Civil + Structural Engineer: App monitors concrete temperature and maturity wirelessly
Published on Civil + Structural Engineer in October 2017.
Pavement engineering firm The Transtec Group released a wireless option for the COMMAND Center concrete temperature and maturity system. Builders, subcontractors, suppliers, testing firms, owners and owner agencies, engineers, and architects can now measure and log concrete temperature history, calculate maturity, and evaluate in-place strength with the free COMMAND Center for iOS app.
The COMMAND Center system employs small, self-powered sensors placed in fresh concrete that automatically measure temperature data at predetermined intervals and store data internally. When using COMMAND Center Wireless, the sensors connect to a reusable Sensor Reader Module (SRM) which transfers the sensor data to the iOS app via Bluetooth, or stores data locally for later transfer. The sensor data can be viewed, analyzed, and shared in real-time.
