SPORTident Station BS11-LA


  • As part of the SPORTident AIR+ product family, the SPORTident Base Station 11 Loop Antenna features contactless registration of time records.

  • The station works together with the SPORTident ActiveCard (SIAC), which records the stations’ signal when crossing a 6, 9 or 12 metres wide antenna loop, allowing for accurate timing even with wide finish lanes.

  • The BS11-LA station operates unattended once set up and switched on.

  • The station works with an unlimited number of SIACs simultaneously.

  • The station is configured, updated and recharged via USB.

  • The companion PC software SPORTident Config+ gives access to the full configuration of the station, including two different operating modes, allowing for flexible and advanced use cases.

  • The BS11-LA does not record passing SIACs. The time records are registered and stored on the SIACs only. However, the SIAC can send its records via radio to a SPORTident SRR (short range radio) dongle or GSM modem when passing a BS11-LA station.

  • The BS11-LA is easy to carry around and set up, as the foldable loop antenna and the letter-sized station are supplied in a practical case.

  • It is typically mounted at the side of the track, with the loop antenna laid out on the ground perpendicular to the track. The ground loop should always be covered with a mat or buried in the ground or snow.

  • The station is water-proof, robust and with an operating time of up to 90 hours on one battery charge.
