DGT 2010, the official chess clock of the world chess federation FIDE.
The DGT 2010 was introduced in 2007 and received the status of "Official FIDE chess clock" in June 2008 after tests by four top-level arbiters concluded that the clock is in full accordance with all FIDE rules and regulations.
Some features of the DGT 2010 were altered or improved in November 2010 to comply with up do date popular timing systems.
The main differences of the new model DGT 2010 in respect to the previous version are:
The buttons on the front of casing are dark blue instead of red
In every manual option, the last setting is kept after switching of the timer even if other options are used in between;
Options for Scrabble™ are added;
Bronstein delay with multi timecontrols can be set;
In Canadian Byo-yomi the extra time can be added automatically after the required number of moves;
Some preset times were altered in more popular settings.
The DGT 2010 is suitable for use with many games e.g. it has Japanese and Canadian Byo-yomi settings for Go.
