Positive Ion Low Frequency Energy Resonator.
Goal of the Pilfer
We wanted to create an environment that is “charged.”
Designed to emit positive ions pulsed at a very low frequency this unit creates a series of ringing sounds produced by the small coil on the discharge side of the electrodes. Hence the device does double duty, producing a series of rhythmic low frequencies –and- charging the environment around the device at the same time.
How the P.I.L.F.E.R. device functions:
The 3-coil system is powered by a custom built micro-controller board.
The device consists of the power supply pictured below in the background, a long power cable and the main chamber.
Sound is produced by the electrical arc and the small coil rings. CAUTION: Devices like this can cause serious electrical shocks.
The power system needed to be portable so we constructed a 24v DC power pack with an emergency power switch as a fail safe.
How the Ghost Adventures Pilfer device was made:
The Pilfer took over 200 hours of build time to design, configure, test and refine. This build used a lot of laser cut components, 3d printed parts and Hand built electronics
The interior chamber had to be wide enough to hold the electronics and the fan to cool and force the air flow through the main chamber. Each coil produces ~120,ooo volts fired in sequence and precisely controlled to create the three frequency outputs. It took several attempts to tune the coils chamber length and diameter correctly.
The electronics were adjusted to create the pulsed arcs with out being too large or small, the key to this device was exacting the timing and distances.
