GURPS Psionic Powers 12 under Inanimate Objects and Resistance

If the ability is normally resisted by an attribute the object does not have, it resists with HT instead

Emanation never requires an attack roll. You only bother rolling if your attack is dependent upon your margin of success (e.g., it's a Malediction) -- and even then, if you fail the roll, you're still considered to have succeeded with a margin of 0. (This last rule is a general-case one for any situation where you're guaranteed success but must still roll to determine your margin of success.)
