The RFID Race Timing System has its origins back in 1996 when two pioneering West Australians developed a transponder timing system for their local triathlon club. The device was so successful that another larger system was commissioned by Triathlon Western Australia in 1996. In 2001, the timing system (known then as the Coyote Timing System) was updated to a newer system by a Triathlon WA committee member (Andrew Peterson) as a project over the winter months. The system was stripped down and rebuilt using the latest Palm handheld computers. The TIRIS components were all housed in a rugged Pelican case with an internal battery supply, voltmeter, antenna cable socket and Palm hotsync cradle. Improvements included up-scaling to a dual antenna system, utilising industry standard Ethernet, and developing specialised rubber mats optimised for maximum read rates. The RFID Race Timing System was subsequently used to time just about every multi-sport race in Western Australia as well as numerous swimming races including the Multiplex Rottnest Channel Swim which boasted a field size of over 2000 swimmers. By 2004, the RFID Race Timing System was being used to time major triathlons around the country including the Australian Triathlon Championships. Even a first of its kind antenna was developed for use in canoeing races and was used for the first time in 2005 to time the Avon Descent. In the same year, Accuchip Timing became our exclusive distributor for North and South America.
