USER MANUAL for the
Shooting Chrony BALLISTIC PRINTER™
SHOOTING CHRONY BALLISTIC PRINTER™ works with
all Shooting Chrony Models and all Master Chrony Models, manufactured
and sold since January 1, 2000, and, starting with Serial # 157288.
The following Chrony Models manufactured and sold prior to that
date and Serial number also work with the CHRONY PRINTER:
The Alpha, Beta and Gamma Shooting Chronys and
the respective MasterChrony Models.
To operate the BALLISTIC CHRONY PRINTER,
it must be connected to one of the above Chrony chronographs.
To do this, the PRINTER comes with a 16
ft. interface cable (4 ft. with Master Chrony Models). Connect it
to the Stereo Jacks of the Chrony and PRINTER.
Your CHRONY PRINTER will print velocities
as measured by the Chrony and print statistics such as : Lo, Hi,
Average velocities, Extreme Spread and Standard Deviation. Your
CHRONY PRINTER can do this in two ways:
- Print as you shoot: In PRINT MODE (left light
on): It will print shot number and velocities as you shoot across
the Chrony. When done shooting a string of shots, press the STAT
button, and the PRINTER will print the
statistics of the string just fired.
- 2) Print from Chrony memory: In the P/NP MODE
(left light on): By pressing the STAT/VEL button: It prints statistics
first, and then shot numbers and velocities in reverse order;
i.e. it will print the last shot first and the first shot last
from data stored in Chrony memory.
FEED button: to feed paper continuously;
TEST/ON button: will turn PRINTER ON
and test the availability of battery power. If the PRINTER
prints slow or, if PRINTER keeps printing
on one spot, batteries are getting low. OFF button: will turn
PRINTER OFF and reset communications
and software on PRINTER.
||The CHRONY PRINTER
comes with 6-Volt AC Adapter (500mA), that runs from 120 Volts house
current. It can also work with 4 (AA) Batteries (NOT INCLUDED).
Make sure Printer power is OFF when connecting or disconnecting
|This paper should be fed into the printing
element by sliding it at the bottom of the PRINTER towards the printing
element. Be patient. When paper comes to a stop, hold it there and
push the FEED button. When fed correctly, the printing mechanism will
pull the paper through the printing element
TO GET STARTED
Make sure PRINTER and CHRONY
are turned off;
Mount CHRONY on a tripod (or
table) and place PRINTER within easy reach anywhere on the shooting
Connect PRINTER and CHRONY with
Keep in mind, that the FU (Function)
button and the ST (String) button on the PRINTER have the same
function as the FU and ST buttons on the BETA and GAMMA CHRONYS.
By connecting the PRINTER to the CHRONY, both are now interfaced,
and the PRINTER can be used in place of a REMOTE CONTROL.
By pushing the ST button, one moves one String up. However,
by doing so,the PRINTER will have switched itself into the NO
PRINT-mode and the light on the left hand side will be off and
it will not print the String Number and the number of shots.
To get back into the PRINT-mode, push the P/NP button; the light
on the left hand side will come on, and the PRINTER will be
in PRINT-mode again.
To avoid the above situation, one can get better results by
pushing the OFF and STAT buttons simultaneously to move to the
next higher String. To move to the next lower String, push the
STAT/VEL and the P/NP buttons simultaneously or at the same
time. By doing this, the PRINTER will print the String Number
as well as the number of shots on that particular String.
The NO PRINT-mode is used, when
reviewing velocities and statistics with the FU button but,
without activating the PRINTER
The F-1 Chrony has no FU or ST
buttons. Reviewing velocities and statistics with the F-1 Chrony
can only be done with a Remote Control or,with the FU button
of the PRINTER. The Alpha Chrony has no ST button. To start
a new String, both Models have to be turned off first and then
When preparing the set-up, follow
safety instructions as explained in USER MANUAL of your CHRONY

- Start shooting. Do not shoot faster than PRINTER
can print. If you do, it will skip printing velocities.
- To print statistics, push the STAT button.
- To print velocities and statistics from CHRONY-PRINTER
memory, press STAT/VEL button and PRINTER will print statistics
first and then velocities: printing last velocity first and first

to target or file. The printing was done on real paper and therefore
will last indefinitely. This is now a document, providing a permanent
Be sure that + and - poles of each battery are facing
in the right direction.
NOTE the following to avoid battery leakage and
damage to the unit:
- Never mix different battery types;
- Don’t mix old batteries with new ones;
- Never leave dead batteries installed in the unit;
- Remove batteries when you have no plans to use
the PRINTER for a long time;
- Do not expose batteries to heat; do not let them
become shorted; do not try to take them apart; Use Alkaline batteries
