EchoMaster's latest release is a new rear camera series, PCAM-CHMSL, that can keep an eye on your valuables while in transit and even help you when attaching a trailer hitch. Let’s take a look at some of the details and frequently-asked questions about this type of rear camera!
What Is It?
Let’s break it down. CHMSL is a Center High-Mounted Stop Lamp – the third brake light mounted on top of a truck’s cab. The camera itself is built to be totally waterproof, and it mounts underneath your third brake light for a high mount, downward pointing view of your truck bed – without disabling your third brake light.
Why Do I Need It?
Ever spent 15 minutes attaching a gooseneck trailer because you couldn’t get the right angle on your truck bed? How about a three-hour cargo haul worrying that your supplies had shaken loose and were about to pop out of your tailgate? The EchoMaster CHMSL camera gives you valuable peace of mind. By connecting through your cab to your choice of displays, you can view the contents of your truck bed or view your trailer simply and easily, allowing you to maintain total control of what you’re hauling.
Will I be able to see at night and in the rain?
Yes! This camera is IP67 waterproof and debris-proof, allows a wide, 75° viewing angle, and can operate in extremely low-light conditions – down to 0.1 LUX.
