The decoder receives the signals from the transponders, calculates the exact finish time and provides the data to the
scoring software like race|result 11 in real time. The system runs independently from your computer and from power supply.
Besides it offers the follow features: internal battery which lasts 8 hours, GPS receiver for time synchronization,
2 Ethernet ports with internal switch, detection indication via LED and/or beeper, connector for external battery/cigarette
lighter of your car, integrated 3G modem for automatic upload, feature port to connect accessories like light barrier,
USB connector to save the data on a USB stick.
