Marcotte, Cortex exploit sensors’ potential across mixer truck spectrum


Batch controls and concrete plant automation developer Marcotte Systems has entered a technology-integrating partnership with Cortex Ltd., a fleet management program and Internet of Things (IoT) device specialist. The Marcotte Control platform adjusts the required quantity of each mix constituent during batch execution, while preserving key ratios and volumetric yield. All parameters such as local material properties, density, absorption, granularity, moisture and temperature are used to smart-balance concrete mixes. The Cortex 360 solution encompasses a complete set of sensors specifically designed for ready mixed delivery and quality control—drum rotation, water-added measurement and precise auto-statusing among them.
