The Kestrel 5500 pocket weather tracker is Kestrels environmental meter and has the capability of a mini weather station. The choice of Kestrel 5500 models is between the basic 0855YEL ( 914-0003 ) and the Bluetooth LiNK 0855LVYEL ( 914-0012 ). Both offer distinctive monitoring functions for digital compass, wind direction, crosswind and headwind/tailwind. These features make the 5500 the Kestrel meter of choice for military professionals, HAZMAT teams and flight crews. Both models have a bright green backlight - for even, high sunlight conditions - and a night-vision preserving backlight. The red night vision (NV) backlight incorporates an optical filter to reduce overall brightness and minimise blue and green spectrum light (this night vision is not compatible with night-vision equipment - basically, with the red backlight, eyes dont need to adjust when looking from meter to the horizon in night-time use).
