LPWAN stands for Low Power Wide Area Network and is a type of wireless network allowing long range communications at low bit rate among connected objects, such as our Orbit devices and the cloud.
An indicator of how much the concrete has progressed in the curing process.
A mathematical expression that uses the measured temperature history of a cementitious mixture during the curing period to calculate an index that is indicative of the maturity at the end of that period.
An indicator of maturity that is calculated from the temperature history of the cementitious mixture by using a maturity function.
A technique for estimating concrete strength that is based on the assumption that samples of a given concrete mixture attain equal strengths if they attain equal values of the maturity index.
Solution allowing construction companies and precast element productions to monitor the curing process of concrete remotely and in real-time using wireless devices and online software. Read more...
