 It might be some kind of bearing failure detection
devise. The switches would be to select the frequency
to listen at. In a large shop, with a lot of machines
running ( like a printing press ), one needs something
check each bearing to see if it about to fail. When
a bearing is just starting to go bad, it growls.
The frequencies mentioned are in the range one would
expect for larger bearings.
