FlexClip Single


ShockWatch Flex impact indicators are a flexible impact indicator optimized for mounting to an irregular shaped surface ensuring the indicator will stay in place. The Flex is ideal for monitoring tools or equipment that can become misaligned, lose calibration or damaged if mishandled.
ShockWatch Flex impact indicators are highly visible, mechanically-activated devices that turn bright red when an impact occurs. These solutions are ideal when you need to know if product mishandling may have resulted in misalignment, loss of product calibration or warranty-related repair issues.

The single ShockWatch Flex impact indicators have one tube and will provide nearly 360 degrees of detection. The ShockWatch double Flex impact indicator has two tubes and gives a full 360 degrees of detection. ShockWatch Flex impact indicators are mainly used either embedded or attached to the exterior of handheld and calibrated products.\

Lost Calibration for measurement equipment:
Products such as measurement equipment, gyroscopes, weaponry or medical devices require precise calibration in order to operate properly. Impacts can result in misalignment of critical components.

ShockWatch Flex impact indicators indicate if an impact has been experienced that could potentially result in misalignment and the need for recalibration.

Warranty Abuse.
Most companies offer a warranty period during which non-functioning products are repaired or replaced at no cost to the end-user. Service calls involve labour costs of making repairs and overseeing administrative processes, spare parts costs and the costs associated with unhappy customers.

In order to monitor for mishandling, ShockWatch Flex impact indicators can be integrated into or mounted on the product. These devices are excellent tools to improve customer handling and reduce warranty costs associated with mishandling.
