As weather patterns are changing, it is more important than ever for researchers and growers to have a reliable system for recording and responding to climate conditions. Onset, a world leader in data loggers and weather stations, announced the launch of the new low-cost, web-enabled HOBO MicroRX Station.

With 4G cellular technology for wide coverage and compatibility with the latest mobile networks, and station-side alarms, including a new accumulated rainfall alarm, the MicroRX makes it easier than ever to get better insights by remotely accessing data and receiving real-time alerts of critical conditions.
 
The HOBO MicroRX Station, combined with Onset’s research-grade plug-and-play environmental sensors, delivers data to the powerful cloud-based HOBOlink® software, featuring easy-to-create custom dashboards and the ability to export data or set automated delivery.

As a result—whether monitoring crops or conducting research in agriculture, forestry or ecology—growers and researchers can easily consolidate and share their data, as well as get timely information whenever and wherever they need it. Designed to withstand the harshest conditions, the tough, compact station also lets users choose between built-in solar power or battery power, making the MicroRX easy to mount, and deploy in either full sun or covered, secured locations. 
 
“Researchers and growers have benefited from the proven performance of our HOBO environmental monitoring solutions to deliver the highest levels of accuracy, reliability, and performance,” said Onset President, Jim Towey. “Now, with our HOBO MicroRX Station, users gain affordable flexibility and ease-of-use in their environmental monitoring for timely insights wherever and whenever they need them.”
