Impact Recorders

Source: ShockWatch

ShockWatch® ShockLog Impact & Environmental Recorders continually monitor and report in real time the shock, vibration and environmental conditions experienced by structures, facilities and equipment during transit, storage and operation. These products record the direction, amplitude, and duration of impact force.

Optional sensors record changes in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, tilt and roll. A GPS/ GPRS tracking module is available to pinpoint the location of mishandling or exposure to unfavorable conditions. ShockWatch recorders help deter, monitor and minimize damage.

ShockLog G-View is a low-cost option ideal for monitoring excursions when damage boundary conditions are known

ShockLog 208 offers an entry-level impact monitoring solution of time slots only.

ShockLog 248 records the date and time of up to 15 shock events, time slots, and summary data.

ShockLog 298 records the date and time of up to 870 shock and vibration events, time slots, and summary data.
