Points to Consider Before You Buying a Reverse Camera

Reverse Camera

Reverse Cameras have become important safety aids for the more expensive or upper end vehicle brands. Could You fit and use one, Of course you can.

WHAT IS A REVERSE CAMERA?
A Reverse Camera is a camera installed in the back of the car, camper, caravan, truck or even boat to name a few applications. A monitor is placed in the car in front of the driver and is activated when the car is placed in reverse either from one of the reversing lights or the switch on the gearbox

THE REVERSE CAMERA AS A SAFETY AID!
The Reversing camera is a logical progression of the parking sensors. The cameras allow the driver to control the rear bumper and beyond. Most tested vehicles that do not have cameras have invisible inversion points. The results indicate that cars with reverse cameras can improve rear visibility.

THE FITTING OF A REVERSE CAMERA KIT
The setting of the camera is not so difficult. But you should probably repair it by a professional, because in most cases, you should cut the body (not always). The camera should also be placed in the correct position for maximum exposure at the rear of the vehicle. The monitor fits into the dashboard or dashboard. But the most popular setting on the existing rearview mirror with strips. The wiring is consuming more time, although the newest kits are “wireless”, you still need to connect to the power switch and investment, which is not so difficult.

IMPORTANT POINTS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT
Une fois qu’il est extrêmement dangereux que le contrôleur soit nécessaire pour basculer manuellement le système chaque fois que vous voulez revenir, il est important que le système de caméra inversée ait la capacité de se connecter automatiquement. Un système de caméra de recul doit avoir la capacité de produire une image “miroir” (ou “inverse”) à travers la caméra ou le moniteur. Si un système n’a pas répertorié cette fonctionnalité, il n’aura probablement pas la ressource

CMOS AND CCD THE FIELD OF VIEWThe field of view provided by any camera is determined by a combination of size and lens of the image sensor. The larger the image sensor, the larger the field of view. However, a larger image sensor does not always guarantee. Although a 90 degree field of view is sufficient for some smaller vehicles, a 120 degree field is ideal. You should always try to use a high quality CCD image from a well known manufacturer. If the system you need does not indicate that you are using a “CCD” image sensor, then probably not.

WIRED VS WIRELESS SYSTEMS
One important fact is that most of the wireless systems have fragile antennas on the camera and receiver that must be aimed directly at each other. Most have antennas that are easily broken during normal use.

NIGHT VISION
Always consider buying a reversing camera system that includes night vision lighting. Infrared illuminators must provide a minimum of 10 feet of lighting and lighting of 20 to 30 feet or more is strongly recommended.

I prefer a wired system for reliability. If you really need a wireless rear view system, then you will have to settle for a lower quality image due to interference, etc., always going to the top quality in this regard. More and more vehicle manufacturers are incorporating reverse chambers in their units mainly to avoid the increasing number of accidents during the inversion.
