Certified Orbiter Race Timer (CORT) $495 rental per event, or purchase a Spire for $ 4,995 plus software to start.
There are many benefits in becoming a race timer for Orbiter, with the first being of both the mechanical and social experiences in machine operation and customer interactions. You can earn income by being a timer with it made easy in part of how our inlays are made inexpensive in contrast to other products. (No need to worry about high cost from breakage!) It’s also easy to gain experience working with Orbiter without worrying about any technical difficulties due to the responsiveness its’ inlays are to our competitors’ inlays. You’ll be able to more focus on your job and learning from it rather than worrying about any potential problems or limiting factors.
Our light-weight equipments with the average weight of 28 lbs helps you become more efficient in setting up your events. This contrast with our competitors’ general weight of 138 lbs, a major difference. One example being the Plastic Pelican Box’ bulkiness, with wirings needed that Orbiter have no need for. This saves you money because there is less hardware to purchase and carry. Event setup costs are far less expensive due to requiring less amount of skill and manpower to set it up. Using Orbiter gives the benefit of not worrying about the logistics of carrying too many heavy hardware with our product.
Lastly, our product is more time accurate as measured by independent third parties with our inlays having 40% greater distance and read range more controllable than our competitors. Orbiter is used by thousands of events and by hundreds in non-profits, and this also includes by military services from the Canadian Armed Forces to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Example of 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 which Orbiter has made the Pelican Control Box obsolete. The timers said it was a real pain to set up the competitive timing system due to cabling in the Pelican Time box. This is further compounded during cold mornings where connecting the fittings was a real struggle.
Shown below are live results shown on an HDMI device. With just three clicks on your computer means real time results are displayed on your computer.
We also have an option that comes along with Orbiter in our deal with Verizon of having a 4G industrial modems installed in Orbiter! This comes with the added benefit with Verizon having made Orbiter a cellular reseller to help with lower costs and improve race day way point service. No other timing manufacture has this! To clarify, this service is NOT a hot spot but a new 4G industrial modems that directly connects to the internet. They are easily retrofitted into your existing Orbiter system. Call us because for a low cost of $10.00 per month, you can get special cellular data with priority on the cell tower. This makes your way points affordable for live tracking at a greater distance.
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 can fit into any vehicle as small as a Chevy Equinox. As a timer, this makes your 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, allowing to save on cost in transporting it.
You can buy inlays for pennies and make over $ 1.00 per runner more with Orbiter (great investment!) with it being a fraction of a cost from other chips. The benefits in using Orbiter is that whenever you enroll a racer into a race, it lets you write and re-write your own numbers on any tags and inlays whether it be from us or even from our competitors. Thus you gain a higher return on investment in Orbiter’s reusable tags and that Orbiter’s easy-to-use-software allows you to time any human powered event with flexibility. Other timing systems can’t make these claims because many events can’t be timed effectively because of them being limited by mats and overhead structures.
Another benefit is that we use a Localized Network Design. This means the timer, controls everything at the Finish line with your laptop being server. This itself provides security since there would be no server based on CLOUD to begin with that would allow third parties to cause a problem with your real time event. You’re the one in control with the Finish server with no outside interference. Despite being independent from CLOUD, Orbiter can still be able to connect real time results 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.
Setting up remote detectors is very simple, you can quickly choose your race route and add one, two, or more detectors to work in unison at one time point. There’s no need for constant button pushing at the detector way point. You at the Finish have full control of all detectors in real time with both speed and simplicity on your side! With our light-weight system versus our competitors’ heavy and convoluted systems of wires and mats, you’ll certainly won’t regret picking our over them!
We understand that once you learn how to use a software, you’ll feel hesitant to change. We respond with an offer of a free download where you can experience and sample our software. This comes with other Timers that switched to Orbiter that commented on how easy it is to use. This is why you can rent your Orbiter equipment to people that have never timed a race before even of beginners. We use the most advanced tools and continually upgrade the software to keep it on top, from old to young testers they’ll quickly learn how to use Orbiter.
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 and given instruction in how to rent your equipment so you can make the most out of your investment with Orbiter. It also gives you a better competitive edge than the complex set-up of both mats or build-yourself side antennas. It comes with the benefit of Orbiters’ parts being compatible with another, meaning there is no need to purchase different RFID readers for different events.
We understand that Orbiters’ 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 means you can recover a race quickly.
