CH-HPC1BD Black Caravan Camera

Black Caravan Camera


The CH-HPC1BD black caravan camera is part of our range of premium hybrid cameras  which combine standard definition video and AHD video and can be programmed to suit the application as required making these the choice of professionals as a single camera can be used in many different applications.

This is a dome style caravan camera which mounts flat on the rear of a caravan or motorhome  with the cable going through the outer wall behind the camera so there needs to be a cable connection in the area behind the camera.

Hybrid cameras combine traditional composite video (CVBS) with Analogue High Definition video (AHD) with the ability to change between these two modes by menu programming.
Not only can the camera be changed between video output modes but can also be changed between PAL and NTSC formats to suit the requirements of each individual installation.

Hybrid Series cameras are unique to Chipatronic and feature the ability to program the camera to suit most applications making them ideally suited to trade customers wanting cameras that can be used in multiple situations, reducing inventory and the need to order special cameras.


  • Programmable video output mode: CVBS or AHD
  • Programmable video format: PAL or NTSC
  • 720P camera resolution in AHD mode (1280 x 720P equivalent to 1200TVL)
  • 700TVL CVBS resolution
  • Custom camera programming is possible including Mirror to Real image change
  • Standard Chipatronic 4 Pin cabling solutions are able to be used

The CH-HPC1BD black caravan camera is the same as the CH-HPC1WD white caravan camera and both of these cameras are available in a standard, wide angle lens version and a narrow angle lens version which is used for constant rear view and provides a better view of the road and the traffic as this will generally be further behind.

This version is suitable for general purpose and reversing.

The narrow lens version is designed for constant viewing where a clearer view of the road and traffic behind is desired.

For the best images the cameras should be used in the default AHD mode with 720P HD video and will need to be used with a suitable monitor as AHD video is not able to be used on most common displays which are limited to standard definition CVBS video.

Popular monitors for use with caravan cameras are the CH-RVMAHD72 clip-on monitor which fits over the existing rear view mirror and the CH-RVM88 mirror replacement which is available to suit many common 4WD vehicles commonly used to tow caravans.

Standard cabling is used with this camera range and for the best results we recommend  the heavy duty caravan connection system with removable curly cable as this has large, metal plugs which are easy to handle and the car – van connection is re3moved when not in use to leave closed sockets.

The camera comprises the main housing which mounts onto the body and then the camera section is held in place by screws. By loosening the screws the camera can be moved up and down inside the housing to align the view required.
