Ultrasonic Diagnostic Tool "Hears" Problems Before They Lead to Breakdowns in Heavy Duty Vehicles

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - November 24, 2015) - Tracer Products manufactures a line of specialty tools that increase productivity and slash downtime. These products quickly and effectively diagnose all types of leaks before they result in costly repairs.

Tracerline® Marksman™ II (P/N TP-9367) ultrasonic diagnostic tool is a highly accurate instrument that converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible "natural" sound. Now service technicians can easily hear sounds that signify problems such as air brake leaks, compressed air leaks, vacuum leaks, tire leaks and much more…before they lead to major breakdowns. 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 Marksman II uses a two-tiered approach to ensure accurate diagnosis. The ultrasonic receiver converts inaudible sound into audible sound using heterodyne circuitry. Then, its unique Sound Signature Technology finetunes the audible sound into the natural sound emitted by the leak itself. A 5-LED signal-intensity indicator and audible alarm easily locates the exact problem source.

This specialty tool is so sensitive that it can detect leaks from orifices as small as 0.004 in (0.1 mm) at 5.0 psi (34 kPa), from a distance of 12 in (30 cm). An Internal Noise Control feature buffers ambient noise, making it ideal for use in even extremely noisy environments.

This sleek, lightweight, ergonomically designed tool provides comfort and easy handling for prolonged use. 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.
