About the Accele RVC1150T
A camera that looks like it came with your car
A camera that looks like it came with your car
Accele's RVC1150T backup camera can help you back in or out of parking spaces, day or night. This tiny, metal-cased camera mounts "OEM-style" — once you drill a mounting hole and snap it into position, it'll look like it came with your car from the factory. The sensitive 0.2 lux camera picks up clear images, even in low-light conditions. Accele includes the hole saw drill bit, along with a 16-foot RCA video cable that connects to your video screen up front.
Plenty of viewing options
You can mount the RVC1150T in a license plate recess and get a wide-angle view of what's behind your vehicle. You can configure the RVC1150T to show guide lines in the backup display, so you can better judge distances while backing into a parking space. Or, you can mount this versatile camera high on a roof line or tailgate handle pointing straight down, to see what's directly behind your vehicle's rear bumper and wheels, so you won't run over anything. You pick the viewing mode for your application by re-configuring a wire in the camera harness.
Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.
What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)
What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.
How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.
Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

Multi-Purpose Camera: The Accele RVC1150T can be configured as a rear-view or downward-view camera. It provides you with a clear wide-angle view of the rear or tow-hitch of your vehicle. This multi-purpose camera features a IP67 waterproof housing.
Note: Image is always reversed.
Composite Video Connector: The Accele RVC1150T multi-purpose camera features a standard composite video output (RCA plug) which makes it compatible with virtually any mobile video monitor featuring a rear view camera input.
Wide Viewing Angle/Low Lux: The RVC1150T's multi-purpose camera offers a 165° vertical and horizontal viewing angle providing an excellent field of vision behind you in your vehicle. The multi-purpose camera provides minimum illumination of 0.2 lux.
Parking Assistance: The camera features a three-color grid to assist backing into a parking space. The grid features green, yellow, and red lines to help you determine how close you are to an obstacle. The camera does not have a proximity sensor or audible warning system.
Note: The parking assistance lines are turned off by default. To turn on the parking assistance lines, you must cut the Green wire loop within the camera's attached cable. The included instructions state this wire loop is Blue, but it is not - it is Green.
Mounting Options: The RVC1150T's integrated mounting bracket allows you to flush-mount this multi-purpose camera to your vehicle. Once the camera is mounted, it is not adjustable. The camera can be mounted to the underside of your vehicle's rear bumper or other horizontal surface for a rear view. The camera will need to be mounted with the lens facing downward on the rear of your vehicle to keep an eye your tow-hitch. A 23.5mm hole saw is included to drill out a hole for the integrated mounting bracket.
Note: A White wire loop within the camera's attached cable switches the image from "right side up" to "upside down", depending on how you have mounted the camera. If the camera is mounted from underneath, do not cut the white wire loop. If the camera is mounted on top, cut the white wire loop.
Connections: The multi-purpose camera features an attached 6' power/video cable terminated by a proprietary connector. This cable plugs into the included 22' power/video cable which features a composite video connector and power/ground wires on the other end. The composite video connector plugs into your in-dash head unit's composite video-camera input. The power/ground wires need be connected to your vehicle's 12-volt electrical system.
