IT System

(Endurance Real Time Zuccolo) is an equestrian endurance IT system (information technology system), Fabio Zuccolo's idea and property, who is also the informatics developer.

All data are digital in real time for start, arrivals and vetgate and can be expanded to any place of the venue.

Real Time digital information is required in endurance events, to manage timing and vetcards and to give to the Ground Jury and Organizers a tool to have full control of the event.

Timing System

uses an Active Transponder system to automatically identify the competitors at timing lines. Errors or delayed timing info are finally canceled!

Active Transponder are very small and mounted on horses' bridles, with no kind of problems for the horse.
The horse must have the bridle from start to the end, placed over his own bridle.

Timing antennas and activators are very simple to place, in order to simplify as possible and to have the best system as possible.

Digital Vetcards

digital Vetcards are the core of the vetgate.

The vetgate management is so important that vetcards must be digital and stored on the system through tablets. It is important to have a paper backup system that is on the other side of the tablet's cover.

After the inspection, the Time Card is automatically printed for the Competitor, where he can see all timing and veterinarian data of the phase.

On the Time Card, he can see also the departure time and the gap to the first in rank, the previous and the following on rank.

Heart Rate System

Heart Rate is the real time system that shows horses' heart rate during the vet inspection.
The system has been approved by FEI (International Equestrian Federation) and can be used in all International and National events.!

The system has the Device, the Sensor and the device's bag.

The Device is used to enter the BIB number of the competitor by the keyboard in order to assign pulses to the him, then to show and see the timer and the pulse.

The Sensor goes on the horse and take the pulse to send to the device. Only the electrodes meet the horse on his chest and the disturb to the horse is really minimum.

The Monitor shows the pulses of the horse in real time during the assessment. In big events, a big LED Wall can be used to make more attactive the event.

After the use, the Veterinarian can place the device on the bag.

Vet Lines Assignment

Vet Lines Assignment is a RANDOM system to manage the lines assignment inside the Vetgate.

With this system, the horse will be inspected by different Veterinarians, making the competition as fair as possible.
