The first data logger to monitor the shipment of goods in accordance with the IEC standard

The "Aspion G-Log 2" data logger from Germany-based Aspion GmbH is the first shock recorder on the market to implement the continuous shock/vibration test of the European transport standard EN IEC 60721-3-2:2018 with its classes 2M4 / 2M5 / 2M6 during transports. This standard specifies the common environmental influences to which products may be exposed during transport in their ready-for-shipment form. "Reliably detecting transport damage, verifying it simply and transparently according to recognised and agreed on rules in order to minimise risks and avert costs – this is no longer a pipe dream for supply chain managers and quality managers. With the implementation of transport standards in a low-cost and easy-to-use data logger, the proof of transport damage in multimodal transport becomes, for the first time, as simple and transparent as monitoring the cold chain," says Aspion Managing Director Martina Woehr.

The use of an international standard improves understanding among all parties involved in transport and eliminates misunderstandings. Specialist knowledge is no longer necessary. The procedure is simple: the manufacturer classifies or tests their product according to the standard/class for integrity under normal transport conditions, usually carried out during packaging tests in testing facilities. The data logger now monitors the transport for environmental conditions of the applied standard and directly indicates deviations in the data analysis. The result is either: the standard was complied with or it wasn’t. In the latter case, the recorded data enable experts to carry out an in-depth analysis of the exact sequence of impacting shocks or vibrations. They know that not only the amount of acceleration per axis is relevant, but also the duration of the shock or vibration.

The Aspion G-Log 2 data logger is the only device in its price class to document the course of a shock or vibration per axis in millisecond increments. This is made possible by an intelligent algorithm that ensures that the very first shock, as well as the other eight highest shocks and vibrations in the entire transport process, is available for analysis in this level of detail. All further shocks or vibrations are reliably logged by the data logger with date and time in a ring memory with their respective height and direction on all three axes.

The German specialists hope that the use of the shock recorders will lead to more conscious handling of goods by all those involved in their transport. "Our Aspion G-Log 2 creates evidence through the transparency of the stored data, which significantly simplifies claims processing – for shippers, transporters and, last but not least, insurers," says Woehr, adding: "With this innovation, we not only simplify the evidence in the event of a claim but also give our customers a clear competitive advantage."

Aspion presents the complete system for transport monitoring from September 28 to 30 in Nuremberg at the "Fachpack 21", Hall 7A, Stand 515d.
