Forget long journeys to the Club – the TauRIS® Remote Strike allows you to check the clock from the comfort of your own home! It is as easy as this: Clock your pigeons as before. Connect the TauRIS® terminal to your PC.
https://tauris.de/tauris-remote-strike/?lang=en

For Club racing, TauRIS will soon release Remote Strike, where you will be able to send your clock timing results directly to your club race secretary from your home. You’ll be able to use Compakt+, Maxx, Compakt XL, and the World Clock to accomplish this. The club will buy the club software, and members will buy the Remote Strike software and hardware. Pricing coming soon.

Remote stopping/stoppage [of the race] (or else Remote [time] evaluation [of the race])


Explanation:
In the patent itself there is a clear connection with precise measurement/comparison of time. For example:
"Somit wird mit der vorliegenden Erfindung ein Verfahren zur Durchführung eines Fernabschlages im Brieftaubensport beansprucht, mit einer elektronischen Konstatieruhr mit dem die Ankunftszeiten der von einem Wettflug heimkehrenden Brieftaube manipulationssicher festgehalten wird, wobei die aktuelle Uhrzeit der Konstatieruhr mit einer Masterzeit (z.B. einer Funkuhr oder GPS-Zeit) verglichen wird und die Differenz aus dem Zeitvergleich der Uhrzeit der Konstatieruhr und der Vergleichszeit zur Korrektur der Konstatieruhr zwecks Ermittlung der wahren Ankunftszeit verwendet wird, [...]"

Therefore the proposal of "remote time comparison" by Chris Pr is reasonable.

The business to whom the patent is assigned, Gantner Pigeon Systems GmbH, have manuals for some of their BENZING-branded devices available in both English and German.
https://benzing.cc/de/kb/m1-anleitung/

They demonstrate a clear correspondence between "Abschlag" and stopping of the race. But also (and not entirely systematically) with the corresponding evaluation of the time — a closely related issue.
For example
"Wettflug abgeschlagen/ausgewertet. Eingesetzte Tauben, die zum Zeitpunkt des Abschlagens noch nicht konstatiert wurden, werden als "nichtgewertete Tauben" markiert (Symbol "Ø")."
"Race is stopped/evaluated. Basketed pigeons, which have not been registered at the time the race is stopped, are marked as ‘not evaluated pigeons’ (symbol Ø)."

and

"5.4.1 Abschlagen
Abschlagen bezeichnet das Stoppen eines Wettflugs, sodass eine nachfolgende Auswertung erfolgen kann und die im Wettflug eingesetzten Tauben wieder verwendet werden können."
"5.4.1 Evaluating the Race
A race is stopped so that it can be subsequently evaluated and the pigeons that have been
basketed on that race can be used again."

and

"5.4.3 Zwischenabschlag (kein endgültiger Abschlag des Fluges)
Diese Funktion dient zum zwischenzeitlichen Auswerten während eines Wettflugs. Der Wettflug bleibt "aktiv". Meist wird die Funktion verwendet, wenn im Schlag in der Zwischenzeit ein Durchkonstatiermodul weitere ankommende Tauben speichert."
"5.4.3 Temporary Evaluation (No Final Stop of the Race)
This function enables an temporary evaluation during the period a race takes place. The race remains ′active’. This function is mostly used if in the interim period a module constantly registering arriving pigeons in the loft saves further arriving pigeons."

In these manuals the correspondence of "Abschlag" with stopping the race is closer than the correspondence with evaluation of the race.
