After a few years of fund raising by our committee, we now have our own electronic Omega touch pads. A massive thank you to Geoff Yallop and Lesley Beevor for all of their work to get these.
The OMEGA OCP5 touch pad consists of a high grade stainless steel frame that supports the individual and interlinked non slip, nonabrasive resilient polyvinyl chloride slats. The reliability and durability of the touch pad, which has been designed for sustained heavy duty use is unaffected by hard water and chemical corrosion. The contact strips and the surface are adjusted in such manner that any point on the touch pad reacts to the same force, between two and three kilograms. It is highly sensitive to local impact but does not react to an overall change in surface pressure; thus eliminating false impulses due to waves.
The horizontal contact strips are fixed within the touch pad and in this way give a timing signal when they close due to an applied pressure. Ultra long life is guaranteed with the integration of high quality materials and leading edge technology, making this product the reference for Swimming timing equipment. Small repairs due to hard use can even be carried out by the client himself. This way, no touch pads need to be returned for repair. The OCP5 is available in four sizes that all feature the same top level of quality. To guarantee this, all components are carefully selected and thoroughly tested before assembly. A specially designed storage and transport trolley is available as a recommended option and can accommodate up to ten full height OCP5 touch pads. All these advanced features guarantee accurate results with no compromise.
