Your electronic devices are at risk! 

  Electromagnetic pulses can destroy your sensitive electronic devices, whether it is from an intense solar flare that impacts earth directly or from a high altitude nuclear detonation, exposed electronic devices will get fried.

  The damaging effects from Electromagnetic Pulses, also known as EMP are not like electricity or static, but are invisible ionized charged particles passing through the air. Any electronic device that has an IC chip (integrated circuit) or processor is highly susceptible to these charged particles.

  Electric charges will build up and fry the chip making the item completely useless. A sealed metal container called a faraday cage is the only way to protect these devices. A faraday cage channels the charged particles around and away from the contents inside.

Personal Electronics Protector - PEP-12

  The PEP faraday cage is not the end-all protection. For example, you can store your cell phone in the PEP, but if the area you are in gets hit by an EMP, the cell towers will be distroyed and you won't be able to make a call anyway. Instead, use it to store replacement parts, like electronic control modules for your cars, hard drives for your computer, short-wave radios, memory cards, cameras and the like.

  But the PEP isn't just for protecting from EMP, but also protects from fire, water and impact damage. On top of all that, the internal locking cover helps to protect against theft.

    Nice faraday cage. I am just using medal trash cans. Layered it with cardboard and rubber. Would doing something like you are showing be something that would work better, or is this something you are working on at the moment. Very interesting concept.

    I have had my design (as well as a typical trash can setup) tested at a national EMP testing lab in Maryland. The PEP (Personal Electronics Protector) did 30x better in the tests. Are the items in your cage protected with anti-static bags/containers? Is your cage grounded properly? Will it stay together under abuse or high winds? Can you lock it? Can you track it if lost or stolen? Is it water-proof? All questions I addressed with this design.

    The tests revealed a couple problems with my initial design that I am working on to make it 100% effective against EMP. The 'screw on' lid leaked too much. When this issue is worked out and I've receive some feedback, it will be ready for production. I am thinking it will be priced around $75 for the PEP-12 (12 inch inside diameter).

    Your device is certainly more attractive than my grounded 55 gal drum lined with rubber mat! If your "screw on lid" leaks, have you tested it in the inverted position? Anything passing a screw on lid is microwave, or smaller, & really won't radiate upward from ground.

    Thanks. Where the screw on lid failed is when the cylinder was laying on it's side. Since this is a possible position for the PEP to be in, I decided it wasn't good enough. Back to the drawing board. What I was told by the engineers running the tests was that I needed a copper seal where the rim meets the lid. So I incorporated that suggestion, but realized that you really had to crank down the lid to get the seal and got worse each time I did it. Adding a compressible cushion just made it cumbersome.

    However, I feel I have the solution now. I will eliminate the course threads altogether and use 2 to 3 latches to secure the lid. Something like an ammo can or shopvac canister would have. Not only will this save money, it will be easier to remove the lid (and less wear and tear).

    Once I have the new latching lid, I'll send the unit off for another round of tests. Hopefully this time I get the 100% protection I am shooting for. At $8k per test, I am hopeful this will do the trick.

What is a Faraday cage? 

  A Faraday Cage (Shield) can be described as an enclosure created by conducting materials that blocks external electric fields (both static and non-static). These shields – cages can be used to protect different kinds of electronic equipment from electrostatic discharges. They don’t block magnetic fields like Earth’s magnetic field, but they can protect the interior from electromagnetic radiation coming from the outside.

  A Faraday cage can also block electric fields originating inside it. In fact, a typical microwave is an example of such an application. The structure of a microwave is made of a conducting material, while the door is usually a metal mesh screen. Since the holes in the screen are smaller than the wavelength of microwaves—generally defined as between one millimeter and one meter—the microwaves do not escape the enclosure.

  An EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) is created as a byproduct of a nuclear explosion. A nuclear blast at high altitude produces a highly charged, rising electromagnetic field called a HEMP (High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse). The Electro Magnetic Pulse has a damaging effect on all electronic equipment. Because of the high altitude the area of coverage is enormous.

  Yet another threat comes from so called 'E-Bombs'. These weapons convert explosive energy into microwave energy and produces a ramping charge similar to the one produced by a nuclear explosion. On a smaller scale but still destructive on a shorter range are High Energy Radio Frequency (HERF) weapons. These devices use a pulsed charge across a wide band of frequencies to disrupt electronics in the surrounding area.

Photon Waves

  The solution for electromagnetic protection is to use a shield that reroutes photon wave lines. Unlike electric field lines, photon wave lines must always return to their point of origin. Therefore, magnetic shielding does not attempt to stop magnetic field lines; rather, it attempts to divert them around an object. Materials that can be easily magnetized make good magnetic shields.

  While electrostatic waves are generated from stationary charges, magnetic fields are produced by moving charges. An electric current is a collection of moving charges, so magnetic waves are often caused by nearby electric currents. Both constant and slowly-varying magnetic fields can be a problem for some electronic devices.
