A range of their products were on display including a couple of new items;

Announched last year in concept, now the prototype has been made and DS hope to begin deliveries this year. The lap counting/timing system combines a number of items into one box/unit. Stop/Go, Controller plugs, timing and lap counting. Designed for a two lane system the unit will be packed with the new universal infrared lightbridge. The unit feature USB conections for hook up to laptops and PC's etc supplied with a demo version of WINSLOT software. Expected RRP to be in the region of 150 Euros for both items as a set (TBC).

New adjustable lightbridge with spacers for smaller trakc widths.

There are alot of outputs on the back of this unit. I wonder if you are going to be able to dasiy chain these to do more than 2 lanes, all be it with a computer to do the lap counting.
Looks like this has a HDMI port, a modem socket and an ethernet socket and also a Micro USB socket, very promising.
Wow, looks like a seriouse bit of kit. Any idea on price?
