Can the CS650 and the CS655 measure water content in concrete?

Some customers have successfully used water content reflectometers, such as the CS650 and the CS655, to measure water content of wet concrete mix to ensure consistency between different batches of concrete. However, after concrete begins the curing process, salts are formed that make the electrical conductivity too high for the CS650 and the CS655 to operate. Thus, these sensors cannot be embedded in wet concrete to measure the water content of the concrete as it cures and dries.
