I'm in the deep sunny south … Mississippi
If you're anywhere close, please speak up and say Hello.
Basically, the home model protects the house wiring and ‘anything plugged in to power'. Stand alone devices that are not plugged in are a different story however. They would have to be protected differently.
The vehicle model protects the entire vehicles electrical system (which the computer is part of). They even have an RV model that just plugs into an AC outlet in the RV to protect the entire RV electrical system.
It's all about being able to grab any escalation in power and “immediately” shunt it away before it can affect anything. They have been tested at more than double the military standard. You might also note that military standard protection has been found to be only good for “one' strike. It then is basically destroyed. EMP Shield remains viable and keeps protecting against multiple strikes. I've also been impressed as to how and why it was engineered.
Bottom Line … Capability to shunt excess power so fast that it is handled before anything can be affected is the key. The documentation of the testing is available for personal research.
As I mentioned in the first post, this doesn't pertain to all gear. But home/solar/vehicle protection is something we should definitely be concerned with.
While this may not pertain to “all gear” …
Although I'm a retired professional in the electrical/electronics field, I rarely get into a discussion about EMP protection.
I did, however, want to make everyone aware of a company that offers the World’s first EMP protection technology for an entire home and vehicle tested to military and UL 1449 standards from ETL. They are also now working with DHS and the Defense Department. You can find more information about EMP/CME's on their website.
I have no association with this company other than asking them questions. So, apologies if this sounds like an infomercial … but …
Their devices have been military tested and proven to defend against the E1, E2, and E3 phases of an electromagnetic pulse.
Their “EMP Shield” for the home is designed to protect an entire home from lightning, solar flare (coronal mass ejection), power surges, and an electromagnetic pulse.
You can find them at: EMPSHIELD dot COM
Going with today's information being propagated … all my antique vehicles are safe from being disabled by an EMP. Then why am I putting an EMP shield on each one?
(Side Note: Jeff, this might be someone worth talking to and asking if they'd do a video with/for you about EMP protection.)
