The Spectral Detector
EMF/Infrared Camera Shutter Trigger
As we all know paranormal investigations provide a unique problem when it comes to evidence. The main goal of paranormal research is to find proof of the supernatural. It is not simply enough to have an experience; it is necessary to document it. With the flood of paranormal sensing gadgets becoming hard to stem, a new product has recently made its debut. The Spectral Detector is a new device that will allow investigators to more thoroughly document paranormal investigations. When investigating a site paranormal researchers often rely on the monitoring of electromagnetic fields for change. It is believed that spirits are made up of energy that manipulates the earth’s magnetic field. Researchers also believe that fluctuating electromagnetic fields that seem to float around a space can be indicative of paranormal activity.
The Spectral Detector attaches to most DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras and will trigger the camera when there is a fluctuation in electromagnetic or passive infrared (thermal) fields. The trigger has a sensitivity adjustment that can be changed to account for high baseline electromagnetic readings that can be encountered at a site. While this may not seem to be of consequence to the layperson, the benefits to the paranormal field will be great. The Spectral Detector finally allows a still camera to stand alone in a location to document while freeing the researcher to investigate other places.
The technical side of the Spectral Detector is fairly straight-forward. To put it simply, the trigger fires your camera whenever a large enough fluctuation in electromagnetic fields is sensed. The trigger uses a Linear Ratiometric Hall Effect sensor to detect fluctuations in electromagnetic fields. When there is a change beyond what would normally be associated with normal geophysical changes (about 0.08 mG/s) the Spectral Detector tells the camera to take a picture. The passive infrared sensor works in a similar fashion, but triggers the camera when changes in temperature are recorded. Paranormal investigators throughout the world use both EMF and thermal sensing technologies in their investigations and the Spectral Detector now allows for them to document these changes.
