The Highland Paranormal Group use a wide variety of equipment in our investigations into the paranormal, here is just some of them.
An EMF meter (or EMF detector) is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic fields. Most meters measure the electromagnetic radiation flux density (DC fields) or the change in an electromagnetic field over time (AC fields), essentially the same as a radio antenna, but with quite different detection characteristics.
IR Motion Detector
An electronic motion detector contains a motion sensor that transforms the detection of motion into an electric signal. This can be achieved by measuring optical or acoustical changes in the field of view. Most motion detectors can detect up to 15–25 meters (50–80 feet).
K-II EMF Meter
Electromagnetic fields, or EMFs, are emitted by electrical devices of all types. EMFs are everywhere, originating from appliances, cell phones, electrical wiring, and even the human body. EMF fluctuations have been associated with locations where unexplained phenomena have been reported, including alleged hauntings.
The K2 meter has uses as both a debunking tool, as well as a "Ghost Communication Tool". As a debunking tool, the K2 serves to show high EMFs generated by naturally occurring sources, such as power grids, or man-made electronics. These high emfs can effect humans by causing paranoia and hallucinations, explaining any potential hauntings. The meter has also found use as communication tool, where when questions are asked the meter will blip up, showing a potential response to the question. Used with control questions, to rule out rogue natural EMFs as the cause of those blips, this can be a great tool. Instantaneous response to EMF fluctuations & spikes.
P-SB7 Spirit Box ITC Research Device Franks Box
The P-SB7 is a mini size Spirit Box the size of an MP3 player. The P-SB7 made its premier debut on Ghost Adventures "LIVE" show from the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum on October 30, 2009. The P-SB7 provided responses to his questions in real time over a 40 minute segment of the show. When used by a properly trained individual, under certain circumstances, the P-SB7 will provide results similar that of an EVP recorder, but in real time. Since then, it has become very popular and can be seen frequently on Ghost Adventures and Psychic Kids. The P-SB7 utilizes a milli-second adjustable Forward or Reverse frequency "sweep" technique coupled with a proprietary high frequency synthetic noise or "white noise" distributed between frequency steps. The model offers an enhanced FM frequency sweep which includes an additional 119 new frequencies from 76MHz to 87.9MHz. No other Hack Box or Modified radio currently offers this. A seven step adjustable sweep rate provides user flexibility based on individual technique and session circumstances. There are two discreet audio outputs; (1) 15mW Earphone, and (1) 250mW Speaker. A bright EL back light display with manual ON/OFF select is ideal for viewing in the dark. The P-SB7 uses three "AAA" batteries. The P-SB7 is intended to be used by professional investigators to help promote the field of Paranormal ITC Research.
The device works in a similar fashion to the EMF meter by detecting changes in an electro magnetic field. The difference between the two though, is that an EMF meter detects changes in levels of background or natural magnetic field where as a REM pod- detects changes in the magnetic field it is generating. The idea is the ghosts or spirits passing through this field will have an effect and trigger an alarm within the unit. REM stands for Radiating electro Magnetism.
EMF Boo Bear
This EMF Bear is compromised of an EMF Meter which accurately detects electrical energy. It is thought that ghosts and spirits emit electrical energy, which this bear is built to detect in the same way that a Kii Meter works.
The EMF Bear is designed specifically for interacting with children spirits or the spirits of young children. The bear is highly sensitive, and is set off whenever it gets triggered by a spirit coming into close contact and touching it.
Seek Thermal Camera
Powerful and portable, the Seek Compact is a state-of-the art thermal imaging camera that connects directly to your smartphone. Using over 32,000 thermal pixels, Compact detects invisible infrared light and displays a visible heat signature on your phone.
With its wide 36° field of view, Compact is perfect for detecting paranormal cold/hot spots and spirits.
