DATA LOGGERS ASSESS IMPACT OF ELEVATED WATER TEMPERATURES ON CORAL HEALTH

BOURNE, MA, April 15, 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.
