A Faraday Box for Pete Sumaruck’s Power Unit

After the power went out in Pete Sumaruck’s neighborhood recently – later to find someone had a heart attack and hit a power pole – one of Pete’s neighbors saw him outside, asking him if his power was out. Pete replied no, that his place was fine.

The neighbor shook his head, couldn’t understand it, didn’t believe him.

“Come on inside; I’ll show you.” Inside, his TV was on, as well as the lights and fridge.

“Why are we all out and you aren’t,” the neighbor asked. They were standing next to an outside wall.

“Do you hear that noise,” asked Pete.

“I guess…but hardly, what is it.” They looked out the window to a boxed object, the size of a furnace.”

“That’s how I power my place.” Pete now telling me how surprised his neighbor was. He went on. “And I have it in a Faraday Box.”

Of course, I had to ask “what”…it appeared to be a simple metal box, no particular design features.

“It protects my power unit from any electromagnetic intrusions.” Not that he expects any but why not be safe.

Michael Faraday

I had heard the name of the inventor, Faraday, but I didn’t really know anything about him. Initially I presumed he was in Tesla’s generation, but with some research, I found that Michael Faraday was doing his work much earlier – born in 1791.

Faraday was basically self-taught, but that was an era of nascent scientific development. When they say that Michael Faraday invented the electric motor, what he produced is unrecognizable from any present day electric motor. It was for demonstrations only – converting electric energy into motion, “as a way to do the work,” – turning energy into work.

Faraday’s version of a motor in 1820

Faraday knew he had something potentially important, but he wasn’t clear on how it would be adapted. His invention would move from creating the basics of a motor, to becoming a generator, but in 1820, there were no plugs, no cords, no electric power source with common distribution as we know it. For Faraday, it was simply an experiment.

Later, he created what is now called “Faraday’s cage” or “shield” or simply the Faraday Box. It’s function is to stop electromagnetic waves from affecting something mechanical inside the container. Strangely enough, it has been suggested that if you had something electronic but quite small that you wanted to protect, you could put it into an old microwave oven. Your object would be fully enclosed and exempt from electric fields. But a Zero-Amp Tech power production unit is much larger than a microwave oven.

Pete Sumaruck encloses his units in a metal box to protect it from the elements, if you were to set it outside your building, or in a garage or other auxiliary building. But today was his first mention of Faraday protection – why not, might as well have a duel protection, one for the elements and also protection from electromagnetic interference. Yes.

There are a variety of standard applications for EMP such as MRI medical equipment using a Faraday shield to “prevent radio waves from entering the room, and impacting the imaging process.”

“The concept of the shield revolutionized the idea of wiring buildings for electrical service, (from Wisegeek),” so it’s natural Pete Sumaruck would be interested in the Faraday shield since he has been designing the wiring for buildings for over thirty years. Faraday’s influence has been seen where his shields are “installed in transmission switches and towers,” and also related to television, wireless and computer networking.”

The Faraday Shield reroutes electromagnetic field lines.

Now, Mr. Sumaruck intends to protect his own power unit as best he can from any negative outside influences. He is not a suspicious person but he is careful and prudent, and EMP (or Electro Magnetic Pulse) technology has been weaponized. per homelandsecuritywire.com.

Pete also uses the very best in security surveillance equipment for his own power production unit. He does not suggest this is necessary for others using his technology, but for himself, he intends to be protected.
