TX GATE PRO

Tx Gate Pro

START GATE SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR SKI STARTS.

Tx Gate Pro transmitter is a start gate specially designed for ski starts. Very easy to use, it is attached to a wooden post (not included) on the start line. When the skier crosses the gate (at the moment when his shins move the gate’s rod of 10° according to the FIS standard), Tx Gate Pro emits a signal that triggers the start of the FxChip’s timer, automatically and instantly.
The fiberglass rod automatically returns to the initial position after each start. The gate is robust, resistant to water, and extreme temperatures. Convenient and reliable, Tx Gate Pro start transmitter offers a higher degree of accuracy in triggering timing.

PLACE YOUR TX GATE PRO AND TAKE THE START :
> PLACE YOUR TRANSMITTER:
– Plant a wooden stake ideally 4x4cm (not supplied) at the start area.
– Attach your Tx Gate Pro to your stake using the Velcro straps on your transmitter. The stick should be placed at shins height (the snow-to-stick distance should be between 35 and 50cm), parallel to the ground. The face of the case of your transmitter must be turned towards the track.

> TURN ON YOUR TRANSMITTER: Tx Gate Pro has no button. It turns on automatically, in a fraction of a second, when the skier takes the start (when the stick is moved by the skier). It turns off automatically after each start.

> TAKE THE START :
– Put yourself in starting position, both shins just in front of the stick.
– Start by crossing the gate (pushing the stick with your shins). The Tx Gate Pro emits a signal that triggers instantly the start of the FxChip. It will also make a sound that confirms that the gate has been triggered.
– The fiberglass stick automatically returns to its initial position after each start.

ASSOCIATE IT WITH OTHER FREELAP® TRANSMITTERS :
– To make Freelap® system work, you must have a transmitter set with the code “FINISH” on your track.
– The Tx Gate Pro is a start transmitter. You must also have at least one finish transmitter on your course (e.g.: Tx Track Pro transmitter set with the code “FINISH”).
You can also use it in combination with other Freelap® transmitters (e.g.: Tx Track Pro transmitter set with the code “LAP”). /! \ Your FxChip has a temporary memory of 10 LAPs. It means that your track must contain a maximum of 11 transmitters.
– The Tx Gate Pro must be placed at a minimum of 0.7 second from any other transmitter.
