TimeMachine, the next generation of digital timing systems.

Our TimeMachine Readers come in two different technologies, Dual Frequency (DF) and Ultra-High Frequency (UHF). Each technology has different features and is best used for different type of events. 

The DF Technology is best for any event that has environmental factors, such as water, rain, snow, mud or ice. Typical events that it works best for are Triathlons and Mud Runs.

The UHF Technology is best for high participation events. This is due to the lower tag cost, a significant factor when you reach 2,000 participant races.

All races in-between can use either technology, though we highly recommend our DF technology for your event, as it is not affected by water or human interference, meaning better, more accurate results.

 

We have three main reader categories you can choose from, DF, UHF or Hybrids.  Your selection will depend on your usage.

When timing a wide range of events, we recommend our Hybrid8 readers.  These give the most flexibility, and allow you to utilise both DF and UHF technology, depending on the race you are timing.  Timing a Triathlon? Use the DF technology with our amazing Infinity tags.  Timing a 2,000 person marathon? Use the UHF technology and purchase cheap UHF tags.

For events that are content with doing the same events each year, you want to pick a single technology.  Either DF or UHF will depend on a range of factors, such as type of events, how many per year, and number of participants.

Below you’ll find more details on each of our TimeMachines, or download our brochure.

TimeMachine Pro V3

The TimeMachine Pro-XWR V3 is the professional reader with all the bells and whistles. We’ve added enhanced features by working closely with our professional race timers so everything you need is built into a lightweight ergonomic case, weighing in at only 7kg.

Includes USB, Ethernet & Wi-fi communications with integrated 3G Comms and SIM card for web connectivity, with radio modem for mesh networking as an upgradable extra for remote split or spotter systems. Also has DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) allows network devices to automatically obtain a valid IP address.

The standard system supports 4 x UltraMats or HyperMats.

Start time is less than 1 second with system instantly ready from power up.

Enhanced Communications:

X = eXtended router functions (Wifi & DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol)
W = Web enabled with integrated 3G Comms and SIM card for web connectivity
R = Radio Modem communications (Upgradable Extra)

All our systems come in bundles with all the tools you need to start timing.

New Features

  • Bigger LCD with larger font making it easier to read.
  • GPS is the most common true time source, TimeMachine now uses GPS for an accurate time source. So your TimeMachine will always be on the true time, making syncing your reader time a thing of the past.
  • High/Medium/Low switch allows you to set transmit field strength easily depending on what type of tag you are using.
  • Transmit on/off button. Simply toggle on or off, allowing you to stop reading tags without turning the reader off.
  • Improved interference and electrical noise immunity as standard.
  • New minimised weak zones at ends of mats using time division multiplexing.

Key Features

  • Supports four (3M or 6M) Trident UltraMats
  • Robust, waterproof, small (L27 x W24 x H18 cm) durable plastic, latching case
  • 12VDC, 9Ah internal battery
  • Power monitoring system with LED battery level indicator.
  • Instant-ready system from power up. Start time is < 1 second.
  • Large Color LCD display showing key information
  • Supports active transponders, with very large receive loop dimensions (up to 8m x 1m coverage per loop).
  • Internal Beeper (can be disabled by configuration)
  • Receivers and transmitters report their status

Enhanced Communications

We have built in Wi-Fi and 3G as standard. with the upgradable otion to include Radio Communications. Also has DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) which allows network devices to automatically obtain a valid IP address.

3G enables mobile ultra fast-broadband Internet access to your Pro reader along with a USB 3G dongle for your laptop. This means that the laptop and reader can talk to each other from anywhere with 3G coverage.

If you don’t expect to get 3G coverage, we recommend upgrading to the point-to-point Radio communications built into your reader. The radio provides a wireless serial connection of up to 10 km so you can link your laptop with several Club or Pro readers creating a wide Local Network.

TimeMachine DF Club-LTE V3

No fuss, simple to use systems for club volunteers who don’t time events every day. No need to be an IT guru. Just turn them on.

The TM-Club-LTE is ideal for small events and clubs. Club members aren’t timing events every day and often aren’t technically minded, so we’ve kept things simple on the outside to make it easy for you to set up, and turn on. But the smarts on the inside are all there and packed into a small, lightweight, waterproof plastic latched ‘pelican case’.

The standard system supports 2 x 3m or 6m UltraMats and is up to 4 times more power efficient than previous models. That translates into 7 hours minimum expected operational life on the internal battery.

And start up time is less than 1 second with system instantly ready from power up. Simple as that!

This puppy weighs only 6kg!! Take it on the plane as hand luggage.

Choose from:

  • TM-Club-LTE V2, the base system, comes with Ethernet and USB as standard with Static IP address
