The THETAmetrix Timergate offers a highly accurate and simple-to-use timing system. It comprises a minimum of 2 timing gates (‘light-gates’) which use light beams which when broken start and stop the timing. The Timergate system connects to your PC via USB, which also powers the system. The user-friendly PC software stores the individuals names together with the recorded achieved timings. This prevents the need to read and record stop-watch data. The data can be stored in a MS Excel compatible format.
Up to 2 additional slave ‘light-gates’ can be used to provide a multitude of flexible timing solutions.
Timing Gates (Speed Gates) provide more accurate timing than stop watches and add variety and challenge to a training session. They allow you to measure an improvement of a few percent in an athlete's speed - important information for a top athlete!
