Cargolog® Impact Recorder System
Impact Recorder, Shock Recorder for transformers – This is how it works!
Set up Impact Recorder
Cargolog® Impact Recorder is used for supervision of transformers during transport to measure and register potential damages. Before transport the impact recorder is pre-programmed with acceptable values for the measuring channels you want to register during transport. This is done with your PC from CargoLog® PC software. This means that for each journey, you can set which measurement channels will be used and adjust these based on the goods’ prerequisites, method of transport and period of time.
Measure and register
When the impact recorder is set up, affix the impact recorder to your power transformer, allowing it to follow throughout the entire logistics chain. The Impact Recorder is affixed with an attachment on the outside and/or inside the power transformer. All measurement data is stored and protected electronically in an internal memory, which means that it is not lost if your battery loses power during transportation. All measurements include the time, as well as duration and can be password protected.
At the arrival of the power transformer you will immediately be able to check for exceeded limits by checking the LED lights on your impact recorder. The measuring results can be collected from your impact recorder with Cargolog® PC software to your PC, alternatively you can use your smartphone to transfer data via bluetooth from your impact recorder to our APP. All measuring results are then displayed in a diagram and can be analyzed second by second.
