The Kestrel 1000 is a small electronic rotating vane type anemometer (wind meter), easily carried in a pocket. It uses high precision Zytel® bearings and a light weight impeller to provide accurate air flow measurements even at low speeds. The impeller assembly can be replaced by the user if damaged.
Low power microprocessor technology is used to provide speed, maximum speed, average speed and units selection; functions normally only found on more expensive instruments. The liquid crystal display has large 9mm high digits for a clear readout.
Power is from an easily replaceable standard lithium coin cell battery, which will typically give up to 300 hours of operation. The instrument automatically switches off if no keys are pressed for 45 minutes.
The Kestrel 1000 wind meter is made from high impact injection moulded plastic and corrosion resistant materials with the electronics fully sealed. It will float if accidentally dropped into water. There is a hard cover for protection when not in use and a lanyard is provided for added security.
