Morgan Hill (I-Newswire) August 21, 2013 - Introduction
Thinkify LLC, a supplier of embedded RFID solutions, is pleased to announce that Agee Race Timing has selected the new TR-290-B wireless RFID reader as the RFID engine for their latest race timing application. Customers will benefit from a cable-free solution for RFID race timing applications that is very easy to setup and use.
RFID is fast becoming the preferred way to capture runner's times and splits in races both large and small because it can eliminate or greatly reduce the need for manual data entry. Agee Race Timing has just released their latest software for race timing incorporating RFID data capture, an automated camera for capturing runner's images, an RFID-enabled results kiosk and a feature-rich web interface for race results.
The central element of this system is Thinkify's new weatherproof RFID reader, the TR-290-B. The TR-290-B is battery powered, eliminating the need for power cables at track side and communicates with a host PC via a long-range, Bluetooth interface.
Agee Race Timing selected the TR-290-B over other RFID readers because it combines excellent read performance with extremely simple setup and operation.
"A great thing about the TR-290 is that readers can be setup in minutes and don't require the lengthy boot cycle of other models. The wireless Bluetooth interface means that the host computer can be located up to 100 feet away, giving me a lot of flexibility on my installation.The wireless interface also means that readers can be installed on both sides of the start/finish line without the need for expensive gantries or dangerous cable mats that can present a tripping hazard.
That's really nice!" -- Brian Agee, owner of Agee Race Timing.
Designed for outdoor as well as indoor use, the TR-290-B incorporates an IP-67 rated enclosure and includes a pole mounting kit in the purchase price.
The TR-290-B and many other RFID products are available on-line direct from Thinkify, LLC.
The Agee Race Timing software version 3.9 has just been released and is available from Agee Race Timing.
About Agee Race Timing
I grew up running. Starting in high school and then at the collegiate level. After college I realized there was something missing in the running community. Timing races was either too expensive or too difficult. I wanted to change this.
That's when I decided to create my own race timing software. Since 2011 I've been continuously developing and adding features to the software. If you need software, hardware, shoe tags, bibs, inlays or even somebody to time your race contact Agee Race Timing. If I can't help you I can probably find somebody who can.
