New Product - the LightBridgeTM

The LightBridgeTM uses InfraRed light sources centered over each lane.  It replaces Incandescent light for DerbyStick, TurboLite, and DTX000 timer models * No Incandescent lighting to worry about 

  • Incandescent bulbs are a great source of InfraRed wavelengths, but are slowly being phased out of production
  • The LightBridge uses 2 IR light emitters centered over each lane for consistent and reliable illumination of the Stop Sensors
  • Available in 4, 6, and 8 lane configurations
  • Powered by a 3.3V Wall adapter (included) - no batteries to replace 

Note:  InfraRed Light is not visible to the human eye, but will show up in the viewfinder of your cell phone camera.
