Marine biologists and oceanographers interested in recording water temperatures may be interested in Onset Computer Corp.’s new HOBO Water Temp Pro v2, a Mac-compatible data logger. The $110 data logger is now available.
The HOBO Water Temp Pro v2 is encased in a durable polypropelene housing that can withstand years of use in fresh or salt water, according to Onset, and has been rated for use in temperatures up to 50 degrees Centigrade. It can measure and record water temperature for more than one year before reaching memory capacity.
The device is compatible with Onset’s new HOBO Waterproof Shuttle, and can be offloaded using an optic USB interface. It is depth-rated up to 400 feet.
Onset Computer Corp. has designed the HOBO Water Temp Pro v2 to measure water temperatures in applications ranging from coral reef studies to stream habitat research.
The HOBO Water Temp Pro v2, HOBO Waterproof Shuttle and HOBOware software are all priced separately.
