Camera system

The Heavy Duty Blind Zone Camera System displays rear views from up to three different waterproof cameras. The system comes with a 7-in. LCD monitor, a monitor mount, 25 feet of cable and a right-side camera. The monitor can be powered by either a 12-volt or 24-volt connection. The camera comes encased in a chrome-colored housing. DC triggers such as left and right turn signals and the reverse gear activate the camera system, which can also be manually operated. The camera and monitor combination offers views in real time, and the components have been tested to withstand vibration, moisture and temperature changes, the company says.
