Kestrel 5500 with LiNK and iPadIn addition to measuring the current environmental conditions, the Kestrel 5500 tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data. Your data log can be transferred to a iOS/Android device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless communication option and the Kestrel LiNK app, or to a Windows PC or Mac with either the accessory Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable (Both sold separately).The true versatility of the Kestrel 5500 becomes apparent with the addition of the Kestrel Vane Mount. This precision-engineered accessory securely mounts the Kestrel 5500 to any tripod or other ¼-20 fitted bracket. Once mounted, the Kestrel 5500 becomes a full-featured weather station. Select "Add LiNK (Bluetooth Connectivity) + Vane Mount" or select the standard 5500 and purchase the vane mount separately in our Accessories section.

  • The lowest temperature the Kestrel 5500 can display is -20 degrees Fahrenheit? It often drops down to -20 to -30 in Minnesota.

    Kestrel Meters with a thermistor will record lower than 0. Their specification range is: -20.0 to 158.0 °F. They will record lower than that but the issue becomes the functionality of the screen and battery so you would need to keep the meter in safe place, take your readings, then return it to a safe place.
