Front & Rear Sensors - Front Audio Alerts with Rear Audio Alerts - Description


What You Get

This kit gives you a Pro-Fit solution for complete protection when manoeuvring both forwards and backwards in your vehicle. The 4 rear sensors activate when you select reverse gear and the front sensors are manually controlled by a dash mounted switch (there is an upgrade option should you wish the front sensors to be automatically activated - see below). You will get audible alerts that increase with frequency as your car nears an obstacle.

Kit Contents

  • 8 Recess Bumper Fit Sensors
  • 8 Sensor Wedges (use is optional)
  • 2 Control Units
  • 2 Buzzer Units
  • 2 Cutting Tools FREE!
  • Fitting Accessories
  • Instruction Manual


How It Works

The systems work by radiating ultrasonic beams outwards from the vehicle. The beams are reflected by obstructions in front of and behind the vehicle depending on the direction of travel. The ultrasonic beams re-enter the sensors and information about the beams travel time is processed to calculate the distance of the obstruction.

The Dolphin rear unit is activated when reverse gear is engaged. As the vehicle is reversed. When the vehicle is less than 1.5 metres from the obstruction the audible alert will emit intermittent bleeps. As the vehicle gets closer to the obstruction the frequency of the bleeps increases. At 30 centimetres from the obstruction the bleeps become a continuous solid tone.

The front sensors come with an illuminated rocker switch to manually control the front sensors which can be mounted somewhere appropriate on your dashboard. You may want to visit the parts department of your local car dealer and get a switch that matches the others on your dashboard for a more original part "look". Illuminating Switch 

For modern vehicles with CANbus electrics, instead of having the manual switching option. You can buy an Interface Module to pick up a speed reading from your cars engine management system which will switch the front sensors on when your speed drops to around 6mph or less. This CANbus Interface cost £49.99 and is compatible with these CANBUS cars.

The front sensors have extra long leads that will enable easy fitting around the engine bay.  The great thing about this set is because the 2 kits (front and rear) work independently from each other you do not have to trail cables all the way through the car.

Optional Wedges 
This system comes with optional angled wedges, giving greater flexibility according to the shape of your bumper. 

Swap Socket Swap Socket Connectors
The Swap Socket connectors are watertight screw connectors 6 inches from the sensor head making initial installation easier and the replacement of sensor head should your bumper be damaged due to someone else poor driving or the unlikely event of a fault developing. This saves the cost and hassle of having to remove the bumper in order to facilitate replacement.

good job done in record time - 17th April 2011 - Alasdair - 27/03/2014
Had your front/rear micro sensors fitted by Denis on Saturday and would like to thank him/you for a good job done in record time. Given that I only contacted you on Thursday to have the good fitted by lunchtime Saturday must be something of a record. Having a Mitsubishi outlander, where part of the rear opening folds downwards to give a loading platform I was a bit confused as to how this could be overcome. Happily Denis was not and did a great job. Thanks again
