The Dolphin front fitting parking sensor kit is a 4 recess mounting sensor high quality system that will cover the widest of cars giving a professional finish. This front parking sensor kit comes with longer 6m cables on the sensors enabling you to wire around the engine bay and under the dashboard where the brain box can be installed securely in a whether-proof environment. Included with the 4 recess sensors is a buzzer which gives audible bleeps with increasing frequency as you get closer to an obstacle which can also be mounted under the dashboard.
How it works
The system works by radiating ultrasonic beams covering the area infront of the vehicle. The beams are reflected by obstructions ahead, and re-enter the sensors. The reflected beam information is processed to calculate the distance of the obstruction.
With the Dolphin Front Parking Sensors you need to power them via a small toggle switch on the dashboard which is included with the kit. Then you manually turn the sensors on, as and when you need to use them (or see CANBUS option below). 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.
if you wear a hearing aid we would recommend that you consider the DPS450F kit which also has a display, as opposed to this stand alone audio in case the the audible pitch of the alert is incompatible with your hearing aid.
Optionally if you have a modern CANBUS wired car you may use a CANBUS interface that will take a speed reading for the cars engine management system and automatically bring the sensors on whenever your speed is below approximately 6mph. This would give you a very professional finish, cost of the CANBUS interface is £49.99 and comes with instructions. Please check for your Vehicle Compatibility.
Swap Socket Feature
All of our kits now come with the new watertight swap socket feature based 6 inches from the sensor heads, it makes installation quicker and easier. Also should you ever have a problems with faulty sensors or accident damage in the future it facilitates easy replacement without having to remove the bumper again and rewire from scratch.
This system comes with optional angled wedges, giving greater flexibility according to the shape of your bumper.
