News from ASPION
ASPION celebrates 10-year company anniversary
On 13 April 2011, Michael Woehr founded ASPION GmbH as a sole proprietor. The goal of his development was autonomous smart sensors with long runtimes and simple operation for Industry 4.0 applications. The first standard product was born in January 2016 from the customer requirements of an internationally operating mechanical engineering company: the ASPION G-Log shock sensor with wireless communication, intuitive PC software and smartphone apps. Two further product variants of the data loggers and the extensive expertise in shock / impact detection and its interpretation now inspire more than 500 international customers of all sizes in numerous industries.
With changes on 01/01/2021, the new section 5.5.4 of ADR 2021 comes into force, which regulates the handling of lithium-ion batteries in data collectors. The good news first: Handling with ASPION data loggers remains as simple as usual, a labeling obligation is still not applicable. Also, all ASPION G-Log shock sensors are IATA DGR compliant and do not require any special handling, not even for air cargo.
The updated whitepaper ASPION Data Loggers and Transport Regulations, available in our customer portal, explains the background and regulations in detail, provide links to important information and gives useful practical tips.
ASPION transport data loggers are now available to customers from our new distribution partners. We look forward to a successful cooperation with these companies:
FJ-TEC Industriebedarf e.K., based in Wetter, Hesse, supplies industrial companies throughout Europe with its range of around 25,000 articles. TransPack Krumbach, with its focus on the areas of transport packaging and load securing, has a range of over 8,000 articles available for its industrial customers. WITO Automation AG, based in Switzerland, is a service and trading company in the field of industrial automation technology with customers from the mechanical and plant engineering sector.

"The monitoring of goods in transit by means of data loggers is an important technology, not only for the proof of quality, but also for liability reasons, which is spreading ever faster. Especially when it comes to expensive, durable goods, their use pays off very quickly, as the following example of data loggers for monitoring the transport of solar panels on their way from China to the installation site shows".
