Rostra Precision Controls introduced a new RearSight back-up camera system designed for use in fleet vehicles.

The RearSight kit features a 5-inch TFT-LCD monitor that mounts directly in the vehicle's headliner to display with a large, wide angle view for drivers. The monitor has a reverse override function as well as dual video inputs for navigation, interior camera and/or DVD.

A heavy-duty, waterproof color image camera provides a 150-degree wide-angle view behind the vehicle that is transferred to the in-cab monitor. The camera features auto infrared for night vision and a heavy duty bracket with a 5-foot harness, which allows users to easily adjust the camera's angle.

"Large fleet trucks and vans can be difficult to maneuver when they're in reverse, making our heavy duty RearSight camera a useful tool for helping fleet drivers maintain control of their vehicles and avoid backing accidents," said Sibyl Ringsdorf, manager of marketing and national accounts, Rostra Precision Controls. "RearSight works by alerting drivers to objects that are in their blind spots or that are too close to the ground to be detected, helping to prevent accidents before they occur."

Rostra offers a three-year/36,000 mile warranty on the new RearSight kit. Professional installation is recommended.
