But it also provides you the worlds’ lowest transponder price at $.05 each in a roll of 5,000.

With the Orbiter system, there’s no need to worry about placing the wrong chip on the wrong bib. This is because of how our system works in you placing a blank RFID inlay on the bib. You can set the encoder counter and it starts incrementing up from there. Check sum quality control assures your numbers are correct.

The enrollment machine allows writing and rewriting on tags with your unique ID. Or you can incrementally count the tags automatically for bib numbers when passed through the Enroller. This is unique in the timing industry, since many timing equipment manufacturers do not allow writing your own tag IDs. Call for quotes.
Or as an option, the customer may purchase the transponder pre-applied onto bibs. Included is the electronic file that is used by the application software. Most customers purchase this option as there is no minimum purchase requirement.
For full service, you may purchase custom colored and designed bibs with the transponder and everything included. Safety pins extra.
RFID Bib tags
The tags have special foam paired to works together with the radio signal from the reader.
Orbiter tests each tag prior to sale and found that many GEN II Standard tags operate differently. For example, several suppliers tags consistently have 1/3 the read range compare to ours. A small percentage do not even have identifiers on the tags. Without adequate working tags, you might have to postpone the race because of the lack of workable timing equipments. Using Orbiters pre-tested tags ensures excellent working RFID bibs without fear of malfunctions.
