Showcased for the first time at CES, Kestrel DROPs are wireless environmental data loggers that measure temperature, humidity and station pressure (model dependent), and connect wirelessly to the Kestrel Connect App to view logged data on iOS devices.

Kestrel DROPs have Arrived

We recently released the Kestrel DROP rugged wireless environmental data logger along with the Kestrel Connect iOS app. We know we’re going to meet customers at CES with creative ideas for how to put it to work!

Kestrel® Weather & Environmental Meters, a brand trusted by users for more than 15 years for waterproof, rugged and accurate weather and environmental monitoring instruments, will be launching its new product line of wireless temperature and humidity data loggers at International CES 2015. Kestrel DROP Loggers are the world’s easiest-to-use rugged temperature and humidity data loggers. With a Kestrel DROP, users can measure and track the conditions of most indoor and outdoor environments and easily access real-time and historical data on a phone or tablet. Kestrel DROP loggers are powered by the full-featured Kestrel Connect App available free in the App Store.

Kestrel DROP loggers transmit data up to 100 feet line of sight via Bluetooth® Smart to a user’s mobile device. With the Kestrel Connect app, users are then able to share real-time and logged data by email, text message and social media without any wiring or complicated setup. Simply place a DROP wherever you need precise and accurate readings.

There are three models of Kestrel DROP depending on the user’s measurement needs:

  •     Kestrel DROP® D1 – temperature
  •     Kestrel DROP® D2 – temperature, humidity, heat index and dew point temperature
  •     Kestrel DROP® D3 – temperature, humidity, heat index, dew point temperature, density altitude, station pressure and pressure trend.

All three models are available in red, blue and desert tan. All are completely water- and dustproof (sealed to IP-67 standards) and drop tested to military standards (MIL-STD-810G transit shock). Kestrel DROP wireless environmental data loggers can measure, store and transmit readings over a wide temperature range (0° to 140 °F, -18° to 60°C) and extended periods of time (up to six months depending on logging interval).

“We’ve been creating exciting new solutions for our customers that need to know weather or environmental conditions for their jobs, missions and hobbies,” says Alix James, CEO of Nielsen-Kellerman in Boothwyn, Pennsylvania. “We recently released the Kestrel DROP rugged wireless environmental data logger along with the Kestrel Connect iOS app. We know we’re going to meet customers at CES with creative ideas for how to put it to work!”
