The Time Machine Wireless Raceclock Interface provides you with a convenient “cable-free” method of controlling your Electo-Numerics Raceclock using your Time Machine. It allows your to control one or more Raceclocks simultaneously for distances up to 500 feet away from your Time Machine (depending on obstacles). The interface system consists of a "Wireless Raceclock Interface" (transmitter unit) and a "Raceclock Wireless System Receiver" (receiver unit).
The Transmitter Unit plugs into either the Time Machine's External Clock port or the RS232 port via a Finish Results Adapter. It receives power from the Time Machine and can be pugged or unplugged at any time - even when the Time Machine's power is on and the clock is running.
It features an illuminated push-button switch which can be used to manually force a synchronization between Time Machine and Raceclock. The switch is illuminated whenever a signal is being transmitted.
The switch can also be used to place the unit into an "Auto-Sync" mode. In this mode, it can be used to automatically synchronize any number of Raceclocks.
Raceclock synchronization is typically to within 1/100th second of the Time Machine's internal timeclock.
When the Transmitter Unit receives "Finish Results" data from the Time Machine, it transmits this information to the receiver for displaying on the Raceclock. In order to receive Finish Results data, either a Finsh Results Adapter is required or a modification to the Time Machine is required. The Time Machine modification allows both "Timeclock and Finish Results" data to become available on the External Clock Port. Without this modification, the Finish Results data is only available on the Time Machine's RS232 port and the Finish Results Adapter is needed in order to access the data.
The Receiver Unit is designed to work with both the XL-Series (LED digit) and LM-Series (Flip digit) of Raceclock, allowing you to simultaneously control any number or combination of these two models. Each Raceclock being controlled requires a separate Receiver Unit to receive the Transmitter's signal and control the clock.
• Wirelessly control your Raceclock in a variety of different ways using the Time Machine.
• Wirelessly Synchronize any number of Raceclocks separated by any distance
• Use the Time Machine's keyboard to Preset, Clear, Start (with Up or Down Count) or Stop the Raceclock(s).
• Display Finish Results from a race timed by the Time Machine
• Works with all XL-Series (LED digit) and LM-Series (Flip digit) Raceclocks by Electro-Numerics.
The unit has an 8-pin connector that plugs into the "Remote Control" port of your Raceclock and its enclosure is attached to the side of the Raceclock with velcro fasteners.
The unit is powered by 2-AA batteries and power is applied when the Raceclock's power switch is turned on. The batteries typically last for 200 hours using standard alkaline - but up to 3000 hours when using high-capacity lithium AA batteries. A "low battery" indicator warns you when they should be replaced.
The Receiver Unit features an illuminated push-button switch which is used for programming wireless devices into memory and displaying status. It supports reception of signals from up to four different types of wirelss devices simultaneously.
These devices are:
1. Wireless Raceclock Interface (transmitter unit).
2. Wireless Keypad.
3. Wireless Grip Switch (up to 10 grip switches at the same time).
4. Wireless Gun Start Transducer.
