A contractor from here in Lehighton, PA, came to Mobile Edge in search of a backup camera solution for his cargo van. He didn’t want anything fancy. We had a look at the vehicle and proposed a cost-effective solution that would not only make backing up much safer, but likely save him time. He liked the plan, so we scheduled an appointment to do the installation.
We started by installing a Rostra Wedge-Mount 250-8147 camera on the lip above the license plate. This CMOS camera offers an amazing 160-degree field of vision and can see in light levels down to 0.5 lux. To see the camera image, we installed an Accele LCDP43LW 4.3-inch swivel mount monitor on the dash. We wired the system so the camera image would display as soon as the vehicle is put into reverse.
The client was happy with our installation and thrilled to finally be able to see behind the truck while backing up. While nothing bad had happened, the number of accidents that occur while backing up can easily be reduced with a backup camera system.
