The Gen7 legacy swim timer is designed to work with your existing CTS timing components and display boards, allowing you to meet your current needs and reap the benefits of the powerful Gen7 user interface.  It is a direct replacement for any existing CTS Timing Console.  The hardware and software combination gives you the flexibility to run your meets your way.

What’s New:

  • Intuitive software interface
  • Flexible user interface options
  • Integrated 2.4GHz wireless to scoreboards
  • Facility network connectivity
  • Race finish safeguard
  • Rich diagnostics

The Gen7 legacy swim timer is compatible with both in- and on-deck systems up to 12 lanes and allows you to fully utilize your existing CTS swim timing equipment with ease and accuracy.

  • Intuitive software interface:  The Gen7 legacy timer features a modern Windows user interface and is touchscreen friendly.
  • Flexible user interface options:  A Windows laptop or tablet is the primary user interface, with Ethernet connectivity to the timer.  In- and on-deck facilities can place the timer at the timing table for a meet.  In-deck facilities have the option to place the timer at the timing table or in a secure office space and connect to the timing system via an office wallplate.
  • Rich diagnostics:  Integrated pre-meet diagnostic screen to check system set up and health, eliminating the need to set up a meet in the timer to run test races.  Diagnostics provide you with proactive equipment maintenance; allowing you to discover possible corroding connections throughout the timing system, and mitigate effects of corrosion until the component can be repaired or replaced.
  • Race finish safeguard:  All timing data is logged and saved on the Gen7 timer.  Any issues with the user interface (laptop or tablet) are recoverable.  The timer will continue running and will finish a race without the user interface
