ShockLog™ Shock Recorder Model RD298

The RD298 ShockLog is a programmable, re usable electronic, tri-axial shock recorder designed specifically to help organisations to reduce the cost of damage to goods whether in production, transit or storage.

A battery life of up to 12 months allows you to understand the entire supply chain life of your product and the conditions it experiences. More importantly it tells you when incorrect physical handling, poor quality packaging or inappropriate temperature and humidity control will have damaged the quality of your product, your reputation and your cash flow.

The comprehensive Windows™ based software programme allows you to programme your own wake up, warning and alarm levels and frequency of data collection. When a programmed impact level is exceeded a visual alarm will alert you as well as storing the data for future analysis.


ShockLog provides you with:

The when, where and how
Real time date stamping identifies when a shock has occurred. When combined with the axis of impact, a clear picture of the likely damaging event emerges allowing effective remedial action to be taken.

Detailed arbitration evidence
ShockLog is vital for determining at what point during a journey damage may have occurred. As the information is clear, accurate and incontestable, it is invaluable in arbitration by avoiding unnecessary delays in apportioning responsibility.

A visible deterrent
The sheer presence of ShockLog acts as a clear indication that your products are being monitored. By involving your staff, carriers and customers in the monitoring programme, inappropriate handling or storage can be minimised.




A means to audits carrier and routing efficiency
ShockLog's sophisticated monitoring capability helps to analyse the cause of persistent damage in transit. Damage that could be avoided by a simple change of route, handling procedure or even carrier.

An aid to intelligent packaging design
Damage can be caused by many different factors according to the transportation method used. ShockLog's detailed record of movement, vibration, temperature, humidity and pressure can identify how this damage occurred and help with the development of the most appropriate and cost effective packaging solution.

Reduced administration and field service costs
Effective and timely identification of likely damage reduces the time spent on site by your service and installation teams and allows them to concentrate on revenue generating activities.

Rapid identification of staff training needs
Routine analysis of the ShockLog data will identify potentially damaging handling or storage situations before they become critical, allowing you to act accordingly.

An extension to your quality image
Your in house or ISO quality programme can now extend beyond your despatch bay, whilst providing clear evidence to your customer of the care and commitment you have to them.
