TERMS & CONDITIONS
These are our requirements & conditions of hire and usage of the Mylaps MX Transponder Timing System from ‘Timing Tech’.
We supply our own finish line office (self contained Transit van).
If the event requires the running of 2 tracks then the club will need to supply a suitable caravan/building for the finish line on the second track.
We supply all the operators of the equipment, but may need assistance removing and/or collecting transponders.
Two separate lengths of alkathene are required to be laid at the finish line for us to thread our loop through.
Contact us for installation instructions for the alkathene.
The transponders all have unique ‘pin numbers’. When they are fitted to a vehicle, each transponder emits a unique signal to the timing loop,
which is set up below the finish line. These signals pass along a coaxial cable to the decoder, where they are translated into results and passed onto a computer.
As each transponder needs to be programmed with each competitors details, as many entries as possible should be supplied to us 4-7 days prior to the event, but a few on the day entries can be handled. (Note: Day entries generally cause delays to event commencement while competitor details are entered into the
system). Also required 4-7 days prior are approximate times for Sign on and a practice/race schedule, any relevant information on the point scoring system to be used, and qualification/class requirements.
We have 365 transponders available for hire (supplied with clips & zip ties). Fitting instructions are available for correct fitting. We may need more
contact details of competitors who have not returned or may have damaged their assigned transponder. We will not be responsible for manual lap scoring vehicles without a Mylaps (AMB) MX Transponder fitted. As manual checks are carried out, we cannot effectively time classes that have competitors circulating without transponders fitted (i.e. a split class one with/one without transponders or competitors that don’t wish to pay for scoring).
Information that can be provided include qualifying times, overall & class race results, elapsed time of races, best lap time & on which lap, average speed (where the circuit lap distance is known) all within a few minutes of the end of each race. A printer will provide hard copy results. A ‘Race Monitor’ programme relays
from the timing system, the actual‘going race’ to wireless or wired network, to other computers or monitors to approx 300 metres distance.
Mylaps Live Timing & Event Results App are available to view the ‘live going race’. Some events will offer CTAS Live Timing which offers scroll back and sponsor promotion features and is available to view on PC’s as well as Android devices.
