Self-calibrating concrete sensor
By Adam FreillConcrete Construction Equipment Technology
Giatec’s SmartRock Pro is a fully self-calibrating concrete sensor designed for concrete strength monitoring. Using the self-calibrating feature, users only need to tag the sensor and install it to begin measuring concrete strength in real time. The sensor measures concrete strength using multiple advanced sensing methods without requiring any manual input. Secured to the rebar, the sensor is fully embedded, making it completely maintenance and hassle-free.
With concrete being delivered to site with very little visibility into the variability of the mix from truck to truck, the self-calibrating sensors provide the ability to measure accurate concrete strength independently of the concrete being received. The new monitoring sensors can be added to the company’s existing advanced AI solutions.
“On a construction site, you never know what changes will come your way; from weather conditions to scheduling, even down to last-minute changes in your mix order and delivery,” says Aali Alizadeh, CTO and co-Founder of Giatec. “It was our mission to create this sensor in parallel to our SmartRock maturity sensor, giving our customers the ability to continue saving days on their projects by monitoring the strength of their concrete in real time. SmartRock Pro is designed to take all fluctuations in stride by self-calibrating to cut costs, save time, and produce less waste from break tests.”
