Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter

The Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter (tripod NOT included) is Kestrel’s environmental meter. This is a mini weather station in itself.   The Kestrel 5500 upgraded from the Kestrel 4500 in November of 2015.  Functionally, you’re getting more environmental features with some big improvements to the overall meter.

New Features

Bluetooth LINK works with your computer via Dongle

Bluetooth LINK to Smartphones

Battery door is in the back, sealed away from the motherboard, should your battery leak as was common with all the 4000 series

Improved high resolution screen for any lighting (even sunlight) and easy on your eyes.

Intuitive user interface screen navigation

Scratch and breakage resistant window

All meters include both options of Red and White back lights.

Fits same cases.

Roughly 12,000 data points.

Digital Compass

Wind Direction

Crosswind

Headwind / Tailwind

If you select the Bluetooth Kestrel LINK model, your meter includes custom communication software designed to quickly and easily configure your data transmission frequency, download logged data, graph data and transfer data to other applications. It is no longer necessary to purchase an interface separately, the new Kestrel Meters with Bluetooth include the software necessary to communicate wirelessly at a range of up to 100 feet with a clear line of site.

Note, you will need a Dongle.  A workaround if you don’t have this with you would be to upload your data to your mobile smartphone and email it to yourself and open it on your Mac or PC.  On the 4000 series you did not need the Dongle.

All 5000 series meters will have both a bright green back light, which is great for even high sunlight conditions, and a night vision preserving back light. The red night vision (NV) back light incorporates optical filter to reduce overall brightness and minimize blue and green spectrum light to preserve night vision.  Basically, with the red back light, your eyes don’t need to adjust when looking from your meter to the horizon in night time use.
