Swimming Timing Systems

ALGE-TIMING offers a swimming timing system for all levels. From an inexpensive semiautomatic system, which is idea for small clubs and/or those with a limited budget, to a fully automatic system, which can include touchpads and trackstart starting blocks, that can be used at the highest swimming competition level. We also offer a variety of aquatic scoreboard solutions.

As each pool is different, we can customise your order to meet your requirements. Contact Us today to find out more and/or to arrange a demo of our ALGE-TIMING swimming products.

In addition to our timing products, we are pleased to be able to offer the Indico Virtual Trainer, which is a unique pacing system that enables clubs and individual swimmers to improve their personal bests by training against specific times (for example World Records, National Qualifying and even rival times) that can be lit up on the floor of the pool.

Pacing System

Indico Virtual Trainer

Introducing the Indico Virtual Swim Trainer, a revolutionary training system that helps swimmers to swim faster, by training at a desired speed and acceleration rate displayed via the LED pacing lights placed on the bottom of the pool.

This patented high tech system is easy to setup and use, and allows coaches and/or swimmers to set the pace that needs to be followed, enabling you to create your own training table and speed and endurance workouts.

Swimmers can reach optimal performance levels and success by:

  • Setting and following their own desired pace.
  • Following competitors swim set pace.
  • Adapt step by step your own swim set pace.

The LED strip can be placed either on the pool floor or on the water surface along the floating lane line. At the beginning of the training session, the strip receives pre-programmed impulses that progressively switch on the LED lights, according to a previously established time and for a specific number of laps. The athlete’s point of reference is the constant light flow that can be easily followed.

Key features of the system are:

      • Up to 12 different colors allow as many swimmers to train in the same lane.
      • Up to 8 different independently configurable lanes.
      • Solutions with 25m or 50 meter LED light strips.
      • International Patent, distributed under the license of Indicotech s.r.ls.
