Kestrel 3000

Description

Anemometer Kestrel 3000 is a pocket size electronic device used for measurement of wind speed, temperature, wind chill, dew point temperature, relative humidity, and heat stress index.

Equipped with an impeller for wind speed measurement and termistor sensor for air measurement temperature. The anemometer’s impeller of very light structure, has precise, sapphire bearings, what assures accurate wind measurement also with small air speed. In case of damage the impeller can be easily replaced by a user.  

Combining of an anemometer and a thermometer allows calculation through a built in device microprocessor an additional parameter – wind chill. This parameter is useful i.e. in case, when staff is send to work in cool and windy days in the open field. The device, except from the current wind speed, allows on a  maximum wind speed reading as well as an average in various units. The anemometer Kestrel 3000 has an easy to read LCD display where digits are 9 mm high. The result’s updating on the display is takes place every second (for humidity every minute).

The device is powered from a lithium battery (tablet ), which assures continuous work of the device through 400 hours. The device switches off automatically its power supply, if no key button is used for more than 30 minutes.

The anemometer’s casing is made out of plastic, and its electronic elements are fully protected from moisture. The device floats, if it is accidentally dropped into water.

The device is equipped with a hard case and a wrist or a neck lanyard (protecting the device from being dropped  during exploitation).

Applications

The anemometer Kestrel 3000 was designed in such way, so it assures possibly easy and comfortable usage tylko with help of two key buttons: "ON" – a key button switching the power supply on and off and "MODE" – a key button choosing a type of displayed measurement result: air speeds (current, maximum or average) or temperature (current or wind chill). By pressing the key button "ON" and pressing "MODE" it is possible to obtain unit change, in which the results are displayed.

Applications

The anemometer is possible to be used in such fields as:
  • agriculture - conditions for sprayings, conditions of storing the agricultural produce,
  • motorization – control of cooling and air-conditioning systems,
  • aviation – meteorological conditions for conducting the flights of gliders, hang-gliders, balloons,
  • industry- controlling work conditions, air flow control in technological processes,
  • coast guard - control of safety conditions,
  • sport - control of conditions for performing different sports disciplines,
  • air-conditioning and heat engineering- work control of ventilation and air-conditioning channels,
  • fire department – assessing wind influence on fire’s spreading,
  • police - control of the wind on roads (i.e. perpendicular to a way of traffic movement),
  • science and research- meteorology, aerodynamics, environment testing.

Kestrel serii 5000 nie tylko mierzy aktualne dane atmosferyczne, ale również umożliwia zapis ponad 10000 pakietów danych z sygnaturą czasu. Dane można bezprzewodowo przesyłać do urządzeń przenośnych lub PC/MAC za pomocą opcjonalnego Dongla Kestrel LiNK, albo wodoodpornego kabla do transferu danych przez port USB (oba interfejsy są dostępne oddzielnie).
Kestrel 5500 Kestrel 5500
Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter jest urządzeniem do pomiaru warunków atmosferycznych nowej generacji. Kestrel umie naprawdę wiele. Kestrel 5500 jest równie precyzyjny, niezawodny i wszechstronny, jak wcześniejszy model Kestrel 4500. Mierzy wszystkie wskaźniki atmosferyczne, kierunek wiatru, wiatr boczny, przeciwny, wiatr od tyłu. Przydaje się przy grze w golfa, żeglarstwie, lataniu, opryskach i innych czynnościach. Jest odporny na uderzenia, kurz i wodę i odporny na uszkodzenia w każdych warunkach i w każdym terenie, w który odważysz się wyruszyć. Duży wybór futerałów pozwala dopasować ochronędo konkretnego zastosowania.
