Kestrel® 2000 Pocket Wind Meter Plus
Product Code #KES2000
Tracks maximum and average wind speeds along with current readings plus displays wind speed in your choice of knots, meters per second, kilometers per second, kilometers per hour, miles per hour, feet per minute or Beaufort scale. Temperature and wind chill can be displayed in °C or °F. Capable of measuring the slightest breeze, the unit uses an ultralight impeller mounted on jewel bearings to measure wind speed and provide an accuracy of ±3%. For temperature readings, the Kestrel uses a fast-responding, hermetically sealed thermistor accurate to ±1°F (±1°C). Wind chill factor is calculated automatically from wind and temperature data using the U.S. National Weather Service’s official tables. Measuring modes and display units can be changed at any time. Results are displayed on a large, easy-to-read backlit LCD which automatically shuts off 45 minutes after last key press. The Kestrel 2000 is housed in a reinforced fiberglass ergonomic case which is waterproof and floats. A convenient neck lanyard and one CR2032 battery are included. Five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Accurate readings may be taken beyond these temperature limits by exposing the unit for the minimum time necessary to take and record measurements.
