Using advanced pattern recognition, The IDEC decoder can determine with great accuracy and precision the instant each vehicle with a transponder crosses the center of the detection loop. Information is sent to a PC running our FREE Race Manager Software for analysis and storage. Data can then be distributed to other devices such as scoreboards, printers, wireless hand-held lap time viewers, and other third party devices. The IDEC can be used standalone or in a network of multiple timing points. INCLUDES BALUN, LOOP ANTENNA, COAX, AND NETWORK CABLES.
There is no comparison. Ownership of Westhold equipment requires a one-time purchase. "Ownership" of subscription based transponders has customers paying again and again. It would be like buying a new transponder every two years.
