Next-Generation Weather Monitoring

Description

The HOBO RX3000, Onset’s most flexible remote data logging station, provides instant access to site-specific environmental data anywhere, anytime via the internet. The station combines the versatility and sensor quality of more expensive systems, an onboard LCD display, and the convenience of plug-and-play operation. The RX3000 is a configurable system.

The RX3000 station is the basic component of the cost-effective and scalable HOBOnet Field Monitoring System for crop management, environmental research, and greenhouse operations.

You can customise your RX3000 to suit your specific needs, or you can select one of our Weather Station Kits.

Deployment Friendly

On-board LCD display helps you confirm system operation, sensor connections, cellular signal strength and other parameters before leaving the deployment site.


 

Flexible

With the RX3000 Station, you can configure up to 15 channels of plug-and-play Smart Sensors, or add up to two modules. Modules are available for connecting up to 4 analog sensors or with 3 relay outputs to control devices based on alarm conditions, or a water level module to remotely monitor water level and flow.


 

Field-Proven

The HOBO RX3000 features a double-weatherproof enclosure designed for long-term use – even in harsh environments. Critical electronics are sealed in a secondary enclosure, and weathertight sensor ports keep moisture out.
