Whether you're pouring concrete, balancing HVAC systems, or monitoring jobsite conditions, the Kestrel 5200 takes the calculations and guesswork out of your job with integrated specialty calculations. No more guessing or using inaccurate data from miles away.
Kestrel 5200 Professional Environmental Meter Overview
The next generation of professional environmental monitoring is here with the Kestrel 5200.
The Kestrel 5200 environmental meter and anemometer provides the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original Kestrel 4200 and 4300. 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 5200's new Concrete Target Evaporation Rate Solver displays the level of cracking risk based on user-defined weather conditions and shows which environmental factors may require adjustments in order to prevent plastic shrinkage cracking. With reliable real-time environmental monitoring of jobsite conditions along with accurate predictive calculations, the Kestrel 5200 Professional Environmental Meter with LiNK® Bluetooth Low Energy Technology helps concrete contractors know when to take steps to minimize the risk by adjusting the mix or utilizing protective measures.
It's easy to complete required jobsite documentation with the Kestrel 5200. The 5200 tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data. All of your data can be transferred to a iOS/Android 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).
The Kestrel 5 Series platform offers a large, high-resolution and contrast display with ease of font readability. It also includes a built-in dual color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens, AA battery operation and optional LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support. Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel 5200 is drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage – so it can work as hard as you do, wherever you go. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take your Kestrel meter with you.
Kestrels have been put to the test in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. U.S. Special Forces, combat weather teams, wildland firefighters, smoke jumpers, Mt. Everest expeditions and auto pit crews are just a few who rely on a Kestrel to provide them with the crucial environmental data they need. Watch the Weather Channel during a hurricane, and you’re sure to spot a Kestrel in action. Technicians have been purchasing Kestrel meters for their toolboxes for years, knowing they will provide the readings they need immediately and reliably. Construction managers all over the world have relied on their Kestrel meters to ensure work-site safety and cost-effective concrete pours.
Kestrel LiNK for iOS & Android
The Kestrel LiNK® App for iOS/Android allows you to Wirelessly connect with iOS and Android devices and remotely view real-time environmental data and receive alerts for changing conditions. Available for your Kestrel 5 Series Meter or DROP Logger, Kestrel LiNK also provides easy transfer of the Kestrel’s stored data log, a clear graph of all historical data. Alerts can be customized based on temperature, heat index, wind, or other measurements. LiNK enables easy firmware updates of Kestrel 5 series meters.
Data is transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth® Low Energy within wireless range (100’ line of sight– reduced by walls and obstructions). Mobile device and Kestrel must remain within range to trigger alerts.

For greatest accuracy, avoid direct sunlight on the temperature sensor and prolonged sunlight exposure to the unit in low airflow conditions. Calibration drift is negligible for the life of the product. For further details, see Display & Battery Operational Temperature Limits.|
|Relative Humidity||2%RH||0.1 %RH||10 to 90% 25°C noncondensing||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 is typically less than ±0.25% per year.|

Between 1100–1600 mbar, unit will operate with reduced accuracy. Sensor may not operate above 1600 mbar and can be damaged above 6,000 mbar or below 10 mbar. Calibration drift is negligible for the life of the product.|
|Compass||5°||1° 1/16th Cardinal Scale||0 to 360°||2-axis solid-state magneto-resistive sensor mounted perpendicular to unit plane. Accuracy of sensor dependent upon unit’s vertical position. Self-calibration routine eliminates magnetic error from batteries or unit and must be run after every full power- down (battery removal or change).
