ELT Alarm Box


An ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) is a device that detects an aircraft crash and sends a signal to help Search and Rescue locate that aircraft. The SA ELT Alarm Box listens for ELT signals anywhere in-world and produces a visual and audio alarm. It is designed to be mounted on the wall of Search and Rescue bases or anywhere were it is important to know when there air aircraft in distress. To use the SA ELT Alarm Box, simply rez it against a wall, and adjust as necessary. Then just press the power button to turn it on. When an ELT is detected, the beacon on top will flash, and an audio alarm will be emitted. A "Silence" button on the front can be pressed to quench the sound, though the beacon will continue to flash as long as there is an active ELT.

The device contains a *config notecard with the following four options:

  • volume: A value between 0 and 100 with 100 being the loudest, and 0 suppressing all sound.
  • timeout: Time in seconds until the alarm sound is automatically silenced. A value of 0 means there is no timeout and the alarm sound will continue until the silence button is pressed, or the aircraft emitting the ELT is no longer transmitting.
  • radius: Indicates the maximum number of regions away for an ELT device to trigger an alarm. A value of 0 indicates no maximum range.
  • projector: If 1, then projectors will be used. If 0, then no projectors will be used.
