These timing heads use a radio transmitter instead of a cable to connect to the timer. There are no cables to lay, so moving the start and finish points (between show jumping classes, for example) is simple and easy. The heads can operate on two separate radio channels, allowing two sets of timing to be used in close proximity to one another (e.g., in adjacent rings at a large equestrian event). The radio signal uses special digital security coding to provide immunity from other radio devices. The receiver (which is built in to the main timer unit) warns if other transmitters are in use, and also indicates if the head batteries are running low.
The head is powered by internal rechargeable batteries which give 24 hours of continuous use between charges. The range of the radio signal is 200 metres (line of sight). The maximum distance between head and reflector is 30 metres. The heads can also be connected to the timer by cable if required. One receiver (which is built into the C700 and C830 timers) and one charger are required for two heads (start and finish). All our timing equipment can be legally used anywhere in Europe without the need for a site licence.
