Not to confused with Dimensional Inverter from The Real Ghostbusters

The Dimensional Inverter is a device invented by Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler to detect fallout from a dimensional breach. [1] [2]


In the wake of encounters with gods and demons like Gozer, The Collectors, and Tiamat, Egon and Ray built a device programmed to detect for any dimensional breaches. While the Ghostbusters were out capturing a troublesome Class 5 ghost, the Dimensional Inverter went off. After going over it with a KUD meter and checking the guys' notes, Kylie Griffin determined the device had detected a potential Class 7 on the East Side. When Janine Melnitz simply told the guys Kylie said a "big ping," Kylie got annoyed. The Ghostbusters drove and scanned, until they discovered Chi-You in the Emmanuel Baptist Church.


  • The Inverter was only described in the script as a "fully lit-up KIRBY-STYLE machine." [3]
