JLG improves rear views on SkyTrak telehandlers
By Jenny LescohierMarch 03, 2021
JLG Industries has introduced a new multi-reverse camera system for SkyTrak telehandlers that’s designed to give operators more confidence when backing up.
The optional feature increases job site awareness by displaying multiple views from behind the machine — left, right, and rear. The SkyTrak multi-reverse camera system can be used for day or night operation and features three components: Left- and right-side back-up cameras, rear back-up camera and a tri-view monitor.
The multi-reverse camera is currently available fitted from the factory on new SkyTrak telehandlers, which include seven models ranging from the Model 3013 with a maximum lifting capacity of 2,700 lbs and maximum lift height of 13 feet 1 inch, to the Model 12054 with a 12,000-lb. maximum lift capacity and a 53-foot 2-inch maximum lift height.
Left- and right-side back-up cameras
These compact back-up cameras mount to the back of the SkyTrak telehandler and provide a wide, 170° all-encompassing viewing angle behind the machine. Equipped with four infrared lights, the cameras provide high-quality pictures during day or night operation. According to JLG, the images are crisp and clear thanks to the 620 TV lines, and the completely waterproof encasing (IP68 rating) allows operators to use these cameras in all weather conditions.
Rear back-up camera
The RVS-812N 120° ultra-wide viewing angle backup camera is the highest quality camera available on the market today, JLG said. It boasts a 250,000-pixel, 2.1-mm lens with 30 infrared illuminators for superior night vision, enabling operators to see in total darkness. The diecast casing of the camera is completely waterproof (IP69K rating) to withstand all weather conditions, and the built-in heater can withstand temperatures to -49° F, keeping the camera warm in the coldest of climates.
The 7-inch, tri-view monitor features a TFT LCD digital color display with auto dimming for low light conditions. It is equipped with touch screen technology and is completely waterproof (IP69K rating).
