What is Freelap?
Freelap is an electronic timing system that provides immediate feedback during training sessions.
How does Freelap work?
Freelap uses receivers (stopwatches and motocross timers) that sense the magnetic field that is emitted by transmitters. The receivers are automatically triggered and record the time when the receiver passes a transmitter.
What are the primary benefits of Freelap?
Freelap is extremely small and portable, easy to set up, and relatively low cost compared to other timing systems.
What types of sports and activities can Freelap be used?
Freelap is used to time a wide variety of activities including sprints, hurdles, horizontal jumps, football and other field sports, BMX, downhill mountain biking, swimming, and downhill skiing.
How accurate is the Freelap Timing System?
The Freelap timing system has a accuracy of 2/100 seconds which is similar to the accuracy of single beam photocell timing systems for running events.
What is the minimum spacing between transmitters?
The stopwatch has a SAFE time of 0.78 seconds, meaning the stopwatch can time splits as short as 0.78 seconds. This SAFE time is sufficient to measure 10 meter splits for elite sprinters.
What is the purpose of the Freelap Sprint Belt?
The sprint belt increases the timing accuracy by attaching the watch to a fixed location on the body.
Can multiple Tx Junior Pro Transmitters be used to measure splits?
Yes, splits can be measured using multiple transmitters. For example, it is possible to divide an 80 meter fly-in/fly-out sprint into four 20 meter zones using five Tx Junior Pro Transmitters.
What type of battery does Freelap use?
The stopwatch uses a commonly available CR2032 lithium battery. The Tx Junior Pro transmitter uses 2 AA batteries and are user replaceable. The Tx Touch Pro transmitter uses a CR2032 lithium battery that is rated for 15,000 starts. The Mx Motocross timer is rechargeable via USB.
