Gaia 200 10 questions
  • What is Gaia 200?

    Gaia 200 is a wireless transmitter for the Maturix® system. The temperature is measured using type K thermocouples, and the data is transmitted to the cloud with the help of the Gaia 200 device. The readings can then be viewed online on our web portal. It can be used for concrete temperature and concrete strength monitoring.

  • Do I need to be at the job site to access the data?

    No, you can access temperature and strength readings from your computer or smartphone anytime, anywhere, as long as you are connected to the internet. After installing the equipment, you gain the flexibility to monitor temperature and strength development online in real-time, providing valuable insights remotely.

  • How is the data transferred to the cloud?

    The device transmits temperature readings wirelessly to the cloud using the Sigfox network. Sigfox is a global wireless network dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), known for its low power consumption and longer range compared to WiFi and Bluetooth®. You can set up a Sigfox Gateway at your job site to create coverage – even at remote locations.

  • How is the installation done?

    Installation is quick and straightforward. Secure the thermocouple to the rebar, connect it to the Gaia 200, and position the transmitter securely. Gaia 200 transmits data automatically every 15 minutes when a thermocouple is connected.

  • What is embedded in the concrete?

    Only the inexpensive thermocouple is embedded in the concrete. The transmitter is mounted next to the cast and can be reused repeatedly. This provides excellent flexibility and helps maintain low costs per monitoring.

  • What is the battery lifetime of Gaia 200?

    The battery lifetime depends on the usage and the conditions. When the thermocouple is inserted 24/7, the batteries typically last up to 8 months before requiring replacement.

  • How many Gaia 200 do I need?

    The number of devices required depends on the nature of the project. Gaia 200 is a single-channel transmitter, allowing for the connection of one thermocouple per device. To determine the necessary quantity of devices, assess the number of monitoring positions that need simultaneous measurement.

  • How do I install batteries into Gaia 200?

    Please refer to the Gaia 200 Quick Start Guide for instructions on installing batteries.

  • Is Gaia 200 waterproof?

    Gaia 200 has an IP64 rating, meaning it is designed to be dust-tight and can withstand water spray from any direction.

  • Which thermocouples can I use with Gaia 200?

    You can use Type K thermocouples with Gaia 200.
