EMF Reader

What is an EMF Reader?

An EMF reader is a device that measures electro-magnetic fields generated by AC or DC currents in its vicinity. There are different types of EMF readers: the single axis and the tri-axis. Single axis meters are more affordable than tri-axis, however, the tri-axis covers more dimensions at a time, thus completing a survey in a shorter amount of time.

A number of different objects can emit a magnetic reading. For example, pipes, wires, water sources and appliances will give off these readings. Our planet also generates its own magnetic field and the meter can even pick this up if there is a direct line of current. Typical readings in the home range between 9.0 and 30.0 on the meter. The closer to the object you are measuring, the higher the reading.

If an EMF reader can pick up many currents, why do investigators still like to use this tool?

Ghost hunters still like to use this tool because it is theorized that low range readings indicate the presence of a ghost. There is research that stated that it is scientifically impossible for a low EMF reading to occur naturally. That being said, when we get a reading in the range between 1.0 to 7.0, and we are not within range of an object that can give off a field, then we have successfully captured a paranormal presence on our meter.

However, since not much is known in the paranormal field and how to obtain evidence is even more obscure, researchers and scientists use this tool to test a theory, so to say. Since there has been evidence that the presence of a spirit can cause the meter to spike and that is why this tool is still used today and is popular among paranormal researchers.

How is this device used?

An investigator would turn on the device and start off by finding initial EMF readings of household items. These readings can then be documented for future "debunking" if need be. For example, if you are doing an investigation in a basement for a spirit presence and you catch a reading of 7.4, look around you. Are you within a range of an object that can give off a reading? If there is an appliance facing the meter, keep the meter still and walk straight ahead to see if the reading goes up. If the reading goes up, you have your culprit: the appliance.

Next, the investigator would do the secondary walkthrough, this time by looking for "out of the norm" measurements. Any spikes in the meter that are out of the norm can be declared a hot spot and will be used for futher investigation with other equipment in order to find any evidence.

As you can see, this tool is amazing for capturing magnetic evidence of spiritual activity. Just remember to test everything in the room you are investigating and debunk all of the readings you can so you can capture legit ghostly readings.
