The Kestrel 1000 is a small electronic rotating vane type anemometer (wind meter), easily carried in a pocket. It uses high precision Zytel® bearings and a light weight impeller to provide accurate air flow measurements even at low speeds. The impeller assembly can be replaced by the user if damaged.

Low power microprocessor technology is used to provide speed, maximum speed, average speed and units selection; functions normally only found on more expensive instruments. The liquid crystal display has large 9mm high digits for a clear readout.

Power is from an easily replaceable standard lithium coin cell battery, which will typically give up to 300 hours of operation. The instrument automatically switches off if no keys are pressed for 45 minutes.

The Kestrel 1000 wind meter is made from high impact injection moulded plastic and corrosion resistant materials with the electronics fully sealed. It will float if accidentally dropped into water. There is a hard cover for protection when not in use and a lanyard is provided for added security.

Display & Backlight Reflective 3 1/2 digit LCD. Digit height 0.36 in / 9 mm. Aviation green electroluminescent backlight (except in Kestrel 1000). Manual activation with auto-off.
Response Time & Display Update All measurements except those based on relative humidity respond accurately within 1 second. Relative humidity and all measurements which include RH in their calculation may require as long as 1 minute to fully equilibrate to a large change in the measurement environment. Display updates every 1 second.
Operational & Storage Temperature Range The operational temperature range of the liquid crystal display and batteries is 14° F to 131° F / -10 °C to 55 °C. Measurements beyond the operational range can be taken by briefly exposing unit to extreme conditions such that the display and batteries remain within the operational range. Storage range -22 °F to 140 °F / -30 °C to 60 °C.
Auto Shutdown After 45 minutes of no key presses.
Certifications CE certified, RoHS and WEEE compliant. Individually tested to NIST-traceable standards (written certificate of tests available at additional charge).
Battery CR2032, one, included. Average life, 300 hours. Battery life reduced by backlight use in 2000 to 3500 models.
Environmental Waterproof (IP67 and NEMA-6). MIL-STD-810F, Transit Shock, Method 516.5 Procedure IV; unit only; impact may damage replaceable impeller.
Size & Weight 4.8 x 1.9 x 1.1 in / 12.2 x 4.8 x 2.8 cm, 3.6 oz / 102 g (including slip-on cover).
