Equipment Rental

Global Polygraph Network now offers for rent two vintage (circa 1970's) polygraph instruments.

non-functioning unit Equipment

Instrument #1 is a fully functional polygraph, but does not undergo regular component testing or calibration. These units are delicate antiques, and the impacts and vibrations from shipping may affect the functionality of this unit. Due to lack of calibration, this unit is not to be used as a lie detection tool and should not be used for anything other than demonstration purposes or visual effect. If operated according to the included instructions, the unit will APPEAR to be a functioning polygraph instrument, used from the 1970’s to 2000. This unit is ideal for television shows, documentaries and re-enactments which require a polygraph to be operated on camera. Rental rate is $250.00 per day or $1,000.00 per week, whichever is less, plus shipping and insurance.

Instrument #2 is a non-functioning unit, so we offer this unit only for visual effect or display purposes. This unit is ideal for use as a prop or static display. Rental rate is $125.00 per day or $500.00 per week, whichever is less, plus shipping and insurance.

If you are seeking a polygraph unit to use for actual lie detection purposes, you have the option of either purchasing a new or used unit (see our Equipment page) or hiring an examiner to provide, accompany and operate their own equipment – email us for pricing.

Instrument #1 will be accompanied by operating instructions which the customer agrees to read and follow. We anticipate that it will take an average person 4 to 8 hours to learn how to operate the unit. The customer agrees to be responsible for any damage caused to the polygraph by anyone’s failure to follow the included operating instructions during the rental period. GPN will ship so that unit arrives as close to the “needed by” date as possible, but GPN can not guarantee an exact delivery date due to shipper variables. If you must have the unit for a specific date, we suggest that you request the unit be delivered at least 24 hours before you actually need it.

Note: There is a minimum rental period of two (2) days. The rental period begins on the day the unit arrives at the customer’s designated address and ends on the day the unit is shipped back to Global, regardless of the amount of usage. We do not ship outside the continental United States.
