Timing Setup - Priorities

The BIG Rocks Theory

  • Strict Minimum:
    • Primary and Secondary Systems (A and B) (Isolated):
      • Homologated Timers
      • Homologated Start Gates
      • Homologated Photocells
      • Start-Finish Wire
      • Hand Timing
  • All the rest:
    • Display Board
    • Intermediate Times
    • Speed Trap

frequent errors
Frequent errors

The timer forgets to sync the timers before the men’s run (ex: 2nd run of the morning, after the women).

The Net Times are printed with more than 2 decimals (or less)(ex: 52.4379) (rounding or truncating ?)

A and B systems are connected on the same wire (1 pair - Jumpered).

Synching the B system from the A system instead of from the Start Gate together.
