What is RFID?
Insight Timing Services uses Ultra High Frequency Radio Frequency Identification (UHF RFID) to time all of its races. UHF RFID works by sending radio waves in front of the timing point. When a timing chip receives the radio signal it sends back the competitor's unique race number, which is recorded along with the time of day. A chip may be read many times, but the last time it is read (as a participant crosses the finish line) is the one that is reported. From here our powerful race timing software calculates all the different aspects of the race to produce a variety of results.
What type of timing system do you use?
Insight Timing Services uses world class timing hardware combined with superior software. It has been proven to provide outstanding results at some of the world’s largest and most difficult races to time.
