Tracer Products has introduced the Tracerline Marksman ultrasonic diagnostics tool, a highly accurate instrument that converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible "natural" sound.
The Marksman Master Kit comes with a receiver, full-sized headphones, two anodized probes and an ultrasonic emitter.

The tool was built to help technicians easily hear sounds that signify problems such as air brake leaks, gear and bearing wear, as well as vacuum, EVAP system, exhaust refrigerant and passenger compartment leaks.

In a two-step diagnostic process, the receiver unit first converts inaudible sound into audible sound using a process known as heterodyning. Then, the receiver's Sound Signal Technology fine-tunes the audible sound into the natural sound emitted by the defect itself. A 10-bar LED display indicates the intensity of incoming signals from the problem source to ensure error-free diagnosis.

The TP-9370 Marksman Master Kit comes with a receiver, full-sized headphones, two anodized probes and an ultrasonic emitter that allows technicians to test for faulty seals, gaskets and weather stripping in passenger compartments, trailer bodies and other unpressurized enclosures. When attached to the receiver, the 12-inch hollow probe accentuates air sounds, while the solid contact probe accentuates sounds of wear or grinding inside gears. Standard 9-volt alkaline batteries are included for both the receiver and the emitter. All components come in a storage case with foam insert.
