Wet globe temperature monitoring with the Kestrel 4400 can help to reduce the chances of those who are working and training outdoors from becoming ill or even dying due to heat related illnesses.
Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
Wet Globe Temperature Monitoring or “WBGT”, a critical measurement for monitoring heat stress, is one of the most important features found in the recently launched Kestrel 4400 heat stress meter, according to online retailers KestrelMeters.com. Wet globe temperature monitoring with the Kestrel 4400 can help to reduce the chances of those who are working and training outdoors from becoming ill or even dying due to heat related illnesses. Tracking intense weather conditions and the amount of stress that they put on the body has become a major concern for many groups who work and train outdoors, as the number of deaths and injury that occur as a result of overexposure to heat continues to rise each year.
In addition to monitoring the WBGT, the Kestrel 4400 also tracks the Thermal Work Limit or “TWL”, barometric temperature, average wind speed, mean radiant temperature (TWL) and several other key environmental factors. The meter, which is on sale now at KestrelMeters.com, is used to protect athletes, military units, law enforcement, construction workers and others who regularly work or train in warm weather environments, by regularly monitoring atmospheric conditions and sounding alarms when situations become too dangerous to work or train in.
Kestrelmeters.com provides details on the Kestrel 4400 on its website, making it easy for athletes and coaches, construction workers and members of the military to learn more about monitoring WBGT. The site also sells weather meter accessories, including cases, calibration tools, replacement parts and tripods. The weather meters on kestrelmeters.com include a variety of features depending on the model – the more basic models track wind, humidity and temperature, while the more advanced models have the capability to track air density, concrete moisture (for construction work) and have Bluetooth functionality.
