Chronos - Timing Unit (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

CHRONOS is an all-in-one timing unit for various sports such as track cycling, ski and athletics.

Built around a dedicated hardware, it performs all the time-critical functions. The data is processed by an internal computer running under Windows CE®.

This high quality product has been developed using advanced technology and is made of the highest quality materials.
An antiglare color LCD (backlit, 640 x 480 pixels) provides enhanced contrast, even under direct sunlight conditions.
31 function keys located around the screen can be configured according to the specific needs of each sport software. A removable insert is used to quickly identify the lower 14 keys. The keyboard is completed by 11 predefined keys and a numeric pad. A standard PS2 keyboard can also be connected to the CHRONOS.
The fast built-in printer provides live printouts. Ink cartridges are unnecessary due to the use of thermal paper. The paper roll can be quickly changed.
