About the Jensen BUCAM200J
Back up with confidence
Back up with confidence
Take the "fingers crossed" feeling out of backing up by adding Jensen's BUCAM200J backup camera to your vehicle. The camera delivers a wide 170-degree horizontal view that's an invaluable aid when you're reversing into a tight spot.
The camera's composite video connection makes it a great match for almost all video receivers with a backup camera input. Jensen includes a 19-3/4' video cable that runs from the rear camera to the video screen (not included) in the front of your vehicle.
Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.
What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)
What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.
How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.
Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

Backup Camera: This rear-view camera can be installed on a variety of vehicles with an in-dash aftermarket video monitor. Your aftermarket in-dash monitor must feature a composite video camera input. The camera allows you to view what's behind your vehicle on your in-dash monitor's screen when you put your vehicle in reverse.
Note: This rear-view camera is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
CMOS Image Sensor: The rear-view camera employs a CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 640 x 480 (effective pixels). The image sensor also incorporates auto white balance.
Wide View Lens: The rear-view camera features a 170-degree wide view lens to help you see better behind your vehicle.
Low Light Visibility: The rear-view camera provides low-light visibility down to 0.5 lux.
Parking Guidelines: The rear-view camera provides parking guidelines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash monitor to help you back into a parking space. You can remove the parking guidelines by cutting the blue wire loop of the camera's attached power/video cable.
Composite Video: The rear-view camera comes with a 19.75' composite video cable to run from the camera to the composite video camera input of your vehicle's in-dash monitor.
Weather Resistant Housing: The rear-view camera utilizes a weather resistant zinc alloy housing with a IP67 rating.
Mounting Bracket: The rear-view camera comes with a bracket that allows you to mount the camera under a flat surface on the back of your vehicle. Two screws and self-adhesive tape are supplied. The mounting bracket allows you to adjust the angle of the camera up or down. The camera needs to be mounted from underneath the mounting surface with the screw-holes facing up, otherwise image from the camera will not be right side up.
Power Requirements: In addition to connecting the rear-view camera to your in-dash monitor's composite video camera input, you will also need to hardwire power and ground of the camera to your vehicle. 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 be connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.
