Gaia 200 9 questions
  • What is the Gaia 200?

    The Orbit K is an electronic device that records temperature and wirelessly sends it to the cloud. The temperature is measured using type K thermocouples and the readings can be viewed online in one of our web portals.

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

    No – and that is the smart thing! You can access the temperature readings from your computer or smartphone at any time, anywhere. Once you have installed the equipment, you can follow the temperature and strength development online in real-time.

  • How is the data transferred to the cloud?

    The data is sent using Sigfox. Sigfox is a wireless network designed to connect smart devices to the cloud. It benefits from longer range than Bluetooth and WiFi, and 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 simple. Secure the thermocouple to the rebar, connect it to the Gaia 200, and place the transmitter at a secure location. When a thermocouple is connected, the Gaia 200 transmits data every 15 minutes automatically.

  • What is embedded into the concrete?

    It is only the inexpensive thermocouple that is embedded into the concrete. The transmitter is mounted next to the cast and can be reused for multiple monitorings. This not only gives a great flexibility, but also keeps the costs per monitoring down.

  • What is the battery lifetime of the Gaia 200?

    The battery lifetime depends on the usage and the conditions. When the thermocouple is inserted 24/7, the battery lifetime is up to 8 months before you need to replace the batteries.

  • How many Gaia 200 do I need?

    This depends on the project. The Gaia 200 is a single-channel transmitter, which means that you can connect one thermocouple per device. Consider the amount of monitoring positions you will need to measure (at the same time) and you know how many devices you will need.

  • How do I install batteries into the Gaia 200?

    Check the Quick Start Guide.

  • Is the Gaia 200 waterproof?

    Yes, the Gaia 200 is dust- and waterproof.
