Un equipo obligado para ganaderos, veterinarios y manejadores de ganado. Su tamaño es de bolsillo, de uso rudo y preciso para medir la efectividad de la ventilación, condiciones de los corrales, estrés por calor, velocidad del aire, microclimas en campo, condiciones de almacenaje, seguridad de transporte, etc.
The Kestrel 5000AG is designed to meet the needs of livestock, agriculture and
animal health professionals. Producers, growers, veterinarians, and consultants
in every field of agriculture will gain vital information regarding micro-climate
conditions needed to maximize performance and profitability. This lightweight,
handheld, multi-function meter can be used inside and out for spot measurement
of current conditions and also tracks and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped
data. Clip the Kestrel 5000AG into the custom Kestrel 5 Series Rotating Vane Mount
and you have a sturdy weather station that can be left in place for days or weeks.
Heat Stress Management with THI:
THI, (Temperature-Humidity Index) has been used for decades as a measure to
classify heat stress risk in many livestock production and transportation operations.
This measurement includes both temperature and relative humidity and is a basis
for both strategic and tactical management practices which benefit animal health,
productivity and well-being. The Kestrel 5000AG calculates and logs on-site
THI based on user selection of either the NRC(National Research Council, 1971)
or Yousef(Yousef, 1985) accepted THI calculations. Objective and accurate site-specific
measurements are critical to ensuring a heat stress management strategy that
is cost effective; and they're at your fingertips with the 5000AG.
Barn / Housing Ventilation Assessments:
Regardless of the type of barn/house design all livestock require proper ventilation
and air movement to maximize health, growth, and comfort. The Kestrel 5000AG
provides air speed and air flow measurements to quickly quantify air movement
in the vicinity of livestock, locate drafts, measure fan effectiveness and confirm
duct discharge velocity. Volume air flow takes duct shape and dimensions into
account and allows for accurate comparison of various locations in a system.
No calculator is needed to determine airflow with the Kestrel 5000AG
a few quick menu picks and built-in averaging gives you accurate readings instantly.
For ducts that are out of reach, use the Kestrel LiNK app to view your Kestrel
mounted on an extension pole with the Kestrel 5 Series Clip (requires LiNK option).
Microclimate, Harvest and Storage Conditions:
Many livestock professionals also grow and store grains, hay and other feedstuffs.
The Kestrel 5000AG can measure micro-climates around the farm to determine where
mold and disease may be a problem, ensuring conditions are right for harvesting,
drying, and storage. Leave the Kestrel 5000AG in place anywhere in th field,
barn or greenhouse to get a graphical history of overnight conditions, (the
Kestrel 5 Series Rotating Vane Mount and a ¼-20 camera clamp or tripod
makes it easy).
Choose Kestrel LiNK Option to Add the Power of Apps:
LiNK is Kestrel’s wireless data communication system, powered by Bluetooth® low energy. Choose the Kestrel 5000AG with LiNK option and you get full iOS, Android, PC and Mac app support. See real-time readings on your phone or tablet on a customizable dashboard up to 100’ away (line of sight). Download stored data from your Kestrel to save or share it. Plus, you can update the firmware on your Kestrel when improvements are released.
