When we talk about the set-up of a timing point, we talk about it from the physical point of view. Before this physical setup, it is required to:
- Switch on the device.
- Connect the device to the internet.
- Configure the Classic Loop Box for the race.
- Select the configuration of the active chip for that timing point.
Once these steps have been completed, a timing point will be physically set up for the race:
- Lay the loop on the ground perpendicular to the running direction. Lay it in a rectangle with approximately 25-35 cm between the two sides of the cable.
- Connect the loop to the device (right side of the Classic Loop Box). The device will start the automatic calibration, it will take a few seconds and you will hear a few quick clicks.
- When the calibration is finished, the loop disconnected alert icon will disappear on the control panel and a green check will appear in its place
From this moment on, the Classic Loop Box device will start receiving readings on the dashboard with the chip number and the exact time they are received.
