The EMP Shield home model offers military tested next generation surge protection that will protect your home against electromagnetic pulses (EMP E1, E2, and E3), coronal mass ejections (solar flares), lightning, and all forms of power surges.
EMPShop is proud to have partnered up with EMP Shield in the US to provide this unique protective product for New Zealand. EMP protection also available for 12v vehicles and solar sytems.
The need for EMP protection for the home after an unexpected event is increasing through escalating current events, wild weather causing issues to massive solar flares. These are very real risks we face, with power cuts and surges becoming more common. In recent times power surges have disabled parts of the US power grid. Not too long ago a situation called the 'Carrington Event' had electrical systems all over Europe and North America fail due to a massive geomagnetic storm which are also called solar flares or coronal mass ejections. Even Starlink satellites have not been immune as geomagnetic storms have also affected the satellite constellations.
How Does EMP Shield Work?
EMP Shield will protect all the electronics and equipment connected to your electrical system. This is accomplished by shunting (shorting) the over voltage coming in from the grid and the induced voltage that is collected within your home.
Whether the source of electrons are from within your home or coming into your electrical system from outside the home (the grid), the EMP Shield will see the surge and protect your electrical system. This technology reacts in less than 1 billionth of a second. Since the shunting is completed incredibly fast, the over voltage is drained away from the equipment before the voltage can rise high enough to damage any equipment. This new technology is called SightSpeed™.

EMP Shield - Home Protection
What is an EMP Shield?
The EMP Shield is electromagnetic pulse, Solar Flare, and lightning protection system designed to exceed the requirements of MIL-STD-188-125-1 for shunting over-voltage spikes.
EMP Shield™ is the World’s only tested and approved EMP protection technology for an entire electrical system.
Built to exceed military standards (MIL-STD-188-125-1), EMP Shield begins pulling excess electricity from the electrical system in less than 500 trillionths of a second.
EMP Shield is designed to protect an entire home from Lightning, CME (coronal mass ejection, power surges, and an EMP (electromagnetic pulse). Proven and tested at Keystone Compliance, a Federally approved Department of Defense (DOD) testing facility, Our EMP Shield was struck with over 40x EMP strikes with no impact to the device.
MIL-STD-188-125-1 requires that the over-voltage spike from the E1 spike begin shunting 5,000 Amps within 20 nanoseconds. All EMP Shield models start shunting over voltage in 500 trillionths of a second. EMP Shield also designed to continue protecting through the expected durations of the E2 and E3 spikes produced by a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse.
EMP Shield has also been tested to all other military EMP Standards. Our devices are also UL 1449 compliant and have been tested at Intertek. See below for all military certified testing.
How Does EMP Shield Work?
The EMP Shield can see and protect all the electronics and equipment connected to your electrical system.
This is accomplished by shunting (shorting) the over voltage coming in from the Grid and the voltage surges that are collected within your home.
Whether the electrons are collected within your home or are attempting to come into your electrical system from outside the home (the grid), the EMP Shield will see the surge and protect your electrical system. Since the shunting is completed incredibly fast (500 trillionths of a second), the over voltage is pulled away from the equipment before the voltage can rise high enough to damage any equipment. We call this new technology SightSpeed™ and it ensures no heat is generated within the electrical system which protects all electronics connect to the system.
What is an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)?
A nuclear EMP is defined as having 3 distinct pulses of voltage/current. The E1 pulse is caused by the gamma rays released during the nuclear reaction. The Gamma rays interact with the electrons and the nucleus of the atoms that make up the atmosphere, and this interaction results in freeing electrons from their atoms. The free electrons ionize the atmosphere (ionization results in electron flow), which can be seen as the flow of electricity through anything that acts as an antenna. All of the wires that make up our nations’ electrical grid make an excellent antenna, which will produce an over-voltage condition throughout the affected area. For an optimally positioned detonation (approximately 300 miles high and over the center of the US), the entire nation will be affected by the E1 pulse. The E1 pulse starts at the time of the detonation of the weapon and continues until 1 microsecond after the detonation.
The E-2 pulse starts at 1 microsecond and continues until approximately 1 second after the detonation. The E-2 pulse is caused by the inelastic scattering (matter bouncing off other matter) of the matter from the nuclear weapon interacting with the matter that makes up the atmosphere continuing to ionize the atmosphere.
The E-3 pulse starts at approximately 1 second after the detonation and can continue for several minutes. The E-3 pulse is caused by the nuclear detonation distorting the earth’s geomagnetic structure, and then its reconfiguration. As the magnetic lines are pushed out of configuration and then come back into normal configuration, electricity is generated, and flows through the atmosphere until it contacts an antenna (wires).
The antenna that is most affected will be the nation’s power grid, but all arrays of wiring (even in your house) will act as large or small antennas and will produce the flow of electricity and over-voltage conditions.
Will the EMP Shield work on solar power systems?
Yes. There many solar system models all specific to your systems maximum input voltages.
Is the EMP Shield hard to install?
No – We recommend you have it installed by a licensed electrician and/or used in accordance with electrical codes and regulations. However, it is very simple to install and most installations take 15 minutes or less.
