The TiltWatch XTR is a packaging indicator that monitors goods that require upright positioning during transportation. It is designed to be used only once and serves as a tamper-proof device. If the product is tilted beyond 80º, it will visually signal by turning red.

Tamper-Proof Tilt Indicator

Normal handling movements will not activate the packaging indicator. To enhance visibility, companion labels and alert stickers can be used with the tilt indicator. The packaging sensor is activated by removing the adhesive backing from the indicator.

If the cargo is tilted more than 80° or completely overturned, the sensor turns red, indicating it has exceeded the tilt limits. Once activated, avoid further tilting of the packaging.

Deter Mishandling Throughout the Supply Chain

Implementing this damage prevention solution reinforces proper handling procedures and encourages better material handling practices. It acts as a clear deterrent against mishandling throughout the supply chain.

The TiltWatch XTR indicator can be used in electronics, packaging, equipment, glass, furniture, and fixtures. For determining the direction and degree of tilt or if a complete overturn has occurred, the TiltWatch Plus is recommended.
