The pCard timing chip is ideal for groups and events where the number of controls is always small. pCards are suitable for school orienteering and for Enduro races. pCards come with a wrist safety strap. They hold a maximum of 20 controls, including any errors or duplicate punches so we recommend only using for events with 15 or fewer controls.
The SIAC (SI Air+ touchless timing chip) is the newest and fastest timing chip available. See below for details of the touchless system. Upgrade to a 25 cm timing chip strap to allow it to be worn around the wrist for ski orienteering. Add a wrist safety strap as extra protection to prevent accidental loss during an event.
Additional colours coming! Starting mid-June 2023 we will also have turquoise and pink!

Air+ controls allow for participants to punch the control from a distance, given they have the proper personal SI stick (SIAC). These large controls have a range of 3m and are often used as finish controls so that participants can cross the finish line at full speed, not having to slow down to insert their SI stick into the control.
Air+ controls allow for participants to punch the control from a distance, given they have the proper personal SI stick (SIAC). These small controls have a range of 1.8m and allow for participants to maintain flow through controls, not having to slow down to insert their SI stick into the control.
