To develop a compact system that fits seamlessly into the setting of any tennis court was our top priority. With a focus on minimalistic design and simple installation.

The three components of the Wingfield Court

1) The Wingfield Box

The heart of our court. This is where all data is collected, connected to the video and uploaded to your user account.

2) The Baseline camera

It provides the corresponding video for the collected data and sends it to the Wingfield Box.

 

3) The PoE switch

It supplies the Baseline camera with power and ensures a reliable connection between all components and the Internet.

 


 

Cables

kabel

Power cable

To operate a Wingfield Court, two power connections are required – each one for the Wingfield Box and the PoE switch.

 

Network cable

The transmission of the video from the Baseline camera to the Wingfield Box is carried out via a network cable. A direct cable connection is also recommended for an optimal connection to the Internet.

 


Connectors

Wingfield Box

The Wingfield Box requires a power connection. Its maximum power is approx. 140W. If installed indoors, a normal socket (type F) is sufficient. Outdoors, either a weatherproof plug connector (type F Schuko plug - see picture) should be used or the entire connection should be housed in a weatherproof enclosure.

Network cables (CAT 6a) in various lengths are part of our delivery. If you want to lay your own cables beforehand, make sure that they have a similar quality (CAT6 or better). Transmission rates of up to 1 Gbit/s should be guaranteed. For a secure (and weatherproof) connection to the Wingfield Box, an adapter is included which should be mounted on one of our supplied cables.

 

PoE switch

The PoE switch requires a separate power connection. Its maximum power is about 60W (<10W in normal use). A normal socket (type F) is sufficient for indoor installation. For weatherproof outdoor installation, the switch should be directly connected to a three-core power cable (see picture).

Network cables (CAT 6a) in various lengths are part of our delivery. If you want to lay your own cables beforehand, the cable requirements described above apply here as well. The cables can be connected to the switch in a weatherproof manner without additional adapters.

⚠️ Attention: Field-terminated plugs and sockets (see picture below), which are often used by electricians, do not fit into the weatherproof housing.
