BOURNE, MA, June 2, 2004 —Onset Computer Corporation, a leading supplier of battery-powered data loggers and weather stations, today announced the HOBO® U12 Stainless Temp Logger, a stainless steel data logger designed for deepwater oceanographic monitoring applications where high-accuracy temperature data is critical. The logger measures and records temperatures from -40 to 125°C and has a pressure rating of 2200 psi, enabling it to be used at depths of up to 1500 meters (4,900 feet).

"Onset temperature loggers are already widely used in underwater research applications up to 300m" said Paul Gannett, product marketing manager for Onset. "With our new Temp Logger, oceanographic researchers can now cost-effectively track water temperatures in deep sea and sub-seafloor applications."

In addition to offering high accuracy, the HOBO Stainless Temp Logger features a direct USB interface for high-speed data offloading, a 43K measurement capacity, and a three-year factory-replaceable battery.

For data plotting and analysis, Onset offers GreenLine™ software (for Windows), and HOBOware™ software (for Macintosh). These software packages enable users to launch and readout the data logger with point-and-click simplicity, and enable one-click conversion of data for easy upload into spreadsheet applications.
