Onset, a data logger manufacturer, introduces the HOBO MX1102, a data logger that records and transmits carbon dioxide (CO2), temperature, and relative humidity data wirelessly to mobile devices via Bluetooth Smart.
Building off the success of Onset’s HOBO MX1101 Bluetooth temperature and humidity logger, the self-contained MX1102 is ideal for indoor air quality studies and environmental monitoring in schools, hospitals, laboratories and other environments. It measures CO2 over a range of 0 to 5,000 parts per million (ppm) and enables users to access the data from mobile devices within a 100-foot range. There are no cables to deal with, no computer software to install, no devices to pair, and no internet access required.
Designed for hassle-free deployment, the HOBO MX1102 features an easy-to-read LCD that displays current readings and logger status, and it can run for six months on four, user-replaceable AA batteries. The logger also features an onboard USB port for users who want to configure and offload their CO2 loggers with a computer. This port also provides the option of powering the logger via USB for applications that require more than six months of monitoring or faster logging rates.
Onset’s HOBOmobile app makes it a snap to configure HOBO MX1102 CO2 loggers and manage the collected data. Using a mobile phone or tablet, users can view data, check the operational status of loggers, share data files and graph images for analysis in Excel, Numbers, and other applications, and store data in the cloud.
HOBOmobile also makes it fast and easy to set up audible alarm notifications so users are immediately notified of problems. For example, if CO2 concentrations in a school go beyond a set threshold, or humidity conditions reach a point where mold could develop, the MX1102 logger will beep and display alarm notifications so users can take corrective action.
