There are a lot of RFID systems on the market and not all interface with FinishLynx. Before you purchase an RFID system to interface with FinishLynx, confirm that it does work with our system.
All customers integrating a Chip System will need the LapTime plug-in for FinishLynx. You can contact sales for a quote.
Some systems will interface with a serial connection while others will interface with an Ethernet connection. If your RFID system requires an Ethernet connection, then you will also need the Network COM Port (NCP) plug-in for FinishLynx. You can contact sales for a quote on the NCP plug-in. Once the LapTime plug-in is installed with FinishLynx, you will be able to go into the LapTime options and set up the communication protocol for your system.
Please read the manufacturer’s technical manual to ensure that you set up the communication protocol correctly for their reader.
