We are pleased to announce the new launch of SideScan®Flex. The 4-sensor system is fitted to the side of a vehicle to detect objects in the nearside blind spot, where cyclists or pedestrians can otherwise go undetected.
An advancement to the standard SideScan® system, SideScan®Flex allows the operator to choose from 4 detection configurations*, each with different detection distances and audible and visual alerts. In addition, SideScan®Flex has an increased maximum detection range of 8 feet. *Set at time of installation
In extending our SideScan® product range we are offering more variants providing drivers less overload and stress while still providing the capability to detect vulnerable road users (VRUs) when operating at a low speed. A visual and audible alert will activate when there is an object detected, prompting action to be taken.
|Adjustable audible and visual warning settings||4 different settings to reduce false alarms and suit driver preference|
|Output trigger||Activate other safety-aid systems when a cyclist is being detected e.g. side cameras, external alarms, additional lights and events trigger for recording devices (MDR)|
|Mute function||The buzzer will silence after 4 seconds if there is no movement from a detected object or vehicle|
|Environment learning mode||Prevents false alarms from ancillary equipment that intrudes in the first 100cm of the detection zone|
|Compatible with speed trigger module LS-60-A||The side detection system can be activated under the specific speed|
|Compatible with turn indicator switch TS-001||The side detection system can be activated only when the indicator is on|
