MAG 2000 Products

mag2000  

MAG 2000 — This cost-efficient, resettable, reusable, and tamper-proof device monitors the handling of fragile goods and freight containers over 136kgs. When an impact occurs, the device records the direction and angle of impact.

The MAG 2000 utilizes two highly sensitive magnets triggered when a shock or vibration is strong enough to disrupt the magnetic attraction. This causes the upper magnet to move from its home position and appear in a new visible position within the unit. The position of the upper magnet clearly indicates the angle of impact.

A special key is required to be purchased to unlock the cover on the unit. This allows the product to be reset after activation, and prevents tampering.

At least two MAG2000 are required on each shipment mounted on adjacent sides to monitor all planes.

The activation point is factory set, with 10 standard activation values;

2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, 6G, 7G, 10G, 11G, 16G, and 20G.

Special values are available for custom order.

MAG2000 Companion Label:
Affix a MAG2000 Companion Label next to the mounted MAG2000 to provide an additional visual warning and instructions on what to do if mishandling occurs.

The ShockWatch Program

A key element in the success of ShockWatch Impact Indicators is the companion tools available.
Used in conjunction with the indicator labels, these tools include alert stickers, caution tape, posters, and supporting documentation.The complete product offering constitutes a highly effective damage reduction and prevention program.

Implementation of this damage prevention program provides psychological reinforcement of proper handling procedures and changes the behaviour of material handlers. It provides a highly visible deterrent to mishandling throughout the supply chain.

This program is most successful with collaboration from the carriers: the shipping, warehousing, and packaging departments.

The ShockWatch program includes the following:

Alert Sticker:
Affixed to the Bill of Lading, it cautions the carrier and consignee that the shipment is monitored

Companion Label:
The Companion Labels provide an additional visual warning and instructions on what to do if mishandling occurs. The Shockwatch Label, DropSpot or the MAG2000 is placed on the corresponding footprint printed on the labels.
