Protecting your home or shop from the threat of EMP is critical. Having the correct components installed to protect your home or shop is just as critical. The best way we know to do that is by taking 3 simple steps highlighted below. The FIRSTSURGE PRO 140 KA fulfills one of the most important steps, which is having a quality whole-house surge protection device. In the past we have recommended purchasing one from a selection of online retailers but we kept receiving questions as to which ones to trust, complaints that they were difficult to find and questions as to what was a good price. We have now decided to carry the FIRSTSURGE PRO 140 KA so that it is always in stock and at a fair price and can be purchased from a single source along with your Whole-House Ferrites and Broadband Ferrites.
How to Protect your Home from an EMP or Solar CME
Please watch the video below for a more complete understanding of how to protect your home from an EMP or CME.
As you can see from the video, I recommend a three-step approach to home protection.
Step 1: Install custom high-saturation ferrites over your incoming power wires.Normal ferrites will not work well due to current saturation. The ferrites sold here are each individually modified to increase their saturation levels, allowing them to suppress high-frequency energy under higher currents.Note: Most homes requirethree ferrites(for Line 1, Line 2, and a shared Neutral/Ground). Some homes may have four wires and therefore, would need four ferrites (Line 1, Line 2, Neutral, and Ground).Order now while in stock.
Typical installation shown below. Always consult manufacturers instructions, and have a professional electrician do the installation for safety. Please note that ferrites tend to make a humming or buzzing noise when high currents flow through them.
Step 2: Install a quality whole-house surge protection device. Recommended device: Siemens FirstSurge140 (FS140). Installation should be done by a licensed electrician.
Step 3. Install smaller broadband ferrites around power cords of sensitive electronics. We sell a number of different sizes, as well as some bundles.
Watch the video below for tips on installation of the ferrites.
