Kestrel 1000 Wind Meter
About this deal
Top 10 Lists Our Top 10 lists count down the warmest, wettest, and snowiest places around, and explain what drives the weather in these locales. Difference between dry bulb temperature and wet bulb temperature. When spraying, indicates evaporation rate and droplet lifetime. Safe range for pesticide spraying is 4 to 16 °F / 2 to 9 °C.
Kestrel 1000 Wind Meter - Nielsen-Kellerman
The Kestrel 1000 series rotating vane anemometer designed for measuring wind speed. The entry-level meter provides accurate current, average and maximum 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.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. Advanced video enhancement and signal processing features – Optimizing image quality and output in real-time. View full Details
Kestrel KESTREL 1000 Rotary Vane Anemometer, 40m/s Max
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 the device, 45 minutes after the last key press helps to preserve battery life.
All Kestrel models can be fitted to a portable rotating wind vane mount and tripod, to create a very portable and accurate weather station. While most weather meters are all built the same, some may offer different functionality. One common feature added to these devices is temperature. Some, like those used in firefighting, might also include a humidity sensor. Wrapping Up

Air pressure that would be present in identical conditions at MSL. Station pressure compensated for local elevation provided by reference altitude. Requires accurate reference altitude to produce maximum absolute accuracy Wind and weather meters are meant to be used outdoors, so device construction is important. If you are using the device in harsher environments, ensure it is built well, which most higher-end devices are. For those using their devices casually, durability is far less of a concern. Many of them are waterproof. Functionality

However, a candidate for the Best Handheld Weather Station of 2022 can’t only be a great value: it must have accurate measurements, be user-friendly, and have excellent build quality. Our review staff has years of experience using handheld weather stations and instruments: some of us are degreed meteorologists and scientists. Our writers independently research each device: we do not recommend a device simply because a manufacturer sends it to us. Our Handheld Weather Station Test Results Temperature indicated by a sling psychrometer. Due to nature of the psychrometric ratio for a water-air system, this approximates the thermodynamic wet-bulb temperature. The thermodynamic wet-bulb temperature is the temperature a parcel of air would have if cooled adiabatically to saturation temperature via water evaporating into it.
