BOURNE, MA, March 21, 2006 – Onset Computer Corporation, a leading supplier of battery-powered data loggers, today introduced the HOBO U-Shuttle, a new data transport device for use with HOBO data loggers.

The new Shuttle allows users to conveniently offload HOBO U-Series and FlexSmart data loggers at multiple locations in a facility and safely transport the data back to a PC or Mac computer for analysis. Key features include:

• Bright LCD display that provides current sensor readings, battery and logger status.
• Large memory capable of storing data from multiple data loggers.
• Convenient, direct USB connection to host computer and easy and fast offload with Onset’s HOBOware
® software.

“In many indoor environmental monitoring applications, particularly those where multiple HOBO data loggers are deployed throughout a facility, users want the convenience of being able to offload and restart loggers without bringing them back to a host computer,” said Frank Deshaies, product marketing manager for Onset. “Our new U-Shuttle provides this capability, making it faster and easier than ever for users to retrieve data without interrupting logger deployment.”

The HOBO U-Shuttle is priced at $249, and will be available in April 2006 from Onset.
