Electronic punching (e-punching or EP) is a faster, better way to record your visit to each control on an orienteering course. Instead of carrying a paper card and punching it at each location, you wear a plastic e-stick, or "finger stick", which contains a microchip. At each control site, you insert the finger stick into a control unit, which records the control number and time onto the microchip.

When you finish the course, you download the data at a transfer station, and receive an instant printout of your time and splits. Even better, you can view compiled printouts that show everyone's splits for the course.

For detailed instructions and information on electronic punching, see "Guides & Forms" > "Guides: Electronic Punching".
