If you have been issued live timing equipment, you are responsible for its financial well-being. This implies that if the equipment sustains any damage while under your care, you must bear the cost of purchasing a replacement.

Now, let's discuss how to properly handle the equipment. The live timing equipment consists of two main components:

  1. The RFID Electronics Hub: This component is typically a large black box housing electronic modules and cables inside.


  1. The RFID Antenna kit comprises a single antenna box containing two internal RFID antennas, along with mounting brackets and RFID cables.

While the antennas and cables are weatherproof, it's important to note that the Electronics Hub is not.

Therefore, you should refrain from spraying water on the Electronics Hub while watering your track. Additionally, avoid leaving it outside for more than a day. In case of inclement weather, it's advisable to cover the hub with a trash bag or use other means to prevent water from reaching the sensitive electronics.

Think of the RFID Electronics Hub as you would think of your television. While you might take it outside for a special occasion, you wouldn't leave it out in the rain.

Furthermore, race tracks can accumulate dust, and the electronics may also be affected. It is your responsibility to periodically clean the Electronics Hub, typically using compressed air.

During the racing season, it's recommended to power on your Electronics Hub at least once a week. This allows it to synchronize its local server with the cloud database.
