The 4 Pillars of LumiCon

Gordon B. Hinckley once said that “you can’t build a great building on a weak foundation.” 

You’ve most definitely heard some variation of this phrase used before. From product design to business practices to day-to-day life, it’s important to have a strong foundation. We make sure to follow this same principle with our industry-leading concrete sensors. LumiCon is built from the ground-up on 4 vital pillars: 

  1. Ruggedized sensors
  2. Robust connectivity 
  3. Real-time data
  4. Powerful analytics

Without these 4 pillars, LumiCon would not be the complete all-in-one, end-to-end concrete sensing solution it is today. Let’s break it down in a little more detail.

Ruggedized Sensors

Construction is a tough industry. No matter which stage of the job, you will always find tons of dust, debris, exposed metal and rebar, leftover hardware, and concrete residue, just to name a few. None of these things is very friendly to the delicate and sophisticated electronics used in our conventional devices. Each core component of the LumiCon system (LumiNode transmitters, LumiSense cables, and LumiHub gateway) are built with ruggedized materials in order to withstand the toughest conditions of any construction job site. Both dust and water resistant, and with a high temperature tolerance, you can rest assured that your concrete temperature and maturity data is always consistent.

Robust Connectivity

The biggest benefit of LumiCon compared to other concrete sensing solutions on the market is its remote monitoring capabilities. Using the power of the cloud, You can instantly see all of your concrete temperature data wherever you are, and without any need to step foot on your job site. LumiCon uses advanced communication and cellular technology to maintain a consistent wireless connection regardless of location and changes in weather conditions. 

Real-Time Data

Just because concrete takes a long time to cure, doesn’t mean obtaining its temperature readings should either. As an industry-first, LumiCon offers real-time concrete monitoring, which means that no matter what time of day, you can always get instantaneous concrete temperature readings at the touch of a button. The LumiNode transmitter is fitted with intelligent battery management software, allowing for continuous data transmission far beyond the average construction project timeline. 

Powerful Analytics

Concrete strength testing is a very integral, yet time-consuming process. But what if instead of sending concrete samples to a laboratory, you could bring the lab to the concrete? Our LumiSense cables are fitted with state-of-the-art digital sensors which collect data at a high degree of accuracy across the entire length of a single slab. Using industry standard concrete testing methods such as ASTM C1074, LumiCon can accurately measure up-to-the-minute concrete maturity, saving you both time and money.
