Part Number - U30-GSM
HOBO U30 Cellular Data Logger
15 Channel Web-based Monitoring System
Requires a HOBOlink service plan and HOBOware software (USB interface cable included w/CD purchase).
This item is discontinued; upgrade for this product is the HOBO RX3000. A web-based, 15-channel data logging system for a broad range of energy and weather monitoring applications. Transmits data to the web via cellular communications for easy access from internet-enabled devices. In addition, alarms can be configured to generate text messages and emails when data goes out of range.
• Web-based energy and environmental monitoring
• Electronics are housed in an industrial-grade, tamperproof enclosure
• Setup is quick and easy with plug-and-play sensors
• Measures a wide range of energy and environmental parameters
• Cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, direct USB options available
• Optional analog inputs with configurable sensor power
Normal operating range: -20°C to 40°C (-4°F to 104°F)
Extended operating range: -40 to 60°C (-40 to 140°F) - see "Rechargeable Battery service Life" for impact of operations in Extended Operating Range.
Note: The GSM radio module will not communicate below -30°C (-22°F)
