Description

An impact data logger used to monitor and record impact, shock, vibration and environmental conditions subjected to any structure and equipment, during use, transit and storage. The ShockLog® 298 sends an alert to its operators and recipient upon the detection of potential impact, calling for an immediate inspection and remediation.

The data logger features a user-programmable impact scale and frequency filters, providing users with flexibility. It also showcases peak value (time slot) and summary of period journey profile data. This cable-free data longer is equipped with sensors to record direction, amplitude, and duration of impact force, peak acceleration values for X, Y and Z-axis on a time basis. It features a capacity of recording these detailed impact curves of up to 870 events and 262,000 time slots.

The recorded data can be accessed via a USB connection or iButton® interface. This interface provides easy setup, download and operation of the ShockLog® 298. Through the interface, a full journey report can also be downloaded while keeping the unit secured and tamperproof. In addition, users can gain complete programming control, and full data access through the Windows®-based ShockLog software.

With the recorded data, it helps users to determine baseline damage boundaries, identify and assign accountability for mishandled and damaged goods during use, transit and storage. Furthermore, the analysis of these data also helps to identify opportunities for improvement for the loading process, product packaging, carriers or mode of transport to improve cost and minimise damage.

Optional sensors can also be customised to enhance the functions of the ShockLog®, providing extended intelligence and data recording.
