Details

The Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter is the world's most complete weather meter AND the world's most portable weather station. Lightweight, handheld, multi-function weather meter and data logger with large sunlight-readable graphing display and tripod vane mount option. Improved 2015 design!
 The Kestrel 5500 has these distinct monitoring functions over the 5000s:
  • Digital Compass
  • Wind Direction
  • Crosswind
  • Headwind / Tailwind

These added features make the 5500 the Kestrel Meter of choice for military professionals, HAZMAT teams, and flight crews. Like all of the new 5000 series, it can store up to roughly 10,000 data points. All 5000 series meters will have both a bright green backlight, which is great for even high sunlight conditions, and a night-vision preserving backlight. The red night vision (NV) backlight incorporates optical filter to reduce overall brightness and minimize blue and green spectrum light to preserve night vision.  (Note: This 'night vision' is not compatible with night-vision equipment.)  Basically, with the red backlight, your eyes don't need to adjust when looking from your meter to the horizon in night time use.
