"HOBOware puts today's most advanced data logger technology into the hands of Mac users, who traditionally have had very few Mac-based logging solutions to choose from," said Paul Gannett, Product Marketing Manager for Onset. "This reinforces our ongoing commitment to the Macintosh platform, and will broaden the applications for our technology in Mac-based research, commercial and educational environments."

HOBOware enables users to quickly launch and readout U12 loggers with point-and-click simplicity, and is able to display data in three viewing formats: graphical plot, tabular, and deployment statistics. The software also offers a number of other convenient features, such as the ability to view multiple channels from a single logger on one graph, zoom tools for close-up viewing of data, and one-click conversion of data for easy upload into spreadsheets and other programs.

U12 loggers provide high-resolution measurements, exceptional long-term data accuracy (RH ±2.5%, Temperature ±0.35°C), and high-speed data offload.
