MSR 175



Protect your goods!

The MSR175 stand-alone data logger uses high-resolution sensors to continuously record what happens to your goods during transportation. The logger data can then be analysed very accurately – be it in order to ascertain damage or to improve transport packaging – using the “MSR ShockViewer” software.

Collecting data for secure transportation

The two 3-axis acceleration sensors integrated in the MSR175 have working ranges of ±15 g and ±200 g. They record shocks and jolts at a measurement frequency of up to 5,000 measurements per second. The installed memory of the logger is capable of storing over 2 million measured values, which is sufficient for more than 1,000 shocks. In addition, the MSR175 data logger measures and records temperature profiles from -20° to 65 °C. Additionally, a second type variant of this data logger is available with internal humidity, pressure and light sensors.

Easy-to-use pc software: Thanks to the new MSR175 Dashboard software which includes NEW report generator, preparing the MSR175 for its mission and reading its measured data via USB is very easy. The data can be analysed and clearly presented in a chart using the intuitive MSR ShockViewer software. In the process, you can analyse critical events at a glance and document them conclusively in a report; a frequency analysis facilitates identifying the causes of shock events.

Power Pack - N10023 - 5000mAh allows one to use the 175 Data Loggers for extended period of time

What is special about the MSR PowerPack compared to other power units is that the MSR PowerPack switches off when the battery is fully charged and switches on again a day later.

This means that there is no loss due to leakage current via the USB.

However, whether the number of shock events is sufficient for your application is wholly dependant on the threshold value. The level of the threshold value depends, among other things, on the permissible critical acceleration that may act on the transported goods. On the other hand, a low threshold value shortens the recording time.
In our experience, the estimated maximum number of shock events is between 1000 - 1350 events.

Order Code: N10023
