The Elite Reader provides a turnkey sports timing solution for medium to large active sports events. The Elite Reader has an onboard Linux computer to provide data storage, data processing and capabilities for several communications mediums – including Ethernet and GPRS wireless modem.
The Elite Reader supports four (4) 2.5m x 1.2m IPICO Sports Antenna Mats OR two (2) 5.0m x 1.2m IPICO Sports Antenna Mats.
The Elite Reader system (with antenna mats) is very simple to set-up. The system has auto-tuning capabilities on start up. Multiple systems – both Elite Reader and Lite Reader systems may be utilized together in various configurations to satisfy the demands of larger timing areas and/or specialized sports requirements, and there is no need to synchronize multiple systems.
Sports time-keeping requires reliable medium range reading of light-weight tags in large numbers, the ability to read many tags simultaneously as participants crowd past the finish line, and the use of robust weather-proof equipment that can operate in RF-unfriendly conditions. The IPICO Dual Frequency technology is ideally suited to this application, combining the benefits of low frequency signals for penetration through lossy substances, and the high data through-put usually associated with HF or UHF systems, so that it can provide timing accuracy and avoid tag data being lost due to over-congestion.
Being able to operate independently is essential, so the reader is powered by an internal rechargeable battery, and contains a flash drive for storage of tag numbers and times. These can be uploaded to a computer, or remotely accessed if the reader is connected to a network.
