ShockLog® 298 is an impact data logger designed to monitor and record impact, shock, vibration and environmental conditions of equipment and structure during use, transit and storage. When a potential impact occurs, the ShockLog® 298 will send an alert to its recipients and operators, calling for an immediate inspection and remediation.

The data logger features frequency filters and a user-programmable impact scale to provide users with flexibility. Able to showcase peak value (time slot) and summary of period journey profile data, it can also record up to 870 events of detailed impact curves and 262,000 time slots. The cable-free data logger contains sensors to record direction, amplitude and duration of impact force, peak acceleration values for X, Y and Z axis on a time basis.

Users can access the data via USB connection or iButton® interface. This interface enables users to set up, download and operate the ShockLog® 298 with ease, providing a full journey report that can be downloaded while keeping the device secure and tamperproof. In addition, users can gain complete programming control, and full data access through the Windows®-based ShockLog software.

With the obtained recorded data, users can determine the baseline damage boundaries, identify and assign accountability for mishandled goods during shipping, operation and storage. In addition, the analysis of data will help discover new opportunities for improvement in terms of product packaging, loading process, mode of transport and carriers.

Optional sensors can be customised to enhance the function of the ShockLog® 298, providing extended intelligence and data recording:

  • ShockLog ® Cellular for real-time, out of tolerance condition alerts
