Ultrak L10 Lane Timer: The Ultrak L10 can be used to time track races with up to 10 lanes as well as road races (cross country, 10K's, marathons, etc.) with up to 8,000 participants. A linkgate is provided which connects the ten lane buttons to a separate unit, eliminating tangled wires to the lane timer itself. Four digit bib numbers can be pre-assigned to lanes in track mode and entered at the finish for road races. Data can be uploaded to a PC or printed out during or after an event for later review.
RACECLOCK: Super-bright 6” tall red LED five digit (9:59.59) double-sided model. The RACECLOCK is self-contained and operates from internal rechargeable batteries. With a fully charged battery, the clock will operate up to 10 hours or more. The RACECLOCK is housed in a rugged, weather-resistant, tamper-proof case, for a lifetime of reliable service. These clocks are not designed to be "rain-proof" and must be covered with a clear poly bag or other means of protection during inclement weather. These models have a rugged aluminum case and include a carrying handle, built-in keypad for selecting timing modes, time-of-day and preset times. A battery charger is included with plug-in power cord and charge indicator.
