Do you need to measure the speed of bullets, their trajectory, and do you even test weapons? If the answer is yes, then you definitely need a chronograph for shooting. Now we will find out what it is for and how it works, what types are available and whether we can buy from the Zarimex online store.
What are shooting chronographs?
They are designed to measure the speed of bullets. Their work is expressed in the presence of two sensors for reading the speed of the bullet, screen, button, etc. The measuring sensors in most cases are optical and read how long the bullet travels a certain distance from the beginning to the end of the measured trajectory. The reading actually starts from the moment the cartridge passes from the first sensor to reaching the last one.
In this case, the speed is reported based on the time and distance traveled to reach the goal. Everything is reported on the screen of the shooting chronograph.
In which cases do you need shooting chronographs
Probably after reading the article so far you think that you do not need a chronograph for shooting. However, let's briefly present the cases in which people need such a device:
- Adjusting an air or combat weapon - you need to make a measurement to find out if the new air rifle spring, or after greasing the weapon it works properly;
- Testing or making bows and crossbows - if you produce such weapons, you need to measure the speed and flying length of the arrows.
These are just a few examples when chronographs are used for shooting. Of course, they are also very popular in sports circles, where it is necessary to hit targets and accurately account for the trajectory and distance passed from one point to another.
What types will you find?
You have probably noticed that the Zarimex category of chronographs is quite diverse, so here you will find different types such as modern adapters for phones, barrels, target surveillance cameras, incl. accessories - such as a chronograph remote control, etc.
When choosing, it is important to pay attention to the accuracy indicators and means of outputting information. That is, the accuracy of measurement and the convenience of obtaining the processed information. The range of speed and length are not essential, as in most cases both the speed of the arrow and the bullet can be measured. If you are doing something unusual and innovative, you need to consider your choice.
