Do you need a timing system for Fast CAT events but not for agility trials? Our new Fast CAT timing system can save you hundreds of dollars off the cost of an agility timer, and at the same time, offer several advantages versus the agility timer when timing Fast CAT.

The unique light curtain design uses a single point light source (the photo-transmitter) which sends a beam of light that spreads out and is picked up by the two foot vertical extent of the receiving light curtain. This design increases the beam span of the curtain and reduces its cost. However, it does require that the single point light source be placed beyond the width of the track for proper operation as illustrated below. For more information, take a look at the Fast CAT User's Manual.
