Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP AN INEXPENSIVE EMP PROTECTION TECHNIQUE FOR MEDICAL EQUIPMENT TO PREVENT EMP BURNOUT OR UPSET RESULTING FROM HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS. THE BASIC APPROACH IS TO USE A NEW JAYCOR ISOLATION TRANSFORMER CONCEPT TO ADDRESS THE MAJOR PROBLEM OF ISOLATING THE POWER LINE FROM THE EQUIPMENT POWER SUPPLY, AND PROVIDE PENETRATION CONTROL FOR OTHER CONDUCTEDAND APERTURE PENETRATIONS TO THE EQUIPMENT, IF AND WHEN REQUIRED. THENEW EMP ISOLATION TRANSFORMER CONCEPT CAN PROVIDE 80 TO 100 DB ISOLATION ON POWER LINES IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE OF 10 KHZ TO 500 MHZ, COVERING THE ENTIRE EMP FREQUENCY BAND. CONDUCTED PENETRATIONS SUCH AS PROBES AND WIRES CAN BE TREATED BY USING SHIELDED CABLES AND/OR FERRITE BEADS, WHILE APERTURE PENETRATIONS ON SUCH OSCILLOSCOPE SCREENS CAN BE TREATED WITH SNAP-ON WIRE MESHES WHICH HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR TEMPEST AND OTHER APPLICATIONS. SUCH AN APPROACH DOES NOT REQUIRE MODIFICATION OR REDESIGN OF ANY OF THE ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS.
