You know you’re working hard - make sure you’re staying safe.

    • Real-time environmental monitoring keeps you from working past your limits. 
    • From the accurate relative humidity readings, the Kestrel 3000 also calculates dewpoint and heat stress index —important information to know when working or playing outdoors in hot and humid conditions. 
    • Used by NFL trainers to determine how frequently the athletes need to hydrate, and when the conditions are unhealthy for strenuous exercise. 
    • Highly recommended equipment for wildland firefighters—users whose lives literally depend on the accurate weather data their Kestrel 3000 provides.
    • Calculates wind chill. A useful measurement for monitoring athletic teams or workers in cold environments.

      1 ft/min
      0.1 km/h
      0.1 mph
      0.1 knots

      Specification Range
      0.6 to 40.0 m/s
      118 to 7,874 ft/min
      2.2 to 144.0 km/h
      1.3 to 89.5 mph

      0 to 12 B
      1 inch|25 mm diameter impeller with precision axle and low-friction Zytel® bearings. Startup speed stated as lower limit, readings may be taken down to0.4 m/s |79 ft min|1.5 km/h |.9 mph |.8 kt after impeller startup. Off-axis accuracy-1% @ 5º off axis; -2% @ 10º; -3% @ 15º. Calibration drift < 1% after 100 hours use at 16 MPH |7 m/s. Replacement impeller (NK PN-0801) field installs without tools (US Patent 5,783,753). Wind speed calibration and testing should be done with triangle on impeller located at the top front face of the Kestrel. Measuring wind speeds above 60 m/s / 134.2 mph can damage the impeller.

      Ambient Temperature

      Accuracy (+/-)

      0.9 °F, 0.5 °C


      0.1 °F, 0.1 °C

      Specification Range

      -20.0 to 158.0 °F
      -29.0 to 70.0 °C


      Airflow of 2.2 mph|1 m/s or greater provides fastest response and reduction of insulation effect. For greatest accuracy, avoid direct sunlight on the temperature sensor and prolonged sunlight exposure to the unit in low airflow conditions. Calibration drift is negligible for the life of the product. For further details, see Display & Battery Operational Temperature Limits.
      Specification Range
      750-1100 hPa|mbar
      22.15-32.48 inHg
      10.88-15.95 PSI

      Relative Humidity

      Accuracy (+/-)

      Resolution 0.1 %RH
      Specification Range 5 to 95% 25°C non-condensing
      Notes 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. Calibration drift is typically less than ±0.25% per year.
