Due to the integrated transmission system, which has a range of 150 metres, the photocells are highly reliable. Redundant radio transmission ensures that the data acquired is transmitted to the timer with the maximum precision (±0.4 thousandths of a second) even if the signal is disturbed. The Witty timer remotely recognizes the photocell ID number, so the user can easily set the signal type on the photocell: start, stop, and intermediate times.
It is also possible to use the Witty System with dual photocells, i.e. one on top of the other, so that only the simultaneous interruption of both photocells generates a signal. This system ensures that the photocells are interrupted by the chest and not by the athlete’s leading arm. It is also possible to add to Witty an unlimited number of photocells to allow multiple intermediate times.
WITTY MANAGER SOFTWARE
Witty Manager is a PC software for Microsoft Windows (XP Sp3, Vista, Win7, Win8) for managing the data collected with the Witty System, displaying rankings, graphs, histories, etc.
The main functions are:
• managing Athletes’ Personal Data including pictures and divided into groups of categories
• managing the Start Lists
• creating Customised Test definitions
• downloading data from Witty and displaying Results in highly configurable tables and graphs
• updating the Witty and photocell firmware
The Witty System can be used in combination with the Optojump Next system- the photocells can be used to give an external start and stop impulse to the Optojump Next modular system as well as recording intermediate times during sprint tests. Just set up the photocells and connect the Witty timer to the Optojump software- the photocells will transmit directly to the software. The Witty Timer should be using the 1.14.32 firmware and Optojump Next software version 1.8.
