DerbyStick Timer

Scroll Down to Order a DerbyStick!

The DerbyStick is the lowest priced USB timer available.  The DerbyStick plugs into your computer's USB port and provides times and finish order for up to 4 lanes.  This is a perfect timer for groups using an LCD projector to really wow the audience.  Uses our standard start switch and 1/4-inch stop sensors.

The only thing needed to complete the system is a light source to illuminate the stop sensors.  We have a new product, the LightBridge that provides InfraRed light sources for each lane.  You can also use regular incandescent lighting (one "Soft White" 60W lamp for every 3-4 lanes).  You do not have to provide the measurements of your track for this timer.  The DerbyStick comes with a one year warranty.  The DerbyStick uses the same drivers for the USB drive as our Turbo Timer Built-in USB drivers.

Timer Module Features:
 
·        Supports up to 4 lanes
·        Works with any track regardless of lane spacing or track length
·        Times from 0 to 9.9999 seconds, with 0.0001 second resolution

Pricing: each system includes the DerbyStick, start switch w/ cable, one stop sensor per lane and CD including USB drivers & documentation


LightBridge

The LightBridgeTM provides consistent and reliable Infrared Lighting to the stop sensors used on DerbyStick, Turbo Lite, and legacy DTX000 products.   

Each lane is illuminated by two IR LEDs centered over the stop sensor that is mounted into the track surface below.   

LightBridge is powered by a 3.3V Wall Adapter.  No batteries to buy and replace.
