IPF Referee Light System

The IPF referee light system is the official system used for all European and International championships.

Main benefits of the referee light system:

Jury Overruling: The jury can overrule referee decisions via phone. Referees will receive a notification of the jury's decision, and the verdict will be displayed to them.

Customizable: The referee lights can be customized. Currently, we offer a standard solution, but for an additional fee, special requests can be accommodated. Customizations may include a custom logo, special features, etc. Please note that only systems approved by IPF or EPF and compliant with the IPF Rulebook are accepted.

Maintained: The system is regularly maintained to improve efficiency and introduce new features.

Support: If you encounter any issues with the devices provided by us, we are here to help. Please contact us at refereelights(at)powerlifting.sport.

WiFi Connection Instead of Bluetooth: To ensure reliability during competitions, we use a WiFi connection instead of Bluetooth. The system creates its own WiFi network, which does not require internet access to function. It also does not interfere with existing WiFi signals. Only phones with the necessary credentials can connect to the provided WiFi network.
