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 original 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).
