EMP Electro Magnetic Pulse


laser pointers

EMP stands for electromagnetic pulse. It can be produced by a nuclear detonation, a lightning discharge or any type of a discharge that can take on a form of a pulse with a fast rise time. Obviously a nuclear air burst produces EMP by releasing intense gamma ray radiation into the Earth's magnetic field where now a myriad of radio frequencies is generated due to the fast rise time and other Fourier properties. These type of pulses Occur and cause wide spread damage to many electronic circuits. computers and similar circuits are very vulnerable to this type of energy as it does not take many volts applied across the junctions of these high-speed circuits to disrupt their operation. When the EMP pulse contacts the printed circuitry of the system, a standing wave of voltage is produced and damages the circuitry components causing destruction.

A lightning discharge can be characterized as a natural manifestation of an EMP pulse. It is in the form of a double exponential pulse where the risetime is very fast and the decay time is much slower. The discharge current of a lightning bolt could be close to a mega Amp. This combined with the risetime of the current pulse can cause damage as we all well know. The overall charge of a lightning bolt is usually in from 1 to 50 coulombs. The discharge voltage being in the hundreds of thousands creates an energy pulse in the megajoules. Joules = coulombs times voltage.

A low powered electromagnetic pulse can be made by discharging an ultralow inductance high voltage capacitor into a low inductance antenna.

Brief Overview on EMPs

EMP 1 - EMP/HERF/Shock Pulse Generator

EMP1-D - Downloadable Plans ... $10.00
Shock wave generators are capable of producing focused acoustic or electromagnetic energy that can break up objects such as kidney stones and other similar materials. EMP generators can produce pulses of electromagnetic energy that can destroy the sensitive electronics in computers and microprocessors. Destabilized LCR circuits can produce multi megawatt pulses by using an explosive wire disruptive switch. These high power pulses can be coupled "with difficulty" into antennas, conic sections, horns etc for very directional effects. Research is currently being undertaken to disable vehicles thus avoiding dangerous high speed chases. The trick is to generate a high enough power pulse to fry the electronic control processor modules without creating collateral damage to unintended targets. This could be a lot simpler if the vehicle was covered in plastic or fiber glass rather than metal. The shielding of the metal body offers a challenge to the researcher to develop a practical system. A system could be built that could do this but would be costly, large and produce collateral damage to friendly targets.

EMPMARXGUN - Electromagnetic EMP Blaster Gun, Gen II



A 10-stage Marx generator built of ten 10nf per stage provides 1nf of erected capacitance. This section is built into a pressure chamber of 210mm diameter & 2500mm length. The Marx generator is fed by a three-stage high voltage power supply with an input of 230 volts 50/60Hz. This D.C. to D.C. converter generates 0 to 20kV DC which is fed to the Marx input for charging the capacitors.

The Marx output of 90kV to 160kV pulse is fed to a peaking capacitor of 30pf to 180pf for shaping the pulse. The output peaking gap is fixed to shape the pulse further. The Marx now charges the output capacitor. This capacitor (coaxial oil filled capacitor) discharges into the load through the peaking gap. The entire system is coaxial made further enhancing the effectiveness.

ENPROBE10 - Energy Probe

Radiant Energy Probe and E-Field Detector

Probe detects E fields produced by electrical activity and other unknown anomalies. Unit uses no batteries or other sources of power. Unit can also provide a three from TESLA coils and similar devices. This probe is used by paranormal researchers as seen on some TV shows.

This device is for detecting strong E fields, like those from plasma globes, tesla coils, ion generators, etc. It is not intended for weak E fields, like those generated by many household items. If you need something to detect household or weaker energy fields, we suggest our IOD40.

The apparatus is electrically balanced and designed in the shape of a wand with a 2 inch brass sphere at its detecting end. The handle is 1” OD x 9” of treated polycarbonate with plated metallic tape wrapped around the ends. A red neon indicator lamp (a standard bulb that should last for years, but can easily be replaced if needed) flashes upon detection and increases as you get closer to the source, or if the source gets stronger.

Probe detects:

  • Potential free energy field locations
  • Electric fields produced by ions sources
  • Dangerous static charges
  • Paranormal and UFO energy fields
  • High frequency radiation
  • Weather phenomena lightning
  • High voltage leakage points
  • Plotting a three dimensional footprint of E-fields of HV sources
  • Detects strange and otherwise unidentifiable sources

This handy unit is easy to use and can check the validity of output energy of various healing machines and other radiating products. It is a must-have product for those working in these energy fields.
