Starttime V - Electronic Starting Device

The StartTime V is the ideal solution to manage the starting process of most of sport or disciplines, such as swimming, athletics or speed skating. This starting device combines the highest Swiss Timing technologies and
latest safety standards.

The setup of the StartTime V can be modified by a multifunction LCD display. It also features an enhanced
internal amplifier, a keypad to select the various setup possibilities, a high fidelity loudspeaker and an integrated
optical flash.

A line out allows optional loudspeakers to be connected to deliver the start signal as close as possible and
simultaneously to each athlete. A microphone unit enablesthe starter to give the start signal while amplifying all the
verbal commands.

The main function of the StartTime V is to generate a signal to give the start of the race. To perform this mission, the
StartTime V can manage the following peripherals:

E-gun: the electronic starting device used to replace the traditional powder gun to signal the start to the athletes and trig the timing devices. When the starter activates the gun trigger, simultaneously, a sound is played, a flash is emitted and a start pulse is given to the timing devices. By pressing the trigger a second time within a programmable delay, the false start sound will be played.

Timer (Quantum): it receives the pulses generated by different devices to time the race.

High fidelity loudspeaker: a sound is used to simulate the noise of a gun or a whistle.

Flash Start: in certain competitions, a Flash Start System is used like start signal for hearing impared person.
