Start signals are required to trigger the timing circuitry in timer-enabled TAG Heuer by Lynx cameras. It is the point of reference used to time-index the TAG Heuer by Lynx images and ultimately allows race results to be produced.
- Wired Starts A start signal is considered a wired start when it is received by TAG Heuer by Lynx via the Start port in the Connection Box. It can be produced by the sound of a gun, an electronic start system or a tape switch, for example. See Wired Starts for details.
- Wireless Starts
Devices like the HL615 Wireless Impulse System can be used for wireless starts via the connection box. See Wired Starts for details.
- Manual Starts Instead of responding to an automatic start signal, the timing component of the system can be manually started. See Manual Starts for details.
- Image Starts TAG Heuer by Lynx can generate a start signal from a captured image. See Image Starts for details.
- Photo Eye Starts With the Automatic Capture Mode (ACM) Plug-in, TAG Heuer by Lynx can generate a start signal from an internal photo eye break. See Photo Eye Starts for details.
- Time of Day Starts This function allows to create a start with a defined time of day (TOD). See Time of Day Starts for details.
- None All TAG Heuer by Lynx images that do not have an associated start signal will be time-indexed with time of day as a reference.
TAG Heuer by Lynx offers additional features to help with start signals. See Additional Start Signal Features for details about:
- Start Source Indicator
- Synchronize Time of Day
