Kestrel 5000 Link Weather Meter


 Model #0850LBLK


The advantage the Kestrel 5000 LiNK provides to hunters, long-range target shooters and agricultural specialists is immeasurable. With Kestrel LiNK technology, you will not only know the current weather conditions but be able to track changes in the environment and therefore make predictions as to what may happen next. 


As with all 5000 series Kestrel meters, they have both a white backlight, which is great for even daytime use and a night-vision preserving backlight. The red night vision (NV) backlight incorporates optical filter to reduce overall brightness and minimise blue and green spectrum light to preserve night vision.  (Note: This backlight appears soft greyish pink, not "red", and is still in the visible spectrum, so is not compatible with night-vision equipment.)  Basically, with the red backlight, your eyes don't need to adjust when looking from your meter to the horizon in night time use.


The Kestrel 5000 Link has Bluetooth Technology, which allows you to communicate with your Kestrel at a range of up to 100 feet with your Android or iPhone, and maximise the battery life of your weather meter.  Each Bluetooth Meter includes custom communication software designed to quickly and easily configure your data transmission frequency, download logged data, graph data and transfer data to other applications. 


It has the capacity to store up to 10,000 data points of weather data, enabling you to track changes in the environment over time, view these changes as graphs on your Kestrel 5000's display, and even upload the data to your PC or Mac.
