Understanding where energy consumption and loss occurs within buildings is necessary for developing a strategy to improve energy efficiency. As an important first step towards energy conservation, energy audits work to analyse energy flow within buildings and identify opportunities to optimise performance and better manage energy expenses.
In conducting energy audits, a range of diverse information is collected and assimilated for analysis. This can include system performance data, energy usage, weather data, and information related to the building’s features and envelope.
Onset provides a suite of industry-leading data loggers, sensors, and software for collecting and analysing key information utilised in energy audits. Onset’s industry-leading tools allow energy auditing experts to capture accurate energy and performance data for characterizing the energy profile of buildings, managing peak demand, reducing energy losses, and ensuring the efficient operation of equipment, leading to better decisions for saving energy.
The HOBO MX1104 multi-channel data logger measures and transmits temperature, relative humidity, and light intensity data wirelessly. It also includes an external analogue input to attach a variety of additional sensors.
The HOBO UX120 Pulse Logger is a highly versatile, 4-channel energy data logger that combines the functionality of four separate data loggers into one compact unit. It enables energy management professionals – from energy auditors to building commissioners – to easily track building energy consumption, equipment runtimes, and water and gas flow rates.
The HOBO State/Pulse/Event/Runtime data logger records state changes, electronic pulses and mechanical or electrical contact closures from external sensing devices. This logger is ideal for monitoring energy consumption, mechanical equipment operation, and water and gas flow.
The HOBO Motor On/Off data logger records motor on and off conditions within an AC magnetic field with its internal sensor, or mechanical contact closures from external sensing devices. This logger is ideal for tracking the usage & runtimes of motors, pumps, compressors, and other equipment.
