Certified Orbiter Race Timer (CORT)
Orbiter is perfect for your timing needs:
The best reasons for becoming a Orbiter’s race timer is that you will gain greater customer satisfaction. You will be able to time any human powered event. You will make more money. You will make more money because our inlays are less expensive and more responsive than other inlays. Testing shows Orbiter inlays have 40% greater distance and the read range with our readers is controllable. Our equipment is less expensive because we made the Plastic Pelican Box obsolete. This saves you money because there is less hardware to purchase. Event setup costs are far less expensive. Less skilled people are needed lowering your labor cost. Less vehicles because for most races you car is all you need. Our product is 28 lbs versus 138 lbs. Lastly, our product is more time accurate as measured by independent third parties. Orbiter is used by thousands of events, hundreds of non-profits, and all lines of military service. Canadian Armed Forces and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization too.
Example the Orbiter advantage for World Timers: Shown is a St. Patrick Day 5 K run. This timer previously owned a system that used a Pelican Control Box. (Orbiter has made this box obsolete meaning not need.) The timers said it was a real paint to set up the competitive timing system due to cabling into the Pelican Time box. In cold mornings connecting the fitings was a real struggle.
Shown below are live results shown on an HDMI device. With just three clicks on your computer real time results are displayed.
Verizon has made Orbiter a cellular reseller to help you lower costs and improve race day way point service. No other timing manufacture has this! The service is NOT a hot spot but new 4G industrial modems. They are easily retrofitted into your existing Orbiter system. Call us because for as low cost $ 10.00 per month you get special data cellular with priority on the cell tower. This makes your way points affordable for live tracking at great distances.
Shown below is near instant set up consisted of rolling the Orbiter into place and “turning on”.
Even large races of 15,000 are timed this way. Safe for airline travel as luggage. Everything needed was fit into a Chevy Equinox. As a timer this makes you price competitive anywhere because you can use an airport rental car rather than a truck to transport all your registration, timing, and results display equipment.
We even encourage you to keep using your old equipment. Run a mixed Fleet if you ant too! Just like successful business people do in many industries. No cool-aide is sold at Orbiter.
Buy inlays for pennies and make over $ 1.00 per runner more with Orbiter. Our inlays are a fraction of the cost of other chips. The en-roller machine lets you write and re-write your own numbers on your tags. AND, you can use any inlay too. Not just ours. Thus you gain a higher return on investment. And our easy to use software is a tool that allows you to time any human powered event. Other timing systems can’t make these claims because many events can’t be timed effectively with mats and overhead structures.
Another benefit is that we use a Localized Network Design. This means you the timer controls everything at the Finish line. Your laptop is your server. There is no server in the CLOUD that allows a third party to cause a problem with your real time event. All control of the event is with you at your Finish server. Real time results are boosted to a web page or phone for customer viewing from your finish server. The CLOUD method, where the server is in the CLOUD, is a problem. Adding reliability to remote detector monitoring Orbiter’s cellular solution is also more robust. Orbiter has condition monitoring that streams real time notices to you for each detector. We use powerful industrial data cell modems. Our unique code continually “tickles” the cell tower so you don’t get dropped off. Why not request a free download of our software to try? It will take you 10 minutes and it is night and day better than you have ever seen before.
Setting up remote detectors is a snap. You an quickly click your race route and ad one, two, or more detectors to work in unison at one time point. No button pushing at the detector way point. Our system works just like NASA Mission Control. You the timer at the Finish have full control of all detectors in real time. Plus, no plastic pelican box with cable and wires. Those have been made obsolete. Ours our powerful just like an iPhone. Big and bulky boxes are a thing of the past.
We understand that once you learn software, you don’t want to change. Take a 10 minutes hands on use of Orbiter 4 software will be worth it. Timers that switch to Orbiter comment how easy it is to use. This is why you can rent your Orbiter equipment to people that have never timed a race before. We use the most advanced tools and continually up grade the software to keep it on top.
Additionally, you have the freedom to choose which social media tools, registration platforms, and reporting you want with your event. You can even use your own credit card provider.
As a timer you will be taught how to rent your equipment so you can make even more money. Also, makes you more competitive. It is not possible to rent mats or build yourself side antennas to first time users successfully. Rental customers need the simplicity of Orbiter’s all in one design. Given that Orbiter rents equipment when timers need it, you aren’t forced to buy more than you need. Each part is compatible with another. Because we have used the same proven technology for years, there is no need to purchase different RFID readers for different events.
Orbiter is together in one piece of equipment. Just pull out the Orbiter and turn it “on”. Orbiter understands it’s software is the only timing software with “Reprocessing that works.” The ability to “Clone” (copy) events. Both are needed to ensure that race data is not lost in event there was a configuration mistake. Both Reprocessing and Cloning mean you can recover a race quickly.
Orbiter is easily transported and mobile. A mat system typically weighs 140 pounds. But an Orbiter only weighs 30 pounds.
Orbiter’s software is the most advanced and easy to use. The software even works on tablets, which can be used in all weather and allows the race timer complete mobility to run the race. Additionally, we offer an optional industrial cellular package.
