The equipment listings below are recommended items that can be used in the research of paranormal phenomena. Many of these items appeared in the Ghost Hunter's Guidebook by Troy Taylor and we offer several others that can also be used for paranormal investigation. EMF Detection Meters are used to seek out disruptions in the natural magnetic field of locations, hopefully providing credible evidence of paranormal activity. However, the equipment can also be influenced by things that aren't supernatural. You have to learn what the readings on the equipment mean and which readings are false and caused by natural sources --- and which ones are the real thing. It takes practice to use the meters properly! NEVER try to go out on an investigation if you don't know how to use and read your equipment properly. (For instructions on proper use of the EMF meters, see the Ghost Hunter's Guidebook and Craig Telesha's book on using technology for investigations, entitled Strange Frequencies.

TRI-FIELD NATURAL EM METER.....  The personally recommended meter of researcher TROY TAYLOR! One of the most sensitive devices on the market and one of the most complex. It is not always recommended for beginners and is so sensitive that it can even pick up the fields of living persons. It was originally designed to read the activity of geo-magnetic storms so it can be delicate to carry around in an investigation. The best use for it is to place it in a stationary location and allow it to pick up movement in the extended range around it. It can also be used as a hand-held device but must be used carefully. Features a continuous analog reading and a SUM setting that allows it to pick up electric and magnetic fields at the same time. Signals any changes in field with an audio alarm. Highly recommended for the experienced ghost hunter!
Only $199.95     

TRI-FIELD METER:  This is our Best Selling Basic  Meter! This device combines magnetic and electric readings in one package for fast and accurate measurements. It has been adapted for paranormal research for several years and can be used by hand in taking readings of locations. In addition, this newly upgraded device is more sensitive than ever before! Features a continuous analog reading and a much higher sensitivity than ordinary meters... much easier to use than other Tri-Field Meters, it also features the options to have it upgraded by the manufacturer to include a light and audio signal. Highly recommended for the beginning ghost hunter over cheaper meters!   Only $149.95   

PERSONAL EMF ALARM: Just like the acclaimed TriField Meter, this  has the addition of an audible alarm (that works for electric, magnetic, or RF) and you can set the alarm threshold at any level you want.  The unit can be left unattended and it will alert you to the presence of a  field above the threshold so you don't have to stare at the meter or you  an even be in another room. Note that the threshold can be set to screen out any background EMF. As an alternative, and array of these meters can  be set out over an area and the movement of a field can be tracked as the  various meters sound their alarms. Remember, this is a 3-axis meter, so you don't miss important information just because the meter was not aligned properly. The analog scale tracks all three fields and is the new essential item for any paranormal investigator's kit!  



MAG-TEMP: Simultaneous EMF and Temperature Readout with Illuminated Display ! Easy to use and versatile meter gives you the chance to measure EMF readings and temperature with one device. It also gives you a wealth of information, and lots of options. Mag-Temp offers both single axis AC Magnetic field measurement and real-time air temperature readings. The display illumination is so bright, you can almost use it to find your way in dark areas, although it can be used with the light on or off. The read-out is in high resolution and offers a fast response. A basic 1-inch k-type thermocouple is included and it can be used with a variety of commercially available thermocouple probes for extended temperature ranges. Operates with a 9-volt battery. This is a step-up from the meter featured below and while slightly more in cost, is highly recommended and should be a standard tool in every ghost hunter's kit. Only $109.95


EMF Hunter: Easy to use and versatile meter that combines EMF radiation readings and temperature in a compact design. Offers and easy-to-read LED indicator and sound, so it can be used in dark locations. The temperature probe on this device is external, on the end of a six-foot cable (included). This makes it ideal for testing locations in that any EMF and temperature changes are occurring in the same spot as the investigator. This device (like the IR thermometer with the Type K Probe and the Dual Pocket Thermometer -- see both below) makes any other type of temperature sensing device obsolete. This basic meter offers both in one unit and is essential for your tool kit. Only $69.95

