The Work Area Vision System (WAVS) is a closed circuit television system that is designed to supplement the view for the operator during machine operation. The system may include one, two, or three cameras, depending on the type of machine and the application.
Display (1) for WAVS
Camera (2) for WAVS
Prior to operating the machine, ensure proper orientation of images by the camera or cameras. The cameras have been set up by the factory or by a Cat dealer to provide views which comply with the documented guidelines. Consult your Cat dealer before any adjustments are made to the cameras.
Note: Rear facing cameras should always be set to the mirror image configuration.
Prior to operating the machine, ensure that the features of the display are properly adjusted. Ensure that the brightness and the contrast are adjusted prior to operating the machine. Ensure that the brightness and the contrast are adjusted after changes in the conditions for ambient light.
Prior to operating the machine, ensure that the display is positioned in order to provide clear visibility of the display from the operator seat. Do not position the display in a way that will cause the following conditions:
- Cover any safety messages or other important information.
- Impede the entry to the cab or impede the exit from the cab.
- Obstruct the visibility of the operator.
- Obstruct the view of any indicators, gauges, or monitoring system.
- Impair access to any operator controls or impair movement of any operator controls.
Prior to operating the machine, ensure that the camera lens and the display are clean.
