Light Intensity Data Loggers & Sensors
The new HOBO Weather Station Starter Kit combines our most rugged data logging weather station with out-of-the-box convenience.
The U30/NRC accepts up to 10 plug-and-play Smart Sensors. Just plug in your sensor and it’s automatically recognized – no programming, wiring or calibration necessary. With this kit you can measure temperature, relative humidity, wind speed/direction. Simply select the HOBO Weather Station starter system and your choice of either a 2-Meter or 3-Meter Tripod Kit and go!
Software ordered separately. Compatible with HOBOware and HOBOware Pro software for logger setup, graphing and analysis.$1399
The HOBO RX3000 is Onset’s next-generation remote data logging station that provides instant access to site-specific environmental data anywhere, anytime via the internet. The new station combines the flexibility and sensor quality of more expensive systems, an onboard LCD display, and the convenience of plug-and-play operation.
The HOBO U30-ETH is a web-based, 15-channel data logging system for a broad range of energy and weather monitoring applications. The system transmits data to the web through an Ethernet network connection for easy access from internet-enabled devices. In addition, alarms can be configured to generate text messages and emails when data goes out of range.
This item is discontinued. The upgrade for this product is the RX3000. The HOBO Cellular-U30 is a web-based, 15-channel data logging system for a broad range of energy and weather monitoring applications. The system transmits data to the web via cellular communications for easy access from internet-enabled devices. In addition, alarms can be configured to generate text messages and emails when data goes out of range.
The HOBO U30-WIF is a web-based, 15-channel data logging system for a broad range of energy and weather monitoring applications. The system transmits data to the web via WiFi communications for easy access from internet-enabled devices. In addition, alarms can be configured to generate text messages and emails when data goes out of range.
This rugged weather station is Onset’s most durable outdoor environmental monitoring solution. Users can easily configure the HOBO U30-NRC Weather Station to fit their application needs. Use up to 15 channels to collect environmental data and then upload to HOBOware® software for analysis. HOBOware Pro is recommended for extended features, see the comparison here.
Accurately monitor outdoor weather conditions with the HOBO Micro Station. This rugged data logger starts at $231 and is popular because of its compact size. It accepts up to four plug-and-play smart sensors, and has over 500k of nonvolatile flash data storage. The Micro Station can run up to 1 year on four standard AA batteries.$231
Measure temperature, relative humidity, light intensity, and more with the HOBO U12-012. With 12-bit resolution measurements, this data logger gathers a range of recorded data and stores 43,000 measurements.$140
This HOBO Pendant® data logger is a miniature, waterproof two-channel temperature and relative light level data logger. The 8K model comes at a great value and is suitable for indoor, outdoor, and underwater applications. This logger holds approximately 6.5K of 10-bit readings. Use a solar radiation shield for accurate temperature measurement in sunlight.See RS1 Solar Radiation Shield (assembly required) and M-RSA (pre-assembled) Solar Radiation Shield. Note that using a solar radition shield prevents the use of the light sensor.$47
This miniature data logger can record temperature and relative light levels. Complete with waterproof casing, this product is designed for indoor, outdoor, and underwater deployment. This model can store approximately 52,000 measurments of 10-bit readings.$64
Effectively measure light levels with this silicon pyranometer sensor. The Solar Radiation Smart Sensor enables rapid deployment. Since HOBO data loggers recognize this sensor, no complicated programming or setup is required. This product offers a measurement range of 0 to 1280 W/m2 over a spectral range of 300 to 1100 nm. A measurement averaging mode is available.$210
The Photosynthetic Light (PAR) Smart Sensor is intended to measure light intensity for the frequencies relevant for photosynthesis. This sensor has a measurement range of 0 to 2500 umol/m2/sec over wavelengths from 400 to 700 nm. Enclosed in a anodized aluminum housing with acrylic diffuser and o-ring seal, this model has a 3m cable; a light sensor bracket and light sensor level are recommended.$220
