SPORTident ActiveCard

Description

  • SPORTident ActiveCard (SIAC) can be used in two different identification modes:

    • Direct punching: registers a direct punch in less than the tenth of a second (works even if battery is empty)

    • Contactless punching: registers the time and code number of an AIR+ compatible SPORTident Station

  • SIAC completes the identification cycle in 60 ms and registers up to 128 intermediate time records

  • The optical and acoustical feedback signal, emitted by the SIAC, indicates the successful timekeeping and registration

  • Intermediate and finish times are recorded in a proximity range of several meters when passing the checkpoint with a maximum speed of 40 km/h

  • A built-in short-range radio enables the transmission of time records for the online data presentation

  • SIAC is energy-efficient and the card will work for several years before a battery change

  • SIAC is fully encapsulated and waterproofed

  • SIAC can be customized according to your preferences (you can choose a colour and a SIAC number)

SPORTident ActiveCard

Three ways to detect the need for battery change

  1. You can measure SIAC’s battery voltage by using an ordinary SPORTident station configured as "SIAC battery test"

  2. An integrated battery voltage measurement, with a beeping signal, will indicate the need for a battery change

  3. You can also check battery status with the SPORTident software Config+
