BS11 and Air+ system - a flexible solution

Our SPORTident BS11 stations are really comfortable for organisers to handle, light and easy to carry and very robust. Add to that, they have the following advantages:

  • Higher reach 1.80m(BS11-BS) and 3m(BS11-BL), that means 3 times higher range than BS7/8:  enables time keeping within a bigger circle
  • Rechargable:  comfortable handling for organisers, sustainable and environmental friendly
  • Perfect use for fast running events: more flexibility for athletes and organisers
  • Light and Easy to fix despite robust construction
  • Weatherproof between -20 up to 50 degree

In combination with our SPORTident ActiveCard (SIAC), which enables contactless timing, it makes an ideal solution for trail running, mountain biking, orienteering sprint races, and other fast and adventure sports. 


These stations are available in following sets:
MTB Enduro Set and Time Keeper Set

Results of SPORTidents user survey concerning WOD 2017

To all participnats we want to say "Thank you very much" for taking part in our survey concerning the WOD 2017. With your answers, we got valuable input for starting to improve the quality of our products and services and it helped us a lot to report the WOD 2017. Therefore, we want to give you a short summary.

Summarized it can be said, that more than the half of the interviewed people didn´t participate for the first time in WOD 2017. Most of them participated with a sports or special orienteering club, to make their sport more popular, even to young people. With 71 points in average the more than 140 participants of our survey thought that the WOD 2017 was successful in their opinion and are going to take part in the next years` WOD, too. We also find out that 85% are doing orienteering sports next to the WOD in an o-club with passion. In conclusion, the main part of the survey participants are doing orienteering sports regularly in a club and think that the WOD is an great opportunity to make this sport more popular to the whole world. Nevertheless, there are untaken chances to support this kind of sport more, that e.g. schools get in touch early to introduce it to the young people or to reach more attention.

If you want to share your experiences with SPORTident equpiment or just want to give a feedback and personal opinion we are looking forward to your Mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

We keep our fingers crossed for all athletes and wish maximum success for all disciplines- Make the most of your sport. 

Another success for SPORTident in Switzerland

Switzerland is one of the pioneers in effective and fast implementing contactless punching technology to national o-events.

In October 2016 the swiss orienteering federation enabled all swiss orienteering events for contactless punching. Since the starting of o- season 2017, the athletes can chose if they want to use contactless punching with SIAC Air+ technology or an conventional punching with a standard SI-Card. This is possible, because the previous control units can be programmed to run in AIR+ mode and still allow conventional punching at the same time at the same station.

A big success for the SIAC Air+ technology was the Swiss championship for sprint orienteering last weekend in Windisch, CH. More than the half of athletes, 1047, were using the latest contactless punching system from Sportident with high satisfaction.

Thanks to all swiss supporters for this great success story.

Make the most of your sport.


Enthusiastic users of the SPORTident AIR+ technology at the Jan Kjellstrom Trophy 2017

The JK International Festival of Orienteering is held each Easter in a different part of the UK. With more than 2,500 participants, it is Britain and Ireland’s largest annual orienteering event, where SPORTident (both contactless and direct) has been used. This provided SPORTident an opportunity to show how effective our timing technology is for both organisers and competitors. The SIAC Card has been developed to work contactlessly with all existing SPORTident stations. Orienteers were able to use their traditional SI-Cards for direct punching in the stations or they could use a SIAC for contactless punching. Every orienteer was given the opportunity to hire a SIAC if they didn’t already own one. All juniors aged 18 or less - youngsters are the future for the sport - had the opportunity to test for FREE our contactless punching way, a fresh, exciting and modern experience. By the end of the weekend, parents had a good idea of the next Birthday/Christmas present for their children.

The weekend was a complete success for both orienteers and organisers. On some of the days up to 60% of orienteers were using a SIAC for contactless punching.   SPORTident would like to thank JK2017 for their visionary thinking and allowing us to showcase mixed punching at the largest orienteering event in the world so far.
