ShockWatch Impact & Environmental Recorders - ShockLog: RD298

Supplier: Shockwatch

This device records the date and time of up to 400 events.


It has several unique features, making it especially suitable for applications in which the cost of exposure to out-of-specification environmental influences is very high. The instrument is equally convenient for protecting high-value fixed or mobile installations, or characterizing shock and vibration during transportation.

In normal operation, the device checks the output of the sensors continuously, and dynamically records any impact above a preset level. This dynamic reloading mode offers high-resolution data capture (up to 2048 Hz) and wake-up within 1.5 ms of exceeding the threshold.

Optional accessories include an environmental indicator, and a remote accelerometer to record shock and vibration in areas away from where the device is mounted.

How does the Shocklog RD298 Work?

Innovative Software for Reliable Data and Analysis

The ShockLog and Micro ShockLog are offered with a comprehensive Windows-based software program that allows you to program your own wake-up, warning, alarm levels, and frequency of data collection. When a pre-programmed impact level is exceeded, data will be stored for future analysis. With the software, you can also configure the devices directly or via iButtons to extract data and generate reports and charts.
