SportsTiming.ie can provide you with one of two high quality timing solutions. Both these systems have been developed by AMB i.t. who recently purchased ChampionChip and are now known as MYLAPS Timing.

Our MYLAPS ProChip System previously the AMB ChipX System, is one of the most advanced chip timing systems in the world today.

ProChip timing systems have been utilized at the UCI World Championships since 1993, the Olympic games since 1996, and the Tour de France since 2004. More recently the Worlds Triathlon Championships in Australia and numerous Half and Full Ironman Triathlons around the world.

New to market early in 2010 the MYLAPS BIBTag system works using UHF technology direct from participant's race numbers.

This highly accurate and DISPOSABLE system eliminates the need to collect the timing chips on completion of an event. ALL our equipment would be best in class timing systems and allows us to provide our clients with simple, accurate and reliable results for any style of event.

MYLAPS BIBTAG SYSTEM

Timing a race is a challenging task. The MYLAPS BibTag system is designed to minimize logistics and is extremely user friendly for participants. It is the world's only timing system with just a single disposable timing chip attached to the bib number. Simply distribute the bibs with integrated tags to the athletes and the results are guaranteed.

Whether you are organizing a marathon or a smaller local running race, the MYLAPS BibTag system can be set up to suit your event's needs. The modular mats can cover roads up to 8 meter wide and you can add as many split points as you need. There is no limit to the number of participants. This means athletes do not have to slow down to maneuver in a bottleneck finish.

The technology in the mats will also spare you from organizing an army of volunteers for timekeeping.

DISPOSABLE UHF Timing Chips (BibTags)

The BibTag is attached to the runners BIB number and sends out a unique signal.

MYLAPS Detection mats

Detection mats are placed at the start and finish and intermediate time points. The mats serve as the systems antennas and detect the signals send out by the timing chips (BibTags). We offer modular mats that allow you to create timing locations between 1 and 8 meters wide.

MYLAPS BibTag Portable Decoder

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.

MYLAPS PROCHIP SYSTEM

Our MYLAPS Prochip System previously the AMB ChipX System, is one of the most advanced chip timing systems in the world today. The ProChip system can accurately record up to 80 ProChips per second, at speeds up to 45 mph. Perhaps the only real solution for multi-sport and cycling events. The ProChip system has been designed to provide accurate results to 1/1000th of a second and a 99.9% capture rate without the need for redundant back-up points.

ProChip timing systems have been utilized at the UCI World Championships since 1993, the Olympic games since 1996, and the Tour de France since 2004. More recently the Worlds Triathlon Championships in Australia and numerous Half and Full Ironman Triathlons around the world. SportsTiming.ie own multiple timing decoders.

These decoders record at (.001 accuracy) and have the flexibility to fit your event needs. The detection loop is adjustable to a full 12m (39 ft) depending on your course layout needs. The loop/wires can be taped directly to the course surface or even embedded.

They are very low profile and will not interfere with the finish. No mats for your cyclists or athletes to ride or run over. All of the above allows us to provide our clients with simple, accurate and reliable timing solutions for any style of event.
