The SPORTident BSF9 is the latest addition in the series of SPORTident stations. It features a completely new housing while being compatible in size to the BSx8 form factor.
The new housing is extremely stable and robust. It fits into the mounting plate so far offered for the BSx8. In addition, there are four mounting holes. This enables a direct mounting of the station for permanent and semi-permanent fixed control stations as well as the usage of fixings for anti-theft purposes.
Stations ground plate is mounted by using four screws. The use of a silicon like sealant becomes obsolete. In addition, the hole is no longer continuous, which eliminates a sealing point. This is not only more sustainable and environmentally friendly but also makes it easier to service the station in case of needs. The typical service case is stations battery exchange after some years of operation.
Station BSF9 always comes with status/service display on top. Readability of the LCD is improved by using a new background contrast colour. Other improvements are the LED’s for optical feedback signals. The LED’s are now placed round about the punching hole and cannot be covered by athlete’s hand.
