  • 118 to 7,874 ft/min
  • 2.2 to 144.0 km/h
  • 1.3 to 89.5 mph
  • 1.2 to 77.8 knots
  • 0 to 12 B*
  • 2-131.2 F/S*
Operational Range:
  • 0.6 to 60.0 m/s
  • 118 to 11,811 ft/min
  • 2.2 to 216.0 km/h
  • 1.3 to 134.2 mph
  • 1.2 to 116.6 knots
  • 0 to 12 B*
  • 2-196.9 F/S*
Resolution:
  • 0.1 m/s
  • 1 ft/min
  • 0.1 km/h
  • 0.1 mph
  • 0.1 knots
  • 1 B
Accuracy (+/-): Larger of 3% of reading, least significant digit or 20 ft/min
Notes: 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 to 0.4 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 (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. *F/S only in Ballistics units. Beaufort not available in Ballistics units.

Ambient Temperature

Units of Measure: Fahrenheit, Celsius
Specification Range:
  • -20.0 to 158.0 °F
  • -29.0 to 70.0 °C
Operational Range:
  • 14.0.0 to 131.0 °F
  • -10.0 to 55.0 °C
Resolution:

Notes: Hermetically sealed, precision thermistor mounted externally and thermally isolated (US Patent 5,939,645) for rapid response. Airflow of 2.2 mph|1 m/s or greater provides fastest response and reduction of insolation effect. Calibration drift negligible. Thermistor may also be used to measure temperature of water or snow by submerging thermistor portion into material -- remove impeller prior to taking submerged measurements and ensure humidity sensor membrane is free of liquid water prior to taking humidity-based measurements after submersion.
