When it comes to safety on and off the road, the addition of a reversing camera system has become a standard. In fact, in the United States, it was announced that all new cars that will be released starting 2018 should be equipped with these cameras. In Australia, certain policies and regulations are in place that penalizes drivers who will not reverse the safe way. This is the main reason why reversing camera systems are now popular, and often a recommended investment for commercial and industrial applications.
As a safety equipment, reversing camera systems are known for contributing efficiency on the road. These are mandated (and recommended) as it offers drivers that ‘extra set of eyes’ on and off the road to track and monitor the surroundings when reversing. We know that it’s a valuable equipment worth every dollar spent. But do you know what comes inside a reversing camera system kit? Here ‘s a quick rundown of the basic components and items that you will find in many reversing camera system kits.
Reversing camera. Cameras are available in different types, from NTSC or PAL to cameras in different screen sizes. When you order these reversing camera kits, you may be asked to identify the number of cameras required, with 1 to 4 cameras for every installation. Also, the cameras can be configured in different ways depending on needs and specific circumstances. Adding multiple cameras can work on larger vehicles. This arrangement can help fleet owners and operators create a combination of cameras, which can expand the driver’s view and coverage of the road. If the cameras cannot be positioned on the vehicle, or if the required or recommended field of vision is not possible, the cameras can be installed using extendable brackets. Also, some cameras are designed to be detachable.
Monitors. Monitors are critical components of the reversing kit as these provide you with a complete and real-time view of the rear when reversing. Companies may offer different screen sizes for the monitors which may come in 7” and 12’’ monitors. The most popular options out in the market are the 7” LCD monitors which can be integrated or built-in.
Cables or other accessories that can be used to secure the monitors and cameras. Cables are available in various lengths, in 4-pin or 7-pin serial system. Speaking of length, the most common cables are available in 10, 15 and 20-meter lengths, and the choice depends on the size of the vehicle and camera arrangement required.
