Environmental Construction and Energy Projects Require High-Accuracy Devices
The green building industry is growing quickly, and successful projects benefit from assessment and evaluation from start to finish. From hospitals to industrial operations to single-family homes, measurements of conditions such as temperature, solar radiation, and energy consumption are essential to carrying out and testing your designs.
Today’s data loggers are small, low-cost, rugged devices that record unattended indoor and outdoor measurements at user-specified intervals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Indoor units are already in common use by performance contractors and engineers responsible for monitoring energy efficiency and usage, air quality, and heating ventilation/air conditioning/refrigeration (HVAC/R). Weather stations are used outdoors worldwide by research scientists and farmers for collecting environmental data such as rainfall, wind speed, and solar radiation.
Whether you are an experienced data logger user or are just getting started, this guide from the Applications Specialists at CAS DataLoggers will help you to understand how data loggers fit into the green building industry, and will also give advice about several areas to consider when selecting a logger best suited for your particular needs.
