HOBO data loggers require HOBOware software (USB interface cable included w/CD purchase) and a communications device. See compatible items below.
The HOBO U12 Stainless Temperature Data Logger is ideal for food, pharmaceutical, autoclave, and other applications where high-accuracy temperature data is critical. With its broad temperature range (-40 to 125C) and food-grade stainless steel housing, the U12 Stainless Temperature Data Logger withstands process conditions from pasteurization to flash freezing and washdown. The U12 Stainless is also ideal for high-temperature or deep underwater applications.
- Food-grade 316 Series Stainless Steel
- High-accuracy, extended temperature range
- Suitable for high pressure applications to 2200psi
- Fast readout via direct USB interface
- Compatible with HOBOware and HOBOware Pro for logger setup, graphing and analysis
