Mylaps ProChip Decoder



The MYLAPS Run ProChip System, previously the AMB ChipX System, is the best timing system for events with less than 500 participants* and for cycling clubs. We optimized the system to keep your initial costs low by using self-powered timing chips that send signals directly to the timing system. Clubs can use the system for both club events and for timing training sessions, providing ongoing benefits for club members. Hundreds of mass cycling events and organizations use our system, including Tour de France and a number of Federations including, British Cycling, TLI, Denmark, Poland, Turkey and the Netherlands.

The Mylaps ProChip decoder is designed for use in active sports such as cycling, triathlon, swimming, rollerblading, ice-skating and more.. The unit is the heart of the system and is attached to the detection loop which decodes the transponder signal into the competitor's ID and the exact time that he/she crossed the finish line.
