We Are You’re Backup: New Truck Reverse Camera Kits

VHEDIA’s new Truck Reverse Camera Kits aim to enhance safety, efficiency, and compliance for trucks and similar large vehicles. By providing drivers with better visibility and awareness while reversing, these systems help mitigate risks and improve overall road safety, thus maintaining a truck’s high usefulness.

Why do you need a truck reverse camera kit?

A truck reverse camera, also known as a truck backup camera, is an essential safety feature for several reasons:

Visibility

Large trucks often have blind spots, especially directly behind them. A backup camera provides a clear view of the area behind the truck, helping the driver see obstacles, pedestrians, or other vehicles that may not be visible in the mirrors alone.

Preventing Accidents

Accidents involving trucks backing up can be particularly severe due to the size and weight of the vehicle. A reverse camera helps drivers avoid collisions with objects or people, reducing the risk of accidents and associated injuries or property damage.

Increased Precision

A backup camera allows for more precise positioning when maneuvering tight spaces or coupling trailers. This can help drivers avoid damaging the truck or surrounding objects and make the process more efficient.

Compliance with Regulations

In some regions, regulations mandate the installation of backup cameras on commercial vehicles and significantly larger trucks. Using a reverse camera ensures compliance with these regulations and helps companies avoid fines or penalties.

Enhanced Driver Confidence

Driving a large truck can be challenging, especially when reversing. Having a reverse camera gives drivers additional confidence and peace of mind, knowing they have a clear view of what’s behind them.

Installing a truck reverse camera kit

Installing a truck reverse camera involves several steps. Here’s a general guide:

Choose the Camera and Monitor

Select a suitable reverse camera system for your truck (we already gave you an idea of what to choose). Consider factors such as camera resolution, viewing angle, night vision capabilities, and whether you want a wired or wireless system. Also, choose a compatible monitor to view the camera feed inside the truck’s cab.

Plan Camera Placement

Decide where to mount the camera on the truck’s rear. The ideal location provides a clear view of the area behind the vehicle and minimises blind spots. Common mounting locations include above the rear license plate, on the rear bumper, or on the back of the truck body.

Mount the Camera

Securely install the camera according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This typically involves drilling holes for mounting screws and routing the camera’s wiring to the inside of the truck.

Connect Wiring

Run the camera’s wiring from the truck’s rear to the cab’s inside. Depending on the system, you may need to route the wiring through existing openings or create new ones. Connect the camera’s wiring to the monitor and power source following the provided instructions.

Install the Monitor

Mount the monitor inside the truck’s cab conveniently for the driver. Common mounting locations include the dashboard, windshield, or overhead console. Secure the monitor using the provided mounting hardware.

Connect Power and Signal

Connect the monitor to power and ground according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Depending on the system, this may involve wiring the monitor directly to the vehicle’s electrical system or using a separate power adapter. Connect the monitor to the camera using the provided cables.

Test the System

Before finalising the installation, test the reverse camera system to ensure everything works correctly. Check the camera feed on the monitor to verify that the image is clear and properly aligned.

Secure and Conceal Wiring

Once you’ve confirmed the system is working, secure any loose wiring and conceal it to prevent damage and ensure a neat installation. Use wire looms, cable ties, or other appropriate methods to organise and protect finalised.

Finalise Installation

Double-check all connections and mounting hardware to ensure everything is secure. Adjust the camera angle if necessary to optimise visibility. Once satisfied with the installation, tidy up any remaining loose ends and complete any finishing touches.

Test Again

Perform a final test of the reverse camera system to ensure it functions correctly before using it in real-world driving situations.

Vhedia Truck Reverse Camera Kits

Vhedia offers wired and wireless backup camera options to fit trucks and similar vehicles (e.g. construction equipment, school buses, fire trucks, etc). The choice depends on the reverse camera solution you’re looking for. Wired reverse cameras give a more stable connection and, thus, clearer images on the screen. However, if you’re looking for a cheaper option and/or have a longer vehicle, then the Wireless reverse camera kit may be the one for you.

Still, both are built tough, easy to install and offer HD resolution to users. They give you the best bang for your buck and give you the best reason to get one now!
