g-View offers a simple impact recorder solution to monitor where assets have been mishandled in transport or storage.
ShockLog 208
The ShockLog 208 impact recorder is for applications that only require basic acceleration values to be reported.
ShockLog 248
ShockWatch’s programmable impact recorder measures and records up to 15 impact events. Optional environmental sensor capability provides expanded product protection.
ShockLog 298
The ShockLog 298 monitoring device offers advanced, programmable impact and environmental recorder technology for superior protection during use, storage or transit.

Impact Recorders

ShockWatch® ShockLog Impact & Environmental Recorders continually monitor and report in real time the shock, vibration and environmental conditions experienced by structures, facilities and equipment during transit, storage and operation. These products record the direction, amplitude, and duration of impact force.

Optional sensors record changes in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, tilt and roll. A GPS/ GPRS tracking module is available to pinpoint the location of mishandling or exposure to unfavorable conditions. ShockWatch recorders help deter, monitor and minimize damage.

ShockLog G-View is a low-cost option ideal for monitoring excursions when damage boundary conditions are known

ShockLog 208 offers an entry-level impact monitoring solution of time slots only.

ShockLog 248 records the date and time of up to 15 shock events, time slots, and summary data.

ShockLog 298 records the date and time of up to 870 shock and vibration events, time slots, and summary data.


  • Decreases costs related to damage incurred during operation, shipping, handling, and storage
  • Helps identify optimal modes of transportation, routes, packaging, storage options, and operational conditions through full-journey profiling
  • Deters improper handling and operation
  • Allows sender to respond to mishandling of shipments before customer delivery
