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 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 color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation. 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.
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 ,-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. The Kestrel LiNK app (iOS and Android) also displays the Kestrel's real-time readings on a vivid, customizable mobile device dashboard - 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, and 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.
USB Data Transfer Cable Low profile, lightweight, waterproof cable provides wired connectivity to Windows and Mac computers for fast data uploads and firmware updates. Compatible with every model in the Kestrel 5 Series
Sleek, rugged tripod vane mount Small, secure, robust vane mount turns any Kestrel 5 Series meter into a portable weather station that remains oriented into the wind. (Included in some models where noted, otherwise sold as optional accessory.)
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 customizable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing eye strain or fatigue.
Dual Color Backlight Toggle backlight color 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 maneuvers.
Secure Battery Door Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.
Scratch & Breakage-Resistant Window Rigid, polycarbonate lens with scratch-coating protects the display from damage.
Corrosion-Resistant Battery Compartment Battery is isolated from electronics, reducing damage in the event of a battery leak. (Note - Lithium AA batteries strongly recommended to avoid battery leakage altogether.)
Intuitive User-Interface Icon-based navigation, intuitive keypad, and multiple languages make the Kestrel a breeze to use.
