ONSET COMPUTER CORPORTATION INTRODUCES WEATHERPROOF DATA LOGGERS

The HOBO Pro Series is a family of weatherproof data loggers for measuring and recording indoor and outdoor climate data. Target applications include IAQ and comfort monitoring, storage monitoring, energy studies, and building commissioning.

BOURNE, MA, June 4, 2003 - Onset Computer Corporation, the leader in reliable, battery-powered data loggers, introduces the HOBO 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 HandCar EX software on a Palm' handheld.

For analyzing HOBO Pro data, Onset offers BoxCar® Pro 4.3, an easy-to-use, Windows®-based software package that enables fast, easy logger set up, powerful graphing and analysis, and file export.

HOBO Pro Series data loggers are currently available from Onset Computer Corporation, and are priced from $129 - $189. Quantity discounts are available.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
