Easy setup and highest reliability. Combining the patented foldable ground antenna with our self developed UHF transponders creates an unmatched solution for the largest of running events.
The robust design also pays off at many other kinds of races like MTB races or mass participation triathlons. The precision of the system is 200 ms.
The iconic red foldable mat has become inherent part of hundreds of start and finish lines in sports competitions all over the world.
The setup can be done in a few seconds. This saves personnel and storage costs. Race organizers benefit from the quick installation of split points. Road closures can be significantly shorter if the technical infrastructure is set up and dismantled faster.
The Track Box Passive allows UHF transponder timing with only one small device. The hands-free solution is easy to carry, super fast in setup and managed remotely. With UHF reader, GPS and battery integrated, it is the ideal device for split points, remote timing locations and advanced race visualization.
We are the first company in the sports industry to develop our own disposable UHF transponder. At a thickness of only 1.5 mm, the transponder provides the highest detection rates on the market.
Transponder can be purchased on roll or ready attached to a personalized bib. Seatpost stickers and Triathlon Tags complete the range.
Perfect for special purposes like mass road cycling events. With high signal power these antennas provide long range and high precision. The passive transponder is usually put to the seatpost sticker participants have attached to their bike.
Please note: Using the High Gain UHF Antenna you need to comply to legal regulations and the correct setup is very important to achieve good results!
The passive UHF antenna can be used with all race|result Passive Transponders.

|1) Transponders are detected multiple times while crossing the antenna. The detection with the highest signal strength – right above the antenna – is used for timing.
2) With transponders attached correctly. 3) Higher speeds are possible, detection rate may be lower. 4) Use GPS time to get most accurate results.
Ready, set, chip! Now you can easily encode your own bib transponders. Wherever, whenever and as many as you like!
We are happy to hear, timers around the world love the idea of programming their own passive transponders and integrated Chip2Go into their workflow - during race preparation and on site.
With the Firmware Update 1.0.0, we fixed the issues in the transponder programming process that occurred with some Chip2Go machines, mainly in UHF frequency ranges used outside of Europe. Firmware updates can be easily done via USB stick.
