IPICO Sports Announces Bib Tag Solution


Company launches Dual Frequency Bib Tag at the first IPICO Sports North American User Group Meeting

Peoria, Illinois, USA — IPICO Sports announced its much anticipated Dual Frequency (DF) Bib Tag solution at the IPICO Sports North American User Group Meeting held in Houston, Texas this week. The IPICO Sports DF Bib Tags were used with great success in Houston at the U.S. Olympic Trials Marathons on Saturday, January 14.

IPICO Sports will offer several options for the DF Bib Tag – both an adhesive label and an integrated bib number format. The integrated bib number will be available in both generic and fully-customized versions and will be delivered with race-ready “bib-to-tag” mapping files.

IPICO Sports President and CEO Gordon Westwater said, “We are pleased to launch this new product offering at our North American IPICO Sports User Group Meeting. Our customers requested a Bib Tag solution that would work with their existing IPICO Sports Timing Systems. The performance of our award-winning Dual Frequency sports technology platform provides superior precision, accuracy and reliability. The DF Bib Tag is a great complement to our current tag portfolio.”

The IPICO Sports DF Bib Tag was developed under the direction of Marius Van Dyk, IPICO Sports Technical Director. He explained his team’s design intent, “It was important for us to provide a bib number-based option with similar performance characteristics to our IPICO Sports Shoe Tags. With the newly revised X8 DF chip, we were able to develop a bib tag that meets our high standards. Our customers will be able to use the IPICO Sports DF Bib Tag with their current systems immediately, and we’re certain they will appreciate the performance and ease-of-use.”

The tag is available in 3 single use versions, a fully custom integrated bib tag, a generic integrated bib tag and an adhesive ring tag for application on customer supplied bibs. Each bib tag order will ship with a bib-to-tag mapping file to facilitate tag distribution and the race timing application.
