This matches our high resolution colour rear view monitor with our twin lens CCD reversing camera. We have options of white or black bodied camera with cable lengths of 5m, 10m, 12.5m, 15m and 20m. The system just requires connecting to a power source as the cameras get their power from the monitor. The MON293 clips over the existing rear view mirror. We do have versions available to fit the existing metal stub on the windscreen and you will find these in the vehicle specific systems.
The twin lens system is very popular on motorhomes. One lens points down for use when reversing. The second lens points up looking back down the road for reversing. The on/off button on the monitor can turn the system on whenever it is needed. There is a green trigger wire which when connected to the positive of the reversing light will turn the system to channel 2 when you go into reverse. It reverts back to what it was doing when you move out of reverse. Our version of the mirror monitor has the option to show guidelines which can be calibrated. We have also had the software changed so you can change channel when in reverse (previously you could not).
The 8mm disconnect points on the camera are designed to be internal. If they are external it is hard to prevent water getting into the connector. If you wish to run the cable over the roof then please seek advice. We normally have these cameras without the disconnect point.

Camera angles quoted are a calculated measurement based on the focal length of the lens and size of sensor. They are given as a diagonal measurement. When a camera displays on a monitor there is a certain amount of cropping to get the picture to fit. To overcome these issues we have measured the horizontal camera angle with the camera image displayed on a 7" high resolution screen. The angle given may be subject to change between batches so if it is critical then please ask us to double check. When comparing with other web sites please remember the camera angles are often exagerated.
Our measured horizontal camera angle for the narrow angled lens is 35 degrees and 85 degrees for the wide angled lens.
On all of our reversing camera systems we have a wide variety of cable and power options. The information below shows you what each option means.
5m 7.5m 10m 12.5m 15m 20m
These are our standard 4 pin extension cables. These options allow you to select what length you need. They are listed in metres, to get the length in feet simply multiply by 3 to change. Having longer than you need will not affect the picture, any extra cable should be coiled loosely where it cannot get damaged.
10M 8mm link, 12.5M 8mm link, 15M 8mm link
These are our 12.5m or 15m cables with an 8mm link at the front of the cable - designed to disconnect to help running through any tight gaps, then reconnected at the end of the install once you are next to the monitor.
We do an adaptor to fit the Waeco cables that are pre-installed in Bailey Motorhomes. It converts their cable into our standard 4 pin ones. We have single camera and dual camera versions.
Stand style bracket
This is useful on our HD series of monitors where a curved dash makes mounting the U-bracket difficult. It also makes it faster and easier to remove the monitor.
Easy wire fuse tap a.k.a "piggyback fuse holders"
These can be used to take power from the fuse board. The earth should be to a point where there is bare metal to the vehicle body. The cable is about 2M long and terminates in a 2.1mm/5.5mm power plug, which fits in to the corresponding socket on the monitor wiring. We stock these in different blade sizes, please select the type of fuse tap that is fitted to your fusebox.
