Louisville, Colo., May 24, 2016 — New active tag from ChronoTrack, the industry-leading provider of complete race solutions for endurance sports, enables improved accuracy while timing mud and obstacle events, triathlons and cycling races.
“We know that the extreme conditions plaguing mud/obstacle events, triathlons and cycling races—the same ones that make them enticing for participants—can sometimes be an issue for timers using passive tags,” says Ray Wheeler, Product Manager, ChronoTrack. “As a result, we’ve brought a better solution to the market with our active tag solution, at a mid-range price point that meets the needs of the majority of the market. The system includes a battery embedded in each transponder that operates on a different frequency than our UHF timing systems, making it powerful enough to collect tag reads through mud or water. This product will be a game-changer for extreme races and events.”
ChronoTrack active tags have been thoroughly tested, including beta testing through Spartan Race Inc., and provide increased accuracy, regardless of environmental factors—ensuring accurate results for your athletes. The orange tags are custom-made for ChronoTrack, with a unique configuration and hardware built specifically for the needs of our partners. The system also ties directly into our current software infrastructure, allowing timers to choose between active and passive technology for each event.
The ChronoTrack Active Tag solution can be purchased or rented, depending on specific race needs, making this an easy solution for timers with a limited number of events needing this type of solution, or a long-lasting investment for timers focusing on extreme races.
