The names of each part of the Proton Pack were invented by a number of fans in 1999. A group was created with a number of knowledgable Ghostbusters Fans at the time. They included Norm Gagnon, Mike Neal, Wes Martin, AJ Quick, CPU64, & El among a few others.

Although the fictional part names were invented by this group, several pieces carry the names of the actual parts used on the packs. These include the ribbon cable, the Clippard valves, the heatsink, and the Legris elbow. Another part, the cyclotron, uses the name of a real piece of scientific equipment. However, a real cyclotron would be much too large to carry on one's back.

This diagram mentions a few of the part names:
