HOBO data loggers requires HOBOware software (USB interface cable included w/CD purchase) and a communications device. HOBOware Pro is required when using the U-DTW-1 Waterproof shuttle. See compatible items below or build your kit above.


The HOBO Pro v2 Temperature/Relative Humidity data logger is a weatherproof data logger with built-in temperature and relative humidity sensors. The Relative Humidity sensor provides superior durability in humid environments and is user-replaceable.

Optical Interface for data transfer

Highlighted Features

  • Weatherproof housing for use in outdoor or condensing environments
  • High accuracy
  • Replaceable Relative Humidity sensor provides fast response and superior recovery from condensing conditions
  • Small-diameter external sensor versions for measurements in tight spaces
  • Optic USB interface for fast and reliable download
  • Compatible with HOBOware and HOBOware Pro software for logger setup, graphing and analysis (HOBOware Pro is required when using the U-DTW-1 Waterproof shuttle)

Relative Humidity Sensor (U23-001, U23-002 only)
Operation range 0-100% RH, -40° to 70°C (-40° to 158°F) Exposure to conditions below -20°C (-4°F)
or above 95%
RH may temporarily increase the maximum RH sensor error by an additional 1%

Accuracy: ±2.5% from 10% to 90% RH (typical), to a maximum of ±3.5% including hysteresis. See Plot B for full range.

Resolution: 0.03%

Response time
