Sigfox coverage is required for the Maturix transmitters to send data to the cloud. You must install a Sigfox Gateway at your precast plant to create a Sigfox network and to ensure great connectivity.

Get Started with Maturix Precast

Here is a quick, step-by-step introduction and checklist to Maturix Precast. Click the inline links to learn more.

Step 1: Set up your facility
Setting up your facility is required, as it will make it possible for the system to know at which workstation (mold, bed, etc.) a concrete element is being produced.

Step 2: Add maturity calibration
Maturix estimates the concrete strength of your precast elements using the Maturity Method. You must enter the maturity calibration for each of the concrete mixes you intend to use for strength estimation.

Step 3: Add production entry
To create a monitoring report, you must add a production entry to the production plan. Here you give the report a name, select at which workstation the production is taking place, and choose the concrete mix used for the production.

Step 4: Start monitoring
Start the monitoring by clicking “Choose sensor” and selecting the appropriate device used for monitoring the production. Once you have started the monitoring, the report will display and be available on the Dashboard.

Step 5: Follow the results in real-time
The power of Maturix starts to show when you can follow the temperature and strength development in real-time from anywhere. By adding alarms you can get notified in case of important events by email or SMS.

Step 6: Reporting and exporting data
Once you are done, disconnect the thermocouple from the transmitter and cut the cable at the concrete surface. The monitoring should stop automatically (unless you chose “Manual stop”) and will be available under Quality Reports. You can use the Data Editor to trim your graphs in case you haven’t already. And you can export the reports as PDF or CSV-file.

Optional: Add ambient monitoring
If you have purchased an ambient climate sensor, we can tie this to a “zone” and include the ambient temperature and relative humidity data to all productions taking place within that zone. To include the graph showing the production climate, reach out to your sales representative or [email protected]
