    Product Description

    The Kestrel 5500 is a handheld, compact and robust environmental meter and data logger that has distinct monitoring functions for wind direction using a digital compass.

    Have you seen a cheaper Grey Import online? You need to read this before purchasing:
     
    Kestrel meters from the USA do NOT come with a C-Tick, which is required to be imported to AU.
     
    Warranty without a C-Tick will not be covered through the AU distributor/Reseller and will not be their responsibility. In order to receive a unit with the required C-Tick, you must purchase it from an authorized Australian retailer/distributor. You cannot purchase these meters in the USA or anywhere else. If a meter is shipped to you from the USA, you risk the meter being destroyed at customs.
     
    All Kestrel meters supplied by Instrument Choice come with a C-Tick and we offer the full 5 year warranty
