  3. Data loggers for vibrations – optimum monitoring

Shock data loggers

Data loggers are practical aids. They are designed in such a way as to record and store measurement data over a defined period of time. These data can then be compared with each other.

Optimum transport monitoring

There are various areas in industry which require the use of data loggers. The shock datalogger is a real asset in this respect. In this way, uninterrupted documentation from manufacture, via transport, through to delivery is important, so that quality controls can be carried out.

Various factors can have an impact on the quality of goods. These also include vibrations in transit. Vibration loggers were developed specifically to record these events. You can then detect whether products have been exposed to strong vibrations during transport and if another quality control is required.

These features make data monitoring easier:

  • unlimited operating times

  • data storage

  • setting options for reports

Advantages of the USB data logger for temperature, humidity and shock testo 184 G1

Clear indication of alarms

A glance at the display or the LEDs is enough to know whether limit values have been violated during transport.

easy to use

testo 184 is intuitively operated, and can be used without special training or previous knowledge: The "Start" button begins data recording. "Stop" ends it.

Easiest configuration

In each testo 184, a configuration file is stored, with which the configuration of the data loggers is childsplay to no download, no installation, no user interface and no additional costs.

Convenient readout

A PDF report with the transport data is created immediately on connection of the testo 184 data logger to the USB interface of a computer. This is suitable for long-term archiving according to PDF/A standard.


The testo 184 data loggers work securely without software installation or download, so that IT problems are triggered neither by the firewall nor the virus scanner.

Mobile readout/printout on site

All testo 184 data loggers can be read out on site with an NFC-capable Android smartphone. Data transfer from the data logger to a compatible Testo printer also functions wirelessly via NFC.

Vibration data loggers and the like – data loggers for differentiated records

Shock loggers are also referred to as vibration loggers and were initially developed for use in areas involving movement. These may be containers, but also trucks or ships. When products and goods are transported in the ways mentioned, it is important to ensure that sensitive items in particular have the optimum environment. This environment is influenced by a number of factors. One of these factors is vibrations. This is where vibration data loggers can be used.

Some of the shock data loggers have the option of recording other factors, such as temperature or humidity. If you decide on a pure vibration data logger, adding on further measuring instruments may make sense. The temperature data logger, or a temperature / humidity data logger, record the ambient data from the environment and analyze them. On the other hand, the pressure data logger can check how the pressure changes within an area.

Shock data loggers and how they work

The shock data logger or vibration data logger is intended for use with limit values. They determine what the maximum acceptable level of vibrations is within which the values can range. Establishing the limits depends on the products being transported. After entering the values, you can commission the vibration logger. The individual vibrations are recorded by the instrument during the transport. When the destination has been reached, the results can be displayed to provide an overview of whether the limit values have been exceeded.

Some of the instruments are even equipped to enable direct generation of PDF reports. The data can therefore be quickly passed on to the relevant body. If there is a network for data transmission at the destination, it may make sense to use a WiFi data logger to save even more time and moving around.

Documenting vibrations – responding quickly when there are problems

Once the products reach their destination, the measuring values can be read out via the datalogger for shocks. Documenting vibrations has never been so easy. This is naturally an advantage for you as the person responsible for the area. You benefit from being able to respond quickly.

The modern vibration logger can also be equipped with an alarm notification. In other words, you receive an alarm signal when the limit values have been exceeded. This means you are in a position to respond particularly quickly and alter the influences on the quality of your products.

Datalogger shock, temperature, humidity, pressure, CO2, CO, UV

However, you also have the option of using a complete data monitoring system. It involves the data being passed on within a network. This also works with a WiFi data logger. However, this has not always proved to be a sensible option so far in terms of transport monitoring.

Supplementary instruments for effective transport monitoring:

  • temperature data logger

  • temperature / humidity data logger

  • pressure data logger

  • CO2 data logger

  • CO data logger

  • UV data logger
