Configuration of the competition.
Open a job and select the type of competition as well as the gender of the participants (men/women). Edit the competition record and once the event is over, take down the best records. Determine the throwing center in accordance with a reference point or three points constituting the throwing range. Compare the ranges established in relation to IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) regulations. During long jumps, establish the reference lien as the orthogonal source of measurements. Establish the number of attempts and add as many sportspeople as you wish in each competition. Data display in accordance with the criteria of the federation (truncated to the cm) and, in the event of a play-off, check the millimeters of each jump. Determine the quality of the throw by entering the record, invalidating the attempt with a Null or passing the round at the sportsperson’s discretion. 
Automatic ordering of competition results according to chronological order or sports records. 

Immediate forwarding of records. 
Send the competition records in a fully editable format and convey this to the control center by means of RS232 connection.
