Area Shields are passive shields, similar to starship particle shields, which are always active and use wire power.
Area shields don't work on starships because they stop working if you move them.
They absorb explosions whose distance from its sign is within the radius. The max power is 100,000.
To use an area shield, simply build the multiblock, right click the sign to create it, and fill it up with power. (See automation power machines and wires)
