Low-Cost Energy Monitoring Solution

Onset announced the HOBO® kWh Monitoring Kit, a low-cost, portable system for measuring and recording energy consumption in buildings. The new kit, which bundles a matchbox-sized HOBO State data logger with Continental Control System's revenue-grade kWh and current sensors, gives energy engineers, auditors, building commissioners, and others a simple and cost-effective way to log building electric use at a fraction of the cost of meter-based solutions.

As one of the industry's lowest-cost kWh data logging solutions, the kit provides rapid deployment and high accuracy measurements, and is ideal for use in commercial, industrial, and residential applications. Key advantages include:

  • Flexibility to log up to 500,000 single or three phase measurements running 240 to 480 volts o  LCD display to enable easy viewing of latest kWh readings
  •  HOBOware Pro software (priced separately) for easy logger set-up and scaling of kWh measurement data

The HOBO kWh Monitoring Kit leverages the power of Onset's HOBOware® software, enabling users to plot and analyze equipment power consumption data in a few simple steps. The software, which runs on Windows or Mac, features time-saving tools that allow users to batch-configure and readout multiple loggers in a fraction of the time it would take with previous generations. Additionally, the software features simple-to-use export tools that allow users to pull their data files to text format for use in spreadsheets and other programs.

The HOBO kWh Kit is available immediately from Onset. Pricing starts at $349. Visit for pricing details and technical specifications.
