Vehicles are protected using three products: T.R.A.P.s, T.R.A.P.-Bs, and High-saturation Car Ferrites
The T.R.A.P.™ Transient Reducing Auxiliary Plug is a multi-purpose transient protection device. Each plug contains a 5,000-watt transient voltage suppression device with a turn on time under 1 picosecond. The T.R.A.P.™ is easy to install – just plug the device into the 12-Volt auxiliary receptacle ( cigarette lighter). The device is 3″ long, so please ensure there is room to insert the plug.
The T.R.A.P.™-B contains the same 5,000-watt transient voltage suppression device in a form that can be easily connected across a vehicle’s battery terminals.
High-saturation ferrites can be installed on the battery wires to reduce high-frequency current transients.
Because most diesel vehicles have an extra battery, their requirements for EMP protection are slightly more than the regular car. A normal gas vehicle uses our EMP Vehicle kit with 1 T.R.A.P., 1 T.R.A.P.-B, and 2 ferrites. Because of the extra battery, the diesel kit has an extra T.R.A.P.-B and 2 extra ferrites. The total amount of items in this kit is 7, as opposed to 4 for a regular car.
