Overview: The Beltronics Pro200 provides full detection of
radar and laser, alerts from the Safety Warning System, and full VG2 immunity.
The unit comes equipped with a suction-cup windshield mount and a SmartPlug
coiled power cord.
Detection Capability: The Beltronics Pro200 includes
full X, K, Ka and Safety Warning System radar capability, 360-degree laser
detection, and a fast microprocessor for delivering
alerts in 500 milliseconds or less. It features a varactor-tuned (VTO) microwave
receiver and digital signal processing for superior range and reduced false
alarms. You can program the unit to enable all bands at once or you can select
one or more bands to turn off (once you have determined there are no traffic
radar units using the disabled bands in your area).
SmartPlug: The SmartPlug power cord has a power-on indicator,
a bright alert light that warns of radar or laser and a convenient mute button right
on the plug. It's a perfect solution for when your radar detector is out of reach or
for discreet night driving when you are using the unit's Dark mode. An optional
SmartPlug module, which can be wired directly into your vehicle's electrical
system with an 8' straight cord, is available.
Traffic Signal Rejection: The Pro200 utilizes Traffic
Signal Rejection to eliminate false alerts due to location or certain
frequencies. Radar-based traffic flow sensors, mounted along major highways,
transmit strong K-band signals for a half-second approximately every minute.
These signals help produce traffic flow data for personal navigation devices,
but also create numerous false radar alerts. Beltronics' proprietary Traffic
Signal Rejection (TSR) software, found in the Pro200, helps eliminate
annoying false alerts.
DSP (Digital Signal Processing):
The digital AutoScan feature continuously analyzes all incoming signals and
automatically rejects unwanted false alarms. This gives you the perfect balance
of long-range detector performance without annoying false alarms.
The Pro200 provides 8 times the sensitivity of any imported radar detector,
including the latest "POP" mode threat.
Multiple laser sensor diodes, strategically positioned in the unit, continually search
for laser gun signals.
Digital Voice Alerts: The Pro200's
easy to understand digital voice alerts keep you informed without taking your
eyes off the road. If you prefer, you can turn off the voice announcement
feature and have the unit provide audible tones instead.
Audible Alerts: The Pro200 uses audible alerts for
Radar, Laser, POP, and Safety signals:
- Radar Signals: The Pro200 uses a Geiger-counter-like
sound to indicate the signal strength and type of radar signal being
encountered. When you encounter radar, a distinct audible alert will
sound and occur faster as the signal gets stronger. This allows you
to judge the distance from the signal source without taking your
eyes from the road.
- X-band: Chirping sound
- K-band: Buzzing sound
- Ka-band: Double-Chirp
- POP: Full Double-Chirp
- SWS: Double Beep sound
- Laser Signals: Since Laser
signals are a possible threat no matter how weak, the Pro200 alerts you
to these bands at full signal strength.
- POP Signals: Since POP
signals are extremely fast K or Ka bursts, and a possible threat no matter
how weak, the Pro200 alerts you to these bands at full signal strength.
- Safety Signals: The Pro200 will alert you to these
signals with a double-beep tone, and a corresponding text message.
Sensitivity: You can set the
Pro200 to three sensitivity modes:
- Highway Mode: detects all
signals at maximum range
- AutoScan Mode: the unit's internal computer
continuously analyzes all incoming signals and intelligently filters
out unwanted X and K-band false alarms. Full sensitivity is maintained on
all other bands.
- City Mode: the X and K-band sensitivity is further
reduced to eliminate unwanted false alarms in congested urban areas. There
are options for Low X and No X sensitivity settings.
Pro200 features a bright, alphanumeric display that consists of 280 individual LEDs,
visible from virtually any angle. The unit offers three display options:
- Signal Strength Meter: The standard bar-graph signal
strength meter only displays information on a single radar signal. If there
are multiple signals present, the unit's internal computer determines which
is the most important threat to show on the bar-graph meter.
- Threat Display: Designed for experienced users, the Threat Display
is a miniature spectrum analyzer that simultaneously tracks multiple radar
signals and their relative strengths which can help you spot a change in your
normal driving environment.
- Tech Display: The Tech Display
option, also for experienced detector users, will display
the actual numeric frequency of the radar signal being received.
Brightness Control: The Pro200 offers
three levels of brightness, plus a Dark Mode. Dark
Mode uses the power-on and alert indicators on the SmartPlug as the only visual
Mute and AutoMute: The Pro200 features the AutoMute feature,
which automatically reduces the volume level during an alert. Or, you can simply
press the large front-mounted Mute button on the detector or on the SmartPlug
during an alert to instantly quiet the audio.
Programming: There are 6 user-selectable options so you can
customize the Pro200 for your own
- Pilot (Power-on indication): choose full word (Highway,
AutoScan, or City) or letter (H, A, or C) in the display.
- Voice Alerts: turn digital voice announcement
On or Off
- Power-On Sequence: choose between
the standard Power-On function or the Fast Power-On
- AutoMute: turn this function either
On or Off
- City Mode Sensitivity: select Standard, Low X, or No X.
- Bands: select between the radar detector's default
setting (all bands) or choose to turn one or more of the bands off
Mounting: You will get optimum performance from the detector
if you mount it at a point approximately in the center of the vehicle, as low as
possible on the front windshield without obstructing the view of the road to the
front or rear. The supplied windshield mount adheres the detector to the windshield
with two suction cups. The angle can be adjusted for best visibility.
