The Alge TDC8001 printing timer is the culmination of three decades' of experience in the field of sports timing. The timer is extremely robust, flexible, and easy-to-use desktop system which offers industry-leading features in a compact and weatherproof form.

The unit comes complete with a number of different software packages designed for different sports and applications.

  • Extremely accurate 1/10,000 timebase based on Alge's temperature-compensated quartz crystal
  • Intuitive, menu-driven design makes it easy to learn to use this powerful device
  • Multiple highly legible, high-contrast liquid crystal displays delivering multiple font sizes & styles
  • Weatherproof keyboard which features large buttons can be used even when weating gloves
  • Outputs RS-232 communication protocol
  • Supports scoreboard-output
  • Built-in speech amplifier circuit
  • Can simultaneously drive up to 4 independent races, each using the same bib number ranges
  • Onboard 10-channel capability, with expandability up to 19 channels
  • Supports bib numbers up to 9999
  • Huge memory -- up to 9999 splits for each of the 4 race events (39,996 total splits)
  • Instant-save feature automatically saves every split so times cannot be lost
  • Integrated, P5-based thermal printer: continue timing while printing results, printer buffer remains active so you don`t lose data while changing paper
