EBC DEFT-1 – TAIL MOUNTED EMERGENCY LOCATOR TRANSMITTER
Tail/aft mounted ELT. Made with either the long side or short side facing forward. Transmits on both 121.5 & 243.0MHz.
The DEFT-1 ELT is a tail mounted automatically activated emergency locator transmitter. The DEFT-1 may be manually activated via the unit OFF-ARM-ON switch and/or via the optional remote switch for testing or when an emergency is eminent. When activated, the DEFT-1 will radiate an omnidirectional RF signal on the international distress frequencies of 121.5 MHz and 243.0 MHz.
The DEFT-1 is for aviation emergency use only. Designed, manufactured and tested under the strictest quality control procedures it is warranted for two years. The DEFT-1 ELT can be purchased alone or with accessories, such as antennas or cabling. Because this ELT is mounted in the tail of the plane cabling and external antennas are needed. This ELT is a 12-volt system and must use only a 12-volt battery pack in order to function properly. It can be made up with the short side “forward” (“B” model) or mounted with the long side “forward” (“A” model).
