November 23, 2012. Onset, a supplier of dataloggers and weather stations, has announced the HOBO Green Roof Monitoring System, a research-grade system for measuring the performance of green roofs.
Providing reliable performance in harsh rooftop conditions, the 15-channel system enables users to quickly and easily monitor green roof conditions, measure storm-water runoff, improve irrigation scheduling, and maintain healthy rooftop vegetation.
The system offers 24/7 web-based access to data while providing trend logging, monitoring, and alarm notifications. It supports all the common green roof measurements: temperature, relative humidity, wind, soil moisture, light intensity, and rainfall. Plug-and-play sensors enable fast easy deployment.
