- The sensors are not affected by the weather. Rain, snow, dirt etc. will not reach the sensors, and cannot alter the sensors performance.
- The air inside the chamber is not moving, ensuring optimal accuracy. With an open system, the accuracy of the target will suffer in wind.
- The sensors inside target will only detect projectiles passing through that specific target. With an open system, any sensor within a certain distance will detect any shot, also from neighbor lanes. This will lead to “missing” shots and potential inaccurate scoring – especially on rapid fire stages.
Closed chamber acoustic targets are still the best and most reliable way to make high power electronic targets. They are a bit more expensive than open systems, but those should not be considered if reliability is of concern.
