The battery voltage of the punched SIAC is measured and shown on the station’s service display.

An acoustic signal ‘normal beep’ indicates that the battery is OK.

For voltages below 2.72 Volts, the station will show WARN (warning) and emit a warning signal – several beeps at higher frequency. In this case the battery is close to the end of life, but should easily last for the current event, unless a lot of data is being collected from the chip for live timing.

In case of FAIL (failure) for voltages below 2.44 Volts, there is no feedback signal. In this case, the battery voltage is below the critical level and the SIAC cannot be used for contactless punching. Battery service is needed.

It is recommended to conduct the test before every event. SIAC Battery Test stations should therefore be placed in the event centre, so that athletes can use them early before the start. The station’s battery voltage evaluation software considers the temperature dependency of the battery voltage. Voltages measured are stored in the station’s backup memory.

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.

By functionality the station BSF9 is fully equivalent to the BSF8. It can be configured in all operating modes. It supports classic punching and contactless AIR+ mode.

Key features
