Ultrasound Technology is the smart approach to inspection:

  • Ultrasound is very directional and localized
  • Ultrasound can be easily blocked or shielded
  • Ultrasound instruments can be used in noisy environments
  • Changes in Ultrasound provide early warning of potential problems
  • Ultrasound instruments are easy to use!

The Ultraprobe® 2000ATEX also enables data reporting through three modes: through auditory channels (via a headset that has been specifically selected for heavy duty industrial use), through a uniquely designed bi-modal analog meter, and through the ability to interface with vibration analyzers, & sound recording devices via the heterodyned output.

The Ultraprobe® 2000ATEX can be adapted to test any problem in operating equipment with such features as:

  • FREQUENCY TUNING enables a user to tune into problem “sounds” while minimizing background interference.
  • METER MODE selection adjusts the meter response from a real time response to an averaging response. This feature allows accurate adjustments for leak detection and for mechanical analysis.

The Ultraprobe® 2000ATEX can heterodyne ultrasound into audible range providing accurate sound reproduction.
Sensitive only to ultrasonic frequencies, the Ultraprobe® 2000 will not respond to the low frequency noises often associated with most plant equipment. Therefore, the instrument can be effectively utilized in very loud factory environments.

This unique instrument offers a unique & accurate listening experience for your troubleshooting needs in ATEX required zones!


Complete with everything you need to for accurate route inspection, the Ultraprobe® 2000ATEX includes standard:

  • ULTRAPROBE housing with metered pistol grip, ballistic meter, frequency tuning dial, 10 turn potentiometer, numerically calibrated sensitivity dial with selection lock, bi-modal meter selector switch, battery, battery indicator light, battery recharger receptacle and head set receptacle.
  • Deluxe industrial noise reducing headset
  • Battery recharge kit for main housing and warble tone generator
  • Zero Halliburton aluminum carrying case
  • Trisonic scanning module for locating airborne ultrasound such as pressure, vacuum and electrical emissions
  • Rubber focusing probe for narrowing reception band of scanning module and for blocking out ambient ultrasound
  • Stethoscope (contact type) probe for monitoring internal ultrasound such as in bearings, steam traps and valves
  • Extension probe kit to increase stethoscope contact range to 78 cm (31 inch)
  • Warble tone generator with amplitude selection switch for use in tone test method
  • Comprehensive instruction manual

Only this configuration is available under the ATEX certification.


Construction: Hand-held metered pistol type made with aluminum and ABS plastic
