MONTREAL – A new multi-camera operator vision system from RMT Equipment is “jobsite rated” to increase safe operation in the largest heavy duty equipment operations.
The Track-Vision systems from RMT are equipped to connect up to four cameras to a single monitor. According to Marc Lefebvre, sales manager for RMT, “Installing a four-camera system on your mining truck or crushing plant is as easy as setting up one backup camera. You just run the insulated cable from the camera and plug it in.”
Lefebvre says that safety conscious equipment owners are now equipping more machines with multiple cameras to bring rear and side views of the jobsite into the cab along with “tool views, with the camera mounted all round the machine or on a primary or secondary crusher or conveyor system.”
Track-Vision monitors borrow a page from the security camera industry by offering operators a choice of displays for the images from their cameras. Using the ‘’quad box option’’, display modes include a fixed view of a single selected camera, or an auto-mode which rotates through all cameras in sequence, or a split screen view which displays all camera images together.
Track-Vision monitors are built specifically for the working conditions faced by heavy equipment. The brightness of the monitors will adjust automatically to ambient light, ensuring clarity and reducing operator fatigue throughout long duty cycles in any season. An integrated sun visor is included in all models. The LED displays are housed in fully watertight enclosures to prevent moisture and humidity from clouding the view or damaging internal electronics. They are proven resistant to impacts and vibration and they have tested successfully in temperatures ranging from –40°C to +85°C.
For additional reliability, the monitors are equipped with built-in surge protection and filtering to insulate internal components from uneven power supply. All Track-Vision monitors are compatible with both 12 V and 24 V electrical systems.
