What needs to be considered during sensor installation?

Factors to consider during sensor installation include ensuring that the tie wire is securely fastened to the reinforcement, preventing the sensor from floating during the concrete pouring process. Additionally, it is crucial to thoroughly document the sensor’s installation position in the plans to facilitate locating the sensor during future readings.

For retrofit installations, it is essential to ensure that the core hole is not too large (10 cm core drilling) to enable efficient and quick coupling to the existing concrete. When installing a corrosion sensor, attention must be paid to orienting it with the roughened surface parallel to the main surface, ensuring that the first measurement layer represents the upper wire layer even in the installation scenario.
