FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ONSET ANNOUNCES CONDUCTIVITY DATA LOGGER
BOURNE, MA, March 16, 2010 — Onset (http://www.onsetcomp.com), the world’s leading supplier of data loggers, today announced the HOBO® Conductivity Logger, a high-accuracy, easy-to-maintain data logger that substantially reduces the cost of measuring conductance and temperature in streams, lakes, and other freshwater sources.
Ideal for monitoring aquifers for saltwater intrusion and road and agricultural runoff, the HOBO Conductivity Logger provides a number of features that greatly simplify maintenance and minimize drift-related measurement errors. For example, it was designed with a non-contact sensor that makes it less susceptible to drift than loggers that utilize contact, electrode-based sensors. The logger also provides open access to the sensor for easy cleaning, and software-based drift compensation using calibration points from the start and end of each deployment.
Powerful, intuitive software Onset’s HOBOware® Pro software makes it easy to graph and analyze conductivity data, and offers a number of features that simplify conductivity monitoring projects. It provides a choice of methods for easy, accurate conversion of conductivity data to specific conductance for various water types. The software also makes it easy to combine data sets from multiple loggers, and offers one-click data export to Microsoft Excel and other programs.
Convenient data offload The HOBO Conductivity Logger offloads data to a PC via a convenient optical USB interface, which provides high-speed, reliable data offload in wet environments. The optical design eliminates problems associated with failure-prone mechanical connectors. The logger is also compatible with Onset’s HOBO Waterproof Shuttle, which provides easy and reliable data retrieval and transport.
Pricing and availability The HOBO Conductivity Logger is available immediately from Onset, and is priced at $699. Software and accessories are priced separately. Visit http://www.onsetcomp.com/products/data-loggers/u24-001 for pricing details and technical specifications.
