CxUnit

MULTIPURPOSE TRANSMITTER SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR SKI

Versatile, CxUnit transmitter can be quickly set as START, LAP or FINISH transmitter. Thus, it lets you get both your LAP times and your SPLIT times.
This transmitter, specially designed for ski, offers 2 detection modes:
• Tx mode: This is the magnetic field detection mode. The transmitter emits a permanent magnetic field automatically detected by your FxChip when it passes by. With a detection field of 6.5 meters, CxUnit offers a wide detection zone. It emits permanently and has a 24 hours battery life. This mode is recommended for disciplines in which several skiers are skiing at the same time (ex: ski cross)
• Cx mode: This is the infrared photocell detection mode. When the athlete cuts the infrared beam, CxUnit emits a magnetic signal instantly transmitted to the FxChip’s timer. Thanks to its beam it offers a high accuracy and permits a detection field of up to 6.5 meters. Cx mode has an autonomy of 60h. This detection mode is recommended for disciplines in which skiers are skiing one by one (ex: alpine ski).
The reflector, the support (brush grip compatible) and a power supply with battery are included.
CxUnit transmitter is used with the CxFlag (Antenna flag) which permits you to obtain a wide detection zone.
The transmitter adapts to all fields and situations. Timing data is transmitted without risk of interference or loss of signal. CxUnit can be used with other Freelap® transmitters. It is particularly robust, resistant to water and extreme temperatures.

CHOOSE YOUR DETECTION MODE :
This transmitter, specially designed for skiing, offers 2 detection modes:
Tx mode (detection by permanent magnetic field triggered by the chip): Your CxUnit transmits permanently, and has a battery life of 24 hours. The accuracy of this mode is +/- 0.02s. Tx mode is recommended for disciplines in which several skiers are skiing at the same time (e.g. : ski cross, boardercross ..)
Cx mode (detection by magnetic field triggered when the skier crosses the infrared beam): Thanks to its beam, the Cx mode offers a higher precision than the Tx mode: +/- 0.001s. It has a battery life of 60h. Cx mode is recommended for disciplines in which only one skier is skiing at a time (e.g. : alpine ski).

PLACE YOUR TRANSMITTERS ON YOUR TRACK :
> PLACE THE CXUNIT :
Fix the CxUnit on its “Brushgrip” support (not included) and plant it on the ground:
– on the side of the track at a maximum distance of 6.5m from where the skier will pass.
– place the camera lens photocell on the finish line (or the intermediate line).

> PLACE THE CXFLAG :
– Connect your CxFlag to your CxUnit. To do this, place your CxFlag next to your CxUnit. The CxFlag antenna must be attached to 2 standard slalom poles. Plant 2 slalom poles in the snow, just after your CxUnit, positioned in the direction of the race. Then, attached your flag by passing the pegs into the notches at each end of your flag. The CxFlag should be positioned in the direction of the track, and a few centimeters above the snow.
– Connect the flag to the transmitter by connecting the CxFlag cable provided for this purpose to the Tx connector of your CxUnit. The CxFlag has no button, it works as soon as it is connected to the CxUnit.

> FOR CX MODE :
– Fix the reflector on its “Brushgrip” support and plant it in the snow:
– right in front of the photocell of your CxUnit
– at a maximum distance of 6.5 meters.
– If the device is not aligned with the reflector, a continuous beep is emitted. A white light at the back of the reflector indicates the proper alignment. Use the handle to make the alignment (2 axis adjustments can be made: up / down and left / right)

TURN ON AND SET YOUR CXUNIT :
– To turn on the transmitter simply press the central “ON/OFF” button for 1 second.
– Once the transmitter is on, press the central button again to select the desired code (START/LAP/FINISH). Each press of the central button switches you to the next code. The LED of the selected code flashes.
– Press the “Set” button to select the desired detection mode (Tx = permanent magnetic field triggered by the transponder OR Cx = magnetic field triggered when the athlete crosses the infrared beam). Each press of the “Set” button switches you to the next detection mode. The LED of the selected detection mode flashes.

ASSOCIATE CXUNIT AND CXFLAG WITH OTHER FREELAP® TRANSMITTERS :
To make Freelap® system work, you must have a transmitter set with the code “FINISH” on your track. The CxUnit is a versatile transmitter, so you can use several CxUnit on your track (set as START, LAP or FINISH transmitter). You can also use it in combination with other Freelap® transmitters (e.g.: you can use the Tx Gate Pro transmitter as a START transmitter). CxUnit must be at least 20m apart (between them, or with other transmitters). /! \ Your FxChip has a temporary memory of 10 LAPs. It means that your track must contain a maximum of 11 transmitters.
