    Default different kinds of heads in jammers?

    i'm somewhat new to the laser jamming world....

    just wondering what the difference is between a blinder for example and an AL6, how can the AL6 function with only one head and have such good performance and the blinder have 2 and not do quite as well? is this the difference between diodes(?) and something else?

    thanks

    Blinder uses LEDs. So do the Belscort jammers I think.
    Lidatek and Antilaser use laser diodes, which have much more power.

    Dr Jim wouldn't the new drive smart be better than the AL6 then because its dual diodes?

    ok, that makes sense. how would the al6 detect the lidar shot if the beam is not wide enough to hit the transciever from your headlight?

    Laser jammers are so sensitive to laser they detect all hit at the car...Lidatek is the most sensitive

    got it. i had heard somewhere that if a blinder head isnt hit with the beam, then it wont fire and wont jam, thats why they say like 18" max from the head i thought

    Most cops will shot laser at 500 ft + so that means the beam is 18" at 500ft and i guarantee you have a jamming head with in 18" of your licence plate which is the first target seting off the jammer

    Granted if you pionted the Laser jammer at another car i doubt laser jammer would activate....However the Lidatek alerted when Outrun's truck was pointed in the opposite direction

    I think if the detector part in it is sensitive enough, it can detect it even if the main "BEAM" isn't on it. For example, JTW used to have a video testing Laser Atlanta Stealth Mode, where he used a camera that could see infrared. When he shot the Escort, the main "Beam" wasn't even on the Valentine and it alerted.

    Some of the jammers we tested at the GOL tests also seemed like they had this kind of sensitivity.
