Huntsman Firearms is proud to be the exclusive Australian dealer of MagnetoSpeed products and authorised warranty agent.
MagnetoSpeed is a United States based manufacturer of precision electromagnetic velocity measurement devices. The majority of shooting chronographs currently marketed to the general public use optical sensors. MagnetoSpeed uses electromagnetic sensors (patent pending) to detect the presence of the bullet. The electromagnetic sensors are immune to muzzle blast, which allows the sensors to be located near the muzzle. As an added benefit, the sensors are immune to common light problems such as fluorescent lights, low sun, bright sun, etc.
The MagnetoSpeed products employ unique methods to determine velocity by sensing the difference in time between a slight disturbance in two magnetic fields as the bullet passes by. This is somewhat similar to the way that an electric guitar senses the vibration of its strings to produce amplified tones.
