Stoneridge-Orlaco complements its digital product line for off-highway machines, ranging from digital mirror replacement systems to universally applicable smart Ethernet solutions.
New Real time digital 7 in. monitor
At bauma 2019, Stoneridge-Orlaco will present a new 7 in. HLED monitor with a fresh new design to complement the current real time digital (GMSL) product range. Up till now the GMSL product line was focused on the popular CornerEye system with a 10 in. HLED monitor, eliminating blind spots to the front and side of the truck cabin with one single camera. The single components are universal applicable and can be used on various heavy duty vehicles.
Due to its more compact size, the 7 in. HLED is better suited for rearview solutions in wheel loaders, excavators, mobile cranes and other mobile equipment found on construction and mining sites. The new monitor is a complete new design compared to the current 10 in. HLED. Its full front glass coating and responsive capacitive keypad do not only give the monitor a much more modern look and feel, it also improves the overall environmental protection. The full glass cover makes the new monitor a lot stronger, easier to clean and watertight (IP69K). With an operational temperature of -40-85 C (-40-185 F), the high environmental protection and compact size makes the 7 in. HLED monitor a perfect fit for the demanding environments in which it will be used.
With the 7 in. monitor, the real time digital product portfolio consists of heavy duty digital cameras (apertures varying from 30-180 degrees), cables with waterproof molded connectors, a rugged switcher and monitors (7 and 10 in.).
Expanding the Ethernet product portfolio
At the same time Stoneridge-Orlaco will introduce a lot of new Ethernet products: like cameras, monitors and a Wireless Sender Receiver.
First launched at bauma 2016, the EMOS camera (100BASE-TX) is now also available as EMOS BroadR-Reach Ethernet camera (100BASE-T1). Designed for rugged environments, the EMOS in both options is highly suitable for off-road applications. Both EMOS Ethernet cameras are available in various apertures varying from 30-180 degrees. Both are also available with IR filters (60 and 120 degrees only), which makes them suitable for night vision solutions.
The all-new Ethernet ELED monitor has a full front glass coating and a responsive capacitive keypad. This means the monitor is dust and watertight (IP69K) and operational in temperatures from -40-85 C (-40-185 F). The monitor will be available in two sizes (7 and 10 in.) and is suited for both Fast Ethernet as well as automotive (BroadR-Reach) EMOS cameras. The new Ethernet monitors have a direct input for radar without the need for an interface. This is an important feature especially for construction equipment, where proximity detection is of growing importance.
Rugged wireless digital video transfer with a minimum delay (only 10ms added!) is possible with the new Ethernet Wireless Sender Receiver (WiSR). With a wireless connection reaching at least 150 m (492 ft.), the WiSR is targets the construction crane market. The WiSR supports both the Stoneridge-Orlaco HE-E Zoom camera as well as the EMOS Ethernet camera.
To complete the Ethernet portfolio Stoneridge-Orlaco will shortly introduce Ethernet-based smart cameras and ECUs focusing on human and object detection based on convolutional neural networks. The great advantage of these yet to come products is that they can be trained to classify images for any application. The main benefits for the user are improved warning systems which will improve job site safety and surrounding analysis for higher efficiency.
Mirror replacement with MirrorEye
For the first time at bauma, Stoneridge-Orlaco will present MirrorEye to the off-road market. MirrorEye is an integrated system of cameras and digital displays as an alternative to conventional rear-vision mirrors, which was specifically designed for the on-road truck market and highly appraised at the leading commercial vehicle show IAA in Hannover last year. Anticipating a major shift in the construction market when it comes to conventional external mirrors, MirrorEye is currently being tested for off-road applications.
