Emergency Beacon Corporation Manufacturer of Emergency Locator Transmitters

Emergency Beacon Corporation of New Rochelle, New York has a complete line of transmitters for fixed wing aircraft and rotorcraft.

Emergency Beacon Corporation, founded in 1968, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of emergency locator transmitters with about 100,000 units in the field. The company qualifies as a small business, it is woman-owned and operated.

In February of 2009, the Search and Rescue system stopped processing the 121.5 MHz signals that it receives.

Now, the new digital signal on 406 MHz will be used for alerting and activating the Search and Rescue system while the 121.5 MHz signal will be used as a homing signal.

Emergency Beacon’s new emergency locator transmitters will transmit a digital signal on 406.028 MHz and a homing signal on 121.5 MHz. The transmitters are approved by COSPAS/SARSAT and meet FCC requirements.

They also are approved under TSO-C126 and TSO-C91a.

The complete line includes Automatic Portable (AP) transmitters for cabin/cockpit installation and Automatic Fixed (AF) transmitters for mounting in the tail of an aircraft and come with an external whip antenna. In addition, the AF units require a panel mounted Remote Control Monitor which is included.

The AP unit does not require the Remote Control Monitor because it is easily accessed in the cabin.

Both AP and AF units are also available with a proprietary 720˚ helicopter activation system that has proven itself in the field since 1982.

The new transmitters measure 6.7” x 2.9” x 2.5” and weigh 2.5 lbs (with battery). They are powered by lithium manganese dioxide batteries.
