Product Research


Rearview Camera: The Accele RVCLPMS Rearview Camera is designed to provide you a clear wide-angle view from the rear of your vehicle. It can be used to assist you in backing up the vehicle, or to keep an eye on an item you are towing. It can be connected to a separate rear-view monitor or to many in-dash receivers with a composite video camera input.

Note: This camera is meant as a visual aid only; never solely rely on the camera. In addition to using the camera, always physically look to make sure everything is clear around your vehicle.

Compatibility: The Accele RVCLPMS rearview camera features a standard composite video output (RCA plug) which makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor featuring a composite video camera input.

Color CCD: The RVCLPMS' rearview camera features a color CCD image sensor with a 960p resolution. The rearview camera offers a 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angle providing an excellent field of vision behind you in your vehicle. The rearview camera provides minimum illumination 0.1 lux.

Parking Guidelines: The camera features a three-color grid to assist you in backing into a parking space. The grid features green, yellow, and red lines to help you determine how close you are to an obstacle. You can cut the thin white wire loop to turn off this feature.

Mounting Bracket: The RVCLPMS attaches to your vehicle's existing license plate frame with its integrated metal mounting bracket (screws not included). The camera can be angled up or down after it is installed. Make sure the sticker (labeled "Up") on the back of rearview camera bracket is facing the correction direction for proper viewing image orientation (otherwise, the viewing image will be upside down).

Wiring: The rearview camera features an attached 2' power/signal cable which connects to the supplied 22' composite video cable and 3' power/ground cable. The composite video cable is then routed from outside of the vehicle through your vehicle's interior to your vehicle's display monitor or optional stand-alone monitor. The power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired. Power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable). The ground will need to connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
