Cards

The SPORTident ActiveCard (SIAC) enables contactless timing, making it the ideal choice for trail running, mountain biking, orienteering sprint races, and other adventure sports. The ActiveCard registers the time and code number of an AIR+-compatible SPORTident station in a proximity range of up to 3 meters and at a maximum passing speed of 40 km/h. The successful punch is indicated by both optical and acoustic feedback for the athlete.

The ActiveCard is fully backwards-compatible with the SPORTident classic system: Direct punching works with all existing SPORTident stations. Card readout and record data format are the same as for classic cards, making the ActiveCard compatible with all existing software solutions. The ActiveCard stores up to 128 punches and registers a direct punch in less than the tenth of a second. By normal use the battery life time is approximately four years, after that the battery can be serviced by SPORTident. The SPORTident ActiveCard also includes a radio module which enables live data during the race, as well as radio readout of the card after the race.
