Timing Setup for Running

Running chip timing systems combine chips (tags) worn by athletes and detection mats along the course, for example at the start or finish line. The MYLAPS BibTag System has the highest read-rates in the industry. As the bibs are available in a disposable and a reusable version, it requires minimal handling and logistics. The tags are easy to use for participants: they simply wear their bib numbers like they are used to.

The BibTag Smart Decoder is the nextgeneration BibTag decoder. The light and small design is unlike any other decoder in the active mass timing industry. A product with the MYLAPS premium quality in performance when it comes to read rates, accuracy, density, and trustworthiness.

Enjoy the great usability experience when operating the BibTag Smart Decoder with a multi-color display, more intuitive controls as well as the lid window and side warning-LEDs.

Our decoder utilizes state-of-the-art technology to ensure accurate and real-time timing data capture. The high-performance system guarantees precise detection of participants, in all kinds of sports and event sizes. The BibTag Smart Decoder is fully compatible with the current BibTag portfolio.

Detection mats are placed at the start, finish and intermediate timing locations. The mats serve as the system’s antennas and detect the signals sent out by the BibTags. We offer modular mats that allow you to create timing locations between 1 and 8 meters wide per system.

The decoder is attached to the mats and decodes the BibTag signals into the athletes IDs and their measured times. Portable decoders have an integrated battery and can measure up to 50 BibTag passings per second.

The system is especially designed for mass events and can handle a high density of athletes.

The EasyMat is an innovation that helps set up your timelines faster than you could ever imagine. The rollable formula enables you to deploy the timing mat with one movement. The cabling is integrated within the mat, so there’s no more manual cable handling needed. The short setup time (within 1 minute) means minimal road closure time before and after the race.

The mat is compatible with both the MYLAPS BibTag and ProChip systems, which makes it a convenient solution for multiple sports and their unique timing needs. The flat design guarantees safe passing for all sports.
