ASA adds proximity sensor system

ASA Electronics has expanded its line of sensor systems with the CVPS18 four-channel system. The CVPS18 is an easy, economical way to outfit virtually any vehicle with the latest safety technology.

The four ultrasonic, weatherproof sensors are easy to install and can be painted to match the color of a vehicle, making them a universal solution for aftermarket applications.

“We saw such success with our earlier sensor systems, but because they are calibrated systems they really need to be installed at the factory level. We wanted to create a sensor system that could make this important safety feature more accessible to our customers,” said Joe Camacho, ASA Electronics vice president of the Commercial Vehicle Division.

CVPS18 sensors are designed to detect objects within a five-foot range of the rear bumper without requiring any calibration to aid in backing up or parking the vehicle. When the vehicle is in reverse, the sensors will trigger a speaker in the cab to emit an audible alert if an object should happen to get too close.

As the vehicle continues to back up, or as the object moves closer, the beeping will get more frequent. If the object comes within 16 inches of the bumper, a solid tone will sound. Audio speaker has three volume levels—low, high and off—to suit driver preferences.

The CVPS18 sensor system can be used in conjunction with other Voyager observation products, like backup cameras and monitors, to create a comprehensive safety system.

ASA Electronics has been designing and manufacturing mobile electronic products for industries including commercial vehicles and buses since 1977. Its proprietary brands are Voyager, JENSEN, JENSEN Heavy Duty, JENSEN Marine, iN∙Command, Marine Audio and ADVENT Air. The firm is also a distributor in specialty markets for SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Polk Ultramarine, Klipsch and XKGLOW products.
