BHW-Lite HOBOware Lite software for Windows/MAC

HOBOware Lite is entry-level software for HOBO USB loggers, offering easy logger launch, readout, and data plotting. It includes both Windows and Mac versions of the installer and a USB interface cable. HOBOware Lite does not support any of Onset's data assistants or data shuttles.

For full details of differences between Lite and Pro versions, please refer to the datasheet under the Technical tab.

NOTE: On install, the software runs for 30 days unless Licence key is entered. This key is detailed on the software packaging. 

Setup and Status Checks

Select launch parameters, including:
  • Which channels to record
  • Logging interval (customizable from 1 second to over 18 hours)
  • Immediate start, delayed start, start at interval, or triggered (push-button or coupler) start
  • Set up linear scaling to user-defined units for 0–2.5V or 4–20mA inputs (U-series loggers only)
  • Battery level indication
  • Synchronizes logger's clock to computer's clock
Check Logger Status:
  • Verify logger set-up before launch
  • Verify logger operation while logging
  • Display real-time sensor readings
  • Display memory used and battery voltage
Graphing and Analysis
Graphing
  • View multiple parameters from one or more loggers on one graph
  • Combine data from multiple deployments on one graph
  • Overlay data from different time periods to compare month-to-month, or before and after
  • Copy and paste data from one plot onto another
  • Save and recall graphs — saves all modifications including added data series and derived data such as barometrically compensated water levels
  • Zoom and axis-control tools to focus on data of interest
  • Use cursor to display specific plot value
  • Display series data and details such as launch parameters and series statistics
  • Add limit lines to the graph
  • Control axes, series, legend, and title properties
  • Optional display of recorded events such as button push/release, host computer connection, and/or low battery in graphs or file exports
Analysis Functions
Analysis functions can be used to extract key information from logged data. These functions actually create new data series, which can be graphed or exported. These functions filter data over user-specified intervals that can be in seconds, minutes, hours or days. 
Analysis functions for interval-based logger data:
  • Min, max, and average values per interval
  • Total rainfall or counts per interval
Analysis functions for On/Off and State logger data:
  • Run-time and off-time (closed time and open time) in seconds
  • Percent on and percent off(percent closed and percent open)
  • Number of ons and offs (number of opens and closes)
Analysis functions for Event logger data:
  • Number of events
  • Cumulative event totals
Other Features
Export Data to Other Programs:
  • One-click export to Microsoft Excel® or other ASCII-compatible programs
  • Support for international date and time formats
  • Copy and paste graph images into other programs
Other Features:
  • Offload logged data or check status while logging
  • Print graphs, details or points
  • Print preview
