ShockBug Ad

Red, rugged and instantly recognisable, the ShockBug / G View, is quite simply the most cost-effective event recorder on the market. The ShockBug has three visual indications (LEDs) which will give instant visual indication of a shock above the trip level.

Capable of logging as many as 300 individual shock and vibration events over a 6 month period, (first 100 events per axis), the ShockBug is suitable for virtually all journey and storage profiles, helping users pinpoint when and where their shipment sustained damage. Moreover, the ShockBug delivers more accurate readings than any other device in its price range, and replaceable batteries effectively make its lifespan infinite.
