DF HyperMat

Our light weight DF timing mat.

Trident HyperMat’s have unique “smarts” built into the mat, giving a consistent RF field to deliver ultimate read rates. Simply plug any mat into any antenna port on your TimeMachine DF or Hybrid, and you are ready to go.

We’ve also made tuning simple. The HyperMat does it for you automatically. They can be laid out in any environment and will auto-tune themselves by filtering out electronic “noise” and setting themselves at the optimum signal to achieve best-read results for the environment.

Our mat bag is designed to make the most physically demanding part of timing an event as painless as possible. Robust handles and zips ensure you’ll get your HyperMat deployed without damaging yourself or your equipment. We’ve purposely made the bag oversized to make packing up easier. The bag also has three separate compartments for storing timing essentials.

  • Robust water resistant PVC coil construction with sewn edges.
  • Non-slip material to minimise movement in heavy traffic.
  • Self-tuning to optimize read rates reducing the chance of missed tag reads.
  • 6m weighs 23.8 kg and 3m at 13.3kg.
  • 1.2m in width.
  • 10m TimeMachine DF connection cable. 

Compatible Readers:
TimeMachine DF and TimeMachine Hybrid.

Compatible Tags:

Start/Finish Split

This configuration is recommended for start and finish lines, the second line of mats acts as a backup. Mat lines need to be 1.2m apart to create the best possible field. Mats connected in parallel must be touching each other as shown in the diagram, do not leave a gap between the mats when using this configuration. Cabling back to the reader must be laid up the center of the mats so that both cables exit the mat nearest to the reader. This diagram shows 2 x 3m HyperMats being used with 2 x 6m HyperMats to create a 9m line, it is possible to use 4 x 3m HyperMats or 4 x 6m HyperMats with a 4 port TimeMachine DF.

Two Splits

This configuration is recommended for a triathlon transition area, it allows for two split timing points from one TimeMachine DF. Mats lines need to be 1.2m apart to create the best possible field. This diagram shows 4 x 3m HyperMats being used, it is possible to use 4 x 6m HyperMats with a 4 port TimeMachine DF.

Wide Split

This configuration is recommended for wide split timing points. While one line of HyperMats will be adequate, to increase read rates we recommended adding a second line using a separate TimeMachine DF. This diagram shows 4 x 3m HyperMats being used, it is possible to use 4 x 6m HyperMats to create 24m wide split with a 4 port TimeMachine DF – to achieve this width a DF Mat Extension Cable must be used.
