AccuTrak VPE-1000 Digital Ultrasonic Detector


VPE-1000 Digital Ultrasonic Detector by Superior AccuTrak

When powerful performance is needed and budgets are limited, choose the versatile Superior AccuTrak® VPE-1000. It is the first low cost digital ultrasonic detector, offering extraordinary features at a fraction of the cost of other ultrasonic instruments. The AccuTrak® model VPE-1000 is extremely sensitive to the ultrasonic sound of leaks and friction in industrial systems. By using a technique called "heterodyning" it translates the ultrasound to a lower frequency which our ears can interpret. The AccuTrak® is so sensitive it can hear the blink of an eye, yet most background noise will not interfere with detection accuracy. Patented technology uses a microcomputer and digital circuitry making AccuTrak® the most accurate and repeatable ultrasonic inspection instrument available in its class.


The VPE-1000 is perfect for schools, hospitals, hotels, and other large institutional or industrial environments. Use for a variety of leak detection and plant maintenance applications.

  • Leak Detection: Air, Vacuum, Refrigerants; ANY GAS!
  • Steam Traps: Detect live steam loss in seconds!
  • Valves: Detect/hear internal leakage in check, ball, needle, gate or any type of valve! Diagnose thermal expansion valves in just five minutes!
  • Bearings: Hear wear and lubrication problems before damage is done!
  • Electric Arc and Corona: Inspect circuit breakers, relays, and buss bars! Check for corrosion on contacts and proper insulation!
  • Pneumatics and Hydraulics: Inspect controls, hoses, tools, fittings and internal cylinders with ease!
  • Vibration: Detect the ultrasonic sound generated by excessive friction!
  • Fan Belts


  • Digital LED Indicators: Both alphanumeric and bar-graph!
  • Digital Peak Hold: Holds highest level for easy readability!
  • Separate Volume/Sensitivity: Independent controls allow you to "zoom" into sounds in noisy areas!
  • Dual Sensors: Each with excellent frequency response, and independent settings
