Below are typical configurations used in timing points.
Mats connected in parallel MUST be touching each other as shown in the diagram, do not leave a gap between the mats when using this configuration.
Cabling back to the reader must be laid up the CENTER of the mats so that both cables exit the mat nearest to the reader.
Your mat should always be unrolled and sitting flat before plugging it into your reader.
You are not to move the mats into position via the cables, as this will void the warranty.
Mats need to be 1.2m apart when there are more than one line of mats to create the best possible field.
Mats may be centered on Finish Line or offset in front of the Finish Line depending on the desired relationship of the two systems and the surrounding environment.
You need to look after your mats and clean them post event.
