ONSET ANNOUNCES NEW DATA LOGGER FOR BUILDING PERFORMANCE MONITORING
New HOBO UX120-006M Analog Logger provides twice the accuracy of previous models, flexible support for a wide range of sensors
BOURNE, MA, January 16, 2014 – Onset, a world leader in data loggers, today announced a new high-performance, LCD display data logger for building performance monitoring applications.
Starting at $139, the HOBO UX120-006M Analog Logger provides twice the accuracy of previous models, a deployment-friendly LCD, and support for up to four external sensors for measuring temperature, current, CO2, voltage, and more. This enables energy engineers, facility managers, and others to easily and affordably solve a range of building performance applications, including energy audits, building commissioning studies, and equipment scheduling optimization.
“Our next-generation HOBO UX Series platform has been a major step forward for Onset in terms of providing customers with an ideal combination of deployment ease-of-use, measurement accuracy, and convenience,” said Jessica Frackelton, senior manager of product marketing for Onset. “With our latest model, the UX120-006M, customers can now have a simple and reliable amp logging solution with twice the accuracy and memory for less than $150. These features will enable customers to manage projects with the logging frequency they need, without having to get into complicated deployments setups involving multiple loggers for a single task.”
Fast, easy deployment
The HOBO UX120 Analog Logger streamlines building performance monitoring applications in a number of ways. For example, it features an easy-to-view LCD that visually confirms logger operation and battery status, eliminating the need to connect the logger to a computer to view the information. As the logger records, the LCD provides a near real-time readout of the current measurements as well as minimum, maximum, average, and standard deviation statistics. On-screen alarms can be set for each channel to notify users when a sensor reading exceeds high or low thresholds.
The logger also features a large memory capacity capable of storing 1.9 million measurements. This enables the loggers to be deployed for longer periods between offloads. Firmware is user upgradeable, and the logger offers start, stop, and restart pushbuttons to make installation fast and easy.
Once data has been recorded with the HOBO UX120 Analog Logger, it can be easily viewed in graph form and analyzed using Onset’s HOBOware® Pro software. Time-saving tools allow users to batch-configure and readout dozens of loggers in a fraction of the time it would take with previous generations – a particular advantage in large-scale monitoring projects. The software also features a Bulk Export tool that allows users to export data files to text format for use in spreadsheets.
