7 COATINGSPRO CONCRETE COVERED DECEMBER 2018 Before applying a protective coating or other flooring materials to a concrete slab, it is critical to ensure that the moisture level inside the concrete has decreased to acceptable levels. If not, moisture can accumulate below the coating or flooring causing discoloration, cupping, buckling, blistering, adhesive failure, and/or mold growth. e new PosiTector® CMM IS Concrete Moisture Meter - In Situ probes from DeFelsko measure relative humidity and temperature in concrete floor slabs. ey collect measure- ments and generate reports in conformance with ASTM F2170, Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Humidity in Concrete Floor Slabs Using In Situ Probes. e PosiTector CMM IS probes are designed to wirelessly connect with the PosiTector App (iOS/Android) and PosiTector DPM Advanced models via Bluetooth. e reusable smart probes remain powered on and broadcasting while in situ. ere is no need to open the hole or remove the cap to take a humidity measurement. Each PosiTector CMM IS probe operates for up to three weeks on a single coin cell alkaline battery and features an innova- tive combined sleeve and probe design providing the same function as a separate sleeve without the expense or hassle of consumables. A lso included is a reusable, bright yellow cap to seal the probe within the test hole. T he PosiTector CMM IS In Situ Concrete Moisture Meter is the simple, durable and accurate way to measure concrete relative humidity. Each NIST-traceable probe includes a calibration check salt and chamber for condi- tioning and storage. Probes feature auto-pairing Bluetooth Low Energ y (BLE) w ireless technolog y and transmit concrete moisture measurements to a smartphone operat- ing the free PosiTector App (iOS and A ndroid compatible) or to a PosiTector Advanced gage (serial numbers 784,000 and greater). Using the app on a compatible smartphone or tablet, it's easy to capture and report probe data. Upload a custom floor- plan or other imagery and overlay each probe while adding notes and metadata as required by ASTM F2170. W hen testing is complete, quickly print a professional PDF report that includes all data required by the standard. e innovative PosiTector CMM IS makes the process of concrete moisture measurement and reporting faster, simpler and more accurate. e certified, reusable probes are an ideal solution for measuring in situ concrete RH in accordance with ASTM F2170. Features • Easily collect and report measurements in conformance with ASTM F2170 • No need to open the hole or remove the cap to take a measurement. Probes remain powered on and broadcast- ing via Bluetooth® while in situ. • Combined sleeve and probe design simplifies the instal- lation process and does not require consumables • Reusable Smart Probes • Fast response precision sensors provide accurate, repeat- able readings • Cal Check function automatically determines whether a probe is reading within tolerance Concrete Moisture Measurement DeFelsko Corporation 800 Proctor Avenue Ogdensburg, New York 13669 USA 1-800-448-3835 (USA) +1-315-393-4450 +1-315-393-8471 (fax) Company Profile: DeFelsko SPONSORED CONTENT
