Fully embedded on the rebar with no wires or testing labs required, this easy-to-use, hassle-free sensor allows for quick decision-making onsite and prevents unnecessary setbacks.
The maturity method, used by SmartRock, is approved by ASTM and ACI as an accurate and reliable test for measuring concrete strength onsite, making results more accurate than field-cured cylinder breaks.
With real-time data and 24/7 remote monitoring capabilities, confidently check the status of your pour and get notifications anytime, anywhere, on any device.

The design of the SmartRock 3 sensor enables measuring temperature values at two locations simultaneously, one at the temperature probe (tip of the white cable) and one in the body of the sensor (black transmitter). The result can be visualized on the SmartRock Mobile App or the Giatec 360, a Cloud-Based Project Dashboard, where the measurements are differentiated through the “Cable” and “Body” designation.
The design of the SmartRock 3 sensor enables measuring temperature at the tip of the white cable (temperature probe) and on the body of the sensor (the black transmitter). On the sensor page of the SmartRock application or the Giatec 360 platform, users can toggle between the two temperature values identified as “cable” and “body” at the top of the page. The temperature graph will display both temperature profiles and will highlight the difference between the measurement points.
The sensor transmitter must be installed no more than 2 inches (5 cm) from the concrete surface. This is to enable strong wireless signal strength for continued connectivity to the sensor, even long after it has been installed in concrete.
When the sensor is installed inside concrete as recommended, it can transmit up to 40 ft (12 m). When the black transmitter is exposed, the range of the wireless signal can be up to 100 ft (30 m).
The sensor takes a measurement every 15 minutes, allowing it to collect data for 2 months. However, the battery life extends for up to 4 months. This enables the user to retrieve the data for an extra 2 months once the memory is full.
Yes. The sensors can be turned off to preserve battery and memory until the start of the pour, this is done by inserting the temperature probe back into the sensor body.
Yes. Please ask for customized length options when you are ordering your SmartRock package.
The SmartRock 3 is available in two different lengths; the shorter cable has a length of 12 in (30 cm), while the longer cable can measure concrete temperature up to 10 ft (3 m) inside your concrete structure. Contact our team if you are not sure what sensor would be the best suited for your application.
The QR code on the SmartRock 3 sensor is a feature for tagging sensors on the mobile application. The application will guide you through adding new sensors to your projects. To do so, the application will prompt you to scan the QR code on the sensor.
Anytime the temperature probe (the white cable) is removed from the sensor, this activates the sensor. The LED light located on top of the sensor body will blink 3 times to indicate that the sensor was properly activated and is ready to be used.
The SmartRock 3 has three main physical components, the white cable, the sensor body, and a rubber installation strap. The activation and installation procedure was enhanced from 2 metal wires that were twisted around the rebar in the SmartRock 2 generation, to a rubber strap meant to tightly install and secure the sensor. The installation strap was specially designed to install the sensors on different sizes and types of rebar. It can also withstand 40 lbs of force.
