To Better understand how this device works, and what it actually detects, you will need to understand a little about the Science behind it. PARTS OF AN ATOM In the middle of each atom is a "nucleus." The nucleus contains two kinds of tiny particles, called protons and neutrons. Orbiting around the nucleus are even smaller particles called electrons. Protons, neutrons and electrons are very different from each other. They have their own properties, or characteristics. One of these properties is called an electrical charge. Protons have what we call a "positive" (+) charge. Electrons have a "negative" (-) charge. Neutrons have no charge, they are neutral. The charge of one proton is equal in strength to the charge of one electron. When the number of protons in an atom equals the number of electrons, the atom itself has no overall charge, it is neutral. The protons and neutrons in the nucleus are held together very tightly. Normally the nucleus does not change. But some of the outer electrons are held very loosely. They can move from one atom to another. An atom that looses electrons has more positive charges (protons) than negative charges (electrons). It is positively charged. An atom that gains electrons has more negative than positive particles. It has a negative charge. A charged atom is called an "ion." With this understanding, Static electricity is created by an imbalance of Positive and Negative Charges on the surface of some object or material.
Static Electricity can consist of extremely high voltage, this device can sense those high-voltage electrically charged objects at a great distance at a detection sensitivity as low as 500mV. Electro-static is usually created when materials are pulled apart or rubbed together. Basically, it is the imbalance between (+) positive and (-) negative particles on these objects or surfaces. Although the atoms on these surfaces are always full of charges, they become "electrified" whenever their pre-existing + and - charges are not equal. Some typical examples would be wool, plastic, or even the soles of your shoes as you walk across the carpet. This process causes positive (+) charges to collect on one material and negative (-) Charges on the other surface. An e-field Pod can be compared to a magnetic field, except that it's electrical in nature. Another way of looking at it is that an e-field is a voltage without a current, and whenever you have pure voltage, then you will have a pure electric field with no magnetism involved.
Keep in mind that during use, Static electricity is formed much better when the air is dry or the humidity is low. The E-field Pod can detect static up to several feet when the air is very dry. When the air is humid, water molecules can collect on the surface of various materials and this can prevent the buildup of electrical charges and minimize the detection range considerably. The E-Pods simply detect the presence of the E-Field around the static, it does not measure the Static Charge. You would need a very expensive Electrostatic voltmeter for that. How to Use the E-Pod Insert a 9 Vdc Alkaline battery into the base of the E-Pod and extend the mini telescopic antenna. Turn on the E-Pod toggle switch and place the unit on a table or desk. The light may or may not be illuminated at this time, it really depends on the “+” or “-” static charge around the E-Pod at the time. With all three lights activated "ON", Stand about 6 feet away from the device and take a plastic pen or comb and rub it in your hair a few times. Now take the pen or comb and move it slowly toward the E-Pod-AMP device. The comb or pen should have a negative “-” charge on it, which will make the GREEN light turn OFF. Move closer and the BLUE light will turn OFF. When you get within a few inches of the device, the RED light will turn OFF. You will notice that the lights will begin to dim and then go out completely as the pen gets closer to each detection field. Move the pen or comb away, and the lights will turn back ON and glow bright again. Depending on the humidity and other factors, the E-Pod-AMP can easily detect a static charge up to 12 feet away. Note: With a Negative charged condition, the lights will remain ON and as a charged object slowly approaches the E-Pod-AMP, the GREEN, BLUE and RED lights will begin to dim in relationship to the e-field strength and proximity to the static source. Eventually all of the the lights will go off when the charge is within a few inches of the E-Pod. The lights will slowly come back on again when the charged object moves away from the E-Pod-AMP. Note: With a Positive charged condition, the light will remain OFF and as a charged object gets close to the E-Pod, the light will come on. It then turns OFF when the charged object is removed. Important: The E-field Pod Amplified 3-Zone Device has been designed to assist a Paranormal Investigator make an informed decision based on EMF and Electro-Static evidence collected during an investigation. When you are performing your investigation, team members will often refer to the “hair” standing up on their arms or the back of their neck. This added feature can help to detect this invisible E-field that causes this condition. When using this device, you want to look for any unusual behavior, fluctuation or pattern with the light turning ON to OFF or OFF to ON. Especially if it happens more than once.
