Race Management Software

Race times are sent to any computer at no extra cost to you. The output from the timer is through a SERIAL(COM) connection.


The SmartLine Timer produces consistent instant race results that may be sent to any computer. Use any of the Race Management Packages listed below or write your own program using the commands listed in the Command Manual. We recommend that you try the demo version of these packages before making your decision. Follow the links from the chart below to their web sites.

The SmartLine Timer can be set up to work with the simple DTX000 communication protocol so that you may use older versions of software. Please contact us if you need this option.

In order to use the DTX000 format in the race management software packages, you need to select the DTX000 mode in the timer and then selecting DTX000 in the race management software package setup menu. Once you have set the timer into DTX000 mode you do not need to set it again. The timer remembers it's settings even after the power is turned off and back on.
We need to instruct you on this procedure with special instructions.
