Kestrel 5200 Professional Environmental Meter
The next generation of professional environmental monitoring is here
The Kestrel 5200 provides trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability with its complete suite of environmental measurements plus special features designed to aid HVAC technicians, construction and agriculture professionals. The Kestrel 5200 outperforms the competition as the most compact and complete environmental meter and data logger for all professional uses.
The Kestrel 5200 offers advanced calculators and readings that are unique in the portable meter market and are designed to make your job easier. In addition to measuring current environmental conditions, the Kestrel 5200 tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data. Your data log can be transferred to an iOS/Android device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless communication option and Kestrel LiNK app, or to a Windows/Mac with either the accessory Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable (Both sold separately).

Use the Kestrel 5200 at work
The Kestrel 5200’s Evaporation Rate calculator allows you to enter the temperature of your concrete mix (from a probe or IR thermometer), then measure conditions at the pour site. The Kestrel 5200 has the American Concrete Institute Evaporation Rate nomograph built in, and displays the Evaporation Rate right on screen with no calculation or error-prone interpolation. With that information in hand, decisions about additives to the mix or curing adjustments can be made, preventing costly plastic shrinkage cracks of the slab. Plus, the Kestrel 5200 allows you to monitor wind-loading on booms and cranes, and even track the heat index on your work site to keep your workers safe.
Volume air flow can not get any easier than this. Simply input the duct shape and dimensions and then traverse the Kestrel 5200 across the duct. You’ll instantly get the average volume air flow without the need for any geometry or calculations. These readings will greatly assist in the commissioning and performance balancing of HVAC systems. While not a full replacement for a balometer, the Kestrel 5200 is far less expensive and can save you time and space in your vehicle. The Kestrel 5200 also offers every commonly used measurement of moisture content in air, making life easy to determine dehumidification needs without the need of more equipment.
Agriculture & Farming
Delta-T provides guidance on the evaporation rate of sprayed chemicals. The Kestrel 5200 calculates and logs on-site Delta-T without any additional user input to accurately assess acceptable spraying conditions to ensure you're within guidelines. When combined with the average wind and max wind gust measurements, you can ensure to spray safely, every time. Use the volume air flow measurement to assess barn ventilation systems. Monitor temperature, humidity and heat index to ensure your animal facilities and feed mixtures are set up for maximum productivity. Measure microclimates on your farm to ensure crops are sited where mold and disease will be minimized.
