BOURNE, MA — Onset, a world leader in data loggers, has announced the HOBO® kWh Monitoring Kit, a low-cost, portable system for measuring and recording energy consumption in buildings. The new kit, which bundles a matchbox-sized HOBO State data logger with Continental Control System’s revenue-grade kWh and current sensors, gives energy engineers, auditors, building commissioners, and others a simple and cost-effective way to log building electric use at a fraction of the cost of meter-based solutions.
As one of the industry’s lowest-cost kWh data logging solutions, the kit provides rapid deployment and high accuracy measurements, and is ideal for use in commercial, industrial, and residential applications. Key advantages include:
- Flexibility to log up to 500,000 single or three phase measurements running 240 to 480 volts
- LCD display to enable easy viewing of latest kWh readings
- HOBOware Pro software (priced separately) for easy logger set-up and scaling of kWh measurement data
“This new kit makes energy monitoring fool-proof and accessible by providing users with all the elements needed in a flexible configuration for permanent or temporary data collection,” said Jessica Frackelton, senior manager of product marketing for Onset. “This will make it easier than ever for our building performance customers to identify energy-use patterns and quantify savings.”
The HOBO kWh Monitoring Kit leverages the power of Onset’s HOBOware® software, enabling users to plot and analyze equipment power consumption data in a few simple steps. The software, which runs on Windows or Mac, features time-saving tools that allow users to batch-configure and readout multiple loggers in a fraction of the time it would take with previous generations. Additionally, the software features simple-to-use export tools that allow users to pull their data files to text format for use in spreadsheets and other programs.
