Orbiter Timing Chips
Orbiter is a world leader in timing systems and has the largest selection of proprietary UHF and Microwave timing chips in the world, with 14 standard timing chips.
Our commitment to offering high value systems at competitive pricing has enabled us to sell systems to every continent in the world and to countries others would generally consider as a supplier, such as China.
Orbiter systems allow race operators to utilize any combination of 3 types of chips in the same race:
|Orbiter DT-101 Chip This patent pending circular tag is small and compact, offers 15 feet read range and is the most affordable tag. It may be worn on the shoe, bib or other specified location. The DT-101 is great for fun runs, Stair Climbs, and corporate events. Our patented paper is biodegradable but is impervious to water on the day of the event. This recyclable paper was developed in the Northwest (circa 1920’s) to withstand our environment and will last 6 months.|
|Orbiter DT-101 (Bib Chip) This bib chip is optimized for mountain bikes, mud events and other extreme events where the greatest read range is desired. It is great for adventure races, rallies, 5K, 10K and Marathons. Bibs may be customized with your logo information (by us, or your self). Please call us when using your own printer so that we can ensure that two important features are included. Typically this modification does not increase the cost of the bib. The DT - 101 may be left on the bib, or removed and zip-tied to a shoe or other apparel.|
Re-Usable Timing Chips
Our passive UHF tags are made from Tezlon, are long lasting, re-usable, guaranteed for 5 years and are available in bright 4-color custom printing with a minimum order of 1000 units.
|Orbiter MRT-301 Chip This chip is designed to be worn on wrists and is convenient to walkers and others that have difficulty bending down. It is also excellent for schools where the custom numbering identifies teachers and students by color and class number. The Orbiter system allows tags to be traded between classes and individual data retained for each class and student. In 5K’s walkers and others may prefer this tag since it dangles from the wrist as opposed to being tied to a shoe.|
|Orbiter LRT-401 Microwave Chip - This is our microwave tag that has great range and accuracy as the wave length is the smallest chip timing tag on the market. No battery to replace and guaranteed 6 year life. It is long lasting and robust. The size is just 1 inch X 1 inch X 1/2 inch. This has the fastest read rate on the market with over 200 mph speeds. It is excellent on metal and impervious to EMI. This is the tag of choice for the military. For use in mud runs, military fitness assessment tests, and by jet fighters for refueling ID, boats, motorcycles, and race cars. In 1998, its older brother the Micron MicroStamp™ was flown in the space shuttle.|
