Microwave Receiver

LRX-310B

LRX-310B is a small, lightweight, microwave receiver module with integral antenna. It outputs trigger pulses as it passes through the beam of an LTX-310 Lap Trigger transmitter. The interval between pulses is determined by the transmitter settings and thus by making an appropriate choice of settings and transmitter locations around the circuit, it is possible to identify which particular transmitter the receiver is passing.

The LRX-310B itself cannot distinguish between different transmitter settings. This task must be performed by software in the ECU to which LRX-310B is connected.

Application

  • Lap timing when used with compatible ECU and track-side transmitter.
