A facility is provided to generate a finish event via the PC timeclock (Button Start), and a facility is provided to receive finish events from the Timy clock via the serial port. And a facility is provided to enter manually a finish events, read from a stopwatch.

The finish event times are recorded in hh:mm:ss,ms format. With each finish a indicator can be set wheter or not an offset time must be added to the finish time.

When the Timy communication is on, a running time that is updated every 1 second is received from Timy and displayed in the Running time textbox. When a Timing event is received from Timy, this is displayed in the timing event textbox, and stored to T650, and becomes present in the F654 sub to be processed.
