The short answer is that it’s our modern take on an old type of tool. The long answer is… longer.
One of the questions we hear most often is ‘what is a wasted spark?’. Wasted sparks are also known by many other names, including ‘waste sparks’, ‘exhaust sparks’, which adds to the confusion.

An all around useful Diagnostic Tool General Technologies Corp introduces the TA100 professional Smartach+ to the industry as the first ever wireless handheld tachometer and secondary ignition tester. The TA100 SmarTach + combines a wireless tachometer and a secondary ignition voltage tester into one hand held tool. The digital tachometer measures up to 20,000 RPM on engines with 1 to 12 cylinders, 2 or 4 cycles and DIS systems. The wireless Smartach+ senses and picks up electromagnetic waves from the ignition system, eliminating the need for test leads, inductive-up or reflective tapes. When held about a foot over the ignition system with the antenna extended, the tach speed is displayed instantly on a digital screen. The Secondary ignition voltage tester provides a digital readout of the spark plug wire voltage, useful in detecting and troubleshooting problems in ignition systems, such as cylinder misfires, bad spark plug wires and whether a spark exists in no-start diagnostics.
