"Our expert editors select up to 10 of the most significant products introduced during the quarter — in each of seven categories — and then, using an electronic balloting mechanism, we submit these products with the accompanying editorial reviews to selected, qualified readers of EE Times and eeProduct Center," explains Marty Gold, executive editor of eeProduct Center.

"We're truly excited that both editors and readers of EE Times recognized the HOBO U12 Thermocouple as an important test and measurement tool," said Mark McSherry, president of Onset Computer Corporation. "Like all of our HOBO data logger products, the U12 Thermocouple offers users a very straightforward and affordable way to monitor temperatures without having to rely on cumbersome chart recorders or expensive PC-based data acquisition systems."

The HOBO U12 Thermocouple Logger is a self-contained, 12-bit resolution data logger for measuring and recording temperatures from a variety of thermocouple probes. The unit accepts any J, K, S, or T thermocouple, and provides high-accuracy measurements over wide temperature ranges.
