Finished the prototype of my paranormal geophone

by on Nov.16, 2010, under Equipment

I was excited to finish my version of the paranormal geophone. The first prototype used a smaller circuit board, which in turn added more wires to connect the LEDs. Not ideal. The second prototype used a larger circuit board where the LEDs were connected directly. This worked brilliantly, and created a very clean build.

The paranormal team I’m affiliated (TSI – Tortured Souls Investigation) had an investigation over the weekend, and this would be a great test for my geophones. Both worked well, both were quite sensitive and did the job. Nothing conclusive in relation with the geophone and the investigation though (overall it was a quiet night).

The geophone that I’ve put together have some cool features. Number one, they’re built in a aluminum enclosure, so they’re built to last. Number two, I used super bright LEDs that really light up when there is seismic activity. I also have the option of battery power or powered by adapter which is handy if batteries are drained. I’ve included the sensitivity knob which uses a high quality potentiometer with a cool looking ‘chicken head’ knob. Also LED power light so you know it’s on.. when it’s on.

I’ll have some photos up soon!
