Eliminate Concrete Testing Delays

Gain access to real-time strength data instantly through the Giatec 360™ cloud dashboard and SmartRock mobile app at any time, from anywhere.

Concrete calibration involves determining the relationship between concrete maturity and its actual strength. This calibration are crucial for implementing maturity testing, where sensors is embedded in the concrete to monitor its temperature over time. To calibrate the concrete, test samples are taken at various stages of curing and have to undergo standard testing features to determine their compressive strength.

Compared to traditional standardized calibration methods that rely on the calibration of every mix, the self-calibrating SmartRock Pro provides you with instant real-time data without requiring manual calibration. With no guesswork nor interpretation required, you can install it and start monitoring concrete strength immediately, without unnecessary dependencies and delay.

Self-Calibrating

Compared to traditional standardized calibration methods that rely on the calibration of every mix and are a calculation of strength based on temperature, self-calibration allows a thorough in-situ measurement. This can help detect any inconsistency in strength across pours, is a true indication of the concrete being delivered and ensures transparency of mix performance. This method is also extremely simple to use and does not require any special training, technician or third-party involvement.

By continuously optimizing its performance, a self-calibrating sensor enhances the reliability and efficiency of concrete strength monitoring, providing reliable data for informed decision-making throughout the construction process

Mix-Independent

A mix-independent sensor is crucial for concrete strength monitoring because it provides accurate and reliable data regardless of variations in the concrete mix. Concrete mixes can vary due to factors such as material properties, proportions, and mixing techniques. A sensor dependent on a specific mix composition may not provide accurate readings when the mix changes.

Being mix-independent, SmartRock Pro can effectively monitor concrete strength across different batches or variations in mix design. This ensures consistency in strength measurement, enabling contractors and engineers to make informed decisions about the concrete’s performance and durability. Ultimately, it eliminates the need for re-calibration.

Strength Variability

Strength variability in concrete results from factors like material composition, mixing inconsistencies, curing variations, and environmental conditions. This impacts structural integrity. SmartRock Pro detects and manages these fluctuations to ensure uniform quality and minimize waste, thus enhancing construction efficiency and sustainability.

Giatec’s SmartRock® Pro Sensor: The Latest Advancement in the Concrete Technology Industry

If you are an engineer, construction professional, or contractor, you know how important it is to monitor the strength of your in-situ concrete. That is where SmartRock® Pro sensors come in. SmartRock Pro is a wireless sensor that calculates in-situ concrete strength in real-time, providing you with accurate and reliable data that you can use to optimize your construction process. In this blog, we will explore the key features of this new sensor and explore its potential to enhance efficiency, productivity, and the overall quality of your projects.Simple InstallationWhen it comes to design, SmartRock Pro offers simplicity and flexibility. It is a truly wireless sensor that is incredibly user-friendly and easy to install. It consists of two main parts: the antenna (transmitter) and the probe.  The probe is embedded in concrete to collect raw concrete data, while the transmitter contains the antenna for wireless communication. The transmitter can be placed at a depth up to 2 in (cm) below the concrete surface to ensure proper transmission of signal to the phone. A cable connects the transmitter to the probe.Self-Calibrating SensorThe SmartRock Pro can automatically detect your pouring time, as it will activate when in contact with concrete. Once concrete is poured, the device will…
