Use Orbiter for your mile run test, daily mileage running programs, interval training for track, fundraisers, and etc,. Students can run in mass and free flow past the Orbiter reader without them needing to hold up bar codes to a scanner/camera without pause or slowing down. This is made possible by our patented wireless electronic wrist bands that allow racers to run and get scanned by Orbiter with no need to pause.
Since the wrist bands are guaranteed for 5 years, they are on an annual basis in the similar price range as barcodes (cheap!). Alongside with the wristbands, Orbiter runs on a localized design meaning that it does not need internet to function. You don’t have to worry such hassle when setting up software nor you have to worry about any security breaches. Cloud based lap counters on the other hand, cannot count laps with split times as accurately as Orbiter. Orbiter is easy to set up in a short time, perfect when on a tight schedule for a school event!

Schools can use this system for six School needs: (1) PE Class lap counting, (2) Mile Run Test, (3) PTA / PTO fund raising, (4) cross country races, (5) interval track training, (6) and Split Times. This is especially good for training large number of students for Mile Run in preparation for the final State test. The system is flexible with its reusable easy-to-trade RFID tags, making it easy to test between students in different races. It can also catch cheaters by viewing split times and minimum lap time. This enables a fairer race via accessing results in real time. It can even count mass number of kids all at once from the beginning of the race.
Teachers can track students’ laps automatically and get physical education results in real time from a tablet with the option to download to a computer later.
Orbiter can detect and tag as far as 20 feet of distance and able to do so at the speed of light. Over 250 students may be detected per second.
