In this article, you can see the latest updates and changes for Maturix In-situ. Here is what’s new:
- Update to Arrhenius – Now includes mathematical fit for strength calculation
- Parameters can either be done by the application, or it can be overwritten by the user
- Custom lines
- New types
- Ambient temperature
- Quick scan – Easy access to status of a device
- Quick scan needs to be enabled on the organisation level “Organisation” -> “Access and Integrations”
- PDF update
- PDF export has been updated resulting in a better presentation of graphs and data
- PDFs are now generated in the background and send by email, with the PDF as an attachment
- General updates and bugfixes
- Monitoring and Calculated Series can now have multiple targets. They will be visible in the tables and charts (when reached).
- Calculated series data is now within the pdf.
- New monitoring type: Evaporation
- It is now possible to use a calendar to pick the timeframe for data to be shown.
- The device needs to have been connected to the project for the timeframe to be chosen.
- It is now possible to use a calendar to pick the timeframe for data to be shown.
- User settings:
- It is now possible to set a project as default project, and be directed to this on login.
- General bug fixes throughout the application.
- (New) The sub-reports have been substituted by Sections. Before, the only way you could divide the monitorings’ data was by finishing a cast and creating sub-reports afterwards. With Sections, you can group your monitorings together at any time during the process. Then, you can export the Sections’ monitorings data in different formats.
Your Sections can be seen in the Cast view, once you create at least one. Read more about how to create sections here.
- (New) It is now possible to group projects by their first tag. If you wish to activate this functionality, you can go to “User settings” and click at the switch (see picture for reference). Once you activate it, the projects will be shown sorted by tag in the Project view.
- (Improvement) The layout of the Cast page has been changed to make it easier to see the casts’ information in fewer clicks.
- Alarms are visible in a table on both the Cast and Casts page.
- Most user actions on the Cast page are also accessible from the Casts page.
- (Improvement) The navigation menu has been removed, to allow more space on the page. In this line, the calendar has also been moved to the top of the Cast view page.
- (Improvement) It is now possible to expand the graphs in size.
- (Improvement) When you create a new monitoring, you can now select the “Create another monitoring”. When selected, it will allow you to create multiple monitorings which will have the same parameters but a different title and assigned devices.
- (Improvement) API Keys tab is now accessible from the Organisation view. However, this is only visible if your organisation has requested API access.
- (Improvement) The latest Measurement column will show as offline if the latest measurement is more than 14 days old. Its value will appear within a tooltip.
- (Improvement) Subscription requests will disappear a week after being approved/denied.
- (Improvement) The Help Centre button now shows relevant articles depending on the page that you are currently in.
- You can now activate notifications (alarms for no data, for target or for temperature) while creating a monitoring. Before, this was done by, first, creating the monitoring and then, creating the alarms from the Cast view.
- It is also possible to add a delayed start to the monitoring. When starting the monitoring, the start time will be set to the amount of minutes in the future that you selected (e.g. 60 minutes). This is especially useful when starting large casts with several hours of pouring.
- It is now possible to include planned devices when copying a cast.
- You can now copy a finished cast.
- Now, it is possible to start all the cast’s monitorings at once. For this option to work, it is required that each monitoring has an available device assigned to it. If one or more planned devices are being used for another monitoring, the monitorings will not start and you will need to start each of them individually.
- Subscriptions are now being managed and enforced through the software. All devices need to have an active subscription in order to be used on new monitorings. Read more about it in our Subscriptions article.
Dual axis on graphs:
- It is possible to enable dual axis for temperature, maturity and strength. This feature is optional, and can be enabled under “User settings”. When enabled, the dual axis will be applied to all casts’ graphs and reports. You can always revert back to the single axis view by deselecting the “delta timeline” option.
- If you use the mobile application, you may have experienced being logged out of it automatically without requesting it. This should now be fixed so that you stay logged in for a longer period of time.
- There have been issues when adding a concrete mix within a project. The concrete mix was sometimes being hidden if another concrete mix was added to the organisation. This should be fixed now.
If you have concrete mixes that have been hidden from the project and want to get them back please contact support for getting help.
Expansion on default project settings
The default project settings have been expanded to include the possibility of setting:
- Default maturity unit for default maturity
- Default concrete mix (from the ones connected to the project)
- Default monitoring types (based on concrete mix or default maturity)
- Default monitoring target for either maturity or strength (based on selected concrete mix or default maturity)
Copy cast functionality
It is now possible to copy a cast and its monitorings and alarms. So if you are making the same type of casts multiple times you can now copy the original cast, give it a new name, and you are ready for the next casting.
Expansion of Concrete Library
The Concrete Library has been expanded to include maturity unit and compression test type.
Update to buttons on casts
We have updated the view of the buttons on the casts overview page, where some of the lesser-used buttons are grouped under a dropdown.
Maturity unit for cast
It is now possible to set the maturity unit for a cast when it is created using default maturity parameters. If a concrete mix is used the maturity unit is inherited from the concrete mix.
(Can be found under “maturity settings” when adding a new cast or editing existing cast)
New concrete graph design
The Concrete Mix graphs have been redesigned to match the latest style.
New design for Data Editor
The Data Editor has been migrated to our updated design and is now using the same graphs and tables as the rest of the software.
Email notification when added to a project
When an existing organization user is added to a project, the user will be notified via email.
Updated email template
The email template has been refined to follow the latest design guide.
Previously there was an issue where the organisation role would overrule the project role if the organisation employee. This has been fixed and the project role should be the ruling if available.
