The electro magnetic theory of the paranormal is that supposedly a ghost/spirit
gives off an electro magnetic field which can be detected by Electro Magnetic Field
Nearly everything in nature, both alive and inanimate, emit an electromagnetic
field. And many man-made devices emit a very strong electromagnetic field such
electrical outlets and fuse boxes, computers, electrical wiring, television sets, air
conditioning units, appliances and much more. Most of these electrical sources
will give off high EMF readings as part of their normal operation.
The units of measure
most often used for EMF in the U.S.A. is called
milligaus (mg). In Europe the commonly used unit of measure for EMF is the
milliTesla (mt) (named after the famed scientist/investor Nicolas Tesla who experimented
greatly with electricity). 1 Tesla = 10,000 Gauss.
A paranormal occurrence or ghost may give off milligaus
readings in the range of 1.5mg to about 6mg depending on the EMF meter you use.
If you get a paranormal reading, the reading should not be a steady.
Steady/constant readings are usually artificially created. You may
have to move around to see where the reading or ghost may be taking you.
is a list of the EMF meters used by Long Island Paranormal Investigators.
This is basically the cheapest kind of EMF meter you
will find. This does not give readings in milligaus but it the needle
points north due to the magnetic north pole. If you come across paranormal
activity the compass may start to point in the direction in which the object
is located in, which may not be north. That is why when using a compass it is
important to know what direction north is. Also if the compass starts to
spin around this may also be paranormal activity.
The use of a compass for ghost investigations
dates back to at least the 1800's. It's one of the oldest paranormal
investigation tools still used by paranormal investigators throughout the
world today. With no batteries to be drained and no sensitive electronic
circuits it remains a simple but highly effective tool.
EMF Multidetekor II
meters are very basic to use. They use LED lights with milligaus readings.
The green lights mean normal. The yellow lights mean caution or paranormal
activity. The red lights mean danger or high EMF readout. Paranormal
activity will occur in the yellow lights, which is usually 2mg to 6mg. The
EMF electro sensor is basic. You just point and click to get readings. The
EMF Multidetekor II has different settings on it. There are distance settings as well as sensitivity settings.
EMF Electro Sensor
Digital EMF Meter
The digital EMF
meter is one of the best EMF meters to use in the paranormal investigation field
because this meter gives a precise digital readout of the milligaus readings. Paranormal activity may occur at 1.5mg to 6mg for this meter. You want to also
look for sudden spikes even if there is a low reading, because it may be the
trail of what you are trying to find.
Digital EMF meters come in two styles: Single-axis and
Tri-Field. A single axis meter (as the one shown to the left) only detects EMF
fields that cross the meter at a right angle (90 degrees) as the large white
arrow on the face of the meter shows. Tri-Field meters detect EMF fields in all
3 dimensions at the same time. They are, however, much more expensive.
EMF Cell Sensor
The EMF Cell
Sensor is a little harder to use. This meter has a analog readout. This meter
also has a sensitivity control, though overall it is a very sensitive instrument
(it was designed for the intended us of detecting the strength of cell
phone signals). It will also beep and glow red when there is a
strong EMF reading. Paranormal activity readings occur at 1.5mg to 4mg. If
this meter max's out then the field is to strong to be paranormal and it is
probably electrical outlets, power lines, computers, appliances, etc.
Paranormal activity may also make the needle on this meter move back and
forth. This type of EMF meter requires the use of the external probe (as
pictured on the right side of the meter) and is useless without it.
K2 (KII, K-II,K-2) EMF
K2/K-II EMF Meter Demo
The K2 (KII, K-II, K-2) EMF meter is another popular EMF tool, although not
one used by LIPI. In theory an
entity can interact with investigators by making the meter's
LED lights jump in response to questions.
Update September 2007: Long Island Paranormal Investigators is
presently conducting a study of the K-2 meter as compared to the other EMF
meters LIPI uses. The purpose of the study is to determine any
evidence of the claims that a ghost/entity can make the LED lights on
the K2 meter move specifically in response to questions. At the
same time observing if other EMF meters do or don't record any changes.
