Onset's HOBO energy consumption kWh Monitoring Kit measures and records energy consumption in buildings
Data logger company Onset announced the HOBO kWh Monitoring Kit, a portable system for measuring and recording energy consumption in buildings. The 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 measurements, and is designed for use in commercial, industrial, and residential applications.
The HOBO kWh Monitoring Kit leverages 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 export tools that allow users to pull their data files to text format for use in spreadsheets and other programs.
