"The G-Log 2 data logger from Germany-based Aspion GmbH is the first shock recorder on the market to implement the continuous shock/vibration test of the European transport standard EN IEC 60721-3-2:2018 with its 2M4/2M5/2M6 classes during transportation."
"Aspion has been in business for ten years. Five years ago, the G-Log shock sensor was successfully launched. Now it's time for a little review. In terms of performance scope, depth of detail and price, there is no comparable system."
"Shock sensors for monitoring the transport of sensitive goods also existed in 2011, but they were far too expensive, cumbersome to handle and impossible to operate without specialist knowledge," explains graduate engineer Michael Wöhr, who founded ASPION GmbH in Karlsruhe ten years ago.

"Despite sophisticated logistics and IT, transporting goods to the customer remains a risky undertaking. The products often cover thousands of kilometres and often change carriers several times. Especially when it comes to sensitive machines and equipment, those responsible are worried about the stress their products are exposed to during this time. A sensor promises a remedy".

User report on the use of ASPION G-Log shock sensors at Uhlmann Pac, the world's leading manufacturer of machines for the pharmaceutical industry. Also: Interview with Managing Director Michael Wöhr about special features of the ASPION solution and more.
"... Goods are not always handled in accordance with the specifications during transport. The G-Log provides all parties involved with reliable data in the event of complaints. [...] The causer of the damage can thus be narrowed down and there is more clarity. ..."

"Trench Germany, a manufacturer of high-voltage instrument transformers, is the technology center for gas-insulated products within the group and as a member of the Siemens family. The transducers manufactured in Bamberg are shipped all over the world - and have recently been monitored during transport by Aspion's state-of-the-art sensor technology".

"... Already in the test phase, costly transport damage could be proven with the recordings of the sensors and thus considerable expenses could be avoided. The investment in the sensors has paid off for Uhlmann several times from the very beginning.
"... To prove where and when a load was damaged, the shock sensor from Aspion is suitable for transport in aircraft. [...] Due to the battery type and the restriction to passive radio technology NFC, the G-Log sensor is fully approved for air freight."
"Transport insurance is growing as people order more and more online. To ensure that the goods arrive safely, there are transport monitoring sensors. The Karlsruhe-based company Aspion is a manufacturer of such technology and Managing Director Michael Wöhr explains in his guest article how technology can help the insurance industry to cut costs. ..."
"The sensor is an incorruptible observer on the long journey of shock-sensitive products. "Current user report in the trade magazine neue verpackung about the use of ASPION G-Log sensors at Uhlmann Pac, one of the world's leading manufacturers of packaging lines for the pharmaceutical industry.
"Aspion presents the new generation of its shock sensor for transport monitoring at Fachpack. According to the company, G-Log 2 now also logs climate data in addition to the time-accurate, broken down six-axis recording of impacts.
"Aspion presents the new generation of its "G-Log 2" shock sensor for transport monitoring at Fachpack. [...] The device now also records climate data. [...] In addition to wireless communication technology NFC (Near Field Communication), the device is also capable of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy)".
"For more than 70 years, the Laupheim-based company Uhlmann has been active as the world's leading manufacturer of machines for packaging and cartoning pharmaceuticals. Many of the packaging lines manufactured by Uhlmann are exported - and are exposed to increased risk of transport damage by sea, air or land. To prove any transport damage, the long-established company has recently started using state-of-the-art shock sensors for digital transport monitoring".
"Ideally, goods should travel from A to B accident-free. In order to document this on the entire transport route, companies rely on the G-Log sensor concept from Aspion. [...] Around 300 machines leave the total of nine plants of Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG [...] In the past, damage occurred repeatedly due to improper handling during transport, which led to considerable difficulties for the sensitive and expensive machines."
"Apple releases the interface for post-range radio (NFC) and thus enables the use of an iOS App with NFC for industrial applications. ASPION, for example, uses the Apple release for NFC, so that its shock sensors are now also readable via iOS App. ..."
"This decision allows the use of an iOS app with NFC for industrial applications. The company Aspion GmbH, [...] has used the release of the interface directly and now enables its customers to read out their shock sensors via NFC with Apple smartphones."
