EBC 406 ELT's have a built-in self test feature that allows the pilot to check 406 power and the antenna-coax connection. Both cabin and tail mount ELT's use an external antenna.
