Detection loops are installed in the track at the start and finish line and intermediate time points. The loops work as the system´s antennas and pick up the ProChips signals.

The detection loop can be installed in basically every type of surface.

  • Asphalt or concrete (not permanent): use industrial quality adhesive tape to affix the loop to the course. Make sure you use high quality tape to secure the tape to the road.
