Heating, ventilation and air conditioning/refrigeration (HVAC/R) systems regulate thermal comfort inside of buildings and maintain adequate air quality by circulating and replenishing interior air with fresh outdoor air. Building operators and mechanical contractors who oversee these systems strive to ensure that HVAC/R equipment is running efficiently so that a proper interior environment is sustained and operating costs held at reasonable levels.
To achieve better performance from HVAC/R systems, interior monitoring can provide valuable feedback in terms of system operations, leading to insights for correcting inefficiencies and optimizing equipment. Monitoring can also identify opportunities for energy efficiency upgrades and provide validation for improvements that contribute to certification.
Onset HOBO data loggers enable accurate monitoring of interior conditions, helping building professionals diagnose mechanical issues, locate sources that compromise comfort, and better balance healthy and comfortable interior environments with energy costs.
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 award-winning HOBOnet System from Onset provides a cost-effective and scalable solution for web-enabled monitoring of indoor conditions in warehouses, cold storage facilities, data centres, museums, commercial and residential buildings, and more.
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.
