Understanding where energy consumption and loss occurs within buildings is necessary for developing a strategy to improve energy efficiency. As an important first step towards energy conservation, energy audits work to analyze energy flow within buildings and identify opportunities to optimize performance and better manage energy expenses.
In conducting energy audits, a range of diverse information is collected and assimilated for analysis. This can include system performance data, energy usage, weather data, and information related to the building’s features and envelope.
Onset provides a suite of industry-leading data loggers, sensors, and software for collecting and analyzing key information utilized in energy audits. Onset’s industry-leading tools allow energy auditing experts to capture accurate energy and performance data for characterizing the energy profile of buildings, managing peak demand, reducing energy losses, and ensuring the efficient operation of equipment, leading to better decisions for saving energy.
Onset’s HOBO MX1101 data logger measures and transmits temperature and relative humidity data wirelessly to mobile devices via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology.
The self-contained wireless data logger, which works with Onset’s free HOBOmobile® app for logger setup and data management, enables you to access data anytime from mobile device for iOS or Android over a 100-foot range, and it requires no dedicated equipment beyond a mobile device for configuring the logger or reading out data.
Using Onset’s free HOBOmobile® app, you can view data in graphs, check the operational status of loggers, configure alarm notifications, and share data files.
Remotely access your data in Onset’s cloud-based HOBOlink software with the new MX Gateway.
Onset's HOBO Plug Load Data Logger is a high-accuracy, easy-to-deploy data logger that measures and records the power and energy consumption of 120V plug loads from office equipment, vending machines, and other devices.
The UL certified logger provides 0.5% measurement accuracy with a measurement resolution of 1 watt, making it an ideal choice for building audits where detailed energy use data is required. The rugged housing is designed to withstand the rigors of real-world handling, providing reliable performance despite bumps, drops, and use under desks.
The HOBO Motor On/Off data logger records motor on and off conditions within an AC magnetic field with its internal sensor, or mechanical contact closures from external sensing devices. This data logger is ideal for tracking the usage and runtimes of motors, pumps, compressors, and other equipment. The HOBO UX90-004 Motor On/Off Data Logger is available in a standard 128 KB memory model (UX90-004) capable of 84,650 measurements and an expanded 512KB memory version (UX90-004M) capable of over 346,795 measurements.
