ATTENTION: The Summit Bridge Feature isn’t supported anymore by Zone4. You can use it at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that it will work for you. To use Summits Timers, we recommend using a Zone4 Serverbox. Contact us at email@example.com to rent or buy a Serverbox.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CLUBS ALSO USING A SERVERBOX
ONCE YOUR CLUB HAS USED A SUMMIT NUMBER WITH SUMMIT BRIDGE, THAT SUMMIT NUMBER WILL NOT WORK ON A SERVERBOX. if you record times on the summit bridge on summit #1, then summit #1 will never work on a serverbox again. no times will be sent to the serverbox. If your club is using summit bridge for some races and serverboxes for other races, you must reprogram your summits to different numbers (ctrl+6) when you switch between summit bridge and serverbox. serverboxes support summit device numbers up to 16.
Summit Bridge Usage
Downloading the latest version of legacy PC Software to a Windows 10 PC
Setting up the Summit Bridge
Syncing the Summit Time
All recorded times in the web-based timing software must be recorded in time-of-day. Click the Synch to PC Time button in the “summit systems timers” window to sync your summits to your computer’s current time.
After your summits are synced to the current time, click the “Start Sending Times to Zone4.ca” button and it will open and start the “Live Times” window.
The window will attempt to establish a connection with the internet.
Whenever times are received into your race file, they are immediately synced up to the internet.
Once the first time from a Summit is sent, that device will appear online in the list of devices that can be assigned to your races. On Summit Timers, the default is to take all times on a Summit and treat them equally. If needed you can choose to only accept times from a specific channel number on the summit.
See 3. Device Setup for further details on working with the new software and device setup.
