  TA100 Brief description                                                                                                                                 

The TA100s unique and proprietary technology allows the user to perform quick and reliable diagnostics of non-starts, misfires, fouled up or damaged spark plugs and/or spark plug wires, by comparing digital read-outs of the spark plug voltage between cylinders on engines using conventional distributor/ignition coil, DIS (Distributor-less) or waste spark and magneto technologies.

Simple to use, the TA100 requires no special adapters, cables or a scope and is equipped with a large digital display that shows spark plug voltage, RPM, as well as Min/Max readings in real time.


TA100 Features


Secondary ignition analyzer

  • Measures spark plug wire voltage from 0 to 50000 Volt

  • Special antenna sensor allows quick hook-up to spark plug and ignition coil wires

  • No ground wire connections required, for fast troubleshooting

  • Multiple diagnostic applications are described in comprehensive User's Handbook (Included)

Tachometer function

  • For 1 to 12 cylinders and 2, 4 cycle and DIS engines

  • Measures from 200 to 20000 RPM on a 4-1/2 digits LCD display

  • Advanced microcontroller technology yields 0.05 % accuracy

  • No sighting of rotating parts or hook-up required.

  • Works on DIS, Conventional, Magneto and most spark ignition system.

Simple and easy to use

  • Secondary Ignition Voltage Tester: Place the antenna's capacitive sensor on a spark plug wire or coil. Peak voltage of the ignition pulse in kilovolts is displayed.

  • Adjustable KV scale: allows the user to trim the KV reading scale, to match other instrument or a know value.

  • Tachometer: Set the number of cylinders and cycles, either place the capacitive sensor on a spark plug wire, or hold the instrument's antenna near the ignition system. RPM is displayed.

  • Minimum and Maximum display: Two secondary displays show in real time the maximum and minimum readings.
