Onset recently announced the HOBO Measurement & Verification System, a portable energy logging system for measuring, analyzing, and documenting building energy performance. The self-contained system makes it convenient and economical for energy performance contractors, energy consultants, and building energy managers to track the performance of building systems such as chillers and packaged HVAC units, and verify the impact of energy efficiency improvements.
The system, which is housed in a rugged, heavy-duty carrying case, provides pre-wired sensors for quick set-up and includes magnetic mounting feet for fast, secure placement in electrical panels. Users can plot and analyze energy performance data with the accompanying HOBOware software. HOBOware provides an intuitive, graphical user interface that enables users to quickly and easily graph, analyze, and print data files, as well as export the data to Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet programs. The HOBO Measurement & Verification System is available in both single-phase and three-phase models.
