BLINDER HP-905 Installation
The installation of your BLINDER system can be a simple process for those people with some auto electrical wiring skills and experience. For others without experience, we recommend having your system professionally installed. Contact us for a BLINDER installer in your area.
Standard Sensor Setup
For a standard setup, we recommend following the instructions in the installation guide found on our Support Page. The installation manual on our website is kept up-to-date with changes and/or additions. (In an effort to reduce the use of paper pulp, we no longer print installation manuals. All manuals are available for download from our website.
Now 30% smaller by volume than any other laser sensor on the market, the new HP-905 sensors blend easily into recesses in the body work of your car.
For a standard anti-laser speed gun installation, the HP-905 sensors should be mounted level and pointing straight forward. The “raised bubble” detection area on the sensor should be positioned on the “outside line” of the vehicle. (See image right).
Advanced Sensor Setup
With the introduction of new “slant angle” laser speed cameras such as the PoliScan-Speed by Vitronic, we have modified our sensor installation instructions to account for these new laser threats. If you live in a country, or state where this particular laser speed camera is used, you will need to include angled sensor heads for effective jamming.
The PoliScan-Speed laser detection system can be setup to take photos and speed readings when aimed at any of the four corners of your vehicle. The laser beam detection zone is from 20m to 50m before the VPS* speed trap and the invisible beam is shot at an angle across the road to limit the warning distance to laser/radar detectors.
Front Facing Poliscan-Speed
With standard forward facing sensors and under normal driving conditions, the HP-905 will detect a frontal approaching VPS* (Vitronic PoliscanSpeed) speed trap, at ranges from 80 meters to 300 meters. This will normally be more than enough warning distance to check your speed before reaching the detection zone. Under this situation where laser jamming isn’t warranted due to adequate warning distances, forward facing sensors on the front of the vehicle will be sufficient for your purposes.
If on the other hand, you are finding that the standard installation using forward facing sensors are NOT providing adequate warning distance, (due to “sneaky” positioning of the PoliscanSpeed behind objects such as bus shelters, bins or trees). then you will need to consider going to a “FULL INVISIBLE DEFENCE” setup on the front of your vehicle with slanted sensors setup to the correct angles specified.
Rear Facing Poliscan-Speed
The only SLANT ANGLED laser sensors OR sensors with multiple angled laser diodes will give you a high degree invisibility and protection from the Vitronic Poliscan-Speed camera system. This is because laser diodes shoot a very narrow, but very intense beam of invisible light down the road in a straight line with very little diffuse scattering. By the time your vehicle engages the VPS* at close distances, it is well outside the effective angle of the sensor.
For Vitronic Poliscan-Speed traps that are setup to photograph the rear of your vehicle, rear facing slant-angle HP-905 sensors are a MUST HAVE.
Above: This setup will provide jamming for laser speed guns and warning only for frontal Vitronic PoliscanSpeed traps. If you live in a state that uses the VPS* system, you will need to include SLANT angle sensors on the front and rear of your vehicle.
Below: Slanted sensors for Poliscan-Speed and forward facing sensors for Laser Speed Guns. This is the ultimate solution to drivers that need to contend with the VPS* laser speed camera trap. (Other manufactures may not include instructions for the slanted sensor. That doesn’t mean that they are not a critical requirement to effectively jam the VP* laser speed camera.)
