Orbiter Markets. The Orbiter advantage is greater versatility in timing events because the timer is free of mats and overhead structures.
Orbiter is used today for both small (85 people) and large races (30,000 + People)!
So easy to use, Orbiter is the only rental system that can be set up in less than 3 minutes. Each mat system is 5 times the weight than Orbiter and have 22 connections including cable fittings. Add more than one row of mats, and you easily have a system that can weigh hundreds of pounds and would require a truck to move.
Orbiter bring everything in an all-in-one design with an easy step of turning it on and then to time your race. For example, the SLING timing system is just 15 lbs, so it ships anywhere economically. The SLING has a robust 20 ft. read range and can read 250 bibs per second without error. It’s also sensitive enough to be able to read tags on wherever racers placed the tags on their body.
The 27 lbs SPIRE on the other hand, has a long 40 ft. read range for large races over 1000 people or more. This version is the favorite of schools, military, and bike races. You can use it for any event from a large trail run to even a marathon.
Both the SLING and SPIRE can time any human powered event. Orbiters unique ability to network several Orbiters without IP addressing means you have a timing platform that scales from small to large automatically. Just turn them on and it communicates with each other automatically. You can even use a tablet to time the most complex races. There’s no need for timing table, you can kiss it goodbye and say hello to convenience!
For many types of Motor Sports or military applications who ask us about our Microwave Timing System. We respond that Orbiter is the only OEM in the world with a constantly active Microwave tag. The tag provides the highest read rates due to the tag being always on. It also brings the benefit of the system being the longest range in the world compare to other systems. The Microwave tag also has the benefit of not needing to recharge ever, making it easy to use for as long as 5 years.
