A split is a virtual point of the race that has no correlation with a physical point.
- Display the event for which you want to configure your splits.
- Display the “Splits” section.
- To create splits you can click on “+ Add” button, and you would add the splits one by one, but you can also open the creation menu and create the splits in block, import them from another race that you have in Copérnico and you can paste splits from another event within the same race with the edit buttons: cut, copy and paste..
- Complete the split information.
- Name. For example, “5K”.
- Physical location. The timing point from which you will receive the readings.
- Minimum time. Minimum time for the reading to be correct. For example, in a finish line split we would put 20 minutes. So Copérnico will only accept finish times longer than 20 minutes from the start.
- Type. There are three types of split available: “Start” for the start line; “Finish” for the finish line; and “Standard” for all others.
- Distance. Distance with respect to the start in meters. For example, at the 5K timing point we would put 5,000 meters..
You can modify the details of a split already created by clicking on the pencil icon. You can also delete it by clicking on the trash can icon.
When you generate splits in block the number of splits will be generated automatically, and the “Start” split will also be generated.
Configuration of time ranges
Clicking on the pencil icon will access the advanced editor, where you can set time ranges for races with laps.
Time range by split
- Minimum: minimum time the athlete will make from the start
- Maximum: maximum time the athlete will make from the start
Time range by lap
- Minimum: minimum time the athlete will make from the last lap
Maximum: maximum time the athlete will make from the last lap
Add a backup
By clicking on the pencil icon of a timing point you will access the advanced editor, where you can add a backup to this point.
- Click on “Add” in the backup section.
- Complete the backup information.
- Backup device identifier: backup timing point.
- Backup position: backup location with respect to the point (before or after).
- Distance from timing point: the time the athlete takes between the backup and the point. It’s an approximate value for Live. When you end the race, Copérnico will perform the calculation automatically.
