Linkgate Radio System



Product Files

Completely innovative in concept, the LinkGate radio transmission system is a state-of–the-art device for wireless transmission of timing signals. The system consists of a very small Encoder (for the transmission of impulses) which can be connected to any gate, photocell or device with a normally open contact, and a Decoder (receiving device).

The two large buttons on EncRadio can be pressed even with ski gloves on, which allows the user to enter things like the competitor number. The system will then transmit to this to the receiving timer not along with the time pulse.

LinkGate can also be used in conunction with the Racetime2 and REI2 stopwatches and allows for remote control of both the MicroTAB and MicroGRAPH displayboards.

Thanks to our technological and commercial partnership with Lynx System Developers  Inc. the LinkGate can be used with the FinishLynx photofinish system. To meet the various requirements of the world of timing, Microgate has created three families of LinkGate products, all of which have an embedded radio module:

  • LinkGate DecRadio and EncRadio (multi-frequency) in the 10 or 500 mW versions. A range of up to 9 km (in the 500 Mw version) guarantees it can be used across different sporting disciplines. The system also has the ability co change the radio frequency on which it operates. External radios can also be connected on request.
  • DecRadio SF and EncRadio SF (single frequency) in the 10 or 500 mW versions. A range of up to 9 km (in the 500 Mw version) again allowing for a wide range of use. The radio frequency used for operation cannot be varied. EncRadio SF is also installed in the Polifemo-Radio SF photocells.
  • DecRadio Light only in the 10 mW version. With a range of about 400 metres, it is ideal for training in team sports, athletics, etc. The EncRadio-Light transmitter is embedded only in the Polifemo-Radio-Light photocells.
