GPS ATHLON SERIES

 

Its core is the new GPS system
developed by Starlane with technology
and calculation algorithms used in the most modern air force systems,
It is now a fundamental choice to manufacture an accurate and reliable product going beyond all the main limits known for GPS commercial systems.

 ATHON has been developed as a simple and practical solution. It can be installed on any vehicle, even without any electrical connection or external sensor.

 

1) GPS RECEIVER AND ANTENNA BUILT INTO THE INSTRUMENT:
the Athon shock-proof ABS body can accommodate the GPS receiver and the relative antenna. This makes it really handy and simple, not requiring the installation of any additional items on the vehicle.

2) YOU CAN SAY GOOD-BYE TO ALL UNPRACTICAL INFRARED TRANSMITTERS ARRANGED ON THE PIT WALL:
the use of the GPS system intended to detect the lap time will make ATHON completely autonomous, requiring no beacon transmitters, such as the infrared ones used by old-generation systems.
Everything is getting much simpler. It is no longer necessary to arrange the transmitter and to recharge the battery, which is extremely annoying and unpractical, with the risk of forgetting it on the wall or having it stolen.

3) MANAGEMENT OF THE FINISH LINE AND 3 INTERMEDIATES:
just press one key to set up the coordinates of 4 finish lines (main finish line + 3 optional intermediates) during the first lap. Whenever you cross a finish line or an intermediate, ATHON will indicate the relative drive-through time and store its value. You can therefore quickly evaluate your own performance even if you are driving along a part of the track far from the main straight stretch, which would be expensive and unpractical if you used any other type of chronometer.


4) INDICATION OF THE ACHIEVABLE IDEAL TIME:
by managing intermediates, ATHON can calculate the time a driver can ideally achieve for every single session. This function is obtained by adding the best sectorial times. This will help you understand the lap time you might have achieved if there had been no traffic in a specific point of the track or if you had done a lap on top of your absolute performance.


5) DOUBLE FUNCTION "BEST LAP" LED:
the "BEST LAP" LED will turn on if you have improved your previous lap and it will blink if the lap you have just done is the best of the session. This solution will supply the rider with all the information necessary for performance without any distraction.
If you have set up intermediate finish lines, the LED is also enabled whenever you cross an intermediate. This means that this instrument is extremely useful to highlight without any distraction whether you are  improving compared to the same intermediate time of the previous lap or whether you have just accomplished the best intermediate time of the session.

6) GPS SPEED MEASUREMENT:
the advantage of using a GPS system is also that you can measure the vehicle speed with the highest degree of accuracy without having to install any sensor on the vehicle. No user setup is required and, above all, any measurement is always accurate, not altered by the inclination of the vehicle or wheel skidding.

7) ENGINE SPEED INDICATOR WITH SETTABLE LED BAR AND SHIFT LIGHT:
ATHON is not only a chronometer and tachometer, but also an engine speed indicator. You can set the power-on engine speed of the LED bar, which will gradually turn on up to the shift engine speed set by the user and signalled by the 3 high-power blue LEDS of the Shift Light. You can also display the speed. The engine speed can be measured by arranging the inductive cable in the proximity of an ignition coil or by connecting the signal wire to the original speed indicator.


8) DOUBLE HOUR COUNTER FOR THE PERFECT PERIODICAL MAINTENANCE OF THE VEHICLE:
ATHON has also got two hour counters that can be separately reset for the periodical maintenance of the vehicle. Hour counters are activated to receive the tacho signal and the GPS speed signal. This solution can operate the hour counters even if you do not wish to connect the tacho signal
.

 

9) WIRELESS DATA DOWNLOAD BY MEANS OF THE BLUETOOTH:
ATHON GPS-R can integrate the Bluetooth communication module for wireless connection with the computer in order to download the data that will be analysed, filed and printed by means of the DigiRace-LE software unit supplied.

10) SUPPLIED WITH THE DIGIRACE-LE SOFTWARE:
the DigiRace-LE software supplied with ATHON GPS-R can file, analyse and print the data acquired and graphically represent the paths you have driven across with the relative acceleration and deceleration points for a lap-by-lap comparison.



11) 999-LAP MEMORY WITH AUTOMATIC MANAGEMENT OF 99 TEST SESSIONS:
ATHON GPS-R will automatically create a new session whenever you access the track. This means that you can analyse the times you have stored during the various sessions even at the end of the day without having to delete memory whenever you access the track. You can store the Date and Time of every single session as well as the total time, the intermediates, the maximum speed, the max. engine revolutions and the engine speed at the max. speed for every single lap.

12) STORAGE OF THE FINISH LINE COORDINATES OF THE TRACKS MOST USED:
you can store the coordinates acquired for the finish line of the tracks you are training on most frequently. You can file up to 16 tracks and easily call the finish line of the current track without having to reset it every time.

13) ATHON IS COMPLETE WITH A BACKLIT LARGE-SIZE GRAPHICAL DISPLAY:
this solution has provided for the development of a software unit that can analyse all stored data and set up all wished functions in an unequally user-friendly and immediate manner. The display is of a transflective type, which means maximum visibility also in the sunlight when backlighting is off.

14) DOUBLE SUPPLY:
supplied by a 12V vehicle battery or by 2 internal pen batteries of an AA type, it is really autonomous and independent upon any electrical connection. Moreover, ATHON is complete with powerful energy saving and self power-off functions the user can set up to make the best use of battery performance. It is supplied with a specific extension with eyelets for battery connection and with a connector on one side of the instrument for rapid disconnection.

15) COMPLETE WATER-PROOFNESS:
ATHON is waterproof and it can also be used in case of rain.
