Timing solution for
Open Triathlons

For mass participation triathlons, the passive system is a cost effective alternative. Athletes wear a disposable triathlon transponder at the ankle. This transponder is waterproof, reusable and offers a accuracy of 0.2 seconds. Still, water affects the detection quality. This needs to be considered during the hardware setup.


The transponder needs to be worn on the ankle - above the swim suit! In our example here, all participants start from the beach. The timing system at the start is used to check who is currently in the water.
For the system on swim exit, make sure to keep away from water. Ideally, athletes need to run a few meters before passing the ground antenna. This helps to dry off the transponder and improve read rates.
Please note you cannot use a 6m- or 8.4m-Extension with disposable triathlon transponders.
br> In RACE RESULT 12 use the "Triathlon" template, which offers you exactly these timing points and all necessary results.



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. Internal battery for 8-10 hours, integrated 4G module, precise GPS time, 2 ethernet ports.
