Rosco has developed a new backup camera and exterior rear view mirror system to reduce blind spots and increase safety on Ford Transit Connect Commercial Vehicles that will be displayed at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, IN from March 6th - 8th.
“These superior quality, robust and efficient backup camera and exterior rear view mirror systems are specifically designed for the Ford Transit Connect commercial vehicle and can save owners and fleet managers money by reducing insurance premiums and damage to vehicles.” said Peter Plate, Director of Sales and Marketing. Furthermore, Plate says, “These systems improve vehicle operation efficiency, manpower requirements, and are fully maintainable.”
The Smart-Vision™ STSK4530 backup camera system is specifically designed for small to medium size vehicles and utilizes an interior rear view mirror to display a 4.3” LCD monitor that appears automatically when the vehicle is in reverse operation. The backup camera system provides added convenience and safety with simple replacement of the interior OEM rear view mirror. This monitor allows the driver to automatically see behind the vehicle, and once the vehicle is shifted to all other modes of vehicle operation a normal full interior mirror view appears. The camera has an advanced CMOS lens sensor able to process excellent images in all light conditions and a 170° diagonal field of vision for superb coverage behind the vehicle. The system is weather proof with an IP67 rating, shock resistant, comes with a one (1) year warranty, and when installed properly, complies with latest NHTSA 49 CFR Parts 571 & 585 (RIN 2127-AK43) which requires backup safety cameras on certain vehicles.
The Ford Transit Connect heavy duty exterior rear view mirror system offers a generous mirror viewing area on two separately adjustable mirror heads and allows drivers to optimize angles and locations to cover all blind spots and danger zones. The Ford Transit Connect exterior rear view mirror system offers drivers 50% more viewing surface than standard exterior mirrors providing enhanced safety through all driving maneuvers and operations. The wider field of view and the exceptional stability allows the exterior mirrors to provide a clear image of the passing lanes and blind spots around the vehicle leading to improved safety and faster driver reaction time.
