What is TIMING TECHNOLOGIES Timing System and how does it work?
The TIMING TECHNOLOGIES Timing system is a high-tech, easy to use timing device. It can provide accurate net and split times for every individual athlete. A timing chip is a miniature transponder in a specially designed housing, marked with a unique identification number. The chip is a waterproof glass capsule that contains a silicon chip and an energizing coil. The timing chip can be used under all weather conditions, wet and dry, cold and hot. The chip starts to send its signal when it crosses various mats which are placed at the Start & Finish gates and at designated split points on the course. Your time at such points will be captured and duly recorded.
This timing technology will be provided and managed by Timing Technologies India (TTIL), the official distributor of the Mylaps Sports Timing System in India and Asia.
