With the FarmTek Wireless Scoreboard Interface Eliminate the long cable that runs from the timer in the announcer's booth out to the scoreboard .

Do you need to average the time of two manual times for your roping event? This can be done by adding one or two of our wireless hand switches. With one hand-switch, one judge presses the start/stop button on the Polaris timer and the second judge uses the hand-switch. With two hand-switc
