Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter
Wind speed, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and density altitude plus logging capabilities – the indispensable tool for portable environmental monitoring.
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 Kestrel 5 Series platform offers a large, high-resolution and contrast display with ease of font readability. It also includes a built-in dual colour backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens, AA battery operation and 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.
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 5000 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 30m 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 295 grams and is just 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.
