ARGES Reflex Photocell

The ARGES Reflex Photocell consists of a transmitter and a reflector unit.
The main unit transmits an infrared beam towards the ARGES photocell reflector positioned on the other side of the timing line. When correctly aligned, the reflected beam is received creating an unbroken invisible beam of light. Anything or anyone that crosses the field of the beam creates an interruption which is instantly reported to attached timing device(s), meeting the International Sport Federations standards.

The ARGES Reflex Photocell allows constant monitoring of the return beam signal to allow a simple cell alignment process.

An accessible internal battery provides stand alone operation, and a connection for an external battery or a DC power supply allows long term or fixed installation setups.

The ARGES Reflex Photocell features two output contacts allowing connections to two different timing devices simultaneously (main & back-up for example). A small switch panel on the side of the photocell allowing users to choose from the many operating modes and options, making it compatible with all types of timing equipment.

Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, the ARGES Reflex Photocell is a highly precise and reliable timing device even in extreme meteorological conditions and temperatures.

OMEGA Scan'O'Vision Star

The OMEGA Scan'O'Vision Star cameras take up to 2000 images each second with a high resolution 2048 pixel vertical line, and the corresponding time is displayed with each picture. This groundbreaking resolution gives much more information, providing the photofinish judge a higher zoom and even more detail, resulting in faster decisions in those tightest of finishes.

All Star cameras now feature remote control of the lens iris and focus functions from within the photofinish software.

All models include a built in digital inclinometer. This visual aid ensures the camera is perfectly level, which is a crucial element of ensuring fair and accurate results from a photofinish system.

The OMEGA 20/20 Vision camera includes the SWISS TIMING patented Spatial Alignment System. By switching camera alignment to matrix view, the recording column of pixels can be placed very precisely along the finish line very quickly and easily. This view also permits the operator to demonstrate to a judge that the camera has been correctly set up.

For the cost conscious customer, the Star 220 camera offers great value for money with the same OMEGA Scan'o'Vision Star image quality.

OMEGA Star photofinish cameras measure time to one half of a millisecond, beyond requirements for a wide range of sports including; Athletics, Cycling, Horse Racing and Greyhound Racing, Speed Skating, Rowing and Canoeing.

Star cameras are self contained devices, needing only a Gigabit network cable to connect it to the capture PC or laptop up to one hundred metres away, and extendable with standard repeated devices.

With the optional internal battery pack installed, a Star camera can continue to operate for up to one hour after mains power failure. This option is recommended for cameras that will be in use outdoors. An external 12v supply can also allow the camera to be used when mains power is not available.

With a standard Nikon fit lens mount, users globally have a wealth of high quality lenses to choose from. Please note that due to the high resolution of the Star camera, some lenses such as those made for digital SLRs do not permit the capture of the full image. Please contact us for advice.

Star software has been completely rewritten to take advantage of advances in technology.

Using the depth of knowledge and feedback from our users around the sporting world, the new software adds intuitive control to the tools common to the Scan-O-Vision family.

Designed to accommodate exacting requirements of Olympic and World Championship sport, the Star camera software is feature rich, able to communicate with results systems, many scoreboards and displays, as well as being able to integrate with wind measurement, false start systems and transponder tracking.

Templates for both screen and printing can create customised layouts to include event and sponsor logos and can be made easily by the user with the template editor.

Such created output can also be PDF or web friendly graphics to get your results online quickly.

OMEGA OCP5 Touchpads

The OMEGA OCP5 touch pad consists of a high grade stainless steel frame that supports the individual and interlinked non slip, nonabrasive resilient polyvinyl chloride slats. The reliability and durability of the touch pad, which has been designed for sustained heavy duty use is unaffected by hard water and chemical corrosion. The contact strips and the surface are adjusted in such manner that any point on the touch pad reacts to the same force, between two and three kilograms. It is highly sensitive to local impact but does not react to an overall change in surface pressure; thus eliminating false impulses due to waves.

The horizontal contact strips are fixed within the touch pad and in this way give a timing signal when they close due to an applied pressure. Ultra long life is guaranteed with the integration of high quality materials and leading edge technology, making this product the reference for Swimming timing equipment. Small repairs due to hard use can even be carried out by the client himself. This way, no touch pads need to be returned for repair. The OCP5 is available in four sizes that all feature the same top level of quality. To guarantee this, all components are carefully selected and thoroughly tested before assembly. A specially designed storage and transport trolley is available as a recommended option and can accommodate up to ten full height OCP5 touch pads. All these advanced features guarantee accurate results with no compromise.
