The decoder is the heart of the RACE RESULT timing systems. It receives the signals from the transponders, calculates the exact finish time and provides the data to the scoring software like RACE RESULT 12 in real time. The system runs independently from your computer and from power supply. The integrated 4G module allows worldwide mobile network connetion.

Your decoder can automatically connect to GPS after booting and get the precise GPS time. This ensures highest precision, especially when using several timing points.
The display has an integrated backlight and is easy to read in both, at night and in direct sunlight.
Connect your system with the RACE RESULT 11 software, update the firmware and adjust settings from your browser. Includes an internal switch.
External LTE Antenna Connector
You can use an external LTE Antenna (sold separately) to improve the connectivity in areas with poor cellular coverage. The Decoder LED indicates an active mobile connection.
The decoder has an internal lead acid battery of 15Ah capacity which will last about 8 hours with the passive antenna or 24 hours with the active loop. It can be charged while running.
Turn your decoder on and off, navigate through the decoder menue and start timing. LEDs indicate when timing mode is active, the battery is charged and external power is available.
Connect a USB stick to copy all detection files. This is a handy option when your decoder cannot be moved or accessed through the internet. Newer decoders also support WiFi dongle connection.
Blinks and gives an acoustic signal on each detection. You can also connect external speakers or headphones with 3.5mm jack. The internal beeper will then be turned off.
To keep your decoder dry in rainy weather, you should close the lid and lead cables out here. Leave the lid slightly open in hot and dry weather.
Plug in your Active Extension to run the decoder in active timing mode. You can also connect other devices like start markers or light barriers.
12V Battery Connector
Connect a larger battery or a car (via the cigarette lighter) for longer times without another power supply. Use the 12V Battery Booster (sold separately) to first fully discharge external sources, before internal battery is used.
4G Module/ SIM Card Slot
Insert your own SIM card to connect the Decoder to a mobile network of your choice. The integrated 4G module then pushes all detections to the online storage. This is the easiest way to get live data from remote split points.
110-240V AC, 50/60Hz. The decoder comes with a power cable matching your country's sockets.
The integrated 8-port "Zebra FX9600 RFID Reader" was customized for RACE RESULT to fit the special needs of a timing system. It unfolds all its power in combination with our foldable ground antenna and RACE RESULT passive transponders.
The Decoder can be opened to upgrade the hardware, replace the battery or repair components. Always closely follow our instructions if you open the decoder and note that you will lose any further warranty.
