Onset Computer Corporation Introduces New Thermocouple Logger

BOURNE, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 20, 2004 -- New HOBO(R) U12 Thermocouple Logger Accepts J, K, S, or T Thermocouple Probes, Monitors Temperatures up to 3200 degrees F

Onset Computer Corporation, the leader in reliable, battery-powered data loggers, today introduced the HOBO U12 Thermocouple Logger, a 12-bit resolution data logger for measuring and recording temperatures from J, K, S, or T thermocouple probes. When combined with a weatherproof enclosure, the U12 Thermocouple Logger can be used in a variety of outdoor temperature monitoring applications, such as tracking temperatures during controlled forest fire burns.

Key features include:

-- Choice of external probes - Single-channel logger accommodates J, K, S, and T thermocouple type probes (purchased separately) with standard subminiature connectors. Fine-tip thermocouple probes provide fast response times and enable easy, non-invasive placement inside small objects.

-- Wide temperature range - logger can measure and record temperatures from -200 degrees F to 3200 degrees F

-- Flexible software support - users can choose either Windows or Mac OS X software to plot and analyze data.

-- Direct USB interface - enables high-speed data offload (43,000 measurements in as little as 30 seconds).

For data plotting and analysis, Onset offers GreenLine(R) software (for Windows), and HOBOware(TM) software (for Macintosh). These software packages enable users to launch and readout HOBO U12 loggers with point-and-click simplicity, and offer a number of other convenient features, such as one-click conversion of data for easy upload into spreadsheet applications.

The HOBO U12 Thermocouple Logger is currently available from Onset, and is priced at $119 U.S. Greenline and HOBOware software packages are priced at $59 U.S. and are also currently available. J, K, and T Thermocouple probes are sold separately, and are priced from $15 - $55 U.S.
