Product code: KDROPD2
The Kestrel DROP D2 data logger is a blind data logger for measuring temperature, humidity, heat index and dew point. Applications are varied and include goods transportation, food storage, agriculture, firefighting, HAZMAT, building management, medical, pharmaceutical and many more.
The Kestrel DROP D2 is compact, durable and fully waterproof to IP67 standards and drop tested to MIL-STD-810G standard. You can place a Kestrel DROP logger almost anywhere discreetly (hidden if required) with confidence it will start gathering data accurately and consistently.
All Kestrel DROP use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to communicate; no more USB cables or having to connect the logger to a USB cradle or PC port to get data. Simply use your smart device to connect wirelessly and the Kestrel Connect App (FREE download for iPhone, iPad & Android) will download the data for charting and manipulation. From here data can be shared easily via email, text or social media.

|Ambient Temperature||°F||0.1||0.9 °F||Hermetically sealed,
precision thermistor mounted externally and thermally isolated
(US Patent 5,939,645) for rapid response. Airflow of 2.2 mph|1
m/s or greater provides fastest response and reduction of
insulation effect. Calibration drift negligible.
Thermistor may also be used to measure temperature of water or snow by submerging thermistor portion into material -- ensure humidity sensor membrane is free of liquid water prior to taking humidity-based measurements after submersion.

|Relative Humidity||%RH||0.1||2 %RH||10 to 90%
|Polymer capacitive humidity sensor mounted in thin-walled chamber for rapid, accurate response (US Patent 6,257,074). To achieve stated accuracy, unit must be permitted to equilibrate to external temperature when exposed to large, rapid temperature changes and be kept out of direct sunlight.|
|Heat Index||°F||0.1||TBD °F||Refer to stated ranges for temp. and relative humidity.||Calculated measurement.
Perceived temperature resulting from the combined effect of temperature and relative humidity. Calculated based on NWS Heat Index (HI) tables. (Measurement range limited by extent of published tables)
|Dew Point||°F||0.1||TBD °F||15 to 95 % RH
Refer to stated ranges for temperature sensor
Temperature that a volume of air must be cooled to at constant pressure for the water vapour present to condense into dew and form on a solid surface. Can also be considered to be the water-to-air saturation temperature.
|Bluetooth Data Upload||Utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module.
iOS Device needed to receive uploaded data.
iOS Device must be within range to receive data.

The battery life will vary based on usage. For baseline conditions and settings1, the battery will last approximately 6 months.
Battery life will be reduced by:
a) colder conditions
b) more frequent logging rates
c) more frequent update rates
Downloads of large data logs (or firmware updates) are best completed with a fresh battery and in temperatures above 10°C / 50°F.
(1Temperature = 75°F, Logging Rate = 10 minutes, Update Rate = 30 seconds)
|Environmental||Sealing: Waterproof (IP67 and NEMA-6).
Shock Resistance: MIL-STD-810Fg, Transit Shock, Method 516.5 Procedure IV
|Origin||Designed and manufactured in the USA from US and imported components. Complies with Regional Value Content and Tariff Code Transformation requirements for NAFTA Preference Criterion B.|
|Size & Weight||2.4 x 1.8 x 0.9 in / 6 x 4.5 x 2.3 cm, 1.2 oz / 34 g|
|Colour Options||Red | Blue | Tan|
The manufacturer reserves the right to amend the specification and therefore the information in this document may be subject to change.
Accuracy calculated as uncertainty of the measurement derived from statistical analysis considering the combined effects from primary sensor specifications, circuit conversions, and all other sources of error using a coverage factor of k=2, or two standard deviations (2Ε).
