The Kestrel 5000 Weather Meter replaces the well-known and accurate Kestrel 4000. Its design is very similar to the Kestrel 4000, but it has been improved on several important features such as memory, larger display, dual color backlight and intuitive navigation in the menus.
A robust weather meter that makes it easy to measure altitude, barometric pressure, relative humidity, temperature and wind speed. From these measurements, the following functions can be derived: wind chill, heat stress index, dew point and density altitude. Data can be displayed in three different formats: current, minimum/maximum/average and charted. The display has two types of backlight and various interface languages are available. The instrument itself can store more than 10,000 data points and, using the USB Data Transfer Cable, data can be saved and processed (requires supplementary equipment). Data is stored with time and date.
The impeller is 25 mm in diameter and protected by a cover when not in use. Available as a spare part.
