The Kestrel 3000HS delivers relative humidity, dew point and heat stress index readings in the palm of your hand, These measurements are critical when setting limits for outdoor activities in high temperatures and/or humid conditions, helping to define rest periods and rehydration frequency.
Used by athletes, coaches, activity centres, fire fighters and health and safety executives.
Mil-SPEC-810G drop tested with an IP67 waterproof rating, the Kestrel 5400FW is designed and constructed specifically for heat stress monitoring. A five year warranty and certificate of conformity, come as standard.

|Polymer capacitive humidity sensor mounted in thin-walled chamber external to case for rapid, accurate response (US Patent 6,257,074). To achieve stated accuracy, unit must be permitted to equilibrate to external temperature when exposed to large, rapid temperature changes and be kept out of direct sunlight. Calibration drift +/- 2% over 24 months. RH may be recalibrated at factory or in field using Kestrel Humidity Calibration Kit (NK PN-0802).|
|Wind Chill||°F||0.1||1.8 °F||Refer to stated ranges for wind speed and temp.||Perceived temperature resulting from combined effect of wind speed and temperature. Calculated based on the NWS Wind Chill Temperature (WCT) Index, revised 2001, with wind speed adjusted by a factor of 1.5 to yield equivalent results to wind speed measured at 10 m above ground. Specification temperature limits established by WCT Tables.|
|Heat Index||°F||0.1||3.6 °F||Refer to stated ranges for temp. and relative humidity.||Perceived temperature resulting from the combined effect of temperature and relative humidity. Calculated based on NWS Heat Index (HI) tables. (Specification temperature limits established by HI tables.)|
|Dewpoint||°F||0.1||3.6 °F||Refer to stated ranges for temp. and relative humidity.||Temperature to which the air must be cooled at a constant pressure for water vapour to condense into water. Calculated from temperature and relative humidity.|
|Max/Avg Wind||One-button clear and restart of Max Wind Gust and Average Wind measurement by powering down and restarting unit.|
|Display & Backlight||Reflective 3 1/2 digit LCD. Digit height 0.36 in / 9 mm. Aviation green electroluminescent backlight (except in Kestrel 1000). Manual activation with auto-off.|
|Response Time & Display Update||All measurements except those based on relative humidity respond accurately within 1 second. Relative humidity and all measurements which include RH in their calculation may require as long as 1 minute to fully equilibrate to a large change in the measurement environment. Display updates every 1 second.|
|Operational & Storage Temperature Range||The operational temperature range of the liquid crystal display and batteries is 14° F to 131° F / -10 °C to 55 °C. Measurements beyond the operational range can be taken by briefly exposing unit to extreme conditions such that the display and batteries remain within the operational range. Storage range -22 °F to 140 °F / -30 °C to 60 °C.|
|Auto Shutdown||After 45 minutes of no key presses.|
|Certifications||CE certified, RoHS and WEEE compliant. Individually tested to NIST-traceable standards (written certificate of tests available at additional charge).|
|Battery||CR2032, one, included. Average life, 300 hours. Battery life reduced by backlight use in 2000 to 3500 models.|
|Environmental||Waterproof (IP67 and NEMA-6). MIL-STD-810F, Transit Shock, Method 516.5 Procedure IV; unit only; impact may damage replaceable impeller.|
|Size & Weight||4.8 x 1.9 x 1.1 in / 12.2 x 4.8 x 2.8 cm, 3.6 oz / 102 g (including slip-on cover).|
