The ALGE S4 timer continues to be the standard of the industry.

The S4 came out with design 1 in 1992. Several of these are still in daily operation around the world. They always had temperature compensated quartz oscillators and solid construction.

Design 3 was introduced in 2010 and continues the proud tradition. Use of the matching P5 printer and power supply makes audit trail data logging easy and inexpensive with standard thermal receipt paper.

ALL S4 timers sold by Phoenix Sports technology since 1992 have been shipped with unidirectional PC data cables.

Unidirectional serial data transmission has been recognized as the only guaranteed method of preventing possible contamination by external devices or software.

Operators desiring a matching net time data logger can use an additional P5 printer connected to another discrete serial port on the PC. Popular software like Split Second allow the operator to specify the data logging port.

Sure. Just move the "red" jumper on the inside of the main circuit board by the rocker on/off switch.

MAKE SURE YOU LABEL THE S4 FOR RECHARGEABLES ONLY. We have seen so many S4 timers ruined by alkalines bursting when charged by S4s mislabeled.

Design 3 has an 8 pin connector the same as the rs232 socket for the printer. It also has yellow and black banana plug output for direct connection to display boards. Otherwise it is the same as Design 2
