Resistivity-induced polarization is a method that used to identify underground layers by resistivity. In this study, a resistivity induced polarization receiver/transmitter device was designed using the CCS C programming language and tested. The most outstanding feature of the implemented system is that the connection between receiver and the transmitter were enabled by wireless bluetooth. The data obtained this system were sent to a PC via wireless bluetooth connection and the data were analyzed after being processed by a program in C# language. The system has 55 volt, 110 volt, 220 volt output amplitudes, as director or alternating current. The frequency of the current used in the system is 0.1 Hz, 0.3 Hz, 1 Hz, and 3 Hz, and the signals follow the square wave amplitude form. The system was desingned to be user-friendly by LCD monitors, which were used to detect the amplitude and frequency of the current sent to the underground.
