The Revolution in Pigeon Sport

The BENZING M1 clocking device uniquely combines the simplest operation with technological complexity, and in this respect is therefore a revolutionary development of pigeon clocks. Rubberised keys, an extra large LED display and a revolutionary “self-help” user guidance system: With these features, the BENZING M1 will inspire enthusiasm in all pigeon fanciers who value simple and logical operation of their clock.

Easy to learn menu guidance system allows you to concentrate on enjoying pigeon racing.
The display is double the size of that in the atis TOP in order to provide even more information for the fancier.
BENZING M1 can handle up to 1,000 pigeons simultaneously while up to four fanciers can share the clock. Each fancier can independently access the data for his own pigeons and in the club the BENZING M1 behaves as if each fancier had his own clocking device. New in 2005: Every fancier can set the BENZING M1 in the club from single to multi-fancier mode.
USB-interface for connection to a PC to read out the last race and training flights. This data can be processed on the PC, printed out or imported into other programs. The interface is open and we will support any developer who wishes to use this data.
The electronic system used is setting standards for the future and has 10 times the computing power of comparable competitor products. The high computing power results directly in a faster and more reliable processing of arrival times. In addition to this, the BENZING M1 is prepared for all future requirements of the associations.
The software in the BENZING M1 can be easily updated by every fancier himself.
The fancier can easily test all antennae himself. This is even possible directly before the arrival of the pigeons.
The start times for every flight can be entered in order to display the current flight speed of each pigeon. A special feature of the BENZING M1 is the "countdown" of the speed on the display. This maximises the excitement when the speed approaches the expected value.
The BENZING M1 can also be used on the road without a mains connection. All flight results can be called up simply and quickly at any time. And if you want to, you can name the pigeons from your favourite chair or li-lo without electric cables.
Improved recognition of all connected antennae with a rapid turbo start if the number of antennae doesn't change


  • 1x DB15(F) to connect the antenna cable
  • 1x USB for PC

PLEASE NOTE: To get the programm working on WIN Vista, WIN 7, and WIN 8 it is necessary to run the programm as administrator. You can do this by a right click onto the desktop icon of the programm and choose “Run as administrator”on the drop down menu. 

The M1 must be equipped with the software version 2.0 or higher, and the M1 must be linked with the Station when it is connected for the very first time (manipulation protection).

Put the CD into the drive and connect the M1 to a USB port. First, install the correct USB driver from the CD, then install the desired software - ready to go!

Change printer settings in the atis TOP or M1. In the atis TOP menu, go to "Settings" and then make the appropriate changes under "Printer". In the M1, go to MENU ->SYSTEM -> Printer.

The M1 is connected in the Clubset and the CAN TIME is selected under OTHER. The setting is either performed manually or synchronised with a radio clock (if a radio clock is connected and it receives a signal).

Yes, all you need to do is terminate and then release this flight prior to the basketing (if the printer does not work, for example).

Not all of the races or training flights have been completed. Date/time cannot be modified.

Install the BENZING M1 download software on the PC (copy it from the utility CD or download it from the website) and run it, connect the M1 to the PC via a USB cable (power supply of the M1). The PC identifies the M1 as new hardware (only when installing for the very first time), then select the required USB driver (download it from the utility CD or the website) and when the M1 is identified, first read the M1 with the connect button. Then, locate and select the desired software on your PC's hard disk (for example version 02.21) with the Select File button. Finally, begin the download. (DO NOT DISCONNECT during the download procedure!)

Yes, the M1 can easily be updated at home, using the provided USB cable and the download software on a CD. Firmware can be downloaded directly from the Internet site.

No, this is impossible, as we only address a single club antenna in the protocol.

From the version 01.03 onwards, the M1 can be reconfigured directly at the pigeon loft. It is possible to administer up to four fanciers. (under OTHER->SETTINGS ->MULTIPLE FANCIERS, the setting can be reconfigured from a single fancier to multiple fanciers). For older versions, the unit must be brought to the dealer, who in turn is the only one that is able to reconfigure the unit.

Der Druckerknoten des atis TOP funktioniert auch für das M1 (zu Hause). Es können aber auch über den USB-Anschluss alle Wettflugdaten in den PC übertragen (beigelegte CD ab WIN2000 und höher) und von dort dann ausgedruckt werden!

No, there is no such blocking. The reading and writing of data is possible. Of course, pigeons participating in a race or training are blocked. It is not possible to change anything anymore regarding those pigeons!

In the pigeon loft, it is possible to reset the M1 to factory settings! Ensure that all of the data has been saved to the PC, as everything will be erased (statistics, fancier data, pigeon data).

The M1 displays a text stating whether the radio clock or the internal CAN clock was used for synchronisation. Furthermore, if the CAN clock is being used, it is asked as to whether this really is the correct time!

Freeing is not possible, but resetting is, if the wrong pigeon has been basketed!

The CAN time is only used if the radio clock is not connected or is not sending a signal (M1 receives no signal from the radio clock). In this case, M1 automatically uses the CAN time. During authorisation, it is once more asked as to whether the CAN time is okay. On the M1, a text is displayed, stating whether it was synchronised with the radio clock or the CAN clock.

It is not possible to print directly from the M1 (via USB to the printer), but the data can be uploaded to a PC via a USB cable (BENZING USB print and history software) and then printed from there!

Not all of the races or trainings have been completed. Date/time cannot be modified.

The training flight was commenced before all of the pigeons had been assigned or the pigeons are not entered, because bets are being placed on them.

No, without the M1, a SMS cannot be sent when a pigeon arrives. This requires both the M1 and the BENZING Station.

The BENZING M1 is equipped with a RTC (Real Time Clock), which is powered by an internal battery. This battery should be substituded after a specified time of operation in order to ensure the correct time.

Therefore, please get in touch with an official BENZING partner in your country to organize a battery change. Since this is a safety-related component, such an exchange can not be performed at home.
