Magnetic Detectors & Sensors Circuits

Electromagnetic Field Detector #2: This circuit is sensitive to low frequency electromagnetic radiation and will detect for example hidden wiring or the field that encompasses a transformer. Pickup is by a radial type inductor, used as a probe which responds well to low frequency changing magnetic and electric fields. Ordinary headphones are used to for detection. The field that surrounds a transformer is heard as a50 or 60Hz buzz.  

Geomagnetic field detector:

Magnetic Gun: When optimally tuned, it will propel a small slug about 1.5 metres high, or 2.5 metres horizontally