Peak/Hold 2-Range Gaussmeter

Peak/Hold 2-Range Gaussmeter: Another easy to use meter and a low-cost, single axis device. This unit is comfortable in your hand and features an easy-to-read digital screen -- with some added options over other meters of this type. The "peak" feature allows the investigator to let the meter run over extended periods to identify the highest fields in the area. The "hold" feature holds the current read-out, making this a great device for large areas or when searching for the highest readings at a particular location. Only $99.95!  
Gauss Master (Recommended for Beginners!) GAUSSMASTER: This long-time favorite meter for beginning ghost hunters is back! The meter offers an easy-to-read analog scale, a unique built-in audio signal and an auto shut off switch when not picking up energy changes. It's hand-held, lightweight and easy to use in both light and dark locations.

IR THERMOMETER WITH TYPE K PROBE IR THERMOMETER WITH TYPE K PROBE: This is the ideal probe that has long been recommended by the AGS and is now finally available! Measures temperature remotely and, most importantly, locally! This unique item combines a high resolution IR non-contact thermometer for checking temps at a distance with a probe that measures air, surface or internal temperatures at the location of the meter. The local, type K probe not reads temperatures at the immediate location, it does so safely with a flexible probe so ghost hunters don't have to worry about hurting themselves in the dark! This unit also has a backlit screen and an adjustable high / low alarm which alerts the user when it exceeds programmed limits. Highly recommended! $129.95
Wireless 4 Zone Thermometer WIRELESS 4 ZONE THERMOMETER: Measure Local and Three Remote Temperatures at the same time! This is a great item when you want to monitor the air temperature at up to 4 different locations simultaneously. Base station is one location, and you get 3 remote sensors which you can place up to 80 feet away*. Unit displays time, temperature at base station, and one of the remote sensors. One button toggles display of all three remote sensors. Updates quickly. Displays in F or C and will record minimum and maximum temperatures. Great for ghost hunters in any location! Moderately priced at just $69.95  

*The maximum transmission range is 80 feet in a straight line (line of sight). Walls and obstructions can reduce transmission range by as much as 25-30 feet.

MONITOR 4: GEIGER COUNTER  This device measures Alpha, Beta, Gamma and X-ray radiation and like other devices of this type, searches for fluctuations in radiation which will point to a disturbance in spirit energy. Great for investigations with an easy to read analog meter, red light counter, audible indicator.. and all in a hand-held unit It can also be used to check background levels of radiation in a location and uses a Geiger Mueller tube with a thin mica window. Includes a 9-volt battery. $359.95    

ION DETECTOR: Unique in this price range, this hand-held ion detector possesses excellent sensitivity, is fully electrostatically shielded and can take accurate readings even under adverse conditions. This device can be adjusted to measure positive, or in paranormal investigation cases, negative ions separately. Much like with an electro-magnetic field detector, the ions in the air will measure a high disturbance when spirit energy is present. This device is great for investigations also because it is sensitive to natural effects like radiation, electrical storms and radon.... thus, is not easily disturbed by power outlets. It operates much in the same way as the Tri-Field Meter as it is not recommended for the beginner. Uses 2 9-volt batteries (included) $499.95     

PORTABLE INFRARED MOTION SENSOR: Passive infrared technology is used to detect motion and temperature changes in a controlled area, which is vital for not only protecting the integrity of an investigation and for anomalous motion. The device sounds when motion is detected and then produces a loud alarm if not deactivated. Highly recommended! The sensor offers a 110 degree horizontal view and a 20 degree vertical view as far as 30 feet from the unit. Operates on 2 standard AA batteries and can be switched on and off from 30 feet away with a remote device. Great for paranormal research! $19.95

For use during paranormal investigations! Researchers can now save on batteries by plugging in their meters to wall sockets and connecting the adaptor to the 9-volt battery outlets on the meter.
