Beyond Military Specifications (Mil-Spec): The Protection You Need
An EMP blast can generate an energy pulse of 30,000 to 50,000 volts/meter at the ground.
–A normal silver anti-static bag usually offers 5 to 10 dB of shielding. 10 dB would protect to only 500 volts per meter. (10 dB is the minimum for the US Military’s lowest standard Type III.
–A Mil-Spec Type I bag has to provide at least 25 dB of shielding. Even this highest grade of EMP bag would only protect to about 3,000 volt/meter.
EMP Cover bags offer 45 dB of protection — enough to shield against a 40,000 volt per meter attack.
