O-Lynx Touch

Fast and easy entry of competitors into the O-Lynx software.

O-Lynx Touch is software to allow individuals at orienteering events to register themselves easily for a course before a competition without assistance. It reduces the workload and stress required to run an event. It cuts the time for registration for those with their own Sportident card and even for those with a hired one. It allows individuals to run a second course simply – they can re-register themselves while keeping the same SI chip number.

O-Lynx Touch is used with the OE2010, OEScore 2003 or  O-Lynx Event software.  While O-Lynx Touch optimised to be used with a touch-screen device, you may also use O-Lynx Touch on any windows computer with a mouse.

sCC0

Chip Checker – allows you to ‘teach’ O-Lynx Touch all of your club chips. Then at the finish of the clubs events they can be punched and sorted into bags. Chip Checker will identify any missing chips and produces a report in CSV format for the event. Has also been used to log chips as competitors enter the start area of an adventure race and produce a easy to read CSV file.

 

sCR3

Chip Registration – assign Chips to entries by scanning or entering the bib number. This screen removes the need to pre-assign chips as the chip number can quickly be entered by punching as they are handed out on race day.

 

sRC2      sRC1

Registration Check – lookup entry details by punching or entering the chip number. Allows people to self check their details and start time or can be used by start officials to confirm the entry information.

How-to

While most often used over WIFI, the following video shows connecting up a tablet with O-Lynx Touch using a wired connection.

Hardware

O-Lynx Touch works with computers with Windows XP, 7, 8, 10 but is optimised for Windows 8/10 tablets running a resolution of 1366 x 768.

The following tablets are known to have been used by clubs operating O-Lynx Touch ….

Samsung Ativ 500, ASUS Vivo ME400C ( with mini USB to full USB adapter )

Sportident Stations. On some tablets the USB Sportident stations have experienced connection issues presumably due to device driver compatibility. The best solution to this is to use the Serial Sportident stations with an off the shelf USB to Serial adapter.

( If you are using different hardware, let us know so that it can be added to the list )
