What's new with the Kestrel 5500FW over the StandardKestrel 5500:

You'll get all the features and benefits of the lightweight waterless 5500 Meter with a few added benefits for $10 more.  

  • PIG Screen (Probability of Ignition) 
  • FDFM  (Fine Dead Fuel Moisture)

* Note the PIG Screen will show FDFM at the bottom.

Advantage over the Kestrel 3000 & Kestrel 3500FW models: You won't need to calibrate this meter! NK/Kestrel stand by this and other 5000 series models to hold calibration within drift for 5 years.  

Replacing a Sling Psychrometer with a Kestrel is a huge step in time saving and accuracy.  Some have struggled to take this leap and we wrote this quick Kestrel vs. Sling article that may answer questions of accuracy.

Calibration:
Kestrel will stand by the RH for 5 years, and will adjust it within that 5 years if needed.  
Kestrel will repair, recalibrate or replace any defective product within the warranty period.  “Defective” includes measurements outside of our accuracy spec plus stated drift.

RH (Relative Humidity):  See Chart for more detail.

  • Accuracy:  +/- 2%RH
  • Sensors:  10 to 90% 25°C non-condensing
  • Calibration Drift: Typically less than +/- 0.25% per year!

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.
