The new K40 Laser DefuserPlus LD5500POD, is certified active laser jamming technology for an early warning system, according to K40 Electonics. According to the company, the Laser DefuserPlus LD5500POD updates any vehicle’s existing radar detector and keeps it from becoming obsolete. Inside the vehicle, the Warning Pod alert system features an LED light and audio speaker housed in a low profile display. This alert system also can be installed without the expense and modification of installing separate components into the vehicle’s dashboard and/or instrument cluster. Outside the vehicle, the Laser DefuserPlus module can be installed in the supplied license plate frame – the preferred targeting point of police laser operators - or removed and mounted horizontally flush against or underneath the front air dam with the Universal Mounting Bracket. Installed retail price for the Laser DefuserPlus LD5500POD is $329.95, but the price may vary slightly by installation. "Now, owners of radar detectors from Escort, Valentine, BEL, and Whistler can affordably add laser protection technology to their existing radar detector while preserving their original investment," said Peggy Finley, president of K40 Electronics. "The use of laser in speed enforcement is growing, and our product gives drivers the ability to protect themselves and regain motoring confidence." According to K40 Electronics, when a police laser beam hits a targeted vehicle, K40’s laser technology sends out a return pulse signal at the same frequency as police laser. This effectively "jams" the speed measurement ability of the laser gun and gives drivers the time needed to react and reduce speed. Because it does not interfere with radio waves or FCC regulated devices and no laser diodes are used, all K40 Laser DefuserPlus models are completely harmless and legal. The company said it will also pay the cost of any laser ticket received during the first year of ownership. In a recent test by Speed Measurement Laboratories, Inc.(SML), the Laser DefuserPlus was awarded SML’s Performance Certification. This designation verifies the Laser DefuserPlus detects and deactivates the speed measurement ability of laser guns and gives drivers the time needed to react and safely reduce speed. SML is an independent firm and has been conducting speed analysis field tests for over 16 years. Carl Fors, SML’s president, is a internationally recognized authority and published author on radar, laser, and speed enforcement technologies.
