Zero Gun Test Steps for a Finish Lynx system

Courtesy Lynx System Developers, Inc., 1/15/2015

Typically, a starting gun (with the starting sensor) is placed flat on the finish line and fired. The timing system should capture the flash of the gun at zero seconds. During a meet, the test should be performed once a day on each of the finish lines that will be used that day.

Open Lynx
Load your camera and align it to the finishline
Place your gun on the finishline
Click Edit “Zero Gun Test”
An event opens and tells you what to do. (Capture)
Shoot the gun

Make sure the time and explosion of the gun start at 0.0. from the image you just captured.

If the gun explosion is not at 0.0 you have a problem.
