Yes, the sensor will operate from 9 to 33 volts
Think of a cone shaped light beam coming out of the sensor, much like a flashlight. If the “light” is shining on an object or part of the vehicle, then the sensor will likely pick it up. Refer to installation guide for further instructions on proper mounting position and angle (click here for installation guide download). Refer to horizontal and vertical detection patterns for the sensor (click here for detection pattern downloads). Note that the detection pattern is not flat, it may pick up objects that are located at some angle above or below the
Although the sensor will generally function well with some accumulation of dirt/snow/etc. , excessive build-up may cause the sensor to report a detection.
The ability of the sensor to detect an object depends largely on the position, size, shape, and composition of the object. A large, metal vehicle is much more likely to be detected than a small rock on the ground.
Think of a cone shaped light beam coming out of the sensor, much like a flashlight. If the “light” isn’t shining on the object, then the sensor cannot see the object either. Refer to installation guide for further instructions on proper mounting position and angle (click here for installation guide download). Refer to horizontal and vertical detection patterns for the sensor (click here for detection pattern downloads).
The sensor is designed to detect objects within a certain range from the face of the sensor. If the object is outside this range then it will not detect the object.
Although the sensor will generally function well with some accumulation of dirt/snow/etc. , excessive build-up may decrease the ability of the sensor to detect objects.
It cannot be turned off, as it would take the active warning away from the safety system. However, it can be turned down. There are three volume levels, selectable by pushing the button on the front of the display.
It’s not actually an LED; it’s a light sensor used to dim/brighten the LEDs for better viewing in all ambient light conditions.
Each of the PreView sensors will have different detection patterns and ranges. Click here to browse the detection patterns to find which sensor has the detection pattern the best suits your specific needs. In some cases, it may be necessary to use more than one sensor to cover the desired area.

No, the sensors should only be powered from a well regulated 9 – 33V DC power supply or battery.
Normally, the display’s power LED is green to indicate that the display and sensor are functioning properly. If the display’s power LED turns red then there is either a problem with one of the sensors, the cable, or the display. The display will flash an error code that indicates the type of error. Refer to your particular systems user’s manual for details on how to further diagnose the problem using the error codes.
It’s not even close. There is no other system proximity ranging on the market today that works as well as PreView in the heavy duty industry.
