The New ShockWatch 2 impact monitor helps shippers reduce costs and accurately assign accountability for damage.
With a single glance at the new ShockWatch 2 Impact Indicator, you know whether a shipment was handled roughly.
The indicator is tamperproof and serialized with each indicator having a unique serial number that can be referenced on all shipping paperwork, providing indisputable evidence of the handling conditions
throughout the shipments travel. They also come with a label to be attached to your bill of lading to alert the shipper that they are picking up a monitored item. They also come with an additional label the same color as the Shockwatch 2 that you can either attach at the same location where you mounted the Shockwatch 2 or on another area to call attention to the fact there is a Shockwatch 2 attached to the shipment.
The original Shockwatch Label although a great product incorporates a small diameter glass tube that contains 2 chemicals that are held apart by surface tension. If the Shockwatch Label receives an impact greater than its G force rating, the 2 chemicals mix together and turn a bright Red color to alert you that the Shockwatch Label
has triggered. Because of their sensitivity and the fact that the Shockwatch Label is always “on” they require gentle handling and shipping so that they don’t accidentally trigger before you actually attach them to your shipment. This also explains why the Yellow 25 G and the Purple 37 G versions of the Shockwatch Label are the most difficult to handle and ship to you.
The New ShockWatch 2 Impact Indicator operates on a mechanical design that is user armed at the moment it is attached to the shipment, so customers are assured that it monitors only the impacts that occurred after it was applied to their packages. Because the Shockwatch 2 labels are not able to be triggered until you actually attach them to a shipment, they are easy to handle and ship. Because of their new design they are also able to be made in 5G, 10G, 15G, 25 G, 37G, 50G and 75G.
The Shockwatch 2 mounts to the outside of packages or containers and turns red only when impacts exceed the productís threshold.
Recipients should check the indicator
immediately and if it shows Red they will know that their shipment has received a significant impact and that they should inspect the shipment carefully.
Carriers viewing the Indicator on the shipment as well as the indicator serial number noted on the paperwork have good reason to handle packages more carefully because they know damage can be traced to them and they can be held accountable.
