A car cable is required to connect a caravan camera through the tow vehicle to the monitor and must match the caravan camera cable to work correctly.
Chipatronic caravan camera cables use the robust Aopulo type 5 pin metal socket with weatherproof cover and is supplied as a 2 part assembly to allow a range of cable lengths to suit most standard cars and also larger SUVs and commercial style vehicles.
The car cable must be used in conjunction with a spring style “curly cable” that provides a heavy duty flexible connection between the car and caravan or trailer which is removed when not in use to leave the metal cover closed, preventing ingress of dust and water under most conditions and there are no connectors hanging on cables to get damaged or dirty.
This connection has the matching metal plug which is large enough to be easily grasped for insertion and removal making the system very easy to use and very heavy duty.
To mount the connection a metal mounting bracket is used and our brackets are manufactured locally from high quality stainless steel. Please note that the bracket must fit behind the flange and the backshell of the connector may need to be loosened off, please see CH-MB for further details.
The caravan camera cable has a female 4 pin connector to suit standard monitors and can be used with Chipatronic dual cameras with the correct fittings.
The car or towing vehicle must have a matching cable as the caravan camera cable and these have the same 5 pin metal socket as the caravan but the the cable is the reverse so the 4 pin connector suits a monitor.
Standard length for most cars, SUVs, utilities and similar is 7m which is long enough to go from the hitch point at the back of the car through to the dash area where the connection to the monitor will be located.
As the cables sometimes needs to go via a path which is longer than it seems 7.5m is considered to be suitable but for longer vehicles a 10m version is available and longer lengths can also be provided on request, please contact our sales team for further information if this is required.
