LAMERHOLM Electronics, represented by Warsash Scientific , has introduced the RD317 ShockLog, an "on-site" interfacing, programmable, re-usable electronic tri-axial shock recorder designed specifically to help organisations reduce the cost of damage to goods, whether in production, transit or storage.
The RD317 is a micro-sized version of the RD298 and features a battery life of up to nine months which allows the entire supply chain of the product and the conditions it experiences, to be monitored and recorded.
More importantly it can determine exactly when incorrect physical handling, poor quality packaging or inappropriate temperature and humidity control may have damaged the quality of the product.
Unique iButton interfacing allows reports to be downloaded "on-site" without the use of a PC.
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.
The ShockLog RD317 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.
