1. Signal Sensor registration
Step 1: Remove the sleeve
Remove Converge Signal from the packaging and activate the sensor by removing the sleeve. The LED will begin flashing every two seconds once active.
Step 2: Register your sensor
Register the sensor to the ConcreteDNA platform, by scanning the sensor’s label with the Converge Mobile app, or entering the serial number manually
2. Signal Sensor Installation
Step 1: Select an ideal position
Fix the sensor firmly to the reinforcement bar using a cable tie. Please note, to ensure optimal wireless range. Converge signal sensors must be installed no greater than 100mm below the surface of the concrete.
Step 2: Position the device on the rebar
Make sure that the concave area of the sensor is around the rebar and that the LED is facing up. Put a cable-tie or tie-wire through the device fixing hole and ensure tighten the cable-tie or tie wire to ensure it is fixed securely. For best performance, the body of the sensor should have the QR code label facing outwards.
3. Data Collection
Collect measurements regularly while your concrete cures by approaching the sensor with the Converge mobile app open on your mobile device.
The app will automatically collect and upload measurements from the nearest sensor. Please note, you must be logged in and have Bluetooth turned on to collect measurements. An internet connection is required to upload measurements.
4. Devices With Sensor Tails
To install a signal sensor with a tail, the body of the sensor should be installed on the top level of reinforcement bar (see above). run the wire for the sensor probe underneath the rebar to ensure it isn't damaged by people walking on the reinforcement, fixing it at regular intervals (avoiding pulling on the cable) to ensure it isn't damaged when pouring concrete. Fix the probe to the rebar with a cable-tie at your desired measurement location.
