General
ALGE-TIMING offers two different models of the electronic start devices:
e-Start ........... start device with flash and cable connection
e-Start W....... start device with flash and radio communication
In this manual only the model e-Start W is described.
1 .........Flash
2 .........Status LED
3 .........Radio LED
4 .........Push Button (Impulse Trigger)
5 .........Team-Switch
6 .........Charging Socket
The e-Start W sends the timing impulse by radio to an ALGE timing device or speaker system
BANG W. An internal rechargeable battery supplies the e-Start W.
1.1
Integrated Radio System (Wireless Timing Network WTN)
The e-Start W has an integrated radio network system ALGE-WTN built in. This radio system
can be used as a radio network. A system can include two or more devices of the ALGE WTNseries.
Page 4
Manual
e-Start W
The following devices are offered from the WTN-family by ALGE-TIMING:
• WTN .................... universal radio network device
• Timy3 W .............. timing device with built in radio network
• Timy3 WP ............ timing device with built in radio network
• PR1aW ................ photocell with built in radio network
• WTN-DB .............. radio network for display boards
• WTN-WS ............. radio network for anemometer (Track and Field)
• WTN-PB .............. push button with built in radio network
• Bang W ................ start speaker system with built in radio network
• E-Start W ............. start device with flash and built in radio network
The network is designed in such a way that you can transmit data to a display board (e.g.
ALGE GAZ or D-LINE), serial RS232 data (e.g. to a PC) and timing impulses at the same
time.
When designing the Wireless Timing Network the ALGE development team concentrated on
features that make ALGE devices unique, but also on features that stand for ALGE products:
easy operation, highest reliability, rugged casing. Up-to-date technology, integrated in a solid
case, results in exceptional features.
Attention: Before using the device make sure that you are allowed to operate it in your
country. The radio power output must be adjusted so that it is legal to use it in the country
you operate it in.
EU:
max. 10 mW are allowed
USA:
max. 100 mW are allowed
It is only possible to adjust the radio output of the e-Start W through a WTN or Timy3. The
factory setup is 10 mW.

Commissioning
The e-Start W has an internal battery. Before operating the device make sure that the rechargeable battery is charged. For charging the e-Start W use the power supply PS12A.
Before using the e-Start W with other devices make sure that all radio devices of the WTNfamily (e.g. BANG W, WTN, Timy3 WP) are adjusted to the same team. The team can be adjusted at the team switch (5) with a small screw drive (see 2.3 Team Adjustment (Radio Frequency)).
Make sure the e-Start W has channel 0 (start channel C0) adjusted. This channel is the factory setting, but it is possible to adjust another timing channel (see 2.4 Timing Channel Adjustment).

2.1
Switching ON
•
•
2.2
Press push button (4) until the Status LED (2) shows green (the LED shows first red,
than changes to green).
Release the push button (4). The e-Start is ready.
Switching OFF
•
2.3
Press push button (4) for ca. 5 sec. until the Status LED (2) shows permanently red.
Team Adjustment (Radio Frequency)
This function is to select the team number. You can select between 15 team
numbers using a small screw driver. There are 9 single teams (single mode
= different radio channels) and 6 joint teams (all = same radio channels).
Position 0 is an internal factory test mode and has no function for the user.
Separate Teams <S> = SINGLE
is used for completely independent networks. If you operate two networks next to each
other both networks operate in this mode on different frequencies and do not communicate with each other.
Separate Teams: position 1 to 9
Joint Teams <A> = ALL
is used for networks that work independently next to each other. If different A teams with
the same radio channel are operated, the other A teams can be used for data transmission. The data of the other team, however, is not used (e.g. for two show jumping
grounds that are next to each other).
Joint Teams: position A to F
2.4
Timing Channel
It is possible to set different timing channels. The usual timing channel is C0 (start channel –
factory setting). Adjustable is C0 (start), C1 (finish), C2, C3 and C4.
Setting the Timing Channel:
• Press push button (4) when switching device on for five seconds.
• The Radio LED (3) changes from blinking green to permanent green.
• Release push button (4) and channel C0 is adjusted.
• Other channels can be adjusted by pressing push button (4) shortly: 1 x for C1, 2 x for
C2 etc.
• When pressing five times the push button (4), channel C0 is selected once again.
• If the push button (4) is not pressed for 5 seconds, the e-Start W switches to normal
operational mode.
The adjusted channel is stored also after switching the e-Start off and on.
Adjusting Timing Channel C0:
Mostly channel C0 (start) is used with the e-Start W. If you press the push button (4) for
10 seconds when switching the device on, the default channel C0 is activated.
• e-Start W must be switched off.
• Press push button (4) for about 10 seconds until the Radio LED (3) changes from
green to red.
• Release push button (4).
• e-Start W executed a reset and channel C0 is set (factory setup of e-Start W).

LED Indication
During the operation the two LED (Status LED (2) and Radio LED (3)) show the following:
2.5.1
Status LED (2)
When pressing the push button (4) in operational mode (impulse) the Status LED (2) indicates the following:
Permanent red ................ Channel is triggered (possible short circuit on channel)
Permanent orange........... Status of timing device is „not ready“ (only with SU3)
Permanent green............. Channel is not triggered, after 3 seconds the LED switches to battery indication mode (blinking)
Showing the Battery Status:
Blinking green ................. battery is full
Blinking orange ............... battery is half full
Blinking red ..................... battery is almost empty
2.5.2
Radio LED (3)
The Radio LED (3) is the RSSI indication; this means it shows the signal strength to the
closest partner device.
Permanent red ................ no radio reception
Permanent orange........... radio reception is not ideal
Permanent green............. radio reception is optimal
