What the Competition Calls Innovation, We Have Been Calling Standard for the last 40 Years

Recently, one of our competitors announced the unveiling of its new backup camera that features a heater to enable it to function in the snow and rain. At INTEC Video Systems, Inc., we have been using heaters in our line of mobile video safety products for almost 40 years. Our extensive experience in rear view camera systems helps drivers operate commercial vehicles with peace-of-mind throughout the year.

We learned a long time ago that condensation of moisture is possible in hot, cold or even mild weather conditions. With moisture being a major culprit of camera failure, we installed a heater inside the camera housing to keep it dry and prevent the glass window from fogging up. In winter climates, the heater is essential to keep the system operational.

To further prevent moisture from damaging the system’s components, a proprietary material is used to seal the entire casing of the mobile video safety system. This industrial strength sealing even meets military specifications. This is an important layer of protection especially for the system’s camera windows and connectors. Even monitors are sealed because vehicle cabs have a tendency to get wet especially when drivers are frequently stepping in and out of their vehicles in the rain or snow.

INTEC mobile video safety systems are IP68 certified to ensure protection from water intrusion. This third-party certification confirms that our systems can operate under a full meter of water for extended periods of time, and every component is fully water tank tested. These protective measures incorporated in INTEC systems are a cut above other camera and monitor systems on the market that are not designed specifically for industrial applications. Those systems, often based on consumer designs, consist of substandard materials, which become brittle over time and require frequent replacement. This is a significant financial issue when compared with the long-lasting durability of INTEC systems.

In terms of reliability, these protective features incorporated into INTEC mobile video safety systems significantly enhance the commercial vehicle’s overall performance. The system helps drive revenue and efficiency for mining, construction, refuse collection, EMS and public transportation companies. A system designed to withstand demanding work environments makes a difference in safety and dependability that will support a vehicle throughout its operational life.
