BOURNE, MA, March 31, 2005 — Onset Computer Corporation, a leading supplier ofHOBO Pendant Data LoggerHOBO Pendant Data Logger battery-powered data loggers, today introduced the HOBO Pendant Logger, a miniature, low-cost data logger for monitoring temperatures during the transport and storage of temperature-sensitive goods. Examples include perishable foods/produce, beverages, chemicals, flowers/plants, and works of art.

New HOBO® Pendant offers reliable temperature recording and visual alarm notification of out-of-range conditions; priced as low as $33

Designed for use in a wide range of environments — from refrigerated trucks to ocean cargo containers — the waterproof HOBO Pendant offers improved performance over previous low-cost data loggers by providing 0.5°C accuracy and up to 52,000 readings. The logger records temperatures around the clock, and provides high and low LED alarms for both shipping and storage applications. For shipping, the alarms offer "on-the-dock" visual verification that temperatures have not exceeded user-defined limits. In storage, the alarms can provide instant visual notification when temperatures go out of range.

"Today, it is more important than ever to monitor temperatures of goods through all stages of the cold chain for regulatory compliance," said Paul Gannett, product marketing manager for Onset. "This is particularly true with highly perishable items, such as poultry, meat, fish and dairy. The new HOBO Pendant logger makes compliance easy for shippers and receivers, delivering accurate, reliable temperature data in a tiny reusable package that fits into any type of shipping or storage container."

Easy, intuitive software:
For plotting and analyzing temperature data, Onset offers HOBOware™ 2.0 for Windows, a highly intuitive graphing and analysis software package. HOBOware provides a user-friendly graphical user interface, and enables shippers and receivers to quickly and easily print out graphs to view and document temperature conditions.

Fast data offload:
The HOBO Pendant offloads data to a PC via a convenient optical USB interface, which enables high-speed data offload (8K in six seconds).
