Battery Cables for BMX Starting Gate
12V Battery Cables
Our Price: $28.00
12V battery cables allow you to power the iGate BMX from an automotive type battery.  No need to run a long extension cord to your practice site!  Includes fuse, battery clamps and 8ft long heavy duty cable that plugs directly into the iGate BMX Controller Module. Note that the magnetic latch gets its power from the iGate BMX, so this cable powers both the controller and the magnet.  No additional cable or power source is needed. Rival Racing's iGate BMX is an electronic interface that lets you run a starting gate from your cell phone or tablet! No other gate controller is needed! The system requires a downloaded app on your electronic device, (like Random Gate) to operate. Use the built-in speaker on your phone or tablet to hear the same official random starting cadence that you hear at the track or plug your own speakers into your phone or tablet to amplify the sound for crowd pleasing volume.

Includes 12v wall adapter, or use with optional 12V battery cables (Part No. BC-12) to power from an automotive battery.
It's well known that magnets can be used to operate a starting gate but this kit is an economical way to take the guess work out of the setup process. Rival Racing's magnetic latch is rated for 180kg or 350LBS max holding force. Depending on your gate setup, this may be enough for a 2-man gate. (Note that two magnets can be operated from one iGate BMX controller, if more holding force is needed.)

The armature plate (that the magnet latches onto) is our own proprietary design that features a special anti-residual magnetism feature for consistent and positive release every time. This is one valuable distinction from other types of magnets on the market that have unpredictable release characteristics and may even overheat if used on a starting gate.

Rival Racing Technologies' mounting brackets are designed for flexible mounting onto virtually any starting gate. The brackets are made from 6061 aircraft aluminum, which is strong yet soft enough to easily drill your own mounting holes if needed. Detailed setup instructions are available from our Downloads page.

The kit includes the matching armature plate, all mounting brackets needed and an 8ft power cable that plugs into the iGate BMX controller. Magnet and armature plate are approx. 7" x 2.8".
