The Kestrel 5000AG Livestock Environmental Meter Measures
5 Year Manufacturer's Warranty
The Kestrel 5000AG Livestock Environmental Meter is an indispensable instrument for farmers, veterinarians, and animal handlers.
This compact and robust environmental meter offers precise measurements for evaluating ventilation efficacy, barn climate, bovine thermal pressure, ambient velocity, outdoor microclimates, storing conditions, and other transportation security requirements.
The Kestrel 5000AG is designed to support the needs of livestock, agricultural, and animal health professionals. Producers, growers, vets, and consultants in various agricultural domains can benefit from the insights this lightweight, handheld, multi-function meter provides regarding micro-climate conditions and data recording. Providing spot measurements both indoors and outdoors, it stores over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data. With the custom Kestrel 5 Series Rotating Vane Mount, the Kestrel 5000AG can be used as a stable weather station for extended observation periods.
Heat Stress Management with THI:
THI, (Temperature-Humidity Index) has been used for decades as a measure to classify heat stress risk in many livestock production and transportation operations. This measurement includes both temperature and relative humidity and is a basis for both strategic and tactical management practices which benefit animal health, productivity and well-being. The Kestrel 5000AG calculates and logs on-site THI based on user selection of either the NRC(National Research Council, 1971) or Yousef (Yousef, 1985) accepted THI calculations. Objective and accurate site-specific measurements are critical to ensuring a heat stress management strategy that is cost effective; and they're at your fingertips with the 5000AG.
Barn / Housing Ventilation Assessments:
The Kestrel 5000AG measures air speed and air flow to identify drafts, gauge fan effectiveness and verify duct velocity. It takes duct shape/dimensions into account for precise volume air flow comparison. No calculator needed; menu picks and built-in averaging provide accurate readings immediately.Choose Kestrel LiNK Option to Add the Power of Apps:
LiNK, Kestrel's Bluetooth® low energy-powered system, is included with the Kestrel 5000AG. With LiNK, users can view custom dashboards of real-time readings on iOS, Android, PC, or Mac devices up to 100' away. Additionally, users can download stored data and update their Kestrel's firmware with the latest improvements.
Connecting to Windows and Mac computers is available via the optional LiNK USB Dongle or Data Transfer Cable, allowing you to download, view, analyze and archive your data. Additionally, updating the firmware of Kestrel 5 series meters is enabled.
Recent iOS and Android devices include built-in Bluetooth® low energy technology; for connection to a PC or Mac, a Kestrel LiNK USB Dongle must be purchased. Conversely, non-LiNK units can be connected to computers but not phones or tablets, requiring the Kestrel USB Data Cable.
Tested in harsh conditions, U.S. Special Forces, combat weather teams, wildland firefighters, smoke jumpers, Mt. Everest expeditions, auto pit crews, veterinarians, and farmers rely on Kestrel to provide crucial data, avoid property damage, reduce livestock losses, and maximize productivity. Shouldn’t YOU?
