This Keyspan server allows for connection of up to 4 HOBO U-series loggers at each server location. Additional SERVER-US-4 server and logger nodes can be connected (up to a total of 32 HOBO loggers). Note that each logger requires a USB cable (CABLE-USBMB).

NOTE: This device is not compatible with 64bit machines
Now many HOBO Data Loggers can be tied into an existing Ethernet network, providing you convenient access to data being recorded throughout your facility. Up to 32 HOBO loggers can be accessed from any computer running HOBOware® software. Another level of functionality is provided by the Real-Time Alarm plug-in tool for HOBOware, which monitors data from HOBO loggers connected to the network and provides alarm notification via email, pager, or cell phone text message when conditions exceed user-defined limits. Building a networked logging system on an existing Ethernet network provides the convenience of centralized data access and allows you to add monitoring points at a fraction of the cost of building automation systems.
Please note: Ethernet connection may not be weatherproof.
