Bel's Advanced Protection System ™ with Shadow Technology ® II is
rated number one by EVO magazine, Speed Measurement Laboratories
and www.radartest.com. bel introduces Digital Remote installation
detector with front and rear Laser detection.
bel launches the Advanced Protection System ™ with Shadow
Technology ® II. The first detectors to incorporate Digital Frequency
Synthesis Technology, software upgrade capability and second
generation Shadow Technology ® . belintroduces the worlds first 10
radar frequency Radar detector. Called bel990 International, it
represents true world-class performance.
bel 745sti rated number-one by Automobile magazine. bel945i
Cordless marked the first production Radar detector to incorporate the
use of MMIC (Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuitry) technology.
bel Introduces the second generation of integrated Radar/Laser
detectors featuring Dual Tracking Laser™ for complete front and rear
Laser detection. Automobile Magazine rates bel 645STi Plus number-one.
bel introduces a complete lineup of Integrated Radar/Laser detectors
with the addition of Rear Laser detection. bel's Radar/Laser technology
is rated number one by Car Audio and Electronics magazine, "...the
hands-down class winner."
January's Consumer Electronics Show saw the introduction of a series
of Super Wideband Ka Radar detectors (33.4 - 36.o GHz). These
models contained many of BEL'S patented technological "firsts", as well
as X, K and complete Super Wideband Ka
detection. BEL combined its Super Wideband Ka Radar
technology with its #1-rated Laser technology. The result was the
smallest combination units on the market.
BEL took the lead with the January introduction of a series of
X, K and Wideband Ka Radar detectors. Called three Band Plus™, this
new series provided detection of the complete Ka band frequency (34.2
- 35.2 GHz). All Three Band Plus ™
models incorporated dual-patented FMT ® (Fundamental Mixer
Technology ® ) for maximum sensitivity to each Radar band.
BEL Shadow Technology ® proved first and only means of providing
true immunity to the VG-2 (Radar Detector Detector). Shadow
Technology ® complemented several BEL detectors including dash
and Remote installation models.
BEL introduced the first completely self-contained battery-powered,
3 band Radar detector - called BEL EXPRESS 3, This unit required no
"add on" battery pack or recharger.
Winning sensitivity levels for BEL 3 Band detectors confirmed the
performance advantage of Image Rejection Technology ® , further
establishing BEL'S position as "number one on the road". BEL 966
marked the first use of a fundamental mixer response on all bands,
providing the greatest performance leap since the introduction of
BEL set the tone for '88 and beyond with the combination of
3 Band Radar detection and Image Rejection Technology ® . IRT ®
provided a dramatic advancement in the detection of police Radar.
BEL introduced a new concept to Radar detection: Programmability.
The concept of user selectable features represented Radar detection
at its most personalized. Today, many detectors utilize this concept
which BEL pioneered. BEL QUANTUM marked the first use of
Dielectric Resonator Oscillators in a Radar detector, providing
improved frequency stability and lower noise. BEL QUANTUM also
introduced the concept of programmability in a Radar detector.
BEL introduced Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) Diode technology
to the industry. Once reserved for space and military applications,
BEL was first to utilize the benefits of low noise GaAs technology.
BEL received a patent for Horn/Microstrip antenna design. This
integration of horn antenna and microstrip technology provided
state-of-the-art reliability and performance. Aspects of this
technology have since been adopted by other manufacturers.
BEL pioneered the first pocket-sized Radar detector, proving
compact size didn't have to sacrifice performance.
BEL combined Superheterdoyne circuitry with computer
technology. Called Compuheterodyne ® this was the first time a
detector incorporated a single chip micro-computer for advanced
