Rental Karting

The MYLAPS Kart Timing System for rental karting, previously the TranX140 Sytem, provides you with a simple, accurate and reliable timing solution for recreational karting.

Timing Setup

Timing races on a rental karting track, whether it’s a small event or a major, is a challenging task. You only want the best equipment with the highest read-rates and the best accuracy. MYLAPS system are the best in the market for the job, check-out the setup and add services to give your participants the best experience possible.

All X2 components are connected to the X2 server. This center piece is the connection to the X2 Cloud and controls the entire system. The X2 Utility can be used to control the X2 server. The server has a built-in practice mode that allows automatic uploads of practice results to mylaps.com.

X2 Transponders go with the X2 System. The X2 Transponder comes in the X2 Racer Pack, including everything racers need to get started.

The BaseLink sends out radio frequency signals, which are picked up by the X2 RaceLink antennas mounted on each vehicle. The BaseLink is installed at the start/finish line, on a position with a maximum line of sight, for instance on top of a finish arch. This will ensure an optimized wireless connection with the RaceLink installed at the vehicles. The BaseLink connects to the LoopBox, which also powers the BaseLink. The Ethernet port connection to the LoopBox ensures a high-quality signal.

Multi BaseLink setups

With a Multi BaseLink setup, you can cover the complete track, no matter what size, height difference, and terrain. Several X2 BaseLinks can be linked together and controlled by race control. Depending on the layout, environment, and location the number of X2 BaseLinks required may vary.

  • Full GPS tracking coverage
  • Live results updates at the complete track

X2 Multi BaseLink and SDK 4.0

With the new X2 Server Firmware 4.0 and SDK 4.0 it is  also possible to create a GPS tracking feed in your own, custom-built software.

Optimize your race experience with real-time results! Get the most out of your race event by broadcasting live race results to your fans and followers. With the new Speedhive Live Timing Web you’re fully equipped for your upcoming races.

Via the X2 RaceLink add-on, racers will be able to receive 2-way communication into their vehicles. RaceLink works with MYLAPS X2 Direct Power Transponders. Live race data will be displayed on an onboard display. X2 Link offers additional features and is not required to do timekeeping only. However, we do encourage tracks and series to offer X2 Link as it adds to the racing experience of racers.

Orbits 5 is exclusively developed for X2 and optimized for timekeeping at all levels, from basic to semi-professional timekeeping.

Detection loops are embedded in the track’s surface at the start and finish line and at intermediate timing points along the track. A detection loop works as the system’s antenna. It picks up signals from the transponders and passes them through to the decoder.

The decoder determines the exact time at which each transponder passes the detection loops. The decoder sends this data to the server.

Kart Timing System Components

The MYLAPS Kart Timing System for recreational and rental karting includes hardware and software components, providing you with a complete solution for simple, accurate and reliable timekeeping. In addition to these standard system components, you can extend your system with the MYLAPS modular add-ons. For further information regarding the add-ons, please contact your MYLAPS reseller.

 

1. MYLAPS Fixed Power Transponder

The transponder, installed on each kart, sends a unique signal to the detection loop, which is used to:

  • Identify the driver
  • Record the exact time at which the kart passed the detection loop

 

2. MYLAPS Detection Loop 

Works as the system antenna to receive all transponder signals.
The detection loop is embedded at the finish line and all other timing points installed at the track.

 

3. MYLAPS Kart Server/Decoder

Attached to the detection loop, it decodes the transponder signal into the driver’s ID and the exact time that the driver crossed the finish line.

 

4. Timing Software

Currently MYLAPS doesn’t offer a software package. However, several great 3rd party software applications are available.
