shock rating

A numerical value given to computer equipment to indicate its durability when physically dropped or subjected to another force. Shock rating is typically described as the acceleration of gravity (G) over a given time, typically a millisecond (msec). For example, a shock rating of 100-200 Gs/1 msec, equivalent to a drop of less than a foot, indicates that a device dropped from less than a foot will still operate as normal. A shock rating of 2,000 Gs indicates a device will operate after a 10-foot drop.
