ShockLog® 298

ShockLog® 298 Impact Data Logger monitors and records impact, shock, vibration, and environmental conditions when in use during transit or storage. Alerts will be sent to recipients and operators when goods and equipment might have potentially impacted, calling for an immediate inspection.

This device features a user-programmable impact scale and frequency filters, providing flexibility for users. The device will showcase peak value (time slot) and summarise period journey profile data. With the capacity of recording detailed impact curves of up to 870 events and 262,000 slots, this cable-free data logger contains sensors to record direction, amplitude, and duration of impact force, peak acceleration values for X, Y, and Z-axis on a time basis.

The recorded data in the logger can be accessed via a USB connection or iButton® interface. The iButton® enables users to set up, download easily, and operate the ShockLog® 298 data logger. Through the iButton interface, a complete journey report can be downloaded while keeping the unit secure and tamperproof. Also, users can gain complete programming control and full data access through the Windows®-based ShockLog software.

With the recorded data, users will determine baseline damage boundaries, identify and assign accountability for mishandled goods during shipping, operation, and storage. Also, data analysis will help identify opportunities for improvement for product packaging, the loading process, carriers, or mode of transport to reduce costs. To enhance the capabilities of the ShockLog® 298, the ShockLog® 298 offers optional sensors that can be customised to provide extended intelligence and data recording:

  • Temperature, humidity, pressure, tilt, and roll sensors
  • ShockLog ® Cellular for real-time, out of tolerance condition alerts
  • ShockLog® Satellite to record positioning, time, and location for every event and summary interval through a GPS module.
  • Radio Frequency (RF) module that allows transmission and retrieval of information to an RF Base Station Module attached to a PC
