Product description

Our electronic timing system consists of physical part (unit with electronics, one or two display boards, accessories) and of software, which runs on your computer.

The customer gets “all in one”: simple and robust, but very effective system for simple use without computer support, while connecting to the computer brings up benefits of all advanced features and functions.

Connection to the computer is made via robust industry standard RS232 (COM) port. An innovative internal communication procedure prevents user from unpleasant COM port settings, which are done automatically.


Many goodies as different operation modes, LOG file, Start lists importing, measuring of reaction times, stereo acoustic warning signals, many different starting modes, power saving modes, text mode... guarantees additional satisfaction for the customers who are thus able to personalize the system in many ways.

Software is created deliberately with ease of use in mind but not with sacrificed usability. The easy to understand graphical user interface is written in Slovenian, Croatian and English language at the time. Many original ideas were applied during designing process in order to get as usable product as possible. We are constantly looking for possible improvements for future versions and upgrades.
