RVmagnetic’s MicroWire offers a wide range of sensing possibilities in
Construction and Civil Engineering. MicroWire produces accurate data on concrete
maturity, occurrence of cracks, pressure on steel ropes or rebar, and
It is designed for real-time monitoring of values such as pressure, torsion,
torque, temperature, vibration, tilting of construction and air /
RVmagnetic’s MicroWire allows monitoring in all weather conditions at
any time during the construction process, including during welding and
Allow introduction of microwires inside various materials without affecting their properties; including implanting the MicroWire to human tissue.
Sensor can be safely implanted in human tissue, vein, implant (invasive) or become part of diagnostic device (non-invasive).
MicroWires are resistant to chemically and mechanically challenging environment. They are also short-circuit protected.
4. Spark-less sensing
Use of RVmagnetics sensors does not produce sparks and therefore can be safely placed in ignition sensitive environments.
Thanks to RVmagnetics MicroWire, construction and civil engineering
professionals are now able to monitor in real-time parts of the construction
process that were previously impossible to measure due to technical or chemical
RVmagnetics state-of-the-art sensing technology detects sensor signals even
when affected by noisy electro-magnetic fields (produced by ferro-magnetic
materials such as steel, which is typically present in any construction).
Using RVmagnetics MicroWire, the real measurement of relative elongation of
rebars embedded in reinforced steel construction is possible. Thanks to its
micro-dimensions, the presence of a sensor does not cause material defects,
therefore concrete never cracks as a result of a MicroWire. RVmagnetics sensors
measure forces affecting your building during and after the construction
