5400FW Fire Weather Meter Pro WBGT with LiNK, Compass and Vane Mount

Wildland firefighters train to withstand the challenge of heavy exertion in extreme conditions. Extreme heat is a constant companion, and protective gear exacerbates the physical strain on a firefighter's body. Building heat acclimatization is a critical component of training, but doing so without incurring heat illness or injury is equally critical and challenging. Heat injury is a constant danger with many incidents of heat related illness occurring every year. Heat illness prevention programs recommend measuring Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) and implementing ACGIH work/recovery and hydration guidelines. WBGT is a much more complete measure of heat stress for the firefighter because it includes the effects of the radiant heat of the sun, fire, or hot surfaces. The Kestrel Fire Weather Meter PRO WBGT adds the WBGT measurement to the full capability of the Fire Weather Meter Pro – making it the complete tool for monitoring WBGT and fire weather during training or operations. With pre-programmed ACGIH guidelines and alert settings to indicate when conditions have become extremely unsafe, the Kestrel Fire Weather Meter PRO with WBGT is the ultimate tool for increasing the safety of your crew.

Unlike other WBGT meters on the market, the Kestrel 5400 Fire Weather Pro WBGT is also a rugged, compact and easy-to-use portable weather station. Clip the Kestrel 5400 into the secure tripod vane mount to set up a weather and heat safety monitoring station in seconds. Measure wind speed, direction, temperature, humidity, pressure, dew point, elevation, density altitude, PIG, FDFM and more. In addition to measuring the current environmental conditions, the Kestrel 5400 Fire Weather Pro tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data. Your data log can be transferred to an iOS/Android device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless communication option and free Kestrel LiNK app, then exported and shared via email with ease. Data can also be transfered to a Windows/Mac device with either the accessory Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable (both sold separately).

The Kestrel 5400 Fire Weather Meter Pro WBGT offers a large, high-resolution and contrast display and easy font readability. It also includes a built-in dual color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation, along with LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support. Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel 5400 Fire Weather Pro WBGT is drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage – so it can so it can work as hard as you do.

This meter measures: Altitude, Barometric Pressure, Crosswind/Headwind/Tailwind, Density Altitude, Dew Point, Wind Direction and Orientation, Fine Dead Fuel Moisture,Globe Temperature, Heat Stress Index, Naturally Aspirated Wet Bulb Temperature, Pressure Trend, Probability of Ignition, Relative Humidity, Station Pressure (Absolute Pressure) Temperature, Thermal Work Limit, Wet Bulb Temperature (Psychrometer), Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT), Wind Chill and Wind Speed.

Log, View and Share on the Kestrel LiNK App

Kestrel LiNK is the free app that powers the Fire Weather DROP data logger. With Kestrel LiNK on your smart phone or tablet, you can view real-time readings from any DROP logger within wireless range (up to 100' or more line of sight) via Bluetooth low energy. Min/Max/Average readings are clearly displayed and the data log is viewable as a scrolling graph with detailed data for each logged point. The Kestrel LiNK app also allows adjustment of the logging interval and other settings as well as real-time threshold alerts. Readings can be updated as frequently as every 2 seconds and logging time and date are automatically updated whenever connected to your smart device. You can also send and share real-time and logged environmental data via email, Facebook or Twitter.
