Tracer Products says its new Tracerline Marksman II ultrasonic diagnostic tool is a highly accurate instrument that converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible “natural” sound.
With it, the company says service technicians can easily hear sounds that signify problems such as air brake leaks, compressed air leaks, vacuum leaks, tire leaks and more.
The Marksman II uses a two-tiered approach to ensure accurate diagnosis. Tracer Products says 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 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), the company says. An Internal Noise Control feature also is said to buffer ambient noise, making it ideal for use in even extremely noisy environments.
Tracer Products says the 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 weather stripping in passenger cabs, trailers and other non-pressurized enclosures, Tracer Products says. All components are packed in a sturdy carrying case.
