The purpose of the N-SPEX System is to document the condition of every vehicle that enters and leaves your facility. Busy Tunnels that have the N-SPEX system have reported that the system has paid for itself in less than 6 months. In fact, one Operator says that 2 claims in the same month that were avoided with solid evidence from the N-SPEX system, more than paid for the entire N- SPEX equipment costs.
Vehicle Condition Documentation System
Made for ALL Tunnels and Automatics!
vehicle condition documentation system Entry and Exit Arches and Tunnel cameras document the
condition of every vehicle that enters and exits your car wash as well as monitoring the wash process. It’s easy for
customers to blame your Car Wash for damage, but most of the time
the damage is either pre-existing, (but not discovered until an
after-wash inspection), or the damage occurred after the vehicle
left your facility.
Without proof of when the damage was present, you can ultimately be held liable for almost any claim presented.
need the very
best tools to avoid baseless
claims and stay profitable.
The N-SPEX Vehicle Condition Documentation System gives you the High Resolution tools you need to avoid most damage claims, and can save you thousands of dollars per year.
Pre-Focused and Pre-Mounted
N-SPEX Cameras at the Tunnel entrance and exit are so small as to go unnoticed, yet are rugged and completely vandal-proof. Sealed, watertight housings are weatherproof and high-pressure wash-down resistant (NEMA IP-66 rated).
These High-Resolution cameras are made from rugged metal and feature a ¼” thick Lexan viewing dome with adjustable camera angle depending on how far away from the entrance you wish to start seeing the vehicle.
These High-Resolution cameras are pre-adjusted and pre-focused to provide the perfect solution to the viewing angles and distances you need to adequately document the condition of vehicles entering and leaving your facility. This makes installation a snap!
(We can recommend installers for most areas of the United States)
Inside the tunnel, we use vandal-proof Bay Cameras that are even more water-resistant than the outside cameras. After all, they have to endure mist, overspray and constant high humidity.
Tunnel Cams are completely water proof and resistant to condensation
and fogging. In addition, our exclusive dome coating is applied
to resist etching by common car wash chemicals such as high
and low PH pre-soaks. The Tunnel Cams come complete with wall
mount brackets and extra conduit bases included in case you
need to run conduit to them instead of going through the wall
at the mounting point.
Most Tunnels will use two Tunnel Cams, but more may be needed
according to how long your tunnel is and how your equipment
is laid out.
WIRING INSTRUCTIONS -
THE STIX ARE ONE OF THE ONLY PRODUCTS THAT WE HAVE PREWIRED FOR EACH CUSTOMER IN SERIES FOR THE POWER CONNECTION.
EACH LEG OF THE STIX WILL REQUIRE 3
PIECES OF RG59U COAX (ONE FOR EACH CAMERA) AND ONE PIECE OF
18/2 POWER WIRE.
Since the purpose of the N-SPEX System is to document the condition of every vehicle that enters and leaves your facility, Tunnel Operators use this evidence differently than they do for their surveillance cameras. Typically the N-SPEX Video footage will not be reviewed unless there is a claim, whereas the surveillance cameras are used constantly to monitor processes, traffic and people on your entire property.
For this reason, we recommend our
DVR be used with these cameras. This also allows the vehicle
data to be stored longer since the archive space does not include
footage from your regular surveillance cameras.

Some operators report that they see a lot of the same type of
claims over and over again.
Here are a couple of examples:
A Full Service Tunnel in California reports that for the first time they have evidence refuting claims that their equipment scratched or dented a customers’ vehicle. They knew that the damage was probably pre-existing, but without detailed vehicle condition documentation showing the dent as the car entered, or showing that the vehicle didn’t have damage when it left the tunnel, it was impossible to convince a customer that they were not to blame. The Operator says that after viewing the evidence, customers were no longer “100% sure that your wash damaged my car”.
Express Tunnel in Georgia has experienced a spike in collisions
in the tunnel during the past year. N-Spex Video has shown in most
of the cases that the driver applied the brakes for some reason.
Brake lights in the tunnel are seen time after time. The Operator
reports that in a lot of those claims, the driver is plainly seen
talking on their cell phone as they entered the tunnel. Most of
the drivers simply weren’t aware that they applied the brakes, but
viewing the evidence convinced them.
"The cameras are great, had to use the
stix yesterday, customer claimed we broke something on his car.
Guess what! Stix showed it was already broke, before entering the
- D. Walker - Expressway Car Wash (KY)
system has turned out to be our best tool for avoiding claims, as
well as unraveling what really happened in the tunnel. We have found
that the evidence rarely matches what the customer claimed.”
-D. Bell – Texas Express Wash Owner
"My installer had doubts that the
cameras would do what you guys said they would do. He put them up
and they show exactly what you said they would on the vehicles driving
past. Even my installer is impressed."
