Progress with the Alien Chip Reader - Stay Tuned!
Post date: May 31, 2013 11:03:46 PM
CrossMgr is one step closer to being live with an Alien chip reader!
JChip and Impinj readers have been used for dozens of races, and I look forward to reporting on successful races done with Alien.
The Alien reader connects to CrossMgr with the CrossMgrAlien reader (available in the Files section). CrossMgrAlien manages all the reader communication and configuration, including optimizing its parameters.
Older Alien readers are often available on eBay for a few hundred dollars. With some ingenuity, you can put a chip timing system together yourself for under $2000. Chip timing at your club races? Why not?

See how it was done a Midweek (a local club here in Toronto) with the Impinj reader.
