Onset: Data Logger for Energy Management
Power loggng system.
Bourne, MA — Onset Computer Corporation has introduced the HOBO UX120 Pulse Logger, a highly versatile, 4-channel energy data logger that combines the functionality of four separate data loggers into a single compact unit.

The new product enables energy management professionals, from energy auditors to building commissioners, to easily track building energy consumption, equipment runtimes, and water and gas flow rates. It can simultaneously measure and record pulse signals, events, state changes, and runtimes, and is capable of storing up to 4 million measurements, enabling longer deployments with fewer site visits. According to the company, the HOBO UX120 offers energy measurement flexibility at a fraction of the cost of current multi-channel pulse logging solutions, and will become a standard toolbox product for energy monitoring applications where fast deployment and a range of energy measurements are needed. For example, while the logger is monitoring power use on one channel, it can independently track gas flow on another, and pump runtimes on still another channel. The pulse logger provides a number of features that provide users with greater control over their deployments. For example, users can start and stop the logger via software or pushbuttons, and set it so it continues to log/overwrite data when the memory is full. It also provides diagnostics using on-board LEDs to assure logger operation which aids the installation process, and enables high-speed data offloads using its USB 2.0 interface.

The company's new HOBO Power Logging System, which merges the HOBO UX120 Pulse Logger with its E50B2 Energy and Power Meter, provides a comprehensive energy and power monitoring solution. The flexible system can measure and record Power Factor (PF), Reactive Power (VAR), and Watt Hours (Wh) and a variety of other parameters. In addition, it accepts voltage ranges of 90 to 600VAC, current ranges of 5 to 32amps, and can be used for both single-and three-phase monitoring applications.

The pulse logger and power logging system are compatible with the company's HOBOware® Pro 3.2 software, which combines powerful graphing and analysis capabilities with a newly-optimized interface for configuring logging options and sensors.
