New HOBO U12 Stainless Temp Logger submersible to 1500 meters, provides direct USB interface.

Onset Computer Corporation, a supplier of battery-powered data loggers and weather stations, announced the HOBO U12 Stainless Temp Logger, a stainless steel data logger designed for deepwater oceanographic monitoring applications where high-accuracy temperature data is critical. The logger measures and records temperatures from -40 to 125C° and has a pressure rating of 2200 psi, enabling it to be used at depths of up to 1500 meters (4,900 feet).

In addition to offering high accuracy, the HOBO Stainless Temp Logger features a direct USB interface for high-speed data offloading, a 43K measurement capacity, and a three-year factory-replaceable battery.

For data plotting and analysis, Onset offers GreenLine software (for Windows), and HOBOware software (for Macintosh). These software packages enable users to launch and readout the data logger with point-and-click simplicity, and enable one-click conversion of data for easy upload into spreadsheet applications.

The HOBO U12 Stainless Temp Logger is currently available from Onset, and is priced at $249 U.S. Greenline and HOBOware software packages are priced at $59, and are also currently available from Onset.
