A World Leader in Photo-Finish Cameras & Fully Automatic Race Timing Systems, FinishLynx fully automatic timing systems support a variety of sports at every level of competition. We know that each sport has a unique set of challenges. That’s why we’ve created different solutions for every application. And these timing systems can be customized to meet any budget level.

What is a Fully Automatic Timing System?

Fully Automatic Timing (FAT) is a popular type of sports timing that captures digital race results that are accurate to at least 1/100th of a second  (0.01), but preferably 1/1000th of a second (0.001). Fully Automatic Timing systems require a start signal, running time, and capture device to be digitally synchronized to ensure accuracy. True FAT also requires the timing device be activated automatically by a start signal, rather than manually (e.g. as with a stopwatch). The finish time must also be captured electronically to remove any human error or delay. Due to such a high level of accuracy, Lynx technology can be used for a wide variety of sports, and there are packages available for application to any situation. An  example of a fully automatic timing system for track and field can be seen to the right.
