Continental Introduces Ultrasonic Backup-Sensor Kit


Recommended Posts

Continental now offers an ultrasonic backup-sensor kit that can be retrofitted to or incorporated as OEM for virtually any vehicle including commercial vehicles, RVs and off-highway, agricultural and material-handling equipment.

Out of the box, the ultrasonic backup-sensor kit provides an audible alarm to the operator when the vehicle comes within 10 feet of an object and beeps faster as the driver gets closer to the obstacle. The kit also can customized for specific distance intervals to meet OEM specifications.

The innovative backup system delivers a voice announcement of object distance at specific intervals and easily integrates with on-board camera/monitor systems, according to Continental. When paired with a backup camera system, a monitor will display an overlay, revealing the active sensor(s) and the object distance from that sensor.

“Backup sensors are an essential component of operator and workplace safety in modern vehicles,” notes Jared Hall, Continental product manager. “The Continental ultrasonic back-up-sensor kit can be fitted to a wide variety of vehicles including commercial trucks, buses, RVs, fire trucks, garbage trucks and agricultural vehicles, as well as construction, mining and material handling equipment.”

The Continental ultrasonic backup-sensor kit is easy to set up and simple to configure as a retrofit or original equipment installation, according to the company. The kit includes four sensors, a central control unit and a speaker. Cameras, and monitors are available from Continental as options.

      It’s been estimated that fraudulent warranty claims cost auto parts stores $600 million every year.
      Those costs stem from a number of expenses that are set in motion by a return, including manually processing credits; reverse logistics and transportation; repackaging products; and additional quality-control testing to rule out major defects in materials.
      The “Check the Part” campaign estimates that more than 50% of warranty returns are either brand-new or not the manufacturer’s product – which suggests that many parts professionals aren’t even looking at the item that’s being returned.
      Endorsed by MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers and the Auto Care Association, the campaign encourages parts professionals to follow a simple three-step process when processing warranty returns:
      Open the box. Inspect the part. Verify the return. Recently, Dorman Products published a return guide for CV-joint kits.
      If a customer wants to return a CV-joint kit, Dorman offers these three tips to help to determine if it’s a valid warranty claim:
      Open the box and make sure the correct part is in the box. Some customers may try to return unrelated products and heavy objects as a scam. Dorman parts will be laser-etched with the part number as shown. OEM parts or parts from other manufacturers are not valid returns. Some joints come lubricated from the factory. Others have grease supplied. Grease must be installed in all cases. No joint can last without lubricant! Verify grease was present – the unit should be pretty messy when returned. If you see rust, blue discoloration or distorted components, it’s likely the joint had too little grease and thus is ineligible to be returned.

      AMSOIL has added a new 0W-40 viscosity to its line of OE 100% synthetic motor oil to better meet the emerging demands of advanced automotive technology.
      The new OE 0W-40 is primarily for newer RAM HD trucks equipped with the 6.4-liter Hemi engine, AMSOIL noted.

      AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil is specifically designed to deliver maximum wear protection, fuel economy and emissions control for the longer drain intervals recommended by OE manufacturers, according to the company.  
      The motor oil is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet and exceed the requirements commonly found in owner’s manuals. AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil also is friendly toward modern emissions-control systems to promote proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions, according to
      link hidden, please login to view.   Low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) is a common issue found in today’s advanced engines and is much more destructive than typical pre-ignition. OE 100% synthetic motor oil achieved 100% protection against low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI), based on testing required by the GM dexos 1 Gen 2 specification. 
      The motor oil provides 47% more wear protection than required by the GM dexos 1 Gen 2 specification, based on independent testing cited by AMSOIL.
      “AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil has a 100% synthetic, pure chemical structure engineered to remove harmful contaminants and provide long-lasting engine protection and performance,” AMSOIL said in a news release. “It features an advanced detergent and dispersant additive package designed to protect against sludge and deposits to deliver maximum engine cleanliness.”
      AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil is available in the following viscosities: 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30 and 0W-40.

      Lumileds has introduced the Philips GoPure GP5611 automotive air purifier, designed to clean air quickly and efficiently to reduce the transmission of airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens.
      Designed to fit in most vehicle cup holders, the USB-powered GP5611 filters the cabin air with three technologies: a Philips SaniFilter Plus filter, a HESAMax filtration cartridge and a powerful UVC light, according to Lumileds.  
      The Philips SaniFilter Plus filter captures bacteria and respiratory viruses as well as airborne allergens including pollen, dust mites, mold spores and pet dander. It features an anti-microbial layer to inhibit the growth of microorganisms inside the device, including mold spores.
      The SaniFilter Plus filter has been tested at IUTA laboratory in Germany and proven to capture 99% of ultra-fine particles, including particles as small as 0.004 microns that can get deep into the lungs and create serious health risks, according to Lumileds.
      The Philips HESAMax cartridge (high-efficiency sorbent agent) removes chemicals, harmful gases and unpleasant odors from the car, including formaldehyde, toluene and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The cartridge contains two types of HESA material: white beads that draw formaldehyde from the air, break it down and safely lock it within the cartridge; and black carbon beads that absorb unpleasant smells.
      For an added layer of protection, bacteria and viruses trapped in the GP5611 filters are killed by exposing them to ultraviolet light, according to Lumileds. UVC light has been used for sterilization in hospitals, hotels and public transportation for decades.
      Lumileds noted that the GoPure GP5611 UVC LED technology emits zero ozone.
      “The GoPure GP5611 is powerful enough to filter all the air in an average passenger vehicle in about 10 minutes, and since it fits in most vehicle cup holders, you can be up and running in less than a minute,” said Aubry Baugh, Lumileds senior manager, aftermarket marketing leader, NA.
      In typical use, the SaniFilter Plus and HESAMax filters only need to be replaced about once a year. The UVC LED module will last for the lifetime of the device, according to the company.
