The Verity tractor-trailer camera systems are much more than simply pairing a coil-cable to an existing camera system (which never had good results). Verity has addressed power management and has cameras designed for a range of applications from trailers carrying dry goods, to low boys, to refrigerated trucks. We have camera covers designed to protect cameras when they are backed into dock door seals. We also protect the dock door seals. Verity coil cables have been modified to meet SAE standard J2222.
Verity has an advantage in the semi-truck camera industry because we have crawled under the trucks, run the cables, and know first-hand the differences between wiring a day cab to a sleeper cab. Verity uses the Mid-West Food Bank box trucks and semi-trucks from time to time to test products and experience installations first-hand.
Verity continues to support the split-frame industry by always working on the smart trailer initiative. We also follow the advances made in Europe and adopt the good ideas they have into our products.
Sometimes changing to the latest
and the greatest technology, may not be such a good idea.
We have seen an increase in sales dealing with fleets left abandoned by companies pushing the latest in High Definition (1080p) systems. Split frames trucks have a lot of trailers with older cameras, loggers, navigation systems, and truck head units (Built-in screens) that will only work with the CBVS/analog that has been the industry standard for decades. Verity has improved our systems to work well in these older formats.

Although most information here shows the C300P as a low mounted camera, it is also extremely well suited to be a high mounted camera.

Choose our SMW7J - a standard "J" system but with a C300P camera instead that can be mounted low as well as high.

Why a C300P or the C305 low-mount camera on refrigerated trailers?
Although most information here shows the C300P/C305 as a low-mounted camera, it is also extremely well suited to be a high-mounted camera.
There are many reasons that we have accumulated over the years for using low mounted cameras. I will make the list a brief as possible.
First and foremost is that with swing doors there is often little to no room above the doors to mount a camera.
Refrigeration warehouse dock curtains often tend to misalign cameras over time. The cameras also cause mirror rips in the curtains causing loss of cooling at the warehouse and cost of repairs.
No need to break the seal on a refrigerated trailer to pull cables
Headers are most often hardened steel requiring heavy-duty drills, many drill bits (even the good ones) adding hours to install. The cables run on the bottom of the trailer; it makes sense to keep the camera there.
Often refrigerated day cabs are delivering to store locations, some without loading docks. A low mounted C300P allows for 3 times the viewing area and is extremely helpful when performing jack-knife turns.
There are multiple low camera locations available. Our years of experience and installer & driver feedback makes a low mount the best choice on refrigerated trailers.
