ELGIN, Ill., July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- K40 Electronics, (http://www.k40.com) the premier manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance automotive radar/laser protection systems, announced today the addition of the K40 Laser Defuser Optix™ to its police laser gun jammer product line.
The Next Evolution in Laser Jamming
Since introducing the world's first police laser gun (LIDAR) countermeasure device in 1994, K40 has maintained its leadership position in the laser jamming industry by continually incorporating technological advances to its products. By utilizing a Nanostack™ technology pulsed laser diode to provide a jamming beam, the Laser Defuser Optix housing measures only 2.2" L x 0.5" H x 1.1" D, approximately the size of a slim automotive key fob or USB flash drive. This ultra-compact footprint allows for a discreet installation of the Laser Defuser Optix into grilles and other tight spaces.
Maximum Protection Capability
The Laser Defuser Optix interface enables the installation of up to five laser transponders. This expansive coverage capability is ideal for larger vehicles that have more surface area needing increased protection.
Updateable to Ensure Optimum Performance
Via the built-in USB port, the Laser Defuser Optix system software can be updated as new police laser gun technology emerges. Offered as a K40 service procedure, this update functionality ensures the Laser Defuser Optix will deliver optimum protection for long-term peace of mind ownership.
Integrates with K40 Custom Installed Radar Detection Systems
The Laser Defuser Optix integrates with the custom installed K40 RL200i or K40 RL360i remote radar detection systems to form a complete protection solution with a single warning display via gauge/instrument panel mounted LEDs.
Like all K40 speeding ticket protection products, every Laser Defuser Optix is pre-tested before it's shipped to an authorized K40 dealer for installation. This attention to quality control has resulted in a less than 0.5% return rate for the entire K40 product line, far below the 2-3% industry average return rate of consumer electronics products.
Configurations and Availability
Available immediately through K40's authorized dealer network, two Laser Defuser configurations offering police laser ticket protection are available:
- (new) Laser Defuser Optix: Space-saving design with laser diode technology and updateable system software.
- Laser Defuser g5: LED technology with OEM appearance license plate frame option.
The installation these systems require is highly dependent on each particular vehicle make and model, pricing is always provided by the installing dealer. For information on K40's entire product line, which offers the industry's first ticket-free guarantee, visit http://www.k40.com/products.
"We're very pleased to introduce laser diode technology as a natural evolution of our Laser Defuser product line," said Rachel Clark, K40's National Sales Director. "A key benefit of laser diode technology is a smaller transponder housing. As a result, the Laser Defuser Optix provides automotive aftermarket professionals increased installation options while customers can enjoy the ultimate ticket protection solution that looks like a factory installed option."
