The next generation of environmental conditions monitoring is the herewith the Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter.

The Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter isa remarkably powerful measuring and data logging tool, yet remarkably compact. TheKestrel 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 also includes a built-in dual colour backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation. Like all Kestrel meters, theKestrel 5000 is drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage so it can travel with you anywhere you dare togo. 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 optionalKestrel LiNK Dongleor waterproofUSB Data Transfer Cable.

The true versatility of the Kestrel5000 becomes apparent with the addition of theKestrel Vane Mount. This precision engineered accessory securely mounts the Kestrel 5000 to any tripod or other ��__-20 fitted bracket. Once mounted, the Kestrel 5500 becomes an independent monitoring station?��_��__ the large wind vane and precision pivot keep the Kestrel oriented into the wind for continuous measurement and logging of wind speed along with all other key weather parameters. TheKestrel 5000 meter can also be stored and carried in the Vane Mount belt pouch, nd the entire kit weighs just 10.5 ounces / 295 grams and is just 2.5 x 3 x 8.5inches / 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, wild land 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 findKestrel referenced in many a peer-reviewed journal article. If environmental conditions are important inyourprofession or favourite activity, there is no better partner than a Kestrel5000.

What��_��__��_��_sNew in the Kestrel 5000:



Kestrel LiNK for mobile

(forKestrel 5000 with LINKonly.Product code# KES-5000BLACK-L)

Android and iOS apps put crucial information at your fingertips with real-time remote data viewing on phones and tablets up to 100��_��__��_��_ away. Kestrel LiNK also provides easy data export, threshold alerts and simple firmware updates.

LiNK wireless connectivity powered by Bluetooth Smart

(forKestrel 5000 with LINKonly.Product code# KES-5000BLACK-L)

Robust, easy connectivity to both iOS and Android mobile devices as well as Windows and Mac computers. (Computers require optional Kestrel USB Dongle.)

Large, high contrast screen

Easily readable text in almost any setting, including bright sunlight, with more visible information on the screen at all times. This high-resolution display is easy on the eyes, allowing you to get more information from customisable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing eye strain or fatigue.

Dual color backlight

Toggle backlight colour between standard white and night-vision-preserving red (NV). The red NV backlight features an optical wavelength selected to help users sustain natural night vision and reduced brightness to avoid detection during night manouvers.

Secure battery door

Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.

Scratch and breakage-resistant window
