July 28, 2009 – Onset Computer Corporation, recently introduced the HOBO U30/NRC Weather Station Starter Kit, a new weather monitoring kit that combines the company’s most rugged, research-grade data logging weather station with a suite of plug-and-play weather sensors.
 
Ideal 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 HOBO U30/NRC Weather Station Starter 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.
