The Voyager OBS713RCM Heavy Duty Blind Zone Camera System has been introduced specifically to eliminate dangerous blind spots for heavy trucking applications, the company notes, helping operators complete hazardous driving maneuvers such as backing up, changing lanes, merging, and making wide right turns. Moreover, fleets are realizing fuel savings, product engineers report, as Voyager Blind Zone Cameras allow removal of forward front fender mirrors, leading to a reduction in drag and an increase in fuel economy. The system comprises a sealed 7-in., waterproof/dustproof color LCD monitor; a right-side, high-performance camera; a monitor mount; and, 25 feet of cable.
Completely reliable for strenuous road and work applications, the manufacturer contends, the Voyager monitor delivers clear, high-quality color images of the truck’s surrounding areas and can be paired with up to three cameras. It can be activated by DC triggers, e.g., such 12V impulses as left/right blinkers and reverse gear. Additional features include integrated audio speaker, backlit controls, manual or automatic source selection, day/night brightness modes, and On Screen Display (OSD) for AV source, picture adjustment, and volume control. The monitor’s slim profile lends an unobtrusive appeal to cab installation, and the anti-glare/anti-scratch protective lens ensures functionality in all conditions. Especially suited to the industry are 12V and 24V system compatibility, circuit protection, and thoroughly sealed housing, which prevents moisture and dust from penetrating inner components and circuitry.
Secure in chrome housing, the waterproof Voyager color right-side CMOS camera offers the ability to see beyond the normal scope provided by conventional mirrors, the manufacturer emphasizes. The camera features wide viewing angles [101 degrees horizontal] Û showing the rig’s full extent and three to four lanes Û plus CMOS technology that allows improved picture quality, enhanced nighttime and daytime vision, and smaller camera size. When paired with the monitor, it delivers real time images. The CMOS camera is also anti-blooming, i.e., direct sunlight will not wash out the picture, and distracting light halos around bright images do not occur. The side camera can be installed on any heavy truck with 90 degree mounting. ASA Electronics www.asaelectronics.com/www.rvcams.com
