Consistent and Trusted Solutions for the Utility Industry

In many cases, the utility industry operates in fast paced, highly populated environments full of distractions and potentially dangerous situations. Providing blind spot awareness to utility operators allows them to focus on the job at hand; increasing workplace efficiency and reducing potential accidents, vehicle downtime, and legal repercussions.

PRECO’s PreView Sentry® has been developed with a detection zone that compliments the confinements that often face vehicles in the Utility industry. For larger vehicles traveling on high traffic roadways, the Preview Side Defender®II provides additional protection for side blind spots. We also have a wide selection of PreView camera/monitor systems to help ensure your fleet is FMVSS 111 compliant.

Since each vehicle type has different needs, we recommend contacting a PRECO Safety Specialist to discuss the specific requirements of your vehicles.

Utility Case Study

An Oregon City Utility Tests Its Backup Cameras to Meet New Federal Regulations, and Is Surprised by the Results

“Our calculations from the tests we ran showed that a backup camera’s view range needed to be at least 170 degrees to meet the new standards. Other cameras we looked at had ranges between 130-150 degrees—not enough to provide the required close-up view behind the vehicle. We did our research and found that PRECO’s PreView Mini Cam could go all the way up to 180 degrees—and met the response time criteria as well.”
