Tracker - Pursuit Clocks

The TRACKER has been designed and developed by SWISS TIMING in parallel to the STARTING GATE, the two units complementing each other. It is used in pairs on all cycling events using Velodromes and cycling tracks, such as Individual and Team Pursuit, 500 meters Time Trial, 1Km Time Trial and Team Sprint.

Its dynamic design features two digits on its front face, each composed of 150 amber LEDs, which automatically adapt to the ambient light conditions thanks to an integrated sensor. It is topped by two LED semaphores, red and green, which during a pursuit race, provide the athletes with information about whether they are leading or trailing at that time.

Linked to a pair of starting gates, they ensure a fully automated start sequence, and a perfectly synchronized opening of the gates, as well as the sending of a synchronized signal to the optional timing device.

The set includes a Main Judge Controller and connection cables for the starting gates. This easy to use TRACKER controller is equipped with an LCD matrix screen showing the lap status of the competition. It allows the selection of the number of laps to run, and a command to start the countdown sequence.

During their start phase, the TRACKERS display a 50 seconds countdown, as required by the UCI rules. Geographically located at the centre of the Velodrome, the "Official Starter" launches the countdown from the Main Judge Controller. To help the athletes to keep concentrated on the start signal, the TRACKER beeps at 30 seconds, 10 seconds, and then every second for the last five seconds, with a different sound for the last beep. The volume is adjustable, and the last sound (signalling the start) can be switched to a synthesized pistol sound. As soon as both STARTING GATES are open, the timing starts and the TRACKERS automatically switch to "Lap Counter" mode after 5 seconds. All distance values and the amount of laps are entered.

Both referees assigned as lap counters may independently decrease the laps by using a keypad located on the left side of the clock. The system is used by SWISS TIMING, and is homologated by the UCI for national and international competitions.
