This matches our heavy duty AHD dash monitor with our AHD twin lens camera. AHD offers higher resolution images and better night vision. The monitors use a high brightness 1024 x 600 panel with wide viewing angles. The system is for use both reversing and for continuous rear view. It has a trigger wire which if connected to the reversing light will bring up the reversing camera automatically. It should be noted that AHD systems switch slower than the standard CVBS ones. The monitor will accept both CVBS and AHD cameras.
The optional bracket is useful if your dash has curves that prevent the use of the U-shaped one supplied.
The lighter plug is useful in testing and setting up the system.
The hard wire fuse tap is one way of obtaining power for the system without cutting wires.
The following pictures show screen shots of this system in various situations. We use a mobile phone for these pictures as they seem to offer the best results. One problem we come across is you get "interefernce patterns" on the photograph that are not there on the actual monitor. Also the night views tend to be a little more blurred than the actually are. The results though will give an impression of what you will see.
This shows a day view taken with the narrow angled lens. The 120 degree angle gives a view at least 10 foot back and well past the width of the vehicle.
We took this photograph on a very dark night in an area with no background lighting. The vehicle lights were on and with the aide of the camera IR LEDs it gives a clear view behind. An ideal aid if you need to reverse down dark country lanes at night.
With this photograph we took a picture in an area of total darkness showing the narrow angled lens. This is the most demanding light levels so when you have moon light or street lighting the picture would be much better.
