Tough, accurate and affordable, it requires no setup - just hold it up to measure air velocity. It can track maximum and average air velocity along with current readings, and allows you to choose measurement units to suit your application including knots, meters per second, kilometers per hour, miles per hour, feet per minute and the beaufort scale.

The Kestrel 1000-IS holds Certificate of Conformity for Explosion-protected Electrical Equipment to IEC ex iaIP55 issued by SIMTARS.

Every unit is fully tested for measurement accuracy and waterproof integrity and is calibrated to NIST traceable standards.

Every Kestrel Meter features a large, 25mm impeller mounted on a sapphire jewel bearing, which means it starts rotating with the slightest puff of air – 0.3 m/s to be exact! And this unique impeller is user-replaceable, too, which means it can easily be replaced if it is damaged or worn.

If your application demands regular calibration, simply pop in a new impeller and the Kestrel air velocity meter is restored to like-new factory calibration standards.
