Product Research

Specs and Dimensions


Chassis: The camera is built into a compact waterproof aluminum case, making it perfect for mounting outside the vehicle.

C-MOS Imager: The 1/4" color C-MOS imager has approximately 307,200 pixels (640 x 480 pixels) and delivers a high quality picture.

Wide Angle Lens: The 130° horizontal and 111° vertical viewing angles provide an excellent near field view of anything behind you.

Automatic Sensitivity Compensation: The camera automatically adjusts to the available light, from 1.0 lux to 100,000 lux. The 1.0 lux rating ensures you'll have visibility at night in low light, while the 100,000 lux rating means the picture won't be washed out in bright sunlight.

Connections: The rear view camera features an attached 36" cable with a proprietary connector that plugs into the supplied 21.5' power/ground/video harness. The harness then plugs into your vehicle's monitor via a composite video RCA connector. The harness also features a power lead that will need to be hardwired to your vehicle's electrical system and a ground wire that will need to be grounded to a section of bare metal of your vehicle.

Mounting: The rear view camera comes supplied with a metal mounting bracket that allows the camera to swivel up and down. The bracket attaches to the camera using two supplied machine screws and then attaches to a flat, clean surface of your vehicle with the supplied two sided tape.

Compatibility: The rear view camera's standard composite video output (RCA plug) makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor featuring a rear view camera input.
