12V DC Vehicle EMP protector rated at 500,000 amps of surge protection

Bad Wolf DC surge protection device SPD provides overvoltage protection. Built using our patented Overwatch protection circuitry that provides ultra-fast surge response and easy to read status indication.

Max EMP Defender 12V Gen 2

The SPD is built to handle surge currents up to 500,000 Amps (500kA). Designed using Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV), Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) Diodes and Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) technology. With reaction speeds in the trillionth of a second and capable of surviving thousands of repetitive surges when we say this device is built tough that is an understatement. By using Military and Commercial grade components this SPD is designed to protect against every type of transient surge possible including EMP all phases, CME (coronal mass ejection), Solar Flare, Lightning and more...

Bad Wolf is a leader in high power surge protection devices SPDs and provides one of the largest selections of both AC or DC available. Bad Wolf is a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Made in the USA company that is not only a contract manufacturer for private and federal agencies, but also backed by the SBA (small business administration) to provide custom solutions for consumer applications as well.
