March 2, 2016, Elgin, IL – K40 Electronics, (http://www.k40.com) the premier manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance automotive radar/laser protection systems, announced today the introduction of the K40 RL360i and RL200i Expert custom installed radar detector systems featuring an all-new system controller that provides a factory/OEM installation solution.
Looks and Functions Like OEM Controls
Inspired by installers, the Expert Control Unit enables mobile electronics retailers to offer an additional customization option to customers and design a protection system that meets their needs. This permanently installed, yet easily concealable component looks and functions just like other factory installed vehicle controls, including back-lighting for easy button identification in low light conditions.
In keeping with its three decades’ commitment to product excellence, K40 made the Expert Control Unit available to several dealers prior to market launch to gain insightful installation feedback. Jason Kranitz, owner of Kingpin Car & Marine Audio, said “Every aspect of every vehicle modification we perform must be of OEM quality or better. As such, we are only going to offer the Expert series of radar detectors from K40 because it offers the industry’s best interior matching control unit available. It makes our day when a customer tells us our installation of this Expert control unit looks like it was a factory option.”
Equally enthusiastic in his praise of the Expert series was Josh Landau, System Design Consultant for JML Audio of St. Louis. He feels “K40 has always been the leader in stealth radar detection and laser defense systems. The Expert Controller properly fits in locations where the standard controller simply does not. This creates many new vehicle integration opportunities not previously available. It also appears just like the factory vehicle controls thanks to its white back-lit display.”

Pricing and Availability
Available immediately through K40’s select authorized dealer network, the Expert Systems are offered in the following configurations:
RL360i Expert: The world’s first separate front and rear mounted radar receiver system. Provides 360-degree protection against police radar.
RL200i Expert: Front only remote mounted radar receiver system.
Because the type of installation these systems require is highly dependent on each particular vehicle make and model, pricing is always provided by the installing dealer. To complete either Expert radar detection system, K40’s Laser Defuser g5 laser jammers can be added to provide protection against police laser guns.
“With the leadership position we’ve built in the custom installed radar and laser protection product category, we’re continually seeking ways to enhance our products and support services,” said Rachel Clark, K40’s National Sales Director. “By offering installation professionals a system controller solution that offers the best factory appearance in the industry, we are further enhancing K40’s reputation as the highest quality, highest performance brand available.”
