Onset Computer recently announced enhancements to the company’s HOBO U30 web-based energy and environmental monitoring systems.
Expanded cellular network coverage — Using a new, low-cost global cellular network plan through Wyless, HOBO U30/GSM system customers can now use their monitoring systems in more than 30 countries. This flexible data network provides the added advantage of being able to deploy and remotely access U30 systems in any AT&T or T-Mobile coverage area within the United States.
Enhancements include the following:
Customizable display — Customers can now easily configure data display settings within HOBOlink — Onset’s web-enabled software platform for HOBO U30 systems. For example, users can now create a single screen that displays key measurement data and trends for HOBO U30 systems deployed in multiple locations.
Eco-friendly weatherproof enclosure — The HOBO U30 system’s weatherproof, NEMA-rated enclosure is now constructed of materials derived from 85 percent post-consumer plastic waste. This boosts the company’s efforts to help preserve the environment, while providing customers with a rugged, attractive enclosure designed to withstand harsh conditions.
“These enhancements will provide a number of exciting benefits for HOBO U30 customers in both the environmental research and energy management market segments,” said Paul Gannett, product marketing manager for Onset. “Researchers conducting ecology and climate change studies, for example, will benefit from being able to buy U30 systems here in the U.S. and deploy them in other countries. Energy consultants performing building energy performance contracts will appreciate the ability to create more customized displays of real-time energy use data and, of course, the new environmentally-responsible case design.”
