Onset Computer Corp. has a new weather station kit that combines research-grade data logging with out-of-the-box convenience.
The company’s HOBO U30/NRC Weather Station Starter Kit is a new weather monitoring kit that combines Onset’s most rugged, research-grade data logging weather station with a suite of plug-and-play weather sensors.
It can be used for agricultural research, ecology studies, wind monitoring, and other applications. The new weather station kit provides a number of key advantages, including:
- Plug-and-play performance. The U30/NRC accepts up to 10 plug-and-play weather smart sensors that can be simply plugged in to the logger and automatically recognized without complicated wiring, programming, or calibration.
- Weatherproof design. All system electronics are tightly integrated within a NEMA 6-rated, double weatherproof enclosure ensuring years of dependable operation in harsh environmental conditions.
- Easy data retrieval. With the optional HOBO U30 Shuttle, data from U30/NRC systems can quickly and safely be offloaded in the field and downloaded to a PC or Mac for analysis with HOBOware Pro software.
The kit includes a HOBO U30/NRC data logger, a solar panel for recharging the battery, temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed and direction sensors, and a solar radiation shield. It is available immediately from Onset and is priced at $1,400.
