The Bushnell Velocity Speed Gun is ideal for zip line speed verification every day as well as for testing and verifying new installations. The Speed Gun is precise to within +/- 2 km/h and converts between mph and kph, making it simple to compare results to our Zipline braking charts. With the range, the operator can safely stand aside from approaching test weights or riders.
The Bushnell Velocity speed meter uses digital technology to deliver instantaneous speed measurements with an accuracy of up to +/- 2 km/h. It is a simple-use gun, where you just have to aim and shoot for all kinds of sports enthusiasts. The Bushnell speed indicating gun measures the speed of a baseball at 16-177 km / h at a distance of 27m from the ball (it can also be used to measure the speed of a shooting range) and the speed of a car of races at a speed of 16-322 km / h at a distance of 457m.
During zip line installation and testing there is inevitable variance in actual arrival speeds versus arrival speeds calculated by modeling. This difference can be attributed to friction, wind speed and direction, cable temperature, and cable tension. By measuring the true velocity of various rider weights, it’s possible to control landing area size and ensure the zipSTOP is being used within recommended parameters. Actual arrival speeds and arrival speeds predicted by modeling will invariably vary during zip line installation and testing. Friction, wind direction and speed, cable temperature, and cable strain are all possible causes of this variation. It is able to regulate the size of the landing area and make sure the zipSTOP is being used within advised limits by measuring the true velocity of different rider weights.
