Start Flash


The start FLASH is an optical start device and is typically used in addition to an acoustic start device (e.g. start gun). It is most common in sports such as athletics and swimming.

The system is ideal for athletes who are deaf and as light is typically faster than sound it may well give the athlete the edge he/she needs.

The start FLASH is triggered via an external impulse device (e.g. start gun or push button). If it receives a second pulse within 5 seconds it will flash an additional five times to signal a false start.

The start FLASH has 80 high brightness LED's (Light Emitting Diode) integrated within it to ensure it can be seen clearly even in direct sunlight. The unit can be powered via 4x internal AA-batteries or direct from a timing device with low power.
