Dolphin Wireless Timing System
Dolphin is a proven wireless timing system with a fully integrated Hy-Tek Meet Management interface. Dolphin provides wireless,
synchronized, stopwatch-style timing for
swimming competitions. It significantly
reduces the amount of effort required to run a
meet and manage data. By synchronizing all
the stopwatches to the same start signal, the
system has improved accuracy compared to

Colorado Time Systems and Hy-Tek Sports
Software have partnered to provide you
with a fully integrated Hy-Tek user interface,
so you will not need to learn a new meet
“Hy-Tek is pleased to partner with
Colorado Time Systems, a leader
in providing timing and scoreboard
technology for swimming. We believe
the Dolphin wireless watch technology
will not only provide a significant savings
in meet administration, but just as
importantly, offer timing technology to a
whole new set of meet competitions.
Hy-Tek is excited about the opportunity
to participate in this project with CTS
and we look forward to serving our

Three Modes of Operation
Electronic start system
Connect the starter unit to any CTS electronic
start system. All watches will start timing with
the start system signal. Each watch stops
when the lane timer stops it. These times are
wirelessly transmitted and saved for immediate
access by Meet Manager. The starter unit is
used to reset the system before the next race.
Synchronised manual start
The official with the starter unit presses the
START/STOP key. All watches will start timing
from this signal. Each watch stops when the
lane timer stops it. These times are wirelessly
transmitted and saved for immediate access by
Meet Manager. The starter unit is used to reset
the backup timing system before the next race.
Wireless backup timing
This mode is used for collecting backup
times at major events, and is compliant with
all swimming ruling bodies’ (FINA, NCAA,
USS, NFHS, YMCA) requirements for backup
timing. Lane timers start and stop the watches
independently for a fully manual system.
These times are wirelessly transmitted and
saved for immediate access by Meet Manager
if needed. The starter unit is used to reset the
backup timing system before the next race.
Up to 10 split times can be recorded for each watch. The number of splits for each event is either set up manually in the Dolphin software or imported from the meet
management program. Split can times are displayed on the scoreboard.
Who can use it?
Everyone. Whether you use Dolphin in
competition or practice, Dolphin is an accurate,
wireless, effortless timing solution. Dolphin will
save you time and improve your accuracy. All
by simply connecting to your laptop.
