Parking radar (also known as parking sensors, rear parking sensor) – a system which helps to park the car. How does it work? The most common option – it is 4re sensor in the rear bumper. You turn back the transfer and automatically parktronik. When driving, he informs on how far away the obstacle with which it is part, on some models, parking radar, you can even see the approximate shape obstacles. So – what it represents Parktronic? Parking radar – the system of the indicator, the control unit and parking sensors.
The most frequent ultrasound sensors, which are drilled under the bumper. Some time ago in the sale there were electromagnetic parking radar (so-called tape) – they represent a small control unit, a display (or speaker) and electro-magnetic tape that is glued inside bumper and does not require drilling the bumper. But, for some reason such parktronics not put on the plants, so I think it is better to opt for conventional ultrasonic parking sensors. Especially since ultrasound is parktronikov display that shows the distance in meters (from just the sound or electromagnetic scale). Basically parktronics show the distance from 2,5-1,5 m up to 30 cm (there is one Russian Parktronic, which shows up to 15 cm, but rarely occurs). Usually these numbers is quite enough, as time is 30 cm in case the machine is slightly rolled back. Large selection of displays – can be put on the dashboard, above the rear glass, rear glass, is overlay mirror. There are wireless displays, but to put them really is not easier but rather more complicated, because stretch the wire through the cabin easier than dismantling of the dashboard in search of a separate power supply for this display.
By number Sensors – parktronics are at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 sensors. All that is up to 4 inclusive – are put on a bumper (eg front). 6 and 8 – on the front and rear bumper. The sensors are most often black or silver, some manufacturers Sensors are all primary colors. Also, sensors can be painted in any service station where there is a paint shop or on your own by buying a can of paint-like colors (cheaper) or upload it to your color cartridge (expensive). After painting sensors work as well as to painting. Complexity of installing parking sensors strongly depends on the machine – more on that at her bumper. On the cost machine usually was empty, so it's much easier than with business-class machines. They generally under the bumper metal beams and lots of foam. On such machines have to remove the bumper and cut holes in the foam under the sensor. The set of all parktronikov always includes milling the required size and instructions are always given the optimal location of sensors. Thus – the installation of sensors include: layout and drilling of the bumper. The wiring inside the bumper and dragging them to the salon. Disassembling the rear of the cabin, searching for food lights reverse (this bulb to reverse and connected parktronics in the rear bumper). Setting the display, dragging the wire in the trunk. Assembly salon. Front parking sensors, in most cases connected to the brake pedal – ie you hit the brakes and it is enabled. He usually turns off after 5-10 seconds after you release the bulldog brakes. Very convenient to connect to single button – that is, needed – included. In short, true) If you have questions – ask in comments.
