BOURNE, MA, October 14, 2009 —Onset (http://www.onsetcomp.com), the world’s leading supplier of data loggers, announced the HOBO® Measurement & Verification System, a portable energy logging system for measuring, analyzing and documenting building energy performance.
The self-contained system makes it convenient and economical for energy performance contractors, energy consultants, and building energy managers to track the performance of building systems, such as chillers and packaged HVAC units, and verify the impact of energy efficiency improvements.
“Due to the large amount of energy efficiency-related dollars being distributed through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, regulators are demanding greater accountability when it comes to building energy performance data,” said Frank Deshaies, product marketing manager for Onset. “The new HOBO Measurement & Verification System provides everything an energy engineer needs – straight out of the box – to handle a variety of M&V projects with a great deal of accuracy and reliability.”
The system, which is housed in a rugged, heavy-duty carrying case, provides pre-wired sensors for quick set up, and includes magnetic mounting feet for fast, secure placement in electrical panels.
Users can plot and analyze energy performance data with the accompanying HOBOware® software. HOBOware provides an intuitive, graphical user interface that enables users to quickly and easily graph, analyze and print data files, as well as export the data to Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet programs.
The HOBO Measurement & Verification System is available in both single-phase and three-phase models. Both models include a 4-channel HOBO Micro Station data logger, energy sensors, software, and associated cables and accessories. The single-phase model is priced at $899; the three-phase model is priced at $999. Both systems are available immediately from Onset.
