ONSET ANNOUNCES ETHERNET-BASED ENERGY MONITORING SYSTEM
BOURNE, MA, October 30, 2008 —Onset Computer Corporation, the “HOBO” data logger company, today unveiled the HOBO® U30-ETH Remote Monitoring System, an industrial-grade energy monitoring system that provides real-time, remote access to energy and environmental data over any Ethernet network.
As the latest addition to Onset’s line of HOBO U30 remote monitoring systems, the HOBO U30-ETH allows energy managers, facility managers, and others to easily implement facility-wide, networked monitoring solutions for tracking energy usage, HVAC/R systems performance, and green building efficiency. Users can simply plug in their choice of sensors, connect an Ethernet cable, and remotely access and manage HOBO U30 systems distributed throughout their facility. This, in turn, enables users to optimize data collection efficiency while generating long-term, facility-wide energy profiles at lower costs.
Key system features include:
- Powerful alarm capabilities – The HOBO U30-ETH enables users to set up alarm conditions for any connected sensors and receive automatic notification via email or cell phone text messages when monitored conditions exceed user-defined limits.
- Industrial-grade dependability – The system features a NEMA 6-rated, double weatherproof enclosure for years of dependable operation in harsh environmental conditions. This is an advantage, for example, in applications where rooftop HVAC or other outdoor systems needs to be monitored.
- Full suite of sensors – Users have access to a wide selection of sensors for measuring a range of parameters including temperature, relative humidity, kW, kWh, AC voltage, AC amps, DC amps, gauge and differential pressure, CO2, and more.
To view and analyze data, Onset offers HOBOlink®, a revolutionary new web-enabled software platform. HOBOlink allows users to access current and historical data, set alarm notifications and relay activations, and manage and control HOBO U30-ETH systems right from their desktop.
Pricing and Availability
The HOBO U30-ETH will be available from Onset in November, 2008, and is priced at $675. Sensors, data plans and accessories are priced separately. See http://www.onsetcomp.com for more details.
