Allentown, Penn. — Continental, a leading global supplier of systems, components, and tires to automobile, truck, and agriculture/construction equipment manufacturers, and a trusted provider of original-equipment (OE)-engineered aftermarket parts, now offers an Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit that can be retrofitted to or incorporated as OEM for virtually any vehicle including commercial vehicles, RVs, and off-highway, agricultural, material handling equipment.

Audible and visual warnings

Out of the box, the Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit provides an audible alarm to the operator when the vehicle comes within 10 feet of an object and beeps faster as the driver gets closer to the obstacle. The kit can also be customized for specific distance intervals to meet OEM specifications.

This innovative back-up system delivers a voice announcement of object distance at specific intervals and easily integrates with on-board camera/monitor systems. When paired with a back-up camera system, a monitor will display an overlay, revealing the active sensor(s) and the object distance from that sensor.

“Back-up sensors are an essential component of operator and workplace safety in modern vehicles,” notes Jared Hall, Continental Product Manager. “The Continental Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit can be fitted to a wide variety of vehicles including commercial trucks, buses, RVs, fire trucks, garbage trucks, and agricultural vehicles, as well as construction, mining, and material handling equipment.”

The Continental Ultrasonic Back-Up Sensor Kit is easy to set up and simple to configure as a retrofit or original equipment installation. The kit includes four sensors, a central control unit, and a speaker. Cameras, and monitors are available from Continental as options.
