How does it work?

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 wire or wireless communication frin your PC with 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.

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.

Monitor your transformer and receive GPS positions of the incidents

Cargolog® Impact Recorder euipped with GPS records acceleration, temperature, humidity and angles with GPS position, as well as time and date. The data logger is affixed directly on to your transformer and it provides you with information that shows how your products are handled throughout the entire logistics chain. The geographic position can be registered in time intervals and/or at high exceedance.


Receive data in real-time with GSM/GPRS Communication

React immediately when your transformer is subjected to mishandling. The Cargolog® Impact Recorder with GSM/GPRS communication, transmitts data in real time, and gives you instant information when an incident occurs. This is a cost-efficient solution that facilitates detailed supervision and gives you full control over your tranformer during transport.

Distribute and reduce costs

Free On-Board (FOB) is a common condition for delivery, associated with maritime transport, as defined in the Incoterms legal code. The terms and conditions of delivery are that part of the purchase agreement that regulates how costs and liabilities respecting the transport are to be distributed between seller and buyer. This touches upon questions about who will bear the costs associated with any transport damage and who will take out transport insurance. The Cargolog® Impact Recorder System is used to see when, and to what extent, transport damage has occurred and, thereby, it makes it possible to determine who is liable for remedying the damage, how the costs will be distributed and who will bear the costs for any delay. The information can be crucial when it comes to compensation from insurance companies.

By using the data collected over time and combining the measurement results with other tests, such as Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) and Site Acceptance Test (SAT), you can decide if further inspections are needed, on site or in the factory, as well as review potential areas for improvement by identifying the best method of transport, routes, packaging and storage alternatives. This is a long term and reusable product that gives rapid ROI.

Battery transport monitoring systems

Safe battery transportation is critical to protect consumer safety and the preservation of property. Hundreds of lithium-based battery fires have occurred in the past years. These fires have resulted in monetary fines worth tens of thousands of dollars per instance
