Parking Sensor Installation
WHERE TO FIND US
We now offer parking sensor installation at our garage in Quintrell Downs, near Newquay.
Rear Parking Sensors Fitting
It is important that parking sensor fitting is done correctly. There are subtle bumper styling changes between different car/van makes and models. We know the best place to fit your sensors taking into account the shape of the vehicle bumper, how high it sits off the road, and physical bumper obstructions.
Each individual sensor has a 20cm connection. This is a sign of quality, meaning that if a sensors proves to be faulty then that one can be replaced without rewiring the whole system.
How Parking Sensors Work
Ultrasonic parking sensors work by sending out an ultrasonic pulse. Each sensor also has the ability to read these pulses as they bounce back after hitting objects. The brain then reads these returned signals and outputs the information to either a buzzer or screen.
Our 4 ultrasonic sensor system, fitted without a display, uses a buzzer to indicate how close an object is. As you reverse there are generally 4 stages of beeps: Our 4 ultrasonic sensor system, fitted without a display, uses a buzzer to indicate how close an object is. As you reverse there are generally 4 stages of beeps:
2m to 1.6m- no sound
1.5m to 1.0m – beep—–beep—–beep
0.9m to 0.5m – beep—–beep—–beep
0.4m to 0.3m – beep—beep—beep
0.2m- beep (continuous sound)
Generally the beeps become quicker (more persistent) as objects become closer.
