Timing system for all track cycling races and events

High speed accuracy ✔  Athlete detection and lap timing ✔  ProChip 

Timekeeping at track cycling events is a huge challenge. Track cycling has many different disciplines, therefore athlete detection, lap timing and accurate results are of the essence.

Cyclo events require high detection rates and being able to publish results quickly. Whereas, professional cyclists 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 system

Our MYLAPS timing system for Track Cycling is the ProChip System. With ProChip you have different setup options for Track Cycling with the highest quality read-rates and accuracy in the industry.

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

Features

  • 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 track, 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.

  • 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 loop to the road.
  • 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.
  • Snow: cut slots in the snow, approximately 20 cm (8 inch) deep. Place the loop wires in the slot and fill them with snow.

ProChips can be used at many different types of sports. They come with ankle strap for use at triathlons, swimming and more.

The ultimate system for high-speed elite sports

All athletes have a ProChip FLEX attached to their ankle/wrist strap or bike in order to identify each participant and to record the exact time at which they pass the start, finish and intermediate time lines. Each ProChip sends out a unique signal to the ProChip system that is embedded in the track.

The ProChip FLEX: used for many different sports

The ProChip Flex can be used for many different types of sports. They come with ankle strap for use at triathlons, swimming and more. When used at cycling events it is recommended to mount the ProChip FLEX on the bicycle’s front fork, as close as possible to the front axle, by using cable ties.
