    Default Dust and other debris

    How does the road dust, accumulated over time, affect the jamming and receiving capability of a jammer? The reason Im asking is because Id love to keep a jammer concealed under a nice layer of dust, as long as it doesnt affect its performance.

    Dust and Dirt will diminish the capabilities of the laser jammer. I always keep mine clean. I wipe them clean usually every other day. Keep a bottle of Windex and some rags in my car.

    Default jammer

    it would act the same as a dirty windscreen.......

    if your device was emitting radar it wouldnt matter!

    but because its laser and its light it doesnt pass through dust or any other thing infront of it!!

    letting them get dirty could mean you never get a laser warning and if you dont get that it wont jam, even if you get a laser warning there may be enough dust dirt on the len for it not to jam!!!

    the cleaner the better!!

    Could we put a layer of sticky tape on the front of each lens to protect it, then when the tape gets damaged, just peel it off and put in a new layer?

    Or perhaps plastic "Glad Wrap" would work as well? Or something else to protect the lens?

    Default New Lens

    I would recommend just getting a new lens, they are not expensive

    We have them for the Blinder here

    Default laser jammers

    you'd have to test it out..... i dont know if it would affect laser detection / jamming performance...

    it would be good to get a protector for the len's

    you could always ask the manufacturer if tape or a plastic covering would affect performance!

    i aways say inventor knows best!

    you could track down gordon gould! he invented the laser before all the other scientists! he wasnt lucky enough to patent it earlier!! :cry:

    I'm actually working on making a optically clear plastic cover for the lenses - kinda like some scotch tape however much thicker and better. Maybe I can fly over to SML to see if it works good? (don't have no lidars up here :x )

    3M makes a clear stone guard film that might do the trick. It's like clear packing tape but much thicker.

    Yeah but mine is exact fit and prepackaged... and probably cheaper considering how much 3M stuff is these days...
