A three-model family of electronic Atlas Copco SMART concrete pokers has made its debut in the U.S. market. The 3rd generation re-design of the model 40, 48 and 56 SMART pokers has a streamlined aluminum housing that protects their built-in electronics with an overall weight reduction of 30 percent, according to the manufacturer.

That the Atlas Copco SMART concrete pokers can be powered by common 120 volt supply gives them what the company has described as “plug and poke” operation and simplicity of control with a single on/off switch.

High centrifugal force, ranging from 360 lbs. in the SMART 40 to more than 1,030 lbs. in the SMART 56, combines with stable speed and high amplitude to ensure good concrete vibration with fewer dips.

The SMART poker’s variable frequency converter is built in, which protects against shock, overload and overheating. Rapid acceleration to 12,000 vibrations per minute means voids are transported to the surface quickly.

Light and maneuverable, the SMART poker comes with 32.8 ft. of cable and 16.4 ft. of hose provide ample reach at the job site. Special poker hose lengths also are available.
