The HOBO RX3000 is Onset’s most flexible remote data logging station. It provides instant access to site-specific environmental data anywhere and anytime via the web service. The station combines the versatility and sensor quality of more expensive systems, an onboard LCD display and the convenience of plug-and-play operation. The RX3000 is a configurable system, who must be combined with external sensors. The RX3000 station is the basic component of the cost-effective and scalable HOBOnet field monitoring system for applications like crop management, environmental research and greenhouse operations.
It proveds flexible support for a broad range of sensors and it has a LCD display for easy field deployment. You can easily acces your measured data via the cloud-based HOBOlink web service (24/7 web access). You can verify the RX3000 system status remotely and do the set-up/managing the alarm notifications over the web. There is the possibility to schedule automated delivery of data and you can get alarm notifications via text or via email.
It has a rugged double-weatherproof enclosure. Either cellular, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet options are available and it is also configurable from your mobile device.
Optional you can choose for an analog Input, relay and water level sensor modules (remote water level and water flow monitoring with Onset’s water level module, RXMOD-W1). Access to NEWA plant disease risk and insect pest models.
This remote monitoring station operates in indoor, outdoor and water environments and it supports the following measurements:
4-20mA, AC Current, AC Voltage, Air Velocity, Amp Hour (Ah), Amps (A), Barometric Pressure, Carbon Dioxide, Compressed Air Flow, DC Current, DC Voltage, Dew Point, Differential Pressure, Evapotranspiration, Event, Gauge Pressure, Kilowatt Hours (kWh), Kilowatts (kW), Leaf Wetness, Light Intensity, PAR, Power Factor (PF), Pulse Input, Rainfall, Relative Humidity, Remote Water Level Monitoring, Soil Moisture, Soil Temperature, Solar Radiation, Temperature, Volt-Amp Reactive, Volt-Amp Reactive hour, Volt-Amps (VA), Volts (V), Water Flow, Water Level, Watt Hours (Wh), Watts (W) and Wind.
Operating range: -40° to 60°C
Smart sensor connectors: 10
Smart sensor network cable length: 100 meters at maximum
Smart sensor data channels: maximum of 15 (some smart sensors use more than one data channel)
Module slots: 2
Logging rate: 1 second (RX3001 and RX3002) or 1 minute (RX3003 and RX3004) to 18 hours
Time accuracy: ±8 seconds per month in 0° to 40°C range: ±30 seconds per month in -40° to 60°C range
Battery type/power source: 4 Volt, 10 AHr, rechargeable sealed lead-acid: external power required using one of these options: AC power adapter (AC-U30), solar panel (SOLAR-xW), or external power source 5 V DC to 17 V DC with external DC power cable (CABLE-RX-PWR)
