Photo Finish Camera OPTIc3

Our latest photo finish system OPTIc3 is the new technical leader on the market! In line scan mode, it possesses the highest frame rate available on the market. This turns the OPTIc3 into the perfect device for fast sports like motor sports. A 100 Hz 2-D full screen timing mode is ideally suited for special applications like rowing, swimming and further backup purposes. Easiest setup in 2-D mode! VoIP allows voice communication without headset with the starter.
Attention: delivery without lens and without gear head
The OPTIc3 standard model is without options. The OPTIc3-Pro has all options except transponder functionality and motor zoom license.

Alternatively you can supply the camera also with a 12V power supply as the PS12 or PS12A

This depends on the sport and can usually be found in the rulebook. In athletics, for example, the anemometer must be re-calibrated every 5 years (national, Switzerland only) and the photo finish every 4 years (international). In the case of alpine skiing the TD may demand a re-calibration if the A and B systems drift too far apart.
