I think Trackmate still sells the guide flag sensors.

Nice that you can order the LED dimension.  It can still be adjusted with routing a recess in the bottom of the track and/or shimming with foam tape and screw tension as needed IF you have a non-'standard' thickness deck.  Just get the top of the sensors to touch the bottom of the braid - not raising the braid level.

with these sensors, don't install them on the fast part of the track, the flag may not trigger the sensor

Mike - the single sensors are used for all data collection points including end of strip MPH.  The dual sensor board is used at the staging lights.  Infared LEDs require a cast black/graphite/opaque flag. Dyed black (or any color) will not work right in all cases..
