LI-COR Environmental, a greenhouse gas measurements company and a portfolio company of Battery Ventures, has acquired Onset, the owner of the HOBO brand, a company focused on environmental monitoring and water resource management.

Onset, a Massachusetts-based company founded in 1981, produces HOBO and InTemp data loggers, used to support a range of monitoring applications, including agricultural and coastal research, green building performance, renewable energy systems and temperature-controlled environments. With this acquisition, LI-COR expands its greenhouse gas portfolio to include sensor networks, data acquisition, and cloud-based data monitoring.

“The addition of Onset to LI-COR Environmental will help us meet this growing need, not only for measuring greenhouse gases but also for more comprehensive environmental monitoring,” says Tom Reslewic, CEO at LI-COR.
