BACK-UP & FRONT CAMERA SYSTEMS

Today's drivers are more safety conscious than ever. With the popularity of SUVs, trucks and larger vehicles, blind areas behind and beside the vehicle are an increasing problem. Sophisticated technology now makes it affordable for drivers to have an added dimension of safety. A rear view or front view camera system makes backing up and parking easier and less prone to accidents. Every vehicle application is different, consult with us to find the right add on or factory integrated solution that is best for you.

CAMERAS

Multiple camera options are available for all types of vehicles. From the discrete lip mounted camera on most passenger vehicles to a factory matched tailgate handle, emblem camera or third brake light replacement camera. We have a camera solution for almost every application. Costs vary for Factory style cameras.

MONITORS

For most factory touch screen displays, and even Ford's 4" radio display, there are interfaces to add a rear camera image directly the the Factory screen. Rear view mirrors with auto dimming replacement are available for most other vehicles without a factory dash display. We have a rear view display for almost every application.

HEAVY DUTY

For the HD applications, we offer a camera system that is ruggedly constructed to withstand wet, rough, and dusty work conditions. The infrared camera provides excellent wide-angle, night vision allowing users to see and work more safely and efficiently. The 7" LCD screen has a wide viewing angle and high resolution display.

 

FMVSS 111
FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD REAR VISION REGULATION TAKES EFFECT

New Back up Camera Compliance Law


The new rear visibility portion of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard FMVSS 111 rear visibility field of view regulation - applicable to vehicles with a 10,000-lb. GVW or less - will phase in for altered vehicles starting May 1, 2017. Full rear visibility conformance is required by May 1, 2018.
FMVSS 111 rear visibility has traditionally been the standard for mirrors and now includes rear camera systems. The change to include rear vision systems in the Standard comes from the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act of 2007, in which NHTSA was directed to undertake a rulemaking process to expand the required driver field of view in order to reduce backover accidents. This extended area is a 10-ft. by 20-ft. space directly behind a vehicle which traditional mirrors do not enable a driver to fully view. The test used to verify these requirements includes a series of seven specifically sized cylindrical objects with either a horizontal band or vertical stripe applied. They are located in designated positions along the perimeter of this area.
There are a series of performance requirements for the rear vision systems in this new portion of FMVSS 111. Full compliance is required for vehicles with a GVWR of 10,000 lbs. or less, manufactured on or after May 1, 2018. However, the phase-in for the Standard calls for the field of view criteria to be met (where it applies to altered vehicles) beginning May 1, 2017. This means a vehicle that is completed on or after this date and equipped with a rear vision system already meeting field of view requirements must continue to do so after it is altered. For example, when performing a pickup box removal on a truck meeting the field of view requirements with the OEM camera system, the camera will need to be reinstalled (or an equivalent, compatible camera installed) on the new body and in a position which continues to satisfy the field of view requirements.  A conservative assumption is vehicles on which you are removing and reinstalling (or replacing) a rearview camera on or after May 1, 2017, will need to be evaluated for field of view.
