11/11/15 - There's a new Weather Meter in town and it's tougher, smarter & faster than ever! The new Kestrel 5 Series platform adds many new features and options. If you’re familiar with the Kestrel 4500, the first thing you’ll notice is the larger, higher-resolution and contrast display and improved font readability. The Kestrel 5 series also includes a built-in dual color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation and offers optional LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support. Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel 5000 is drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage – so it can travel with you anywhere you dare to go. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take your Kestrel meter with you. We expect to start shipping the Kestrel 5000's the week of 11/09/15, Kestrel 5500's the week of 11/09/15, Kestrel Elite with Applied Ballistics and the Kestrel Sportsman with Applied Ballistics the week of 11/15/15. The Technical Meters in late November 2015. The Heat Stress Meters in December 2015. The 4000 series meters will still be available to purchase through some time in December. When we are sure the factory has closed a SKU down, we will offer only exact quantities of that product for purchase.
