  • Let me demonstrate how the ZW system works.This is a sample layout of facilityConsider this is your room with the PC running the HOBOnode Manager software and the Receiver is connected to it.Moving away from the receiver, place the battery operated data nodes at the desired measurement point within a 300ft line of sight distance.If there are obstacles between the node and the receiver this range may be less than 300ft; you will be able to see the signal strength in the software. Now if you want to collect data from beyond the communicating distance from the receiver then set one of the data nodes along the path to be an “AC powered dual purpose node” and place a data node at the desired measurement point.As I had explained earlier, in the dual purpose mode, the data nodes not only transmit data from their own sensors but also redirect data from other nodes until it reaches the receiver.Alternately, you can add a router node along the path and then move the data node to the remote measurement point. To collect data from another point that is further away, set another node in a dual purpose mode and place a data node at the desired point.If you wish to collect data from a node across a physical obstruction, place a router (dedicated or a dual purpose) within the communicating range of the node and the data from the node will get redirected to the receiver.This way the network spreads throughout the facility and collects the data from across rooms, partitions and floor levels and makes it available at a centralized location: your PCYou can add more nodes and measurement points over time without disrupting the existing network. A single network can scale up to a maximum of 100 nodes.In real-time situations, the space inside a facility does not remain constant. Things are moved around and this may create obstructions between two communicating nodes.In such a situation, the self-healing feature of the ZW network will make the data node to automatically look for another router node to send its data to, without any manual interventionAs you can see, once you have ensured a strong “communication backbone” of routers connected to the receiver, the network heals itself from broken communication links. Thus the network ensures that despite the obstructions the data nodes are able to send readings from their sensors to the receiver, as long as they find one or more router within the communication range.If the nodes fail to find a router within the communication range it has buffer memory to save the readings for few days.Thus a ZW network made up of routers and data nodes is very reliable and robust in face of communication obstructions and power failures.As mentioned earlier, the data nodes come in variety of configurations, based on the types of sensors internal or external.A single network can have any combination of these different types of data nodes, based on your application needs.

Weatherization Study Oak Ridge National Laboratory & Energy Center of Wisconsin• Challenge o Funded by a $5 billion federal assistance program, National Weatherization Assistance Program Evaluation o Determine if low-income homes in the Midwest, Northeast & South heated with propane & oil achieve comparable energy savings to those heated by natural gas. o How to accurately measure the differences between bulk fuel deliveries vs natural gas’s monthly bill. o Analyzing fuel deliveries, alone, can create skewed results. For example, one household may fill its oil tank to the top for the winter; another may fill it only partially and then use a wood-burning stove to supplement.• Solution o HOBO U10-003 Temp/RH loggers used at the main thermostat for space temperature over the study period which was used to improve the variable-base degree day analysis. o U10-003 also placed in spaces that used additional heating sources such as space heaters or wood stoves o Additional HOBOs where used to monitor the run-time of the heating systems. www.onsetcomp.com 20 6/4/2012
