ShockWatch RFID combines the benefits of RFID inventory tracking with an indication of unacceptable handling. Each ShockWatch RFID unit has been fitted with a passive RFID chip which can be scanned with any standard RFID reader to catch damage before it enters the assembly line.
- Reduce damage by 40-60% by implementing a monitoring program that changes behaviour
- Easy to add to your current RFID program
- Used by the best supply chains around the world
- No wires or batteries
Based on the impact technology of the ShockWatch 2, ShockWatch RFID is a go/no-go device that will indicate if products have been mishandled during transit or in storage. The indicators are field armable, tamperproof and turn red when an impact beyond a specific threshold has occurred.

Shockwatch RFID Selection Guide
There are two things you need to know to begin selecting a ShockWatch RFID impact indicator sensitivity: shipment size (m³) and weight (kgs).
The selection guide should always be used as a starting point only. The ShockWatch 2 that will be best suited to your application will also take into account product fragility and packaging.
A Complete ShockWatch RFID Impact Indicator Program
The ShockWatch Program is more than just an impact indicator. A key element in the success of using ShockWatch RFID is companion tools. When used in conjunction with companion labels, alert tape and communication tools, ShockWatch RFID impact indicators become a highly effective damage reduction and prevention program.
Implementation of this program provides psychological reinforcement of proper handling procedures and changes the behaviour of material handlers. It provides a highly visible deterrent to mishandling throughout the supply chain and encourages package handlers to be more conscious of their behaviour and surroundings.
Success of the ShockWatch Program is measured by a reduction in damage. Preventing mishandling is the key to damage reduction.
