RFID Race Timing has a range of accessories that become invaluable to the pro and small timer alike. Whether it is expanding your current ULTRA 4 to the bigger ULTRA 8 unit, adding side antennas to complement your existing mats or even looking to encode your own disposable tags we have the products and experience to set you up.

Tag Capture


The ULTRAMATS are leaders in RFID timing system mats. They are manufactured from anti-fatigue rubber, are light and easy to deploy onto the race track. Soft and low profile in nature they are very “bike friendly” at high speed with proven performances at large events around the world. Each mat is 1 metre long and is run on a single port, so timing points of up to 8 m can be built with a single ULTRA 8 unit.


ULTRA Side antennas

Our ULTRA side antenna system is the latest innovation, and is particularly useful in timing events such as canoeing or skiing where mats are not practical.  The antenna are mounted on stands either side of a timing point and capture the competitors as they pass between. Being ultra light and transportable, they are ideal for split timing points or as a backup line behind the finish. As they require only 2 ports to operate they are a perfect match for an ULTRA 4, which can essentially run two lines.


Tag Encoding

Thing Magic

The Thing Magic is a small hand held encoder/reader that is indispensable to any timing outfit. It not only has the ability to read UHF tags but to encode as well. It is the perfect tool to have on standby as a timer to check the activity of a tag or code a new chip at the last minute. It plugs into a PC via USB and will manually code chips to a text file; perfect for use in race data management.


Zebra RFID tag printer and encoder

The choice of using disposable tags with the ULTRA system has many timers seizing the opportunity to purchase generic tags to code and print  in-house, saving themselves many thousands of dollars. The Zebra RFID tag printer and encoder is just the machine for the job. With just a simple set up, large print and encoding runs can be quickly and cost effectively managed. Our machines have paid for themselves many times over, and are always perfect for that last minute increase in tag numbers.
