Time in turn is the measure of an athletes time during a 180 degree reversal, around a gate.
To effect a time in turn test the following ,must be understood
- The gate is set up in a normal fashion, using a reflector. The gate and reflector are perpendicular to the direction of travel.
- The athlete must FIRST break the Laser beam, then reverse the turn and return to complete the 180 degree reversal on the OPPOSITE side of the timing gate.
- The Ultrasonic sensor will detect the athlete and predict the time at virtaul centre point of the 60 degree cone of ultrasonic beam.
- SYNCRO will deliver the time between (2) and (3) events as the time in turn.