It’s been a while since the last software update – and that is because this update was a big one. The vast majority of the system code has been rewritten to maximize performance and prepare for future features. Furthermore, some different improvements and fixes have taken place.
New graph design
The graphs have been updated to a more intuitive and user-friendly design. The overall performance and showcasing of graphs is much faster and updating graphs by selecting/deselecting monitorings happens instantly. Evaluating the data and individual data points by hovering the mouse over the graphs is also much easier than before.
You can zoom in on the graph by clicking and dragging the mouse over the area you want to give a closer look. A “Reset zoom” button is shown in the top right corner of the graph to reset the view.
Organisation – Copy invite link
You can now copy invite links that have been sent to users to join your organisation.
In case you made a mistake, e.g. if you invited the wrong person/email, you can revoke sent invitations.
Sorting and searching tables
Most tables now have the ability to sort the content. You simply click the header of the column you want to sort, and the table will sort the content. This is very helpful for getting the full overview.
Furthermore, we have added a search field, making it extremely easy to filter the content and find exactly what you are looking for.
To enhance navigation around the platform, we have added tabs on multiple pages to help filter the content.
The “Reports” page has been moved under Casts and is now available under the tab Finished.
- Number of casts are now shown as “Planned Casts”, “Active Casts” and “Finished Casts”
- Archived projects are now accessible under its own tab

There is a new unit in town!
Maturix In-situ now supports kg/cm² as a strength unit. You can select it as your default strength unit in your settings.
Maturix Concrete Library is in BETA!
We have been looking forward to showing you the Maturix Concrete Library. We have analyzed more than 500 different concrete compositions and tried to simplify the process of creating a concrete profile for use in your projects. You can try it our in your Concrete Database – but remember to always perform a physical test to compare.
Logarithmic Regression on Nurse Saul
You can now use logarithmic regression when creating and using Nurse Saul as a maturity method. You can add the regression on all your existing concretes – or the new concretes you create.
Going in and out of projects
To improve the user experience, we have changed the way that you navigate in and out of projects. When you click on “Projects” in the menu (or one of the pages related to the organisation) you will now be sent out of the chosen project. To go back into the project, simply click on it on the Projects page.
Export weather data
Did you know that we gather weather data for each of your projects? The weather data is visible in the bottom of each report – but now you can also export the weather data. It is available in the dropdown menu for exports on each report.
Custom project settings
Did you know that you can adjust the settings for a specific project? If you suddenly have a project where you want to use Arrhenius in stead of Nurse-Saul – or want to generally adjust e.g. the activation energy, you can now do that under ‘Project Settings’
Do you use Arrhenius or Nurse-Saul? We have improved your control over the settings for maturity functions, which can now be updated by your organisation admin. The settings for your organisation are inherited each time you create a new project, so you always keep your settings.
Proper planning prevents poor performance. Therefore, you can now check the coverage when creating a new project! Strong coverage on-site is important for the system to work properly. The coverage estimator shows an expected coverage at the project location marked on the map – and you should consider installing a Sigfox gateway if the coverage is limited.
Signal and battery indicator
We have added a signal strength and a battery status indicator under Devices. The signal indication is based on the signal strength from the latest message received. The “consider battery service” icon shows when the device has sent more than 20.000 transmissions.
Reverse cable polarity
You can now reverse the cable polarity in the Data Editor in case you have assembled the thermocouple plug with the plus and minus wires switched.
Maturix™ In-situ is now available in French! You can change the language by going to User Settings and adjusting the language. We hope you like it!
The units you need
Maturix™ In-situ now supports various units for temperature and strength – so you can see the data in they way you are used to. You can select your settings under User Settings.
We have simplified the monitoring process – and made targets optional. You can now select if you want to measure temperature, maturity or strength – and update your targets on the go.
New table layout in Casts
We have now added the Device ID and the start time of the cast in the casts table.
Device info before starting monitoring
We know that getting good data is key to getting good results – so now you can see the current status of each device before your start your monitorings.
Easy adjustment of start and stop
You can now adjust the start and stop times in the data editor for all monitorings on a cast at one time. When you have selected a new time, you will be presented with a checkbox option to adjust the time on all monitorings. So once simple click, and you will have trimmed all the monitorings.
You can now resume a monitoring if you have stopped it too early. By resuming the monitoring, you will include all data gathered by the same device from the monitoring was stopped and up to now.
Clean up your concrete database
Now you can delete some of the concrete mixes you are no longer using. Soon you will be able to update concrete mixes and keep track of previous versions of the same concrete mix. We hope you like the improvement.
Tune your Arrhenius equation
We hope to provide you with the option to adjust every single parameter being used in the calculation of the concrete maturity. Specific concrete mixes may require custom parameters – such as a higher activation energy. Now you can specify a custom activation energy for each concrete mix you create, to achieve even better results.
Sharing is caring!
Sharing information is essential for good results – so we have made sharing even easier! You can now share a cast via link, so anyone with the link can access an overview of the cast and see the current results – even though they do not have a Maturix user. The focus is on the results, so only the name of the cast and the measuring points are visible. Try it out now!
New alarm: Cable disconnected
You can now use a new alarm feature in Maturix™ In-situ. The new alarm is called ‘Cable disconnected / No data for ..”, which allows you to get notifications if a cable is suddenly disconnected from a monitoring, while it is still active. You will also receive a notification if our system has not received data from the sensors within a set time limit.
Easy renaming of monitorings
You can now edit and update the monitoring description from the cast list. So no worries if you get it wrong!
Better highlight in Data Editor
We have increased the duration of the highlight function when clicking on a point in the graph. This makes it easier to locate and adjust data in reports.
