Abstract : The patent describes a hand-held tester for determining whether an object that is being irradiated with radio frequency energy is at a dangerously high induced radio frequency voltage level. The tester has a high impedance probe, and when this probe is brought in contact with such an object, the radio frequency flow, which takes place through it and the tester, develops a signal which is compared to a reference voltage. When this voltage is exceeded by a predetermined amount, a warning light source is operated.
