Dolphin Wireless Stopwatch System

swimming stopwatches

Dolphin is a proven wireless swimming stopwatch timing system with a fully integrated Hy-Tek Meet Management interface.

Dolphin provides wireless swimming stopwatch-style timing for swimming competitions. It significantly reduces the amount of effort required to run a meet and manage data. By transferring all timing data wirelessly, the system has improved accuracy compared to manual swimming stopwatches.

Three modes of operation:
Electronic Synchronized Start/Manual Stop
Connect the starter unit to any CTS electronic start system. All stopwatches will start timing with the start system signal. Each stopwatch stops when the lane timer stops it. These times are wirelessly transmitted and saved for immediate access by Meet Manager.
Manual Synchronized Start/Manual Stop
The official with the starter unit starts all stopwatches in conjunction with the whistle. Each stopwatch stops when the lane timer stops it.
Manual Start/Manual Stop
This mode is used for collecting backup times at major swimming events, and is compliant with all swimming ruling bodies’ (FINA, NCAA, USS, NFHS, YMCA) requirements for backup swim timing. Lane timers start and stop the stopwatches independently for a fully manual system.
In all three operation modes, finish times are wirelessly transmitted and recorded.
