Timing system for all speed skating & short track events

✔ High speed accuracy ✔  Athlete detection and lap timing ✔  ProChip 

Timekeeping at speed skating & short track events is a huge challenge. Speed skating has three different disciplines, therefore athlete detection, lap timing and accurate results are essential.

Short track events require high detection rates and being able to publish results quickly. Whereas, professional speed skaters reach high speeds while having to be measured at an accuracy of 1/1000th of a second.

With these challenging conditions, events, clubs and timers simply need a system on which they can rely at all times.

Timing Setup

 The ProChip system is accurate and highly reliable under demanding conditions: it easily deals with cold and ice. Moreover, the antenna that is required to pick up the signals from the athletes can easily be embedded in icy surfaces.

Attached to the detection loop, it decodes the transponder signal into the athlete’s ID at the exact time at which the athlete crossed the time line. The table-top decoder needs to be attached to an external power source.


  • Easy system set-up with simple wire antennas
  • Easy to handle, easy to carry
  • Intuitive operation
  • Highly accurate GPS synchronization
  • Connectivity through Ethernet

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

The detection loop can be installed in every type of surface. For installation in the ice: Cut slots of approximately 2 cm (1inch) deep in the ice, embed the loop wires and fill with water. Make sure to do this well in advance of an event, as the water will need some time to freeze.
