ASA Electronics awarded patent on Wireless Auto-Pairing System
ASA Electronics has received a new patent for their Auto-Pairing Wireless Camera System designed for tractor-trailer applications. According to ASA, this technology will seamlessly pair any combination of cabs and trailers, regardless of fleet size, if they are equipped with Voyager wireless monitors and cameras. Adapter kits can even convert competitors’ older wired systems to be compatible with this new wireless technology.
“This patent is just another example of how ASA Electronics differentiates itself from the competition by developing unique product in-house. It helps separate the ASA Electronics name, as well as our Voyager brand name, from commodity systems and distributors that provide very little value to a fleet’s safety and operational programs,” Justin Garver, National Accounts Manager said.
ASA Electronics says they are excited about this patent because it provides their customers with peace of mind, knowing that ASA stands behind their products and builds them with their customer in mind.
“Our customers love the system because it provides their drivers with an unmatched tool to combat every fleet’s most frequent accident – the backup accident. Driver acceptance and adoption is also very quick with this system because it protects their livelihood, while not requiring them to do anything out of the ordinary to achieve results,” Garver said.
According to ASA, several factors went into developing this system, with perhaps the most significant being cost and ease of use.
“The best thing about this system is the simplicity, and how that simplicity improves several cost factors associated with using older technology. We have removed the need to have a dedicated 7-way bulkhead connector between a tractor and trailer for an older camera system. The hardware costs of those components are eliminated off the top,” Garver explained.
Furthermore, Garver added that fleets will save through reduced maintenance and troubleshooting time on the service side since those components are recurring weak points in a traditional wired setup.
