When firing a TASER Gun there is compressed nitrogen that ejects two probes up to 15 feet at an approximate speed of 135 feet per second. When these probes hit its target area, an electrical signal transmits throughout where the probes make contact with the body or clothing. The result of the hit is an immediate victory to the attacker’s neuromuscular control system and the target will not have any ability to perform synchronized movement. An automated timing mechanism is used by the TASER gun that submits the electric charge. An electrical current pre-set time sequence is released by the TASER (an initial seven seconds followed by several 1.8 second breaks for a total time of about 30 seconds in each cycle). This particular cycle ensures that the nervous system of the attacker does not recuperate right away allowing him or her to remove the probes. The re-equilibration of the nervous system is disrupted by the follow-on bursts. When the attacker is down in a disabled mode this is the time for you to put the TASER down and get to safety.
Is High Voltage Lethal?
The typical current in a home is 100 volts. This level is dangerous as it will thrust higher amperage into your body for an indefinite period. Someone can receive a 25,000-volt shock of static electricity from a doorknob on a dry day without being harmed. The TASER is powered with an alkaline 9-Volt battery that is competent of supplying less than three watts of electrical power for only a few moments.
Are there any after affects?
Anyone who is shot by a TASER Gun will be in a confused state for several minutes. A sense of vertigo will happen due to the lively electrical output. This will cause your muscles to produce contractions uncontrollably. The attacker can possibly become in an unconscious state at this time. However, TASER’s low electrical amperage and short duration of pulsating current, ensures a less-lethal charge. Although there is controversy as to whether a…
