Tracerline has released the Marksman II (part no. TP-9367), an ultrasonic diagnostic tool that converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible “natural” sound.
Tracerline says that service technicians can now easily hear sounds that signify problems such as air brake leaks, compressed air leaks, vacuum leaks, tire leaks, and much more. The tool’s solid contact probe quickly pinpoints wear or damage to internal components, without disassembly, while its hollow air probe helps isolate leak sources in cramped areas. The innovative Marksman II can provide an accurate diagnosis of leaks and defects before they lead to major breakdowns.
The Marksman II uses a two-tiered approach to ensure an accurate diagnosis. The ultrasonic receiver converts inaudible sound into audible sound using heterodyne circuitry. Then, its unique Sound Signature Technology fine-tunes the audible sound into the natural sound emitted by the leak itself. A 5-LED signal-intensity indicator and audible alarm easily pinpoint the exact problem source.
The Marksman II comes complete with an ultrasonic receiver, headphones, hollow air probe, solid contact probe and an ultrasonic emitter that helps locate faulty seals, gaskets and weatherstripping in passenger cabs, trailers and other non-pressurized enclosures. All components are packed in a sturdy carrying case.
