The next generation of environmental conditions monitoring is the here with the Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter.

Wind speed, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and density altitude plus logging capabilities – the indispensable tool for portable environmental monitoring.

The Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter is a remarkably powerful measuring and data logging tool, yet remarkably compact. The Kestrel 5000 provides the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the retired Kestrel 4000. Use it for research, safety, expeditions, agriculture and any other profession or activity where accurate on-the-spot conditions monitoring is key.

The Kestrel 5000 also tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data.
There are two versions of the 5000. The 5000 and the 5000 with LiNK. Both units can transfer data to a Windows or Mac computer with the optional waterproof Kestrel Data Transfer Cable and the appropriate Kestrel LiNK app (See Below).

The 5000 with LiNK Bluetooth Connectivity, gives you the option to transfer data wirelessly to an iOS (iPhone, iPad) device or Android smartphone or tablet when within range using the appropriate app (See Below). Also with the 5000 with LiNK Meter, you can transfer data wirelessly to a Windows or Mac computer using the optional Kestrel Bluetooth USB Dongle.

Improved font readability with it’s larger, higher-resolution / contrast display & built-in dual color backlight. The 5000 is drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments.

From U.S. Special Forces, combat weather teams, wildland firefighters, smoke jumpers, Mt. Everest expeditions and auto pit crews the 5000 gives them the crucial environmental data they need. Watch any on-screen meteorologist during a hurricane, and you’re sure to spot a Kestrel in action. Researchers have relied on Kestrel’s accuracy and portability for nearly 20 years, and you’ll find Kestrel referenced in many a peer-reviewed journal article. If environmental conditions are important in your profession or favorite activity, there is no better partner.

Ask a Question
  • Why is my Kestrel 5000 station pressure reading so different from the actual absolute pressure? My current altitude is 4,300 ft. and absolute pressure for that altitude is: 24.8122 in Hg. When I use my Kestrel 5000, with station pressure my reading is 25.7343 in hg

    You will need to set up your reference altitude or your reference pressure. Go to our reference page and click on the Kestrel 5000 Environmental Meter Quick Start Guide to download it. Scroll down to page 12 of the manual. There it will show you how to accomplish this. If you are only interested in station pressure, just adjust your reference altitude to 0. That will be the actual pressure, not barometric pressure which is pressure adjusted from sea level.

  • What happened to the 4000 series meters? I don\'t see them on your website. I\'m looking for the 08240 Orange.

    Actually the 4xxx series meters have been discontinued and are no longer being manufactured. The 4xxx series meters have been replaced with the 5xxx series meters. The Kestrel 5000 would be the replacement for the 4000.
