The ALGE WTN is a compact radio system for timing and is equipped with the most updated technology. The WTN Wireless system is an affordable, integrated data and impulse radio system ideally suited for short-distance training applications or scoreboard data distribution where running wires is impossible or rapid setup and takedown is important. For longer distances (from 350m up to 5km) the TED Wireless System is a more suitable solution.
The WTN radio module is fully compatible with all existing Alge products that employ banana plugs or 25-pin connectors.
- Supports both impulse and data transmission so you can connect start gates, photocells, display boards, all wirelessly!
- Sends simple timing impulses as well as data (start or finish signals, etc)
- 2.4gHz band, 16 adjustable frequencies (“Team modes”)
- Max range approx 300m (based on unobstructed line-of-sight); your results may vary significantly based on local RF conditions
- Output power: 10-100mW (limit for EU operation 10mW)
- Compatible with most half-duplex devices using RS232 protocol
- Built-in protection against false data
- Supports up to 5 separate timing channels (“Start”, “Finish”, and 3 open channels)
- Runs on 3x standard AA batteries (alkaline or NiMh rechargeables)
- Rugged ABS construction
Examples of how the ALGE-TIMING WTN products include:
|WTN Connected to existing ALGE-TIMING Products without inbuilt radio modules:
In this example, the WTN unit has been used to connect both ALGE-TIMING startgate and PR1a photocell set with a TIMY3, which has an inbuilt radio module.
|ALGE-TIMING WTN-series products:
Where as this example for the WTN Training Set (available with a TIMY3 W or TIMY3 WP) shows the timing devices communicating with each other using the inbuilt radio modules (max range 100m from TIMY3).
|The WTN can be used to feed competition results and also communicate with displayboards:
In the above example, the WTN is connected to the TdC8001 timing computer to capture impulses and race results, whilst also communicating to a D-LINE displayboard, which is using a GAZW. GAZ Boards can also connect to the TdC8001 using this method also.
