Speed Timers

The SPEED TIMER is a portable and safe (12 volt) system. Originally designed for UK dry-ski slopes, it has been used for track events and can be used for events where mechanical contact is not possible, e.g. horse events.

The time is displayed to 0.01 second and is the time between the closure of the start contact (mechanical or electronic) and the closure of the finish contact (electronic). The reset button clears the display and sends a signal to the start gate.
