Selection Guide

  • Use the TiltWatch XTR to monitor where you want to know if the container or product has been tilted on its side (monitors when tilted over 80 deg)
  • Two TiltWatch XTR’s mounted on adjacent sides may be required if you wish to monitor tilting on all planes (i.e left to right and front to back) based on the type of container/product that you are monitoring. If there is no prospect of tilting in one direction then you would only require one TiltWatch XTR on the shipment.

 

FAQ's

What is a Tiltwatch?

Tiltwatch is a tip indicating device for goods that must remain upright to ensure intact delivery.

How do you activate the TiltWatch XTR ready for monitoring?

By peeling the adhesive backing from the device, you automatically activate the sensor and can then place it on your shipment.

How many TiltWatch XTR's do I need per shipment?

Two are required to monitor all planes mounted on adjacent sides of the shipment for products that could be tipped over in any direction. If tipping is only possible in one direction, then one TiltWatch XTR is fine.
