Do you need a system for Fast CAT events but not for agility trials? Click Here!
Our new Fast CAT timing system can save you hundreds of dollars off the cost of an agility timer, and at the same time, offer several advantages versus the agility timer when timing Fast CAT.
If you have recently attended a dog agility trial, chances are one of our timing systems was in use. At the heart of the agility timing system is our Polaris timer console, specifically customized for the requirements of dog agility trials. Our
dog agility timing systems use multi-beam light curtains instead of the single-beam electric eye used for other applications. The light curtains are necessary to ensure reliable and accurate timing of dogs.
Rule-specific support for AKC, CKC, USDAA, NADAC, ASCA and AAC venues.
The timer provides features to support Standard, JWW, and FAST classes as well as gaming classes like Gamblers and Snooker.
Convenience of wireless operation – no connections between the timer and the light curtains. Even the connection to a spectator display and your sound system can be wireless (optional).
The timing console operates 50-60 hours from standard AA batteries. The light curtains run 70+ hours from AA batteries.
The light curtain photo-sensors ensure the leading part of the dog is reliabily and accurately detected – even with variations in dog jumping and running styles.
Through your sound system, the timer can sound tones/buzzers for games, speak "go" when the course is ready, and speak the table count with an accurate cadence.
The optional wireless handswitch can be used to control the table count (which the timer automatically speaks through your sound system) and can also
be used to manually start or stop the timer.
Large spectator displays (scoreboards) are available to show the contestant's running and final time.
The timer can provide a walk-through count down and show the count down on the optional spectator display. At expiration of the count down, a tone is sounded over the user's sound system. After the count down, a "ring clear" count up timer
can automatically start.
