Canadian IoT firm AOMS Technologies has launched the LumiNode Plus concrete sensors for construction and industrial applications. They are part of its LumiCon smart construction suite.

LumiNode Plus is a wireless sensing product for the concrete industry that offers direct cloud connectivity, enabling instant streaming of concrete temperature and maturity data directly to the cloud without extra devices such as network gateways, repeaters or signal boosters. This can reduce the capital cost of concrete monitoring and enhance reliability for cloud connectivity.

“With LumiNode Plus, contractors can access critical information on concrete temperature and maturity data from anywhere in the world and on any device, so they can make informed, efficient decisions, ultimately saving project time and cost,” said Amir Azhari, CCO at AOMS Technologies. “The enhanced flexibility of this adds value across a variety of construction project types, including linear, roadwork or rail projects where installation of gateways can be challenging.” 

With a low-power design and USB battery recharging, it allows for continuous operation over long periods and is reusable across multiple projects, representing a more environmentally sustainable alternative to embedded concrete sensors.

Designed and built tough for construction, it is rated at IP68 and enclosed with a protective shield, enabling it to withstand any environmental conditions at construction sites.

The product can be installed without any changes in the site workflow. It pairs with embedded high-accuracy multi-point sensing cables, with customisation enabling horizontal and vertical temperature monitoring regardless of the depth or complexity of concrete pours. It also comes with a built-in temperature sensor for ambient temperature measurement, providing simultaneous insight into job site environmental conditions.

AOMS says it empowers industrial users with mission-critical insights anywhere and anytime to build a safer, more resilient and more sustainable future. It is developing interconnected products for generating actionable insights from assets and processes to enhance efficiency and productivity, reduce operational costs, increase safety, and improve environmental sustainability. Its products are deployed globally in construction sites, power generation infrastructure, refineries, renewable energy projects, heavy manufacturing plants and environmental remediation sites.
