The ShockLog Satellite Impact Recording and Tracking System combines the flagship ShockLog® 298 Impact Recorder and a satellite communication module to deliver outstanding impact recording, real-time reporting and asset location. The system is pre-programmed with parameters optimised for your asset. Want to customize the impact recorder settings in house? The ShockLog 298 has a user-programmable impact scale and frequency filters, offering the most versatile option for users. Monitor and report impact events, vibration and internal temperature as well as peak value (time slot) and summary period journey profile data. Know when and where unacceptable conditions have been encountered and get location updates every four hours.

Protect Your High Value Assets

Reduce Costs by Identifying Incidents Before Final Delivery or Installation
With the ShockLog Satellite Impact Recording and Tracking System, you can receive alerts of unacceptable conditions that your product has encountered. These conditions may affect the performance or safety of your product. Knowing what your product experienced on its journey allows you to act before a shipment is received or plan remediation before the final installation of the asset in the field.

Full Journey Analysis
When the journey has concluded, the ShockLog 298 desktop software allows you to download and analyze the full data set. The ShockLog Report View provides an overview of the entire journey, peak acceleration values for all three axes as well as detailed impact curves. Zoom in for a closer look at specific impacts or deport the data into programs such as Matlab for more detailed analysis.

Locate Valuable Assets 24/7 via SPOTSEE Cloud

During the journey, the ShockLog Satellite utilizes a satellite network to alert you when a potentially damaging impact has occurred. With the web-hosted software, you can access the location information of your shipment. Built in reporting tools allow you to see impacts over time as well as a histogram of the number of impacts in predetermined ranges.

Location Map

The map will show the locations of the selected ShockLog Satellite. Alarm and summary location pins will be clustered by proximity. Alarm pins will be displayed in red while summary pins will be displayed in blue. Pins displayed with a number in them can be clicked and the map will zoom in until you can see individual pins. A red heat map around the pins indicates that there is at least one alarm within that cluster.

Alarm and Summaries list

A list of alarms and summaries for the unit are shown on the right side of the Location Map. The alarm shows the axis as well as the value recorded on the axis. Summaries show the total number of alarms reported in the summary period setup in the ShockLog (e.g 1 hour).

ShockTrak Spotsee Cloud Alarms and Summaries list

Alarms over time graph

A graph of impact alarms over time is displayed. Each alarm is represented in the x, y, and/or z axis. Hover the cursor over the bars in the Alarms over Time graph to see the individual impact values.

Impact Histogram graph

This graph will show you how many impacts occurred over a certain impact threshold. The graph divides the impact values into bins. Each bar on the graph represents the number times an impact occurred over a certain threshold.
In the example below, there was one impact 10G or less in the y-axis, two impacts of 10G or less in the z-axis and two impacts between 11 and 20G in the y-axis.
