Product Description

Gaia 200 is an updated version of the Orbit K.

Gaia 200 is a wireless transmitter for temperature measurements using type K thermocouples. It is the industry’s most cost-efficient solution for real-time monitoring of the curing of concrete.

Install the thermocouple, connect it to the Gaia 200 and it will automatically start sending the temperature data continuously. Gaia 200 uses Sigfox, the world’s largest IoT network, which offers a longer range than WiFi and Bluetooth. The data is transmitted to the cloud through nearby Sigfox antennas or gateways.

The temperature readings are available in the Maturix® Web Portal. The concrete strength is estimated based on the temperature history using the Maturity Method (ASTM C1074). All of this happens automatically and in real-time, and you can access the data from anywhere.

The rugged and weather-resistant Gaia 200 is designed to withstand the harsh environment at construction sites. The transmitter can be reused again and again as only the economical thermocouple is embedded into the concrete.

Availability

Gaia 200 is available in two variants, one that is certified for use in Sigfox RC1 (20200-1) and one that is certified for use in Sigfox RC2 (20200-2).
