Data logger supplier Onset Computer Corp. announced that the company’s web-based HOBO U30 Remote Monitoring Systems are now compatible with NorthWrite, Inc.’s Energy Expert software platform.

The Energy Expert software converts raw building energy and environmental data collected with HOBO U30 Systems into sophisticated, graphical “smart models” that predict building energy consumption. The information is delivered over the Web, and provides building managers and energy service consultants with easy-to-understand, real-time feedback on building energy use.

“While we are able to provide our customers with instant access to energy and environmental data via Onset’s HOBOlink Website, there is a segment of the market that requires data to be displayed in a very specific way,” said Mark Hruska, chief technical officer for Onset. “For this reason, we developed a set of web services which NorthWrite has used to incorporate real-time data from HOBO U30 systems into their own software. This, in turn, enables Onset and Northwrite customers to combine best-in-class energy monitoring hardware with a more customized dashboard software solution.”

The HOBO systems can measure and record up to 15 channels of energy and environmental data.
