Instructions for using and setting the Drop (N) Tell Impact Indicator
This carton contains equal numbers of DROP (N) TELLS, warning labels and bill of lading labels to be used as a system for monitoring your product during transit. We suggest that the bill of lading labels be placed on the bill of lading to notify the carrier or consignee that the shipment contains an impact monitor. The warning labels should be placed on the top or side of the package. The DROP (N) TELL may be placed on the inside or the outside of the package or on the product.
Mount the DROP (N) TELL with either adhesive back tape or 2 No. 6...32 screws. There is pressure sensitive tape on the back of the indicator. Remove the liner from the tape and press the uint to a flat surface on the package or on the product to be monitored. The DROP (N) TELL impact indicator must be align with arrows pointed toward the direction of shock to be monitored. Three units are needed to provide complete three-dimensional readout (six directions).
To activate the Resettabel Drop (N) Tell
A small 1/16 -inch hole is provided in the center of each end of the plastic housing for the purpose of activating and resetting the unit. This hole is directly in front of the arrow point. A small paper clip with one end bent out can be used for activating and resetting the unit. Push the wire end of the paper clip into the small hole until the arrow snaps back into hiding and the spring is reset. Apply only enough force to reset the arrow and spring assembly. The arrow will snap quicky into a covered position and a sligh snap can be heard. The impact indicators is now ready to use.
To activate the Non-Resettabel DROP (N) TELL
Pull the metal pin on the side of the DROP (N) TELL. It cannot be reset; therefore, care must be exercised not to trip the device as the pin is being pulled.
