ShockWatch RFID

Shock watch RFID is an impact indicator fitted with a passive RFID chip in every unit, scanned with a standard RFID reader to detect any damage before entering the assembly line. It allows companies to leverage the inventory tracking benefits of RFID and the benefits of an impact monitoring program.

Like ShockWatch 2, it is field-armable, tamper-proof and provides visual alerts to you by turning red when your product has been dropped or mishandled during the transit.

The RFID technology in ShockWatch RFID helps improve inventory tracking processes in the supply chain and reduce the damage of up to 60% without batteries and wires. It is easily possible to track the trouble spots in the supply chain and improve as it is armed with data.

The RFID enables the receiver to be notified of any potential damaging impact made. If the ShockWatch RFID has activated, the receiver will be alerted for further inspection. Otherwise, shipment can be moved into saleable inventory.
