  • 14 total meteorological parameters measured, calculated and displayed
    real-time and stored in memory, including advanced meteorological
    measurements such as dew point temperature, wet bulb temperatures and
    density altitude
  • Large, hi-res, hi-contrast, graphic display is perfectly readable in the
    brightest sunlight and is backlit for nighttime use
  • Rugged (drop tested to MIL-STD-810G standards), waterproof (sealed to IP67 standards) and floats

The next generation of weather monitoring is the here with the Kestrel 5500
Weather Meter.

This Kestrel meter does it all. The Kestrel 5500 provides the same trusted
accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original Kestrel 4500. Measure
every environmental condition plus wind direction, crosswind and
headwind/tailwind. Use it golfing, sailing, flying, spraying, shooting and
more. Drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand extreme
environments without damage, your Kestrel weather meter travels 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 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.

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 and 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.
