The Timer 300
Tabletop Timer

A comment from a Timer 300 Customer:

"It is, no doubt, the best timer for this activity. I thought I would be telling you that it might not work, but it works incredibly well .... I have even used it in my class for a nice, easy-to-see timer for experiments and activities."

The Timer 300 was designed quiz competition. It is a fully-integrated timer with all our buzzer systems.

The Timer 300 connects to the buzzer system console and has two primary functions:
1) Displays time remaining during a question
2) Automatically locks out all players when time has expired

The Timer 300 and
its remote control

Additionally, the Timer 300 has a hand-held remote control that enables the moderator to start, stop, or pause the timer. The remote also allows the moderator to change between pre-set countdown times... all without touching the timer console.

Resetting the timer also resets your buzzer system -- you can control your competition all from the timer's remote control!

Two Timer Options Are Available...
Which Option is Right for You?


Why are there two timer options?
Groups and organizations have different rules for timing during their competitions. Therefore, we have two different options. Please look carefully at these options and determine which is right for you.

Your timer doesn't do exactly what we need. Can a "new" timer be made for my tournament format?
It's likely we can adjust the way our timer works for almost any format. Please email us and we'll assign an engineer to study your application and see if it's feasible.

But won't a customized timer cost a lot extra?
Not necessarily. It all depends on the complexity of your format. Please give us a try!
