For years Timestep
sold the lowest cost HRPT system. For over 15 years
this budget system had worked
faultlessly in many installations and has provided a spring
board for projects that could not afford the often very
expensive alternatives. However, for professional use and in
areas of high winds, high humidity, high temperatures,
lightening and static sensitive areas, and where high reliability
is essential, Timestep have a professional system
that will work when the going gets tough !
