Collision mitigation technology leader PRECO Electronics® has announced the release of PreView Sentry®X, an intelligent radar solution designed to improve situational awareness for operators of large haul trucks and other heavy mobile equipment. Combining the narrow field of view from PreView Xtreme® with the award-winning flexibility of PreView Sentry®, Sentry X continues the rugged reliability PRECO customers have come to expect while providing an upgrade path for existing Xtreme users.

Using the Sentry platform, PRECO created Sentry X with a narrower field of view designed to support all the same installation points as the original Xtreme while including Sentry’s 30-meter range capabilities and the ability to adjust the detection zone in both range and width, making it an adept blind spot monitoring sensor.

“PreView Xtreme has played a critical role in the success of countless applications, and has remained a best-seller since its release in 2002,” said Tom Loutzenheiser, PRECO’s Vice President of Business Development. “PRECO has always worked to provide the most reliable collision mitigation systems. Sentry X is the latest step in supporting our customers with purpose-built blind spot solutions for the heavy-duty industries.”

Improving on the original 5.8 GHz Xtreme, Sentry X operates in the globally approved 200 MHz section of the 24 GHz RF band to support North America, Europe, India, and Japan along with the rest-of-the-world markets. Which extends the range capabilities to 30-meters.

As proximity detection adoption within heavy-duty industries spreads across the globe, warning systems have advanced, propelling the industry in the direction of safer, more intelligent technologies. Until today, installations which required sensors with narrow fields of view could not take advantage of the leading sensor’s flexibility and range capabilities. Now, with Sentry X, they can.

Over the years, PRECO has continued to maintain its leadership position in object detection systems for heavy-duty mobile equipment through technology innovation and constant communication with the market to understand its needs. The Sentry X solution provides proof of PRECO’s insight into the market’s needs once again.
