DF v UHF
Enjoy the best of both worlds with the TimeMachine Hybrid.
You asked, and we listened.
TimeMachine Hybrid gives you, the timer, the flexibility of having DF and UHF in one reader. This gives you the opportunity to compete for events with high participation numbers using UHF’s lower tag cost, while also allowing you to compete for events that DF excels in.
Less capital investment, more event timing opportunities, more reward for your hard work.
DF v UHF has always been a compromise between ability and tag prices. DF is superior technology in that it will deliver higher read rates giving less missed chip times and will provide more accurate results as it can determine precisely when an athlete crosses the finish line. UHF is superior from a business case perspective, cheaper tags allowing them to be disposable.
What’s in the box? Everything.
Unlike other RFID equipment manufacturers, your TimeMachine will be completely unlocked. This allows you to use your existing Antenna and gives you the freedom to purchase Gen2 UHF tags from anywhere. Learn more about Unlocked here.
Now your TimeMachine can talk to your computer using the internet. Get live results from a timing point that is in another country or 20km away.
Superior RF Performance
Environmental noise and Interference can dramatically reduce the performance of RFID timing systems. Our engineers have solved this issue with some proprietary wizardry to deliver industry-leading electrical noise immunity – so that Timers deliver higher quality results.
GPS time source
Using GPS your TimeMachine will always be on the true atomic time, making syncing your reader time a thing of the past.

Your unlocked TimeMachine is able to decode any UHF Tag operating using Gen2 or IPX, in both ETSI and FCC frequencies.
No one knows your business like you do. For this reason, Trident systems come unlocked and therefore compatible with a wide range of timing software packages. This gives you the freedom to use software of your choice.
If you are unsure if your software is compatible with TimeMachine we recommend contacting your software provider to confirm. Alternatively, we offer our own timing software which is compatible with all our timing products.
