eTIMER is a software application that counts, times
and measure just about any athletic event
or drills. eTIMER is available for Windows
95, 98 and NT4.0/2000/XP.
eTIMER is unique in that either a tradition
keyboard/mouse or a wireless RF device that connects to an available printer
port can control it. The RF device provides
the user with up to 300 feet of hands free
control for starting and stopping eTIMER
There are five eTIMER options available.
Counter that can be programmed to count up to a
set number, with an audio alert
number reaches a specific count.
can also be programmed to reset
after a certain
number has been reached.
Example: Count the number of pitches that a pitcher
throws. Sound an alert when
the pitch counts
reaches a certain number.
Stop Watch that times HH:MM:SS:hh. An audio starting
gun wave can be selected as well as an option
to pause and restart the stop watch.
Example: Use in place of a starting gun and stop
watch for any athletic timing event.
Measures speed in MPH. This is a handy option to calculate the
speed in MPH between two points. The user
will supply the distance, then using the
transmitter start and stop the option to
measure the speed. This functions just like
a radar gun.
Example: Can be used to time a baseball/softball
pitcher in MPH. Calculate the
speed in auto
or horse racing events. Calculate
of a tennis serve.
Countdown with audio alert. Programmable time that counts down to zero
and issues an audio alert (whistle).
Example: Use in football to time setup and release
in quarterback drills.
Lap Counter that can be programmed to time (HH:MM:SS:hh) and calculate MPH of each lap. The user
enters the number of laps and distance in
feet, yards or miles. As each lap is completed
press the transmitter.
Example: Use to calculate time and speed (mph) of
each lap in a relay race.
The application starts by calculating the
CPU speed (initializing) for the measurement
of eTIMER'S options. The processor must be
rated at 800 MHZ or faster to ensure reliable timing. It is a good
practice to close all unnecessary
and processes prior to timing
to insure accuracy
Two options (Radar Gun and Lap Counter),
provide a Speedometer window
that can be
size to any display.
To start select an option by pressing or
click the ON button. This enables the wireless RF communication
and also enables the manual or keyboard/mouse
option should you prefer or need to use this
method. You should see the red light turn
to green on the start panel. Any time the
communication light is red it will not receive
a RF command. Wait until the communication
light turns to green before pressing the
transmitter to select an option.
