Weigh to go with new onboard units from VPG 22 February 2013

Vishay Precision Group's VPG on-board weighing product group has partnered with VUE, the vehicle CCTV, tracking, and telematics firm, to improve its 1300 BulkWeigh and 1300 WasteWeigh systems.

As a result of the collaboration, the new PM 1300 360-VUE systems offer enhanced health and safety and security features, through video data recording, with support for eight cameras, including near side, far side, front, rear, and load.

The BulkWeigh and WasteWeigh onboard weighing systems, each of which uses the new indicator, comes equipped with three cameras and support for an additional five to provide drivers with a 360° view.

For increased safety, when the vehicle slows below 15mph and the left turn indicator is on, the systems automatically defaults to the near-side camera. This gives the driver a clear view of the blind spot, helping to avoid accidents with pedestrians and cyclists.

The reverse camera also features new technology that corrects the fish eye effect, providing drivers with a clear, undistorted rear view.
