A device for detecting metal with sparking electrosurgical instruments contains a metal detector, which decides, on the basis of the current (and the voltage) delivered to the instrument, whether a spark originating from the instrument contacts biological tissue or a metal part. This is preferably implemented by determining the component of the current that is inconsistent with a linear equivalent circuit.
