Giatec Delivers Most Innovative Generation of SmartRock Wireless Sensor to the Market

OTTAWA, Canada: Giatec, world leader in concrete testing technologies, has announced that the re-design of their award-winning flagship product, SmartRock, now available to pre-order, has been re-engineered with game-changing dual temperature monitoring capabilities for mass concrete applications.

First announced in February of 2020 at World of Concrete, this latest generation of SmartRock takes concrete testing to a whole new level.  In addition to an update in the sensor’s design, activation, installation, and wireless signal range, ‘SmartRock 3’ has been equipped with dual-temperature monitoring capabilities. This enables users to measure temperature values at two locations simultaneously. One temperature probe is located at the tip of the white temperature cable, another in the body of the sensor where the black transmitter is located. This function allows users to easily monitor temperature differentials between the concrete’s core and surface for mass pour applications.

“We are very happy with the new dual temperature functionality of the SmartRock 3 sensor. The temperature readings are very precise, helping us to accurately monitor temperature differentials of our mass pours at the surface and center of the slab, which can vary based on several factors. The sensors are also fast and straight forward to install, sending real-time data to our phones immediately.” says Walter Flood, Principal Engineer, Flood Testing Laboratories.

SmartRock is helping top construction companies eliminate concrete testing delays and take back control of their schedules in over 6,200 projects across 45 countries. As the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015, SmartRock is the leading concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening. Unlike time-consuming and error-prone break tests, or cumbersome wired sensors, Giatec’s patented maturity sensor uses a highly accurate ASTM-approved testing method. Together with the Giatec 360™ platform and SmartHub™ remote monitoring device, this has enabled faster, safer, and more economical concrete construction.

  1. Hi Alicia
    I am a Project Manager on the SKA project in South Africa. We are pouring mass reinforced concrete bases for out radio antennas. I think this could be a great asset in quality control. However, our site is extremely RFI sensitive. Can you give me more info on the device communication, e.g. frequency?

  2. Would like to know more about concrete sensor to gauge strength of concrete through IoT application

    1. Hi Pedro, unfortunately, this kind of equipment does not exist. The only accepted method that complies with ASTM standards is the cone testing for slump and the air meter for air testing. Hope this answers your question.

  3. I have a cabinet full of smart rock 2’s. Are those now obsolete or will they continue to be supported?

    1. Hi Chris, thank you for your comment, I bet other people are wondering the same. With thousands of customers with stock around the world, of course we would make sure you’re all taken care of. On the app just make sure to select SmartRock2 as your sensor and you’re good to go! And if you have any questions our support team is here to help at support@giatec.ca
