Product Details

Kestrel 1000 Hand Held Wind Meter

From Kestrel, the 1000 series rotating vane anemometer designed for measuring wind speed. The entry-level meter provides accurate wind speed readings without compromising on functionality and performance. With a fully sealed IP67 electronics enclosure the robust instrument even floats if accidentally dropped in water. Constructed from impact resistant plastic and corrosion proof materials the Kestrel 1000 anemometer is ideal for any outdoor enthusiast.

Compact in design the Kestrel 1000 utilises high precision bearings and a lightweight rotating impeller to deliver exact airflow measurements even at lower wind speeds. Microprocessor technology automatically counts the number of revolutions per second to calculate the wind speed. Final measurements are plainly shown in 9mm high digits on the liquid crystal display.

The operation is straightforward, with 3 easy to use buttons, data can be viewed in average, current or maximum displays. The buttons also provide a data hold function. Auto switch off of the device, 45 minutes after the last key press helps to preserve battery life.

Rotating vane anemometers are used to measure environmental conditions quickly and accurately. The information and data they provide are vital in a wide range of applications and environments. Essential for reporting, forecasting, planning and more importantly health and safety. Some of the more common applications are

• HVAC - Vital for checking airflow
• Building and construction - Essential for health and safety around cranes, scaffolding and roofing. Gusting wind is potentially hazardous
• Sport and recreation – Wind direction and wind speed is crucial for sailing and windsurfing
• Aviation testing – Airflow and wind speed is fundamental for aerodynamic design
• Calibration laboratories - Testing and calibrating old and new sensors
• Education - Helps with the understanding of airflow experiments and environmental studies
