General
The Start Judge SJ is a system to control the start of short distance track races (up to 400
m). The system consists of a Start Judge Cart and a Starting Block for each lane. The Start
Judge system has a built-in speaker system. This allows the starter to give commands to the
athletes through the loudspeakers built into the starting blocks. Also the start command goes
through these loudspeakers. This has the advantage for the athletes that every athlete can
hear the start tone at the same time without any delay.
Stast Judge Cart SJT
Starting block STAMA
Page 5
Start Judge SJ
Each athlete has a starting block with a built-in contact. As soon as the athlete starts, he triggers this contact and the system checks the start impulse of the starter against each individual start time. If an athlete starts faster than a 1/10 of a second after the start, he causes a
false start. There are two modes of the Start Judge to report a false start:
•
•
Automatically false start tone of the Start Judge system to call the athletes back.
False start tone in the head set of the starter and recaller informs about a false start,
measured by the Start
Judge system. Now it is up to the starter and recaller to call the
athletes back.
At the Start Unit SU it is possible to connect a head set. The Headset Q34 is used for the
communication between the starter and the timing operator, but also for the announcement
for the athletes through the loudspeakers.
Also the Startmicrophone SM8 is connected to the Start Unit SU. The Startmicrophone SM8
is mounted on top of the Startgun (6 or 9 mm).
In the Start Judge Cart SJC we have all necessary components built-in like Start Judge Controller, printer, amplifier, charger, and battery. The Printer P4 records all start times. On this
document the starter can detect the lane that caused the false start.

Connection Plan
Before you can use the StartJudge system you have to connect all components:
1) Connection between StartJudge Cart and closed Starting Block ASB with cable reel
KT139-30
2) Connection from one starting block to the next with cable 139-12
3) At the last starting block the SWC-END must be plugged
4) Connection between Start Judge Cart and StartUnit SU with cable 202-20
5) Connect the headset Q34 at the StartUnit SU
6) Connect the startmicrophone SM8 at the StartUnit SU
7) Connection between timing device (e.g. OPTI1c) and StartJudge Cart SJCC with cable
reel KT150 or through fix stadium cabling.
Permanent Connections on the StartJudge Cart:
8) Connection from StartJudge Controller SJC (AUDIO OUT - position f) to Amplifier PA888
(AUX - position 5).
9) Connection from StartJudge Controller SJC (amplifier - position G) to Amplifier PA888
(position D).

Operation of Start Judge
4.1
Switching the StartJudge on
1) Connect all cables before you turn the devices on. If you turn the amplifier on without
plugged speakers, it could damage the amplifier.
2) Switch on the Amplifier PA-888 (position 11 - front side)
3) Switch on the StartJudge Controller SJC (position E - back side)

If you want to turn it on, please act as decribed 4.2.2.
The false start tone in the speakers is automatically off.
If you want to turn it on, you have to it as decribed 4.2.3.
The printing goes automatically until here.

The system informs you about the amount of starting blocks
that it has dedected.
Setting the ready tone in the headset
This function is activating a signal which is showing the Starter that all athletes are in position. As long as he can hear a beeb tone in the headset it signalize that an athlete is still
moving!
You can only adjust the Ready Tone in the Headset when the system is running (after the
synchronization). After turning the Start Judge on the Ready Tone is automatically switched

off. To turn the external tone for the headset on you have to press the green start button (m)
till the SJC makes a beep signal (ca.3 sec.).
4.2.3
Setting the false start tone in the speaker
You can only adjust the False Start Tone when the system is running (after the synchronization). After turning the Start Judge on the False Start Tone is automatically on the speakers.
To turn the external tone on the speakers off you have to press the green start button (m) till
the SJC makes a double beep-tone (ca.5 sec.).
4.2.4
Setting the Negative Time-Frame
The ALGE Startjudge System is working with a variable timing-window before and after the
Startimpulse. The standard setting is from -0,2 up to +1,0 Seconds.
The negative Window can be adjusted between -0,3 and minus 0,05 seconds with 0,05 second steps.
To adjust the negative time-frame you have to press the green start button (m) till the SJC is
printing the desired value (7 seconds or more).
4.3
False start measuring operation
The false start system measures (outputs) only impulses which happen 0.3 seconds before
and after the start. All other impulses are not registered.
If a athlete makes too much pressure on the starting block before the race begins, the starter
will hear three beeps, a pause, again three beeps, etc. If the starter hears this signal, he
should stop the start and tell the athlete to use the starting block correctly; otherwise he won’t
have a reaction time of this athlete.
Some examples of the printout:
Start with impulses from all lanes and without false start:
