SPTargets Turning Target and Running Man systems are supplied with a Receiver as standard equipment.

The photographs above show an SPTargets Wireless Remote Control Receiver for a 20-target fixed range system. The exact style of Receiver case used with any system, and its location, may vary depending upon the range configuration and is selected to be appropriate for each customer’s range.

The internal circuitry in an SPTargets Receiver will vary with its application but since there are no user adjustments required to the Receiver during operation this is not a consideration for the user. The SPTargets Receiver is designed for use with portable target systems, fixed target systems and the SPTargets Running Man system. In its portable mode the Receiver permits operation of portable target systems that can control up to 20 targets. In its fixed installation mode the Receiver can operate up to 24 targets, but the internal circuit boards can be duplicated so that the Receiver can operate any plausible number of targets.

The Receiver case contains the Receiver circuitry plus a 115 volt AC mains operated power supply which reduces the high voltage to a safe low level voltage of 12 or 24 volts DC, ensuring that no dangerous voltages are present at the target line.

The Receiver case is made of PVC plastic and it is certified to NEMA 6P standards for use in wet locations. The case can be fitted with mounting tabs to permit wall mounting.

Technical specifications

Design features

  • The Control Unit communicates with the Receiver via a wireless link.
  • The Control Unit and Receiver are normally adjusted to operate as a discrete pair of units.
  • The Control Unit/Receiver pair can be set to operate on any of 101 radio frequencies, totally eliminating interference concerns on a range with multiple target systems.
  • Conversely to the above, multiple Receivers can be configured to operate with a single Control Unit in one range area to permit special training scenarios. For example, one Control Unit could operate the targets on multiple ranges. 
  • The Receiver is capable of communicating with other range equipment, primarily the Targets, via wireless link, standard wired connections and by the use of fiber optic cables.
  • Receivers can be equipped with high-gain antennas thus extending wireless link range.
  • The use of fiber-optic techniques can increase target control range to approximately one mile.
  • The Receiver can be mounted anywhere within the reception range of the control unit. It does not need to be accessible from the firing range.
  • The Receiver can be powered from a standard 12-volt battery for portable use, or it can be powered from a mains operated power supply for fixed installation use.


  • Case: Commercial PVC plastic product rated to NEMA 6P.
  • Connectors: If required, black nylon shell, gold-plated contacts.

Weather resistance

  • Case: Weatherproof, screw closure and rubber O-ring seal 
    between the two halves of the case. Rated to NEMA 6P.
  • Connectors: If required, locking ring with O-ring seals.

Power requirements

  • The Receiver circuit board may be operated at either 12 volts DC or 24 volts DC. This power may be supplied from an internal 115 volt AC to DC power supply or from a 12-volt DC auto battery.


  • Over body of case (typical): 12”x12”x4” Weight
  • Typically 6 lbs. (Please note that as we customize the Receiver box and circuitry to customer needs, weight may vary.)
