Modern vans are increasingly equipped with a complex array of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) designed to improve safety and comfort of the user.
Until now, this has complicated installation of vital accessories including rear access steps where the vehicle is already equipped with original equipment reverse parking sensors.
Rhino Products can now offer a fully integrated solution to this requirement… it’s called Rhino Connect+
What is Connect+?
Rhino Connect+ allows your vehicle’s original equipment reversing sensors to be seamlessly integrated directly into your Rhino Products step. Currently available for our SafeStep™ products.
Connect+ is a highly innovative solution which is compatible with many of Europe’s top commercial vehicles.
Making alterations to introduce an external step with parking detection technology has previously been a time-consuming process, often requiring specialist knowledge, complicated rewiring and of course, added expenditure. Connect+ neatly solves this problem by integrating each OEM sensor into the step via a simple ‘plug and play’ cable.
– Seamless “plug & play” connection – full integration to vehicle electronics
– Fast, simple installation fitting process – considerable time savings
– No additional rewiring costs – cost effective solution
– Revolutionary design – a truly innovative system from Rhino
Rhino Connect+ is delivered to you as a complete kit for successful installation:
-The Rhino Products step modified with special adapters
-Plug and play cabling and connectors
-4 x panel blanking plugs
Installation is quick, simple and effective. Typical installation time is 15 minutes from start to finish.
How does Connect+ work?
1 – Dismount the OEM sensors from the vehicle.
2 – Click them into place via special adapters and using rear spacers located in the step.
3 – “Plug & play” – reconnect the sensors, with the male plug going into the sensor…
…and the female plug connecting to vehicle’s wiring harness.
4 – Fix blanking plugs to cover the space where each sensor was originally located.
