A low priced pinewood derby timer

Scroll Down to Order a Turbo Lite or its accessories!    

After 10 years of production we have phased out our DTX000 product line to make way for our new product Turbo Lite. The Turbo Lite is a lower priced alternative to the full Turbo timing system that has the same timing capabilities without the over-track display. The finish order and all times are available from the Timer Module or connect the unit to a PC to automate your race. Use your PC with an LCD projector to really wow the audience. The timer comes standard with a serial port interface and supports our optional built-in USB interface. This timer uses our standard start switch and 1/4-inch stop sensors. The only thing needed to complete the system is a regular incandescent light source at the finish line (one 60W lamp for every 2-3 lanes).  You do not have to provide the measurements of your track for this timer.

 

Timer Module Features:
 
·        Supports up to 8 lanes
·        Works with any track regardless of lane spacing or track length
·        Times from 0 to 9.9999 seconds, with 0.0001 second resolution
·        Standard 9-pin serial port interface
·        Optional built-in USB port
·        Compact hand-held or table-top design
·        Compatible with Grandprix Race Manager and DerbyMaster race software
 
Fully upgradeable:
 
Like all of our timers, the Turbo Lite is fully upgradeable – as your group grows or track changes you can expand your capabilities without losing the investment. Start with a single lane and grow the system as your budget allows. Example Upgrades:
·        Add built-in USB
·        Add DerbyTV
·        Add race management software
·        Add more stop sensors to time up to 8 lanes
·        Add the Turbo Bridge and Turbo Lane Modules to expand into the full Turbo System

Turbo Lite, uses 1/4" holes.   DT8000 customers who are switching to Turbo Lite would either need to devise a way to fit smaller sensors into their holes, drill another set of holes, or we could build their cables with 3/8" tubing.  Wouldn't be a problem to do so, just need to know ahead of time before we build the product.


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.
