Transport data logger ASPION G-Log 2:
Transparency for your supply chain!
ASPION G-Log 2 records shock and climatic conditions
The new transport data logger ASPION G-Log 2 measures and records shock events - traceable in all three axes and for the highest shocks up to millisecond level. At the same time, it records climate data such as temperature and relative humidity based on intervals or events. This makes the transport loads and environmental conditions for your goods transparent, traceable and assignable at all times - especially in the event of damage. Reduce costs for transport damage and increase your process quality!
First data logger for monitoring shock/vibration according to transport standard
The shock/vibration test according to the transport standard IEC 60721-3-2 is unique: The data logger compares shocks and vibrations against the selected standard and class. For the first time, this makes testing transport conditions as easy in practice as, for example, proving compliance with a cold chain!
This results in real added value for companies: for the first time, transport damage can be detected cost-effectively even without specialist expertise. For its innovative implementation, the ASPION G-Log 2 was awarded the Best of Industry Award 2022 as the winner in the sensor technology category.

Fields of application
The new ASPION G-Log 2 - just like its little brother ASPION G-Log - has been specially developed for the transport monitoring of sensitive goods and products. The transport data loggers collect valuable information especially for manufacturers in the machine and plant construction, automotive and electronics industries, energy sector as well as logistics and packaging industry. In addition, the data loggers are successfully used by companies in a wide range of industries for testing packaging, shocks during loading, vibration tests and much more.
With the option to switch off shock recording and the intelligent recording of climate data such as temperature and relative humidity - interval and event-triggered - the data logger is suitable for checking temperature and humidity-sensitive products during transport and in the warehouse.
How it works
The ASPION G-Log 2 data logger is attached directly to the transported goods, initialized with threshold values and activated immediately or time-controlled. During the entire transport route, it stores events that occur: Shocks, temperature and humidity fluctuations that lie outside the preset tolerance limits - or permanently within the set interval. Equipped with NFC and BLE for wireless communication, the data can be read, evaluated and transmitted at any time using the smartphone app. The analysis of the data is carried out conveniently with the free PC software.

Meaningful details at millisecond level
The data of a shock event in detail are essential for evaluations and interpretation in the event of damage. The sensor records the temporal course of a shock on all three axes on the millisecond level. This section of a total of 19 values is used for the exact analysis of the course, allows conclusions to be drawn about the effects and can make a significant contribution to the assessment in the event of damage and to packaging optimization. All in all, a sensor permanently stores the very first shock event as well as the other eight highest shock events in this granularity. Thus the ASPION shock sensors deliver a unique depth of detail in contrast to all other data loggers in the same price range.
New: Activation now also possible via app
ASPION G-Log 2 shock and climate loggers can be activated flexibly, quickly and easily directly via smartphone app for the first time with the new version 6. The activation takes place in interaction with the cloud service ASPION G-Log Premium. This means that you receive each new activation automatically in your PC software. You thus retain full control and transparency over all data loggers used at all times and from any location.
After extensive testing, we recently started using the Aspion G-Log 2 sensor to monitor the global transport of our circuit breakers. The data logger has the ability to select the transport class 2M4 to 2M6 according to IEC 60721-3-2 Ed. 3.0 standard. If thresholds within a transport class are exceeded, these events are recorded and marked in red. This has the great advantage that it can be quickly recognized whether the standard has been complied with or not.

"The problem with our instrument transformers is that damage that occurs during transport is not immediately apparent. For us it is more than important to know exactly when a critical event occurred. Both the measurement data from our laboratory and the price for the G-Log sensor from ASPION convinced us quite quickly."

"We use the shock sensors to monitor the transport of our high-quality pharmaceutical packaging machines and to track transport or loading damage. The shock sensors have proven themselves right from the start and provide us with very good service in the argumentation of damage to insurance companies or customers."

"For the monitoring of a machine transport to Russia we successfully used the ASPION shock sensors. With the Smartphone App our technician was able to read the data at the destination and make an initial diagnosis. Due to its simple handling and robustness, we will continue to expand the system."

"We import photovoltaic panels from Asia. Our experience with transport damage and the unpleasant disputes have led us to organise the complete transport ourselves. The G-Log 2 shock and climate data loggers from Aspion were used from the very beginning. The high quality and level of detail of the recorded data has significantly strengthened our negotiating position with the insurance companies. The days are over when transport parties blamed each other."
Alexander Marxreiter, Managing Director
"For over 25 years, we have been supplying customers with our machines and systems, which are characterised by quality, availability and delivery speed. With the use of the small and compact ASPION G-Log 2, we track our complete solutions in terms of shock, humidity and temperature.This enables us to detect damaging environmental conditions at an early stage. In this way, we rule out possible malfunctions."
Enrico Dornack, Purchasing Department
"In the field of heavy goods packaging as well as for products that are very sensitive to packaging, we rely on complete documentation of the loads during the logistics chain. Here we appreciate the ASPION data logger's simple and individual adjustability as well as the multitude of readout options. Especially the mobile readout via Smartphone provides for enormous transparency and inspires our customers from the special machine construction again and again anew."
Peter Hoffmann-Pichler, Managing Director
IVH Industrieverpackung Heidenheim GmbH
"The ASPION G-Log Manager software and the associated smartphone app for controlling the shock sensors are characterized above all by user-friendliness, flexibility and a sophisticated, smart design. We are also pleased to award seal holders that produce internationally oriented products."
