Kestrel 5000 Weather Meter
The Kestrel 5000 Pocket Weather Meter is the baseline wind and
weather meter in the Kestrel 5000 series. What sets the 5000
series apart from the rest of the Kestrel family is the
capability to display wind speed, temperature, humidity,
barometric pressure and density altitude in addition to logging capabilities – the indispensable tool for portable environmental monitoring.
Kestrel 5000 Weather Meter Overview:
The next generation of environmental conditions monitoring is here with the Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter.
- Used in firefighting, agriculture, hazardous materials response, meteorology, military, law enforcement, education, scientific
research, mountaineering expeditions and more.
- Handheld, portable environmental meter with onboard data logging and graphing.
- Measures wind speed / air speed, temperature, humidity and pressure and displays over 10 total environmental parameters on large, hi-res, hi-contrast, graphic display.
- Optional LiNK connectivity powered by Bluetooth Smart® provides wireless communication to mobile devices and computers.
(Note: Kestrel LiNK Wireless Dongle sold seperately)
- Rugged (drop tested to MIL-STD-810G standards), waterproof (sealed to IP67 standards) and floats.
- Protective pouch, neck lanyard and Lithium AA battery included.
- 5-year warranty.
The Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter is a remarkably powerful measuring and data logging tool, yet remarkably compact. The Kestrel 5000 provides the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original Kestrel 4000. Use it for research, safety, expeditions, agriculture and any other profession or activity where accurate on-the-spot conditions monitoring is key.
The new Kestrel 5 Series platform adds many new features and
options. If you’re familiar with the Kestrel 4500, the first
thing you’ll notice is the larger, higher-resolution and
contrast display and improved font readability. The Kestrel 5
series includes a built-in dual color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens, AA battery operation and offers optional LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support. Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel 5000 is drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage – so it can travel with you anywhere you dare to go. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take your Kestrel meter with you.
In addition to measuring the current environmental conditions, the Kestrel 5000 tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data. Your data log can be transferred to a mobile device wirelessly, or to a PC/MAC with either the optional Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable.
The true versatility of the Kestrel 5000 becomes apparent with the addition of the Kestrel Vane Mount. This precision-engineered accessory securely mounts the Kestrel 5000 to any tripod or other ¼-20 fitted bracket. Once mounted, the Kestrel 5500 becomes an independent monitoring station, as the large wind vane and precision pivot keep the Kestrel oriented into the wind for continuous measurement and logging of wind speed and all other key weather parameters. The Kestrel LiNK app (iOS and Android) also displays the Kestrel’s real-time readings on a vivid, customizable mobile device dashboard by providing a remote display that functions up to 100’ away (line of sight). The Kestrel 5000 meter can also be stored and carried in the Vane Mount belt pouch. The entire kit weighs just 10.5 ounces / 295 grams and is just 2.5 x 3 x 8.5 inches / 6.5 x 7.5 x 22 cm in size.
Kestrels have been put to the test in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. U.S. Special Forces, combat weather teams, wildland firefighters, smoke jumpers, Mt. Everest expeditions and auto pit crews are just a few who rely on a Kestrel to provide them with the crucial environmental data they need. Watch any on-screen meteorologist during a hurricane, and you’re sure to spot a Kestrel in action. Researchers have relied on Kestrel’s accuracy and portability for nearly 20 years, and you’ll find Kestrel referenced in many a peer-reviewed journal article. If environmental conditions are important in your profession or favorite activity, there is no better partner than a Kestrel 5000.
The Kestrel 5000 accurately measures:
- Barometric Pressure
