The Kestrel 5400 Cattle Heat Stress Tracker offers micro-climate measurement and monitoring at the field, barn and cow house locations.
The unit contains a built-in Globe Temperature sensor and complete cattle-specific calculations. You simply input your herd and enclosure parameters to measure Temperature Humidity Index (THI) and Heat Load Index (HLI) and monitor Accumulated Heat Load Units (AHLU). The Kestrel 5400 Cattle Heat Stress Tracker is designed to help you measure and manage your herd’s heat stress, ensuring you maximise your profits.
The Kestrel 5400AG also calculates and logs over 10,000 sets of time-stamped data.
The Kestrel 5400AG has Bluetooth connectivity allowing you to transfer data wirelessly to an iOS (iPhone, iPad) device or Android smartphone or tablet when within range using the appropriate Kestrel LiNK App. You can also transfer data wirelessly to a Windows or Mac computer using the optional Kestrel Bluetooth USB Dongle (sold separately). Data can be viewed live on the App up to 100 feet away (line of sight).
When combined with the Kestrel Vane Mount and Kestrel Tripod the Kestrel 5400AG becomes a stand-alone environmental monitoring station as the large wind vane and precision pivot keep the Kestrel oriented into the wind for continuous measurement and logging of all the key environmental parameters at the exact location required.
Mil-SPEC-810G drop tested with an IP67 waterproof rating the Kestrel 5400AG is designed and constructed to withstand the harsh treatment it will receive in the agricultural industry. The unit comes with a five-year warranty and certificate of conformity as standard.
