BOURNE, MA, December 2, 2004 — Onset Computer Corporation, the leader in reliable, battery-powered data loggers, today introduced the HOBO® LCD Temp/RH Logger, a low-cost monitoring system for monitoring temperature and humidity levels in server rooms, data centers, and server cabinets. The logger records and displays temperature (-4°F - +122°F) and humidity (15% - 95%), and can activate an optional Auto Dialer unit that alerts IT administrators to out-of-range conditions via phone or pager. The wall-mounted system is battery-powered, enabling it to fit easily into existing server room designs.

New HOBO LCD Temp/RH Logger tracks server room temperatures, reduces risk of technology equipment failures.

"In server rooms, even a slight increase in temperature can greatly increase the chances of equipment failures and data loss," says Joanna Phillips, product marketing manager for Onset. "By offering a low-cost monitoring system that can be easily mounted, IT administrators and managers are in a better position to proactively prevent problems before they occur and better ensure systems uptime."

The HOBO LCD Temp/RH Logger can operate for up to one year using off-the-shelf alkaline batteries, and its easy-to-read LCD display indicates current temperature and humidity conditions, as well as remaining memory capacity and battery status for ease of maintenance. Onset's BoxCar® Pro software for Windows makes it easy to set high and low-level alarm thresholds, and allows users to view collected data graphically in order to understand temperature and humidity conditions over time.

The HOBO LCD Temp/RH Logger and optional Auto Dialer unit are currently available.
