The present age of advanced technological development has made the life comfortable and resourceful. You can move from one corner of the world to the other part of the world in amazing time and can converse with the person sitting at a distance of thousand kilometers at lightning speed. Apart from all these developments, the technology has brought its own cons which are equally dreadful. One such weapon of destruction is EMP.
What is EMP?
Electromagnetic impulse is the short burst of energy which is powerful enough to destroy and disrupt all the circuits of the electronic apparatus and gadgets which comes in the range of these pulses. This burst of energy could be transformed in any of the four forms like electric field, magnetic field, electrical conduction and electromagnetic induction. Thus, the destruction which EMP can cause is wide and can disrupt the life of the modern city. In order to protect your gadgets from the effects of EMP you can keep the gadgets in the faraday cages. These cages are designed to protect the gadgets from the destruction of the Electromagnetic pulse.
What is faraday cage?
Faraday cage is the metallic enclosure which does not allow the electromagnetic impulse to break the enclosure. Faraday cage distributes the impulse of the energy over the metal shield thus weakening the force of the pulse and thus making the pulse not strong enough to enter the cage. So, the electronic equipments kept in the cage are protected from the negative effect of the EMP.
