The Labradar Chronograph continually measures the velocities of your rifle, pistol, shotgun (slugs), arrows, or pellets up to 100 yards depending upon the size of the bullet. Smaller bullets do not track as far as large bullets. Multiple distances for velocity display are user definable on the unit. LabRadar measures velocities up to 3,900 FPS. with 0.1% accuracy using six AA batteries. Labradar is not dependent on any light source and can be used indoors/outdoors in all weather conditions. It is positioned to the side of the weapon, not downrange where other systems are prone to damage. Each shot series provides Hi, Lo, Average, ES, and SD. Individual shots display velocities at the muzzle and up to five additional distances along with Kinetic Energy at each distance. The data is downloadable via USB or 16GB or more SD card. Built in IPSC / IDPA Power Factor Calculator.

How do I use Labradar with 22 rimfire, Airguns, or Suppressors?
Since there is very little muzzle blast pressure emitted from 22 rimfires, Airguns, or suppressed firearms you may need to place Labradar approximately 3 inches in front of the muzzle and approximately 3 inches to the side. If your unit still will not trigger due to the low muzzle blast you can purchase the Air Gun Adapter to assist in triggering the radar. labradar for sale
How does LabRadar work?
LabRadar velocity measurements are based on Continuous Wave Doppler Radar and advanced Digital Signal Processing Technologies.
My radar triggers but I do not get a velocity reading.
When you get an error message that the projectile was not acquired it is usually due to poor alignment of the radar or muzzle blast debris interfering with the radar reflecting off of the bullet. To resolve this you can move your muzzle farther forward and farther to the side. Be sure to adjust the Projectile Offset distance when moving farther to the side. You can confirm your alignment by looking through a small diameter tube placed in the sighting notch. labradar for sale
Where should my muzzle be positioned?
Ideally, you should place your muzzle even with the side of the unit and between the top and bottom corners. If you have a muzzle brake you should place it a few inches in front of the radar to prevent the direct muzzle blast from impacting the unit. Be sure to set your Projectile Offset to the correct distance in the preferences menu.
Can Labradar be placed downrange?
Labradar is designed to be set beside the shooter as it is triggered by the weapon’s muzzle blast. Currently, it is not possible to trigger the radar at a downrange location.
Is it safe to use?
Yes, LabRadar was designed for and is in compliance with the United States FCC Regulations, CE requirements, and Canada requirements.
Can I use it at an Indoor Range?
Labradar will work in most indoor ranges. You will need at least 50 feet since the beam is quite small at those distances. It may not work if you are shooting in a tunnel or tube as the radar will be reflecting off of those surfaces.
How accurate is it?
LabRadar has an accuracy of 0.1%.
Will it work in the hot, cold, cloudy, sunny, shade or changing light conditions, rain, indoors, outdoors?
Yes, unlike most light sensing chronographs LabRadar is not affected by these environmental conditions.
If you’re not in the center of the radar beam is the accuracy diminished?
No, but you will be able to track the bullet farther if you in the center of the beam.
Does it work on batteries?
Yes. LabRadar uses 6 AA-type batteries. It can also be powered from an external USB power pack.
What range performance can one expect with labradar chronograph?
In general, labradar will typically measure the velocity of a 7.62 mm projectile from the muzzle up to 100 yards. After extensive testing of a variety of calibers, you can expect to obtain velocities at these distances when in the Standard Power Mode. The low Power setting will have about 30% less tracking*.
.177 Pellet – 30 yards;
.177 BB – 30 yards;
22 LR – 60 yards;
223 – 60 yards;
270 – 70 yards;
308 – 80 to 100 yards;
9mm – 130 yards;
40 S&W – 130 yards;
45 ACP – 130 yards;
500 S&W – 130 yards;
12 gauge Slug – 90 yards;
Paint Ball – 50 yards;
Arrows – 50 yards;
* Since every bullet has a different profile your results may vary. In general, the larger the base (excluding the boat tail) the great the distance the projectile can be acquired.
What is the warranty period?
One year from the date of purchase.
What data does labradar chronograph provide?
Labradar chronograph provides minimum/maximum velocities, extreme spread, average velocity, and standard deviation of a shot series. Velocities are constantly tracked and recorded at various distances along the flight path. The user will be able to define the distances he would like the velocities displayed. You will also be able to download all the shot and series data to a CSV file.
How reliable is the labradar chronograph?
Infinition, the company that created and manufactures the labradar chronograph has been designing and manufacturing high end instrumentation radars for more than a decade. Infiniti’s high end radars are used daily by professionals at various Research Centers, Ballistic Laboratories, and Proving Grounds around the world. The LabRadar has been built from the same technology inside Infinition’s high end radars and brings that technology into the hands of the shooters and hunters, providing an accurate and reliable way to measure the velocity of various projectiles. labradar for sale
Can the labradar chronograph be used with bows and crossbows?
Yes, when used in the Doppler mode the arrow acts as the trigger when it enters the radar beam. This is generally 6-10 feet down range. It will continue to track the arrow for approximately 60 yards. When in the Trigger Mode an adapter can be used on the bow to communicate with LabRadar. The adapter will trigger the radar in the release of the arrow. labradar for sale
At what distances will labradar chronograph report velocities
Labradar chronograph will report the muzzle velocity and up to five other velocities at the distances that you select in increments of one (1). You will be able to select these distances prior to shooting. You can select feet, yards, meters, etc. Velocities can also be reported in metric and standard values.
Does labradar chronograph work with shotguns
Currently labradar chronograph will obtain velocities from most Slug type projectiles. At this time it will not read multiple pellet projectiles.
