Onset, a global supplier of data loggers and weather stations, has introduced the HOBO Green Roof Monitoring System, a research-grade system for measuring the performance of green roofs.

The web-based, 15-channel system (SYS-U30-GRMS-A) is designed to enable users to quickly and easily monitor green roof conditions, measure stormwater runoff, improve irrigation scheduling, measure heat island effects, and maintain healthy rooftop vegetation.

The system is designed to monitor green roof conditions, measure stormwater runoff, improve irrigation scheduling, measure heat island data, and maintain rooftop plantings.

The system also provides the documentation of green roof performance required by LEED, the company says.

Features and Options

According to the manufacturer, the system features:

  • 24/7 web-based access to data
  • All the common green roof measurements: temperature, relative humidity, wind, soil moisture, light intensity, and rainfall
  • Plug-and-play sensors that enable fast, easy deployment
  • Customizable data display for kiosks
  • Trend logging, monitoring, and alarm notifications

The system includes a HOBO U30 GSM-cellular data logger with one-year service plan; Smart Sensors for measuring rainfall, soil moisture, soil temperature, solar radiation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction; mounting brackets and a 6 watt solar panel.

Optional mounting masts, tripods, graphing and analysis software, and additional sensors are also available.

Based in Cape Cod, MA, Onset Computer Corp. has sold more than 2.5 million HOBO data loggers for a broad range of applications since the company was founded in 1981. It products are used in building energy performance monitoring, water resources management, and ecological and agricultural research.
