BOURNE, MA, June 4, 2003 - Onset Computer Corporation, the leader in reliable, battery-powered data loggers, introduces the HOBOâ Pro Series, a family of weatherproof data loggers for measuring and recording indoor and outdoor climate data, which can later be analyzed on a PC. The HOBO Pro Series address the need among many HVAC contractors, facilities and energy managers, and maintenance technicians for a portable monitoring device that can withstand harsh indoor environments as well as condensing outdoor conditions.


A choice of three models is offered, including single-channel temperature, two-channel temperature and RH, and two-channel temperature. An Intrinsically Safe (IS) version of the two-channel temperature and RH logger is also available for monitoring conditions in hazardous locations where combustible gas or dust may be a concern. Each HOBO Pro logger provides +/-0.3°C (+/-0.5°F) accuracy and +/-3% RH accuracy with 12-bit resolution.

Other key features include:

· Large memory capacity - HOBO Pro Series loggers can store 65,291 8-bit resolution measurements or 32,645 high-resolution measurements.
· Weatherproof enclosure - Rugged enclosure can withstand harsh and/or condensing environments, and is drop-proof to five feet.
· Convenient data offload - Data from HOBO Pro Series loggers can be quickly and easily offloaded using Onset's pocket-sized HOBO Shuttle or HandCarâ EX software on a Palm' handheld.
