The Orienteering Ireland SportIdent Kit is now divided into two – Northern and Southern
The Northern Kit is maintained by Mary Healy of Great Eastern Navigators and booking for use at Orienteering Ireland registered events may be made by sending an email to Mary at email@example.com
The Northern kit contains 50 control units (Codes 150 to 199 inclusive) – type BSF 7 (Firmware version 5.80), two x clear, check, start and finish units, two USB BSM 7 main stations, one timemaster (for time synchronisation of units)and a stock of SI cards for renting at events.
The Southern kit is maintained by Liam O’Brien of CSOA. Booking for use at IOA registered events may be made by sending an email to Liam at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Southern kit contains 49 control units (codes 100 to 149 inclusive) – type BSF 7, two x clear, check, start and finish units, two USB BSM 7 main stations,one timemaster and a stock of SI cards for renting at events
The control kits must be collected from the coordinators, as agreed in advance, and returned as soon as possible after the event or when requested. Lost or damaged equipment must be replaced and the Club responsible will be charged with the replacement cost. The current replacement value for control units is €110 + postage. With this in mind planners/organisers of events should consider the security of control sites and whether special precautions needs to be taken (e.g. secure fixings, supervision,, etc.)
SPORTident UK to purchase SportIdent cards and other SportIdent equipment. Also try OL-Shop in Austria or All4O in Latvia.
Some clubs have purchased their own SI equipment but at this stage not many are self sufficient. Contact clubs directly for information on club SI equipment. There are practical difficulties in sharing equipment for the same event – such as ensuring time synchronisation, code series, etc. For this reason the different sets of equipment should be kept intact. For multi-day events use a different set for each day.
