Onset's One Millionth HOBO Data LoggerBOURNE, MA, May 17, 2006 —Onset Computer Corporation, a leading supplier of battery-powered data loggers, today announced that the company has shipped its one-millionth HOBO® data logger. The data logger was purchased by Ameresco, the largest independent, comprehensive energy solutions provider in North America, and presented to Ameresco's president and chief executive officer, George P. Sakellaris, at the company's Framingham, MA, headquarters.

"Building our millionth HOBO data logger represents an important milestone for our company," said Jack Sample, president of Onset. "It demonstrates our solid commitment to delivering reliable, affordable data logging solutions — our sole business focus for 25 years — and is a testament to the high level of trust and confidence people have in the HOBO name."

A data logger is an electronic instrument that records measurements of temperature, relative humidity, light intensity, on/off and open/closed state changes, voltage and events over extended periods of time. Most data loggers interface with a personal computer and utilize software to activate the logger and view/analyze the collected data. Customers like Ameresco have used the HOBO data logger effectively to monitor building performance and sustain energy-efficiency solutions for their customers.

"We congratulate Onset Computer Corporation on this exciting milestone and appreciate their success in providing quality, reliable data monitoring equipment," said George P. Sakellaris, founder and CEO of Ameresco. "The HOBO data logger has been one of the data monitoring elements responsible for helping Ameresco's customers achieve accurate, sustainable and well-managed energy efficiency solutions, and Ameresco is pleased to receive the honor of the one-millionth data logging device from Onset."
