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.
ASPION, based at the technology location Karlsruhe in Germany, has been developing and marketing smart, energy-optimised sensors with wireless communication and maximum ease of use since 2011. The focus of product development is the monitoring and risk protection of valuable industrial goods in global delivery traffic. The multiple award-winning, cost-effective ASPION data loggers for shock and climate for transport monitoring ensure significant cost and time savings for customers, not only in the event of damage. More than 500 well-known industrial customers from many industries benefit from the worldwide use of the data logger "Made in Germany".
