OEC Converters

All of the illustrated devices would not be able to function properly were it not for the phenomenon of outpoint excitation conversion. Luckily, it is an easily produced and easily understood process. The devices in question are a standard lab model PRFT rig, a parallel field translator, and a standard three configuration determinator. The thing that these two common pieces of apparatus have in common is that they both require the use of an overbled Mollot cell.


Overbleeding is the simplest method of raising the gravity of a small Mollot cell without altering its Hartley rating. However, overbleeding also creates "phantom mass" readings, better known as "stelching," which must be smoothed out in order for either of these devices output to be in any way useful. This is where outpoint excitation conversion comes in.

Parallel Resonant Field Translator

The OEC is very simple in concept and construction; generally an alloy of Mercury, Cobalt and Boron granules is contained within an envelope with the "in" and U "out" terminals buried within the mass. The signal is conducted straight through while excess excitation is dephased by exposure to the Boron, thus resulting in a signal which has full gravity but has its outpoint excitation dephased or converted.
