2022 products news


We have developed a new special firmware for the WINP Transmitter which allows us the possibility to use the WINP as a repeater to echo the radio transmission from either a WIRC photocell or WISG start gate. The WINP can be positioned in a more convenient location to receive the WIRC/WISG impulse and repeat to the TBox

WISG Start-Gate

Smart and compact, the automatic Wireless Start-Gate (WISG) is completing our wireless line of products. 

Needing to absorb significant shock and cope with low temperatures whilst integrating precise components and engineering the WISG has demanded significant time investment in the design process.

RCID self identification box

The competitor ID remote control RCID automates your training timing requirements by allowing competitors to self-identify themselves to our TBox and iOS app before they leave the start.

MLED with wireless control

Just released in March 2021, this MLED model comes with an embedded radio receiver module. Initially designed to work with our TBox-Radio model 41 and Smart-Chrono IOS app, it opens the door to a wide range of new possibilities.

This module share the same network as our WIRC photocells and receives its data from a TBox-Radio which is located ideally less than 100 meters away with a direct line of sight (A few hundred meters can be reached depending of environmental conditions and devices location).

We propose a standard 96x16cm display “MLED-3R” composed with 1 MLED-Radio (Master) and 2 regular MLED modules. Of course larger display can be assembled adding extra regular MLED modules.

Please contact your representative for more details about applications and possibilities.
