Onset Computer Corp. (http://www.onsetcomp.com/), the HOBO data logger
company, has introduced the HOBO U30/NRC Weather Station Starter Kit,
a new weather monitoring kit that combines the company’s
research-grade data logging weather station with a suite of
plug-and-play weather sensors.

It’s designed for agricultural research, ecology studies, wind
monitoring, and other application. The U30/NRC accepts up to 10
plug-and-play weather smart sensors that can be plugged in to the
logger and automatically recognized without complicated wiring,
programming, or calibration.

All system electronics are integrated within a NEMA six-rated, double
weatherproof enclosure ensuring years of dependable operation in
harsh environmental conditions. With the optional HOBO U30 Shuttle,
data from U30/NRC systems can be offloaded in the field and
downloaded to a Mac or PC 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’s available immediately from Onset and is priced
at US$1,400.
