MINNEAPOLIS--()--Cirus Controls SpreadSmart Rx Touch™ electronic spreader controls are now available with a dual-camera-ready, 10-inch touch-screen color display. In addition to helping improve safety by offering better visibility at the rear, side or other hard-to-see areas on winter maintenance vehicles, the display eliminates the need to integrate a separate display for in-cab cameras.
“The use of cameras on winter maintenance vehicles has been an important development in our industry as a way to improve the safety of drivers and the general public”
Up to two NTSC camera inputs can be integrated. Camera outputs are displayed in the lower half of the SpreadSmart Rx Touch electronic spreader controls display. A single touch to a specific camera thumbnail view provides full-screen viewing, and an optional remote trigger offers the ability to automatically switch to full-screen views when shifting into reverse (rear camera) or when using a turn signal (side camera). Additionally, the new 10-inch touch display works with multiple NTSC camera brands, including Brigrade, EnduraCam and others.
“The use of cameras on winter maintenance vehicles has been an important development in our industry as a way to improve the safety of drivers and the general public,” said Paul Mortell, president of Cirus Controls. “SpreadSmart Rx Touch takes safety a step further by integrating spreader controls and cameras into one display, making it easier for drivers to focus on the road while operating the controls. It also helps fleets save money by eliminating the need to purchase and maintain a separate camera display.”
In addition to camera integration, the primary function of SpreadSmart Rx Touch electronic spreader controls is to precisely meter and control the spreading rates of salt, sand and liquid materials used by winter maintenance vehicles. Optional packages offer the ability to capture, download and organize data on system operation and location that can be used to help reduce materials consumption, optimize routes, and make other performance and cost-efficiency improvements.
“SpreadSmart is a time-tested platform that we’ve been producing and improving for over 10 years,” said Mortell. “Part of the reason we chose the platform for camera integration was to provide owners and managers with the reassurance that their camera systems will continue to be supported in the future.”
