Rosco Introduces Waterproof Backup Camera System for Rescue Vehicles

July 20th, 2013

Queens, NY – July 20, 2013 – Rosco, Inc. introduces a Waterproof Backup Camera System ideal for rescue vehicles such as ambulances, fire engines, aerial ladder fire trucks, fire tankers and pumpers. Rescue vehicles face unique challenges with blind spots and harsh environments that require a durable system. Rosco Backup Camera Systems assist first response drivers in facing these challenges as they navigate accident scenes, alleys, busy streets, and tight turns. Rosco products provide rear or side views for greater all-around visibility during operations. They heighten driver awareness of first responders and pedestrians near and around the vehicle. Using a single backup camera system with multiple cameras, first response drivers can quickly assess conditions to the rear or side, discovering potential hazards quickly.  The waterproof monitor and heavy-duty heated camera function optimally to provide the clearest view in the wettest and harshest conditions.

“The STSK7360 Waterproof Backup Camera System is perfect for rescue vehicles backing into tight spots or moving in reverse when visibility is limited. It also has the capacity for an additional interior or side camera and is completely waterproof.” said Peter Plate, Rosco’s Director of Sales & Marketing.    

Rosco STSK7360 Backup Camera Systems are complete with a 7” full-color LCD monitor and all necessary wiring harnesses, cables and mounting accessories.  The backup camera provides a clear, ultra-sharp display in day or night conditions. The heated heavy-duty weatherproof camera gives a 120° diagonal wide-angle view behind the vehicle covering the driver’s personal danger zone. The STSK7360 four (4) camera inputs and triggers are controlled internally by the monitor for less connections (no external control boxes), greater reliability, and ease of installation.  The monitor includes Quad, Tri, Split, or Single screen options.  A two point monitor mount provides greater vibration free hold, shock and vibration resistance while the twist lock o-ring sealed non-metallic connectors provide superior moisture protection and corrosion resistance.  The system is completely weather proof and water pressure tested with an IP67K rating, shock and impact resistant, and comes with a one (1) year warranty.  All other camera options and accessories are sold separately. 

Backup Camera Systems prevent injuries and save lives. An efficient rearview camera can also end up saving fleets money by preventing accidents, expensive repairs and insurance claims. Considering the nominal cost, Rosco Backup Camera Systems have become a necessity for all vehicle fleets. Theaverage backing collision claim costs thousands of dollars if just the vehicle or property has been damaged, and hundreds of thousands if not millions if personal injury occurs. Rosco is a leader in the rear view camera industry and offers a wide selection of products designed to improve the safety for drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
