    Default Receiver for a jammer....

    Has anybody successfully constructed a laser receiver to trigger a jammer??

    I was thinking of using a standard phototransistor with a sensitive pre-amp followed by a filter sharply tuned to 1.106 MHz (904 nSec) and a pulse extender for the trigger.

    Will it work??

    As far as I know, most commercial units use a photodiode for detection. Specifically, many use the SFH203 (Osram) or one of it's variations, usually including a spectral filter. Something to look into...

    I don't understand why you need it

    laser jammers detect laser....and jam it

    the receiver is built in to the design otherwise how would it recognize it

    maybe I'm confused by your questions :?

    Why would anyone want to put the time, effort & money into re-inventing the wheel?

    It is for a home built unit..... Forum project :wink:

    As for reinventing the wheel, it may be so but I don't think so.. :?

    You need a photo diode, band-pass filter and a good op-amp..

    band-pass should be from 70- 670 Hz (audio range).. :-)

    In normal conditions you could use a circuit from graphic eq. (filter and op-amp) and with this filtered and amplified signal you should trigger a warning... :-)

    Wouldn't you need some kind of a pulse extender as well???
    Just thinking of the short pulse received from the laser gun......

    Default Pulse Master

    Almost missed this!LOL
    On the Defender2 in-car box there is a socket to plug in a slave Pulse Master.
    This will set the jammer off if it gets a laser pulse hit.

    I would like to know this too.
    With some of the photo diodes I have tried, they are slower so they have extended the pulse naturally. But the SFH203 has a 5ns rise/fall time, I have not yet tried this one yet with a laser gun.
