IDEC

 

Functioning as the brain of the of the Westhold Race Management System (RMS), the IDEC captures signals from the transponders as they are crossing the detection loop. The raw data it collects is seamlessly managed by the Race Manager software. Whether the vehicles are traveling at 10 mph, or 300 mph, the sophisticated electronics inside leave no room for finish-line debates. It can be used standalone or in a network of multiple timing points.

Transponders


Rechargeable

 

Each transponder has a unique serial number that identifies exactly which competitor is crossing the start/finish line, or any other timing point on a course. Unlike standard RFIDs, Westhold's transponders have an ultra high data rate (1mbit/sec) at HF (3-30MHz) frequencies. Because the high data rate generates many data points, the system is able to more accurately determine when a transponder crosses the center line of the start/finish.

Chargers


Individual Charger

 

Individual Charger

Transponders are quickly charged with the convenient charging cradle. Max charge time is approximately 3 hours. Typical charge time is approximately 1 hour. LED lights on the transponder indicate full charge while in the charging cradle. When removed from the cradle the transponder green LED indicates approximate number of days of life left (up to 7 days). A red LED indicates when the transponder charge has less than 1 day remaining.
