Student Lap Tracker. Orbiter Free Flow RFID School Walk A Thon

The Orbiter system allows students to run, not stand in line; and it allows teachers and coaches to teach and coach without the hassles of outdated record keeping methods. Orbiter is the only portable RFID system that sets-up immediately with no cables or parts to assemble. It’s the easiest to use because only Orbiter software allows teachers to trade tags between classes, or have a tag for each student.  Your choice.

Teachers track students’ laps automatically and get physical education results in real time from a tablet with the option to download to a computer later.

Orbiter provides great motivation for kids. They soon look forward to exercise and staying healthy. Students are motivated by the ‘magic’ beep as they pass our Spire RFID reader. 

There are no handheld devices that go missing, or photo capture delays.   Tag detection at 20 feet distance and at the speed of light.  Over 250 students may be detected per second.   This allows students to run free past the detector.

Excellent for training and conducting the mile run test without line ups.    Orbiter allows use of a “Start Tag” to make  your testing easy.  Plus, automatically captures lap counts and split times.   Using our unique “reprocessing” feature you can test groups with back to back tests using the same tags traded by roster number.   All this with just 4 key strokes.  

New for 2017 – multiple teachers may manage their own classes  with their own Tablet communicating to  one Orbiter!   Each Teacher sees their own class event though hundreds of kids from many classes pass the one Orbiter.  Orbiter is the only company with this innovation in the world today.   This functionality was requested by large schools with many physical education teachers.

Orbiter is economical since the Net Present Value of the system is similar to other systems.  Only one Orbiter is needed per school which also provides economy.

Just three actions to remember for success:  (1) Turn the Orbiter “On”, (2) know who you gave the tags to, (3) and make the Orbiter “Beep” with each pass of the student.  100% your run results are safe.  Software administration can be done after the fact.
