New camera system for SkyTrak telehandlers
By Mike Brezonick01 March 2021
JLG Industries, Inc. has introduced a multi-reverse camera system for its SkyTrak telehandlers. Designed to give operators more confidence when backing up, this optional feature increases job site awareness by displaying multiple views from behind the machine — left, right, and rear.
The SkyTrak multi-reverse camera system can be used for day or night operation and features three components: Left- and right-side backup cameras, rear backup camera and a tri-view monitor. The compact left- and right-side backup cameras mount to the back of the SkyTrak telehandler and provide a wide, 170° all-encompassing viewing angle behind the machine. Equipped with four infrared lights, the cameras provide high-quality pictures during day or night operation, the company said. The images are crisp and clear thanks to the 620 TV lines, and the completely waterproof encasing (IP68 rating) allows operators to use these cameras in all weather conditions, JLG said.
The RVS-812N 120° ultra-wide viewing angle backup camera has a 250,000-pixel, 2.1 mm lens with 30 infrared illuminators for superior night vision, enabling operators to see in total darkness, the company said. The diecast casing of the camera is completely waterproof (IP69K rating) to withstand all weather conditions, and the built-in heater can withstand temperatures to -49° F, keeping the camera warm in the coldest of climates.
The 7 in., tri-view monitor incorporates a TFT LCD digital color display with auto dimming for low light conditions. It is equipped with touch screen technology and is completely waterproof (IP69K rating).
The multi-reverse camera is currently available from the factory on new SkyTrak telehandlers.
