Megalink was founded by shooters with skills and experience in design and production of electronic computer based solutions. The first products were delivered in 1987 while the current company was officially founded in 1991. The development of the electronic targets started in 1993 and the first targets were sold in Norway in 1997. Since then, and after the quality was proven, several thousand customers has bought Megalink targets.
ML2000 Electronic targets
The ML2000 system provides a complete solution for electronic detection and presentation of shooting results. A few different target units can be used to cover a large range of shooting variants. Until 2014 all target units were based on sound wave measurements. A well proven and reliable technology with more than 30 years of history. in 2014 Megalink presented the optical shooting target, 3D-Score. 3D-Score is still the most accurate, robust, innovative and intelligent target on the market
The shot results are presented on a handy display unit located at the shooters stand. Competition staff operates the system with high quality Windows applications. The audience can follow the shooting on large screens using standard PC technology, or you can publish live on the internet.
Simple and flexible
The ML2000 system is based on handy modules with simple cabling. Installation can be done by the customers and the range can easily be expanded later. The use and maintenance of the system is easy and does not require special training. Large amounts can be saved with the ML2000 system, since the same equipment can be used in different configuration
The expectations are high for ranges with electronic shooting targets. We are therefore proud of all the feedback regarding excellent stability, accuracy and operation security. From the start we have paid attention to build in security mechanisms to offer a high degree of security for shot detection and result storage. Examples of different techniques are:
- Automatic storage of shot and event information in all units, target, monitor and the computer
- Guarantee for correct content and sequence for data sent between the units
- Hardware counter for monitoring sensor activity independent of software
- No central server that could potentially block the system, and potentially lose all results.
- Patented sound pressure detection at all sensors for all shots - excellent support for the rangemanager.
- Excellent phone support 24/7 worldwide - English. - Update of software is done by the customers with
updates available on Internet.
Complete scoring system solutions
Megalink can deliver complete solutions for scoring management for shooting. This includes electronic shooting targets, range management, scoring result system and support.
Each target unit detect and store shot information without need of contact with any other component in the system. Up to twenty target units are connected to a common power supply box. As an option the power supply box can be equipped with a lead battry and a charger. Due to extremely low power consumption, this battery is sufficient for several hours of operation without charging.
Connection boxes are mounted at the shooting stand for connection of the shooter monitors. A single 12V mains power converter will cover up to ten monitors.
A simple cable with one twisted pair is all that is required between the shooting stand and the targets for a segment with up to ten targets. By adding power supplies and cabling, several segments can be added to build large ranges.
For outdoor ranges we deliver surge protection for the communication line.
For competitions, a range management PC will be connected using a USB interface against the electronics. Our range management software provides a user friendly and powerful solution for capturing shots, controlling marking, correcting shooting mistakes and distributing results to back-office and audience systems.
