BOURNE, MA, December 11, 2003 — Onset Computer Corporation, the leader in reliable, battery-powered data loggers, today introduced the HOBO U12 Stainless Temp Data Logger, a stainless steel, food-grade data logger designed for food and beverage, pharmaceutical, autoclave, and other industrial applications where high-accuracy temperature data is critical. The logger, which fits into a standard-sized beverage bottleneck, measures and records temperatures from -40 to 125°C and can withstand process conditions from pasteurization to flash freezing and wash down.

"In applications such as food processing, beverage pasteurization, and pharmaceutical storage, there?s a great need for high-accuracy temperature logging at a low cost," said Joanna Phillips, product marketing manager for Onset. "Our new Stainless Temp Logger provides the ideal combination of performance and ruggedness at a significantly lower price than comparable logging solutions."

In addition to offering high accuracy, the U12 Stainless Temp Logger provides highly stable readings by virtue of an internal glass bead thermistor. The logger also offers a direct USB interface for high-speed data offloading, a 43K measurement capacity, and a pressure rating of 2200 psi for autoclave and underwater applications.

For plotting and analyzing data, Onset offers its easy-to-use GreenLine™ software package. GreenLine enables users to launch and readout the loggers with point-and-click simplicity, and offers real-time monitoring capability on a PC. 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, and one-click conversion of data for easy upload into Microsoft? Excel software.

The HOBO U12 Stainless Temp Logger is currently available from Onset, and is priced at $249 U.S. The GreenLine software starter kit, which includes GreenLine software, USB cable, and manual, is priced at $59 U.S and is also currently available.
