Tinker & Rasor APS High-Voltage Holiday Detector

Tinker & Rasor APS High-Voltage Holiday Detector is a stick-type pinhole detector featuring pulsed DC output ranging from 800 to 35,000 volts. Trigger-release safety-switch instantly shuts the instrument down, eliminating power-on when unattended. Audible and visual pinhole indicators, weather and dust-sealed voltage selector, high and low voltage ranges are key features of the Tinker & Rasor APS Porosity Detector.


Tinker & Rasor APS Stick-Type High-Voltage Porosity Detector offers a variety of safety and versatility features to work for detection of pinholes or bubbles in linings and coatings on conductive substrates including concrete, such as pipelines, tanks, bridges and marine vessels.

Regulated, pulsed DC output ranges from 800 to 35,000 volts in two voltage ranges:  Low: 800 – 8000 v, and High: 3500 -35,000 v.  LCD voltmeter displays output in kV units. The voltage selection switch is weather- and dust-sealed by a removable screw cap (screwdriver supplied). Voltage setting is ‘memorized’ and held through instrument shut-down and power-on, until manually changed by inspector.

T & R APS Holiday Detector features a trigger-release Safety Switch* that instantly shuts power to the instrument upon release. The handle must be held down on the grip to operate; immediate shut-down when handle is released means the detector cannot be left ‘on’ when unattended.

Alarms include ‘super bright’ LED indication of pinhole which is easily seen in bright daylight, and a volume-adjustable audible alarm that can be heard in most coatings inspection environments.

Large, push-button controls and an angled handle with open grip mean the Tinker & Rasor APS comfortably accommodates large and/or gloved hands. The instrument cover is impenetrable by water. The APS High-voltage holiday detector is compatible with accessories and components of AP/S1 & AP/S2.
