Service technicians should check out General Technology Corp.'s new TA100 SmarTach+ wireless tachometer and secondary ignition voltage meter, says GTC vice president of sales and marketing Berge Baronian.
It replaces the company's SmarTach and includes a display screen and the ability to read higher voltages, he says. It can be used to troubleshoot non-starts, cylinder misfires and damaged spark plugs, Baronian says. Another primary function is to check and set engine rpm. The TA100 SmarTach+ comes with a protective holster, antenna and carrying case. It measures from 200 to 19,999 rpm and from zero to 50,000 volts. The LCD displays maximum and minimum readings with a response time of 0.3 seconds. The tool is backlit and includes on-target and low-battery indicators. The company backs the product with a one-year warranty. Price is $194.50. Contact: General Technology Corp., (800) 440-5582. www.gtc.ca
