The 5500 is the top-of-the-range portable weather station in the Kestrel range

5500 Kestrel

The Kestrel 5500 is a powerful portable weather station that can detect a large amount of data and transfer it to smartphones, tablets, PCs or MACs.


The Kestrel line is known worldwide for the superiority in the accuracy of the data collected and for the durability of the instrument. Today the Kestrel 5500 is at the top of this historic product line.

The Kestrel 5500 is not only a weather data collector for its own sake, but also a tool that can communicate with smartphones, tablets and PCs to create a weather station suitable for the most demanding professional needs.

The LiNK model connects via Bluetooth to smartphones or tablets and can be managed with a very professional app, which can be downloaded free of charge. The App is available for both Android and iOS devices. While the model without LiNK is not able to connect via Bluetooth to smartphones and tablets.

To be connected to a PC with Windows operating system, you need to purchase the USB cable separately or, for the model with LiNK, the LiNK Dongle Bluetooth accessory.

Compared to the previous series, the screen is larger and offers more definition. It is also equipped with two different backlights, one in the red Night Vision suitable for not being dazzled in case of use in full darkness.

Two models are available, both in olive colour. The first refers to the version without LiNK not suitable for communication via Bluetooth and the other with LiNK (Bluetooth) and Banderuola suitable for use with Smartphones and Tablets.
