ASA Electronics has received another patent for its innovative technology, this time for its Auto-Pairing Wireless Camera System designed for tractor-trailer applications. This technology will seamlessly pair any combination of cabs and trailers, regardless of fleet size, if they are equipped with Voyager wireless monitors and cameras. Adapter kits can even convert competitors’ older wired systems to be compatible with this new wireless technology.
“This patent is just another example of how ASA Electronics differentiates itself from the competition by developing unique product in house. It helps separate the ASA Electronics name, as well as our Voyager brand name, from commodity systems and distributors that provide very little value to a fleet’s safety and operational programs,” says Justin Garver, National Accounts Manager.
ASA Electronics is excited about this patent because it provides its customers with peace of mind, knowing that ASA stands behind its products and builds them with customers in mind.
“Our customers love the system because it provides their drivers with an unmatched tool to combat every fleet’s most frequent accident – the backup accident. Driver acceptance and adoption is also very quick with this system because it protects their livelihood, while not requiring them to do anything out of the ordinary to achieve results,” Garver says.
Several factors went into developing this system, and perhaps the most important are cost and ease of use.
“The best thing about this system is the simplicity, and how that simplicity improves several cost factors associated with using older technology. We have removed the need to have a dedicated seven-way bulkhead connector between a tractor and trailer for an older camera system. The hardware costs of those components are eliminated off the top,” Garver explains.
Furthermore, he says that the fleet also saves through reduced maintenance and troubleshooting times on the service side since those components are recurring weak points in a wired setup.
