The Proton Pack

The Proton Pack, designed by Dr. Egon Spengler, is a man-portable particle accelerator system that is used to create a charged particle beam – composed of protons – that is fired by the proton gun (also referred to as the “neutrona wand”. Described as a “positron collider”, it functions by colliding high-energy positrons to generate its proton beam. The beam allows a ghostbuster to contain and hold negatively charged ectoplasmic entities. This containment ability allows the wielder to position a ghost above a trap for capture.

P.K.E. Meter

The full name of the device is a Psychokinetic Energy Meter, so named because its function is to detect the amounts of said energy and to direct the user to its location. The design of the device is a small screen, mounted on a handle, which has a pair of sensor ‘wings’ protruding from either side. These wings have lights along their length, and will flash and extend as the meter closes in on the source of a P.K.E. signature. Much like a metaphysical Dowsing Rod, the meter will begin to buzz more and more in response to approaching a source of P.K. Energy. Once at the source of the energy, the wings will extend to their fullest length and the meter will buzz noticeably at a higher pitch.
