|Automatic starting gate reacting on a start signal. Pneumatic circuitery using a bottle of
nitrogen (6 athmospheres). Notes: Bottle not included.
The STARTING GATE has been designed and developed by SWISS TIMING in collaboration
with the UCI (International Cycling Union).
The system is used by SWISS TIMING, and is homologated by the UCI for national and international
competitions. It is used on all cycling events using velodrome halls and on cycling tracks such as Individual
and Team Pursuit, 500 meters Time Trial, 1Km Time Trial and Team Sprint.
The STARTING GATE may be used as a stand-alone training unit, where a pushbutton
manually triggers the opening and closing of the actuators. When used in a pair, it is linked
to the TRACKER pursuit clocks with a dedicated controller, providing a fully automated start
sequence, and a perfect synchronisation of the opening of both gates.
