The Gen7 serial swim timing platform (U.S. patent numbers 10,137,353 & 11,192,016) provides you with long-lasting technology that will save you time and money.  The software interface puts intuitive control of all levels of competition at your fingertips.  This software combined with the distributed intelligence of our proprietary serial bus communication system give you the flexibility to run your swim meets your way.


What’s New:


  • Intuitive software interface:  The Gen7 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 connectivity to the timer via Ethernet.  The Gen 7 timer can be placed at the timing table for a meet, or left in a secure office space and connect to the timing system via an office wallplate.
  • Accurate, easy, and efficient pre-meet setup:  Color coded and keyed cable connections, volunteer friendly, recognition of saved course configurations, quick confirmation that all equipment is in the correct location and plugged in.
  • Simple, robust bulkhead connectivity:  Gen7 sets a remarkable new standard for connecting your bulkhead to the timing system.  The wet-pluggable floor plates for both pool side and the bulkhead mean you no longer need to attempt the challenging chore of keeping bulkhead connections dry and corrosion free.
  • 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.
  • Advanced diagnostics:  The advanced diagnostic features of the Gen7 timer save you time and money be allowing you to be proactive with equipment maintenance.  The system will alert you if components are connected in the wrong place or become disconnected, including bulkheads, start system, touchpads, pushbuttons, relay judging platforms, speedlights, and speakers.  Integrated pre-meet diagnostic screen allows you to check the system set up and health, eliminating the need to set up a meet in the timer to run test races.  Proactive equipment maintenance lets you discover possible corroding connections throughout the timing system, and mitigate effects of corrosion until the component can be repaired or replaced.



Connect hubs allow you the flexibility to design the best location(s) to connect your timer, start system, deck clocks, portable scoreboards, and bulkheads.  Gen7 connect hubs feature titanium connections and are wet-pluggable, purging the water out of the hub while making a superior connection.
