What's New in the Kestrel 5500
Kestrel LiNK for mobile
Android and iOS apps put crucial information at your fingertips with real-time remote data viewing
on phones and tablets up to 100' away. Kestrel LiNK also provides easy data export, threshold
alerts and simple firmware updates.
LiNK wireless connectivity powered by Bluetooth Smart
Robust, easy connectivity to both iOS and Android mobile devices as well as PCs.
(Computers require optional Kestrel USB Dongle.)
USB Data Transfer Cable
Low profile, lightweight, waterproof cable provides wired connectivity to PCs for fast data uploads
and firmware updates. Compatible with every model in the Kestrel 5 Series.
Sleek, rugged tripod vane mount
Small, secure, robust vane mount turns any Kestrel 5 Series meter into a portable weather station
that remains oriented into the wind. (Included in some models where noted, otherwise sold as optional accessory.)
Large, high contrast screen
Easily readable text in almost any setting, including bright sunlight, with more visible information
on the screen at all times. This high-resolution display is easy on the eyes, allowing you to get
more information from customizable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing
eye strain or fatigue.
Dual color backlight
Toggle backlight color between standard white and night-vision-preserving red (NV).
The red NV backlight features an optical wavelength selected to help users sustain natural night
vision and reduced brightness to avoid detection during night maneuvers.
Secure battery door
Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.
Scratch and breakage-resistant window
Rigid, polycarbonate lens with scratch-coating protects the display from damage.
Corrosion-resistant battery compartment
Battery is isolated from electronics, reducing damage in the event of a battery leak.
(Note – Lithium AA batteries strongly recommended to avoid battery leakage altogether.)
