Relay Take-Off Platform

Daktronics manufactures the most accurate relay take-off platform on the market today. The RTOP (Relay Take-Off Platform) detects the precise moment when a swimmer loses contact with the starting block during a relay exchange. Revolutionary new technology allows the RTOP to sense human contact, rather than force. The Daktronics RTOP is not dependent on the weight of the athlete, the style of start, or variations with starting blocks.

Six Daktronics RTOP models fit various block sizes. See the RTOP Product Specifications tab for sizes currently available and the Accessories tab for unlimited color options and the storage cart.

The RTOP meets the latest FINA and NCAA requirements in producing precise and consistent relay exchange timing.
