Moisture and heat are blown out of the system through the ventilation grille. This enables operation in extreme conditions and conserves the electronic components.

The bumpers made of durable rubber protect against impacts, ensure a stable stand and make the systems stackable. They can be removed; however we recommend leaving them on.

The batteries can be hot swapped during timing. The transparent battery cover makes it possible to read the charging status at any time. The batteries can be charged internally.

The broom ensures that no water gets to the connectors from the outside, even when all cables are connected.

The handle makes it easy to carry the system over long distances. With two batteries inserted, Ubidium weighs only 4.1 kg.

The 6.2″ display features an adjustable backlight with customizable background color. Thanks to its high contrast, it remains legible even in the brightest sunlight. It is covered with an extremely robust glass.

With the help of the clearly visible status LED, you can quickly see whether the system is running properly (green) or whether it requires operation (red).

All buttons have a pleasant pressure point and are easy to use even with gloves. Like the entire surface, they are waterproof.

The active timing antenna is used to receive data from Active Transponders and Loop Boxes. Please put it upright during your event.

Active loop plug: Connect the banana plugs of your loop cable into the device and directly start timing with active transponders. No additional device needed!

Expansion port to plug in the Y-Bridge Cable of the Foldable Ground Antenna. The cable serves for both, power supply of the antenna and data transmission.

A port cover made from durable rubber material protects the rear connectors from moisture, dust and impacts.

What is the current delivery time for Ubidium?

Production is gradually being ramped up, and we have already received many orders. You can order Ubidium through our shop, but we cannot currently provide an exact delivery time.
Payment is due shortly before shipping.
If you order more than one Ubidium, we will dispatch only the first device initially, with the remainder to follow at a later date. We will cover any additional shipping costs resulting from this.

When will the new Foldable Ground Antenna be available?

During 2024, more details to follow in due course.

What does  “Ubidium“ mean?

"Ubidium" is a truly unique and carefully chosen product name, drawing inspiration from the chemical element "Rubidium." Within the realm of atomic clocks, Rubidium plays a crucial role in achieving high precision. The Latin root, "rubidus" translates as "deep red" and seamlessly resonates with the brand identity of RACE RESULT.

How long will the Decoder 5000s & the old Foldable Ground Antenna still be available?

We expect it to phase out by the end of the year, but in general we can build it as long as we have the components to build them.

Can I rent Ubidium?

You will be able to rent an Ubidium for active Usage from 2024. Depending on the release date of the new foldable Ground Antenna we will decide when we start renting the Passive solution of Ubidium.

Can I order a test system?

We have a few systems for tests. If you wish to receive a test system, please reach out to us to discuss details.

Can I use my existing ground and side antenna with Ubidium?

As of now, it is not possible. But we are looking into a solution to use your side antennas in the long run.

Can I buy passive mats shorter than 4.6 meters?

Yes, we will offer the mats in pairs of two, initially planned as extension. However, you will need to buy the Y-Adaptor separately. When buying a 4.6 meter antenna, the Y-Adaptor will be included already.

Does the new system read HuTags / old transponders?


Can I use my current equipment with Ubidium?

It depends on the equipment:
- Loop Boxes will still repeat to Ubidium
- Active Extensions can be connected to Ubidium in the long run - but with a different cable and not earlier than 2025.
- The Ground Antenna will not be compatible.
- High Gain Antenna / Side antennas are not supported right now, but we are looking for a solution.

What material is the new ground antenna made of?

The same material as the current ground antenna.

Can we still cross with cars/trucks over the ground antenna?


Will we continue with new firmware updates on the 5000s?

We won't release firmware updates for the 5000S, unless they are critical and fix severe bugs.

Can I take Ubidium on an airplane?

Yes, according to IATA rules batteries with a maximum of 100Wh are allowed for hand luggage. With a capacity of 96Wh the batteries used in Ubidium comply with that precondition.

Ubidium is $ 3,490 plus VAT / tax and shipping.

Scope of delivery:
  • 1 Ubidium
  • 1 Battery 94 Wh
  • 13 m loop cable
  • AC power cable

Please note that we cannot currently provide an exact delivery time for your Ubidium order.

Payment is due shortly before shipping.

If you order more than one Ubidium, we will dispatch only the first device initially, with the remainder to follow at a later date. We will cover any additional shipping costs resulting from this.

* depending on regulatory region

Revolutionary Ground Antenna Concept

The new foldable ground antenna connects with a single plug - and you’re ready to go. Each antenna element now contains its own UHF element, enabling antenna lengths of 23 m with one single system and 6 hours battery runtime.

Unparalleled Connectivity

Ubidium has GPS and 4G on-board. 3 Ethernet ports provide extended networking capabilities, internal switching to connect multiple devices. You can even power them over POE using the internal Ubidium battery.Internal and external SIMs allow for data transmission backup and, if necessary, remote support access to the device. Ubidium can connect directly to your PC via USB-C. It also offers Wi-Fi, USB-A, DC Power In, trigger input/output and the connection of an external 4G antenna.

Resistant in All Conditions

Ubidium ensures optimal performance in all weather conditions. A heating element keeps the device above freezing point, ensuring optimal battery performance. An integrated fan will cool the system down if necessary and blows moisture out if the integrated humidity sensor indicates a condensing risk.
The front lid covers the connectors and effectively protects the system from rain and splashing water.

Exceptional LCD Display

We have paid particular attention to the readability and usability of the display. The 6.2’ screen in combination with the always visible LEDs and large buttons, makes it easy to maintain an overview of all relevant timing data and functions. The display is even readable in extreme temperatures.

Stacked Operation & Charging

With all ports accessible from the front, multiple systems can be stacked and charged at the same time. The LCD on the battery shows the charging level at any time.

Ubidium Foldable Ground Antenna

The new foldable ground antenna delivers unprecedented flexibility and the highest detection rates.
Each element contains a specially developed RACE RESULT UHF reader. The mat connects directly to Ubidium. It can be adjusted in length as desired, up to 23 meters per system (30 segments)!

Available from 2024.


Plug and Go

The mat connects directly to Ubidium with a single connector, no additional device required. For reliability, two independent, robust cables lead to the first antenna segment and form two separate strings throughout the whole mat.

Improved Shaping, Less Weight

The new design gives the mat an even better profile on the road and flatter edges allow for a more comfortable ride. At 77 cm, the segments are longer than before, in the standard 4.6 meter configuration (6 segments), the mat weight is just 21 kg, 20% less than our previous ground antenna.

Up to 23 m Mat Length

As you are not limited by the 8 ports of conventional UHF readers you can now create up to 23 m long timing mats.Each mat segment contains its own integrated reader and antenna, specifically designed by RACE RESULT for sports timing purposes.It requires less power than standard UHF readers, therefore increasing system battery life. It also allows synchronized reading with multiple elements at the same time, significantly increasing read rates and timing precision.

Interleaving Connection

Every reader element is connected to the reader 2 mats earlier, creating two separate data lines in an A-B-A-B scheme. A defective element does not block later segments from functioning, and even if one complete strand should fail, timing remains functional.

Easy Length Adaption

You only need to open one antenna segment on either side of the joint to split the mat. The cables for each segment can stay inside the mat at any time using the inner storage channel. The mat can be extended/shortened by pairs of two segments, resulting in widths between 1.5 m (2 segments) and 23 m (30 segments).
