ShockWatch Impact Indicators
ShockWatch impact indicators are specially designed to record and measure harmful shocks and vibrations that may damage your goods during shipment. Simply place one of these high visibility devices onto your box or container and it will alert everyone around when an impact or vibration exceeds the level you initially set. It generally does so by changing color to bright red, with some single use options and some resettable impact indicators available.

SpotSee Temperature Indicators
SpotSee’s cold chain and other temperature indicators are an excellent tool for monitoring your shipments that cannot be exposed to temperatures above or below a certain level. Without tools like these, you may never know that products like food, produce, or pharmaceuticals have been dangerously exposed to temperatures that contaminate them, which could result in significant harm to the end user. These shipping temperature indicators from SpotSee come in two classifications – WarmMark and ColdMark. Check them out below:
WarmMark Temperature Indicators: Single use, field armable, show how long products are exposed to temperatures above your preset threshold.
ColdMark Temperature Indicators: Single use, show when products are exposed to temperatures below your preset threshold.
