Onset, a supplier of data loggers and weather stations, launched the HOBO Wireless temperature and humidity monitoring kit, a wireless system that facilitates environmental monitoring cost-effectively.
The HOBO Wireless Temp/RH Monitoring Kit includes three wireless temperature/RH data nodes, a data receiver, HOBOware Pro software and sensor mounting accessories.
Officials explained that the monitoring process involves three easy steps to monitor critical temperature and humidity conditions and log data for trend analysis besides keeping oneself informed of alarm conditions via text or e-mail. The system eliminates the need for wires or manual data offload.
The HOBO Wireless Temp/RH Monitoring Kit features a centralized monitoring facility for easy monitoring from the desktop. Besides delivering alarm notifications via text or E-mail it also features automated data delivery to remote locations via e-mail or FTP and a flexible design for expanding the system according to use.
“Customers in a variety of industries are looking to track critical building temperature and humidity conditions easily and wirelessly,” said Kory Wagner, product specialist for Onset.
This monitoring kit comes in handy for users working in different facilities such as food processing plants, office buildings, laboratories and warehouses.
“Adding measurement points to building automation systems can be expensive, and chart recorders tend to require a lot of maintenance. The new HOBO monitoring kit overcomes these limitations, enabling users to start monitoring their most important assets right out of the box,” Wagner added.
The instant alert system sends users a text message via phone or e-mail when temperature/RH conditions go beyond set limits or when one of the temperature/RH sensors gets disconnected from the network. Besides, the system also gives a visual notification on the PC when an alarm has tripped.
The wireless monitoring includes HOBOnode Manager software, a component of Onset’s industry-leading HOBOware Pro software. This software lets users view near real-time energy and environmental data, set alarm notifications and also have a holistic view of the system on the Network Map feature.
Onset’s HOBO data loggers and weather station products are useful in various applications, including building energy performance monitoring, water resources management, and ecological and agricultural research.
Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) recently selected Onset’s HOBO U24 Conductivity Data Loggers for their accuracy, reliability and affordability. When gas development begins, the DRBC can quickly identify any changes and react if a problem arises.
