A rapidly growing number of elite events around the world has trust in the RACE RESULT Active System. It combines high precision and reliability with unique features like
tracking and store mode.
The unmatched combination of Decoder and Active Extension ensures a detection rate of 100 %. A simple wire loop is used to detect transponders. It can be taped to the finish line or buried in the ground.
Thousands of events around the world rely on RACE RESULT active transponders as a guarantee for maximum precision and reliability under all conditions.
V3 is the third transponder generation and takes the product to the next level with significantly lower power consumption, greater resistance to interferences and significantly increased accuracy.
The four V3 transponder options are tuned to different application scenarios. Different transponders can be used in the same race.
The budget choice. For clubs and events that appreciate the reliability of active technology and can do without the highest accuracy, tracking and store mode.
The best choice for most events. Combines high accuracy and speed with long battery life, store mode and tracking.
High-end transponders for pro races. Delivers the highest accuracy, most stable data transmission in sprint finishes, additional tracking data and store mode.
Special transponder for timing go-karts, optimized for avoiding electrical interferences at detection heights < 0.5 m. Ensures highest reliability and precision over tens of thousands of rounds of kart racing.
No hidden costs
Once you purchase the transponder, it's yours! There are no follow-up costs such as activation or subscription fees, renewal costs, expiration dates etc.
Our active transponders already were among the most accurate timing solutions on the market. With the V3 transponder, we were able to implement an even further improved timing algorithm. The result is a significantly improved accuracy - according to measurements,the best in this transponder class.
Improved power consumption
Utilizing the latest semiconductor technology, V3 has a significantly reduced power consumption compared to any existing transponders. This allows for new functionalities, exceptionally long activation duration, more store mode and tracking mode usage.
With "Store Mode" and "Tracking Mode" the application scenarios of the RACE RESULT Active transponder* can be expanded. No other timing transponder on the market offers these functions. V3 consumes significantly less battery in tracking mode, so the feature can be used even more frequently.
Works in any orientation
No matter what position the transponder is in when crossing the timing line, thanks to the 3D activation antenna, the times are always precisely recorded and transmitted. (The ActiveBasic V3 has a 2D antenna, so it must be mounted vertically.)
High performance in low temperatures
V3 delivers reliable timing data even at low temperatures and low battery levels. Compared to its predecessor, the V3 has been greatly improved in this regard. Active transponder can be used from -25° C to +70° C.
Extra transponder code
Store your own data on the transponder. An individually programmable and changeable code (0...30000 / A-000...Z-999) is transmitted with each passing. In addition, each transponder has a key-value-store that you can assign as you wish (e.g. “Owner” : “MyTimingCompany” ). This code can be changed and read out via the Management Box.
Ergonomic and robust
All active transponders are 100% waterproof. With a weight of only 16.8 g and a size of 36 x 40 x 9 mm, they are comfortable to wear and easy to attach. Smooth edges increase comfort for athletes.

Using the Active Extension, your RACE RESULT Decoder supports the Active Transponders. Only a wire loop is needed as the antenna. It can be fixed on the ground using duct tape or attached to a mat. On race tracks, it can be installed in the channels designed for timing loops.
The stand-alone Loop Box is a revolutionary new way to collect split times. At nearby split timing points detections are repeated wirelessly to the main system. In case of remote timing points, the ActivePro Transponder saves the passing time and then transmits them when arriving at the finish.
The USB timing box is the handy alternative to the Active System. It is connected directly to the PC and does not need a Decoder. Thanks to the internal memory battery, 100 % reliable timing can still be maintained if the computer should fail. The USB Timing Box can be combined with loop boxes.
With the Track Box, you can provide tracking and timing with the same transponder. Track Boxes placed along the course or on race vehicles receive pings from all tracking-enabled transponders within a 50 m radius and transmit the data live online. You can then use this data to produce live tracking visualisation, and to publish an unprecedented amount of splits.
The Management Box is a key component of the tracking solution, as it is required to activate and deactivate tracking on the transponders, as well as to manage your Track Boxes.
It also allows you to easily check your inventory of transponders, to generate chip files and to set the transponders to Deep Sleep Mode.
