RF-IT Insulator Tester

RF-IT Insulator Testers

The RF-IT Insulator Testers allows you to verify that there are no shorts in your above ground pipeline. It is a highly sensitive device used to test above ground pipeline insulators. The automatic RF-IT allows the operator to pinpoint the precise contact point. The RF-IT emits an audible beep and when the operator gets closer to the point of contact the unit starts beeping faster. At the same time the sliding scale LCD meter moves from left to right. This affordable unit is also fantastic for flange bolts.

The RF-IT has an internal band-pass filter which will filter out all the frequencies above and below 221kHz. This allows taking measurements on pipelines that are under cathodic protection or have other induced or impressed currents or signals. It is important to note that because the RF-IT uses Radio Frequency to measure the effectiveness of an insulator, the measurement results can not be displayed in Ohms.



  • Hand held instrument

Instructions for Use

  • The RF-IT uses Radio Frequency to operate.
  • Place one probe on each side of the insulator/pipe.
  • The RF-IT will apply radio fenquency between the two probes, if a signal is able to travel between the probes easily, the device will receive a strong signal.
