Hand Held Weather Stations

Jun 26 2011 Read 2286 Times

The Kestrel pocket weather meters from Richard Paul Russell (UK) offers one of the most accurate hand-held weather instruments on the market. The range starts with the Kestrel 1000, the basic anemometer and goes through to a fully portable weather station which monitors 21 different environmental parameters, including wind direction and density altitude.

The Kestrel 4000 series is able to log real time environmental data, with a storage capacity of up to 2000 data points. All data can be sampled between two second and twelve hour intervals. Data may also be manually captured, allowing users to freeze readings. All sorted data is time and date stamped.

These units have the option of real time wireless data transfer, over a distance of up to 10 meters using Bluetooth® technology or alternatively data can be uploaded to a PC via a Kestrel interface. The ability to easily transfer data allows the user to run in-depth analysis and offers long-term storage.

All Kestrel units come with a patented impeller capable of responding to a breeze as low as 0.4 m/s and with an accuracy of +/-3%. In case of damage the impeller can be easily replaced by the user. All models (with the exception of the Kestrel 1000 which measures solely wind speed) have a patented external thermometer. Having it externally mounted, instead of embedded inside the case eliminates temperature error caused by heat from the user’s hand. Additionally, all Kestrel Meters are fully waterproof and float, so they can be used to read water and snow temperatures by simply submerging the unit.

The patented humidity sensor configuration rapidly adjusts to abrupt and substantial changes in temperature and humidity. Relative humidity can be measured to +/- 3% accuracy over a broad range (5 to 95%RH).

Each Kestrel comes with a Certificate of Conformity to certify its accuracy to the performance specifications, providing assurance of precise and reliable readings. They are rugged and durable units; backed up by a five year warranty
