K40 Electronics Announces the Addition of the K40 Laser Defuser Optix™ to its Police Laser Gun Jammer Product Line

K40 Electronics announced the addition of the K40 Laser Defuser Optix™ to its police laser gun jammer product line. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
