About: i enjoy inventing, taking apart electronics, and rebuilding them. i also have a hobby of creating batch files, i greatly enjoy programming batch. i also enjoy coding and decoding binary code.

Intro: EMP Generator Schematic

These are my plans for an EMP Generator.  It uses flash circuits from disposable cameras to power the coil. I plan to make an instructable of it soon. Leave me any comments or tips. Thanks.

The parts list is as follows:

1project box
3 flash circuits (from disposable camreas)
3 AAA battery holders
1 9v battery clip
1 9v battery holder
1 390 ohm resistor
1 red L.E.D
1 green L.E.D
1 12 DC PC relay
2 L.E.D holders
5 momentary switches
2 on/off switches
wire
1 iron core coil
1 momentary switch (2 contacts)

The small diagram on the back is an alternate firing setup if the momentary switch with 2 channels is not available.

It would require another relay, momentary switch and 390 ohm resistor, and inexplicably a blue LED.

After looking at the original I am actually impressed with the elegancy of the design. Not bad for something I drew in class :)

    so this is a DC power schematic do you think you could draw an AC high voltage schematic if so. I will build it test it and perfect it.

    what AWG did you use and how many windings does your coil have?

    Awesome! I look forward to your instructable on it! :)

    An EMP lets out an electromagnetic pulse. It will knock out any near by electronics (temporarily) and could melt the wires if they are strong enough. The American military have been doing research into them because an EMP could be used to take out an underground bunker without killing anyone. Also a nuclear bomb would cause much damage to the surroundings. If you think about it though, a nuclear bomb is an EMP, a NEMP (nuclear electromagnetic pulse) to be precise, because gamma rays from the nuclear blast knocks electrons out of their orbits. The electrons form an electromagnetic pulse which has a range varying on how high up the NEMP is. If the NEMP is on the ground the explosion has a larger range than the EMP but in the air (e.g. 2 miles) the EMP would out-range the blast. The EMP would be strong enough to melt electrical wires that weren't protected by a grounded Faraday cage/

    I don't mean to be unkind but I can't read your schematics. If you used a computer to draw it or made it bigger so I could read what you wrote it would be so much easier

    I could you please explain to me what would cause this not to work. I would like to make one and get familiar with EMP's cause when I get older I want to design weapons. I need to know how to make it work.

    XOIIO, just read your comment, I made it, not as hard as your plans but simpler. I'll post my design soon. It's easy, maybe a bit dodgy but it works perfectly.

    There is no point for switch 8. Maybe to see that you've just fired the thing but nothing else. Thanks anyway cause this helped me finish my research. Post your finish product

    I would like to have a very small emp device. I am willing to pay for all the expences.
    Please let me know if someone can help.

    I'm not an electrical engineer or even know a lot about electrical circuits or anything, but I'd like to build an EMP if I can find some good plans.
    It seams to me that an old CRT monitor would have some useful parts to accomplish this, no?
