Giatec Redesigns SmartRock Concrete Sensor

With a complete revamp to the sensor’s design and updated activation and QR code tagging method, this truly wireless, fully embedded device is even more hassle-free, robust and secure.

Giatec announced at World of Concrete 2020 that its flagship product, SmartRock, has been completely re-designed. As the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015, SmartRock is a concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening.

Giatec’s patented maturity sensor uses a highly accurate ASTM-approved testing method.  This has translated into faster, safer and more economical concrete construction even in extreme weather conditions.

“We've been able to save owners and contractors tons of time and money with SmartRock since 2015 and are impressed with the continuous improvements of both the hardware and software” says Walter Flood, Principal Engineer, Flood Testing Laboratories. “It is our go-to technology for every concrete project.”  

The newly engineered SmartRock sensor takes concrete testing to a whole new level. The sensor’s wireless signal range is now five times stronger and is able to collect data from 40 feet away through concrete with the option to access data remotely via a local hub. With a complete revamp to the sensor’s design and updated activation and QR code tagging method, this truly wireless, fully embedded device is even more hassle-free, robust and secure.   

Key features updated with this premium SmartRock sensor include;

  • Re-engineered sensor: simpler to implement and use onsite. 
  • New mobile application: completely rebuilt using input from 7,000 monthly active users. 
  • Enhanced cloud-based dashboard: easily manage all projects in one place and gain deeper insights into the performance of concrete projects at every stage. 
  • More powerful artificial intelligence assistant, Roxi: eliminates human error by giving the upmost confidence in mix calibration data and in the accuracy of strength test results. 
  •  New REST API interface: introducing the ability for more applications to link with the Giatec concrete testing platform. 

“This more advanced sensor will make it 10 times easier for our customers to use. Plus, additional functionality added to Giatec’s artificial intelligence tool, Roxi, helps us eliminate human error," says Patrick Frawley P.E, Director of Quality Assurance Central Concrete Supply, U.S. Concrete Inc. “We’re excited to get it out on the field.”
