Shock and vibration data loggers are typically deployed in various applications by scientists, researchers, manufacturers and transportation experts. Shock data loggers monitor a range of activities with some having the additional ability to track temperature, humidity and pressure.
Data Logger Store supplies shock data loggers for tracking geological developments such as earthquakes. However, there are other subtler uses of data loggers that measure shock and vibration, providing much-needed data on the stability of environments where lack of motion is essential.
Shock and vibration data loggers are often used to track movement in areas where keeping things stable is a critical requirement. These environments may include moving vehicles, trucks, containers and ships, where the movement of cargo can be dangerous, resulting in damage, lost income, delays and general problems. By monitoring these events, the data logger can inform the user where improvements need to be made in vehicle stability, packaging and padding, allowing goods to remain suspended in a protective environment and ensuring that they arrive safely and without damage.
Shock and vibration detectors are also used in production environments where delicate instrumentation, custom fabrications and electronics equipment can all be damaged by excessive motion. Data loggers can pinpoint the problem area so that adjustments can be made to overcome the hidden challenges of producing sensitive precision goods.
The medical environment also relies upon shock and vibration data sensors to monitor patients who must remain immobilised for long periods of time.
Well designed shock and vibration data loggers are rugged and can be deployed in remote areas without regard to temperature, water or other hazards that may affect the collected results. A solid-state memory and a long-term battery capable of operating for hours on end, without draining or affecting the memory already logged are essential in these data loggers.
Data Logger Store offers a selection of rugged and reliable MadgeTech shock data loggers, along with world class data logging software.
