BOURNE, MA, March 3, 2006 – Onset Computer Corporation, a leading supplier of data loggers,Mac Compatible Weather Station today announced Mac-compatible, research-grade weather stations.

The 15-channel HOBO Weather Station and 4-channel HOBO Micro Station make it fast and easy for Mac users to measure and record a wide range of environmental conditions. This includes temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, soil moisture, photosynthetic light (PAR), solar radiation, wind speed and direction, leaf wetness, and barometric pressure. Both stations record conditions via Onset plug-and-play smart sensors, which eliminate the need for complicated wiring, programming, and calibration.

To view and analyze climate data, Onset offers HOBOware, a Mac-based graphing and analysis software package. HOBOware, which runs on Mac OS X, combines fast, easy logger launch and readout functions with powerful data-plotting capabilities. An intuitive, graphical user interface allows users to select weather parameters to display, format graphs, perform analysis, save projects for future use, and export data to spreadsheets.
