Geco User Help

What do you need to run Geco?

  • A JRE (Java Runtime Environment, version 6+)
  • Geco bundle: it includes the application (jar file), some template files, user documentation, native libraries for serial communication (RXTX)
  • SportIdent drivers
    • Windows: check sportident website
    • Mac OS X: see the FAQ for custom install
    • Linux: if you are lucky, it works out of the box; if not, you are in for some RXTX custom install.
  • The SPORTident master station must be set up to use the extended protocol in handshake mode (no autosend). SiConfig can easily change a station configuration.

To launch Geco, execute the geco.jar file. It should opens automatically if your JRE is correctly configured.
