PreView SentryPRECO Electronics, the global leader in heavy-duty collision mitigation introduced our newest object detection system at the 2016 MINExpo trade show: PreView Sentry.

Heavy-duty industry accidents are costly and can bring an entire operation to a halt. Unfortunately, these accidents are on the rise. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 75% of struck-by fatalities involve heavy equipment. PRECO believes that this is unacceptable, and aims to significantly reduce the incidence and severity of heavy-duty equipment accidents by developing the most reliable safety solutions available to OEMs, upfitters and fleet operations.

PreView Sentry is the world’s most flexible and comprehensive object detection solution on the market today. We have spent the last 17 years developing radar based object detection systems. Sentry represents the next generation of collision mitigation technology. We built Sentry with an eye to the future, anticipating applications such as vehicle automation, sensor fusion and system integrations, including telematics and data logging.

PreView SentrySentry has a fully adjustable detection zone, with the ability to detect objects from the face of the radar up to 30 meters (98 feet), and the width of the detection zone is adjustable to fit almost all vehicle types. Sentry accurately identifies the location and velocity of up to 16 people or objects simultaneously and is designed to withstand the harsh environments encountered by heavy-duty equipment. With built-in fail safe alerts that notify the operator of radar blockage or communication issues, operators and fleet managers can be sure that they are working with the most reliable object detection system available.

Companies around with world have come to rely on PRECO and our collision mitigation systems to provide their operators with technology that enables them to work safely and efficiently. PreView Sentry was developed to reduce heavy-duty equipment accidents with the ultimate goal of saving lives.
