Weather station Onset has announced the HOBO RX3000 Station, a data-logging weather station that offers instant access to site-specific environmental data via the internet. Suitable for agricultural research, ecology studies, climate research and other applications, the station combines flexibility and good sensor quality with the convenience of plug-and-play operation. The unit can be configured with up to 15 channels of plug-and-play smart sensors for measuring weather parameters including temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, soil moisture, wind speed and direction, leaf wetness, barometric pressure, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and solar radiation. Swap-in sensor modules enable an additional eight channels of analog sensors to be added and the station is able to power external sensors requiring 12 V excitation power, extending the range of measurements that are possible. The station’s easy-to-view LCD display helps the user visually confirm logger operation, sensor connections, cellular signal strength and other system parameters before leaving the deployment site. The LCD also displays fault codes that enable users to diagnose any system issues in the field and know right away if something isn’t working properly. The station features a solar panel- or AC-powered rechargeable battery and a rugged, double-weatherproof enclosure that provides long-term monitoring, even in harsh outdoor environments. Alarm capabilities notify users of sensor or system failures remotely so they can be fixed before critical data is lost, eliminating the need to travel out to the field site to check on system operation. The product is equipped with cellular communications and transmits data to Onset’s HOBOlink web-enabled software platform. It can also be equipped with Wi-Fi and ethernet communication options.
