Changing the landscape of on-road safety
The PreView Side Defender II from Preco Electronics is a side collision-avoidance radar designed to eliminate nuisance alerts, reduce lane-change accidents, and mitigate incidents in urban settings by monitoring your blind spot. It detects moving vulnerable road users while ignoring stationary objects, resulting in safer driving for truckers in crowded, low-speed urban settings. It also provides on-road lane-change blind spot protection through the system’s two intelligent operating modes. The new PreView v2 in-cab display equips drivers with more intuitive audible and visual alerts. The system’s slow speed functionality provides reliability and active safety alerts for over-the-road drivers. To get more information and to order, visit Preco.com or call 866-977-7326.
Multiple-use alarm system
The CarPro-Tec GPS Plus from AMG-Security Technology is a wireless vehicle alarm system combined with a GPS tracker in one device. The system uses a room volume sensor to register any change in a tractor or trailer’s volume and a motion detector to register all movements in the trailer’s interior. For refrigerated goods, a temperature sensor also reports when the set temperature goes out of range, indicating a potential unauthorized opening of the trailer door. The Car-Tec GPS Plus includes a loud siren alarm and notifications are sent via phone call and text message to the driver and up to two other individuals. In the case of a trailer and/or tractor theft attempt, a gyroscope sensor registers the truck’s change in position. Installation is easy. No additional cabling for power supply is necessary, and the integrated battery secures the function of the device up to 14 days. The system is armed using a wireless remote control. The alarm module can be disarmed while driving with the system working as a full GPS tracker with entire route recording.

The system comes standard with four sensors that install along the rear bumper or body of the vehicle.

The CVPS19 integrates with any Voyager observation system, and the sensor module can connect to Voyager monitors and Jensen touchscreen stereos with a camera input. The module provides a clear, easy-to-read overlay displayed on the monitor screen to give the driver visual cues when the vehicle gets too close to other objects. In addition to visual alerts, the CVPS19 also provides audible alerts through the monitor speakers. Visit ASAElectronics.com or call 877-305-0445 for more information and to order.
Pipe Break is an aerosol spray compound designed to penetrate between two pieces of rusted metal and help remove a fastener without breaking it or having to cut it off. Because of low surface tension, it is able to creep under moisture, rust and corrosion to free frozen joints, nuts, bolts and other fasteners almost instantly. It also features an anti-corrosion additive that forms an invisible bond on the surface, helping to prevent future rust. Spray the oil liberally on rusted parts and tap to help speed penetration. Pipe Break is sold in 9-ounce aerosol cans. For more information and to order, visit PipeBreakUSA.com or call 844-4PIPEBREAK (844-474-7327).
