MotoTally UHF RFID CheckStation

MotoTally UHF RFID CheckStation

This MotoTally CheckStation uses Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID technology and has a built in panel antenna. Typical transponder to antenna read range is from 5' to 30' depending on the transponder / antenna orientation and attenuation level selected. It can be used for almost all types of events and with several different transponder options. These CheckStations have an Ethernet communications interface, are powered via 'Power over Ethernet' (POE), and can be networked with the race computer and used at the finish line of hare scramble type events.

This is a UHF RFID reader that is compatible with MotoTally UHF transponders only. Transponders for this system come in a variety of formats, but the one recommended for most applications is a stick on "label" that comes on a roll. The transponders are VERY cost effective, especially compared to the legacy proprietary LF transponders ("credit card" and "cigar" style transponders). Aside from the low cost, the biggest benefit of this system is a more reliable read rate, especially with the newer fuel injected motorcycles and quads.

Applications
  • Hare Scramble
  • Cross Country
  • Gran Prix
  • Desert Scramble
  • Hare & Hound
Features
  • Superior read rates, especially with quads and EFI motorcycles
  • Integrated antenna - no bulky external antenna to lug around
  • Simple Hook Up - Power and Comms in a single Cat5 Ethernet cable!
  • Simple Operation - Doesn't even have an on/off switch
  • LED Status Indicators - Reader active and transponder read
  • Low Power Consumption

* Note: This system is considered "legacy" (still supported, but not recommended for new implementations)

This MotoTally CheckStation uses Low Frequency (LF) RFID technology. Typical transponder to antenna read range is from 3' to 10' depending on the transponder / antenna combination selected. It can be used for almost all types of events and with two different transponder options. These CheckStations are battery powered and can be connected directly to the race computer and used at the finish line of hare scramble type events. Long battery life of 15 plus hours means you can use it for an entire day of racing.

Applications
  • Hare Scramble
  • Cross Country
  • Gran Prix
  • Desert Scramble
  • Hare & Hound
Features
  • Rugged - Time tested technology puts up with years of abuse
  • Simple Hook Up - Plug in antenna and serial port, done!
  • Simple Operation - It has an On/Off switch
  • LED Status Indicators - Antenna connected and transponder read
  • Long Battery Life - 15 hours on one charge

MotoTally Hands-Free LF/UHF RFID CheckStation

The MotoTally Remote CheckStation has all of the features of the standard MotoTally LF or UHF CheckStation, but with the ability to operate independantly of a computer and the MotoTally Scoring Software running on a laptop. To replace the computer, a Windows Mobile Pocket PC (PPC) is used as a data logger. All you need to score a remote check is the Remote CheckStation and an antenna! No generators. No laptops. On top of that, the MotoTally Remote CheckStation optionally supports several of the Rider Displays.

Applications
  • AMA Restart Enduro
  • Qualifier Style Enduro
  • ISDT / ISDE / FIM Enduro
  • Hare & Hound
Features
  • Simple Hook Up - Plug in antenna and PPC, done!
  • Rider Displays - Optionally supports several displays for info in the sticks
  • LED Status Indicators
  • No computer or generator needed!
  • Long Battery Life - 15 hours on one charge

MotoTally Remote CheckStation Software

MotoTally Remote CheckStation Datalogger Software

MotoTally Remote CheckStations come with a pre-configured Windows Mobile Pocket PC (PPC) and the MotoTally CheckStation data logging software already installed. Sync the PPC with your race computer before the race, and the clock, check settings, and rider data are synced. Take the CheckStation out to the remote check and let it do it's thing. When the last rider is through, bring it back and sync it again. All of the tag reads are then imported into MotoTally with a few mouse clicks.

The MotoTally CheckStation software is easy to use. While the settings are automatically pre-configured in the pre-race sync, you can easily adjust any of the settings or adjust the clock in the field. The software gives you all kinds of information on the screen if you need or want it; time of day, an "electronic" flip card time, check number, key time, and all transponder reads are reviewable.

If that isn't enough, the software also supports several of the rider displays, which can be battery powered. In enduro mode, a display can act as an "electronic" flip card, and will show bike number and time recorded, just like you would manually write down on a scorecard. In the qualifier or FIM enduro mode, the display will normally show time of day, and when a transponder is read, it will show the bike number and time. This can be a great help to your backup sheet crew!
