Timing Systems

Pricing Information



The iDEC decoder is the heart of the Westhold Race Management System (RMS). Its slim and clean looking interface hides highly sophisticated electronics capable of tracking transponders on vehicles moving at 300 miles per hour. It can be used standalone or in a network of multiple timing points.




Each transponder has a unique serial number which identifies exactly which competitor is crossing the start/finish line or any other timing point on a course. The Race Manager PC software displays this data which can then be sent to scoreboards, handheld devices, the Internet or locally networked computers.
