Orienteering Path Reader
Price: $4,995.00 each. Buy four for $2,995.00 each. Buy 10 for $1,995.00 each.
Firstly, the rugged backpack has an extended 40 feet RFID read range. It’s ideal for Trail Runs. This is because the detector weighs 18 pounds and can be placed on remote trails using mountain bikes. The Path Reader can also go on the ground for automated reads. There is no button pressing, proximity card insertion, or manual intervention. And the read distance is controllable for close up or long range detections.
Additionally, the Path Reader’s battery life is eight hours. The Path also has up to 48 hours of battery life with an optional battery pack.
One benefit of the Path is a high flow reader. This lets up to 250 people pass at one time. This means no bottlenecking. Bottlenecking happens with other orienteering detectors. Using cellular data, the Path has the ability to track participants in real time. The cellular data connects in real time to the Start/Finish computer. To win a race, multiple Paths can be used for detection order.
In addition, WI-FI can be used. Event managers can use a manual download backup. The Path operates on a 220 volt or 120 volt AC/24 volt DC battery.>/p>
The software comes with a RIC (Remote Intelligent Communication) feature. It uses advanced “Space Age” condition monitoring. This means the event manager sees the real time status of all readers along a course. This happens as long as long as there is cellular or satellite connectivity. Otherwise, the readers operate in logging mode. Operators can download data at their own convenience.
The Path is ideal for Trail Running events, obstacle courses and Path events. A Path event is an event where many detectors are set along a compass course. The participant determines the order of detection between packs.
The Path Reader is useful for allocating resources, such as refreshments and food, on a trail run. Additionally, the Path better predicts walkers and runners dropping off the trail. Also, the Paths are designed for desert, arctic, or tropical operation.
Finally, the Path is approved for airline travel and NEMA 4 Operation. Iridium Satellite Connectivity is optional. This connectivity can be used for real time results anywhere in the world.
